The Sea and Me: 1 the Mermaid

The Kokeshi Doll work reminded me that while in exile I made and explored dolls. I
remembered a mermaid doll that I freeformed at the height of that dollmaking while
away from home, tools and comfort.

I found her, looked at her and thought of ways I wanted her to change a bit. Now that I am pattern writing I wish I knew what I did to achieve her seamless curvaciousness.

So I embarked on remaking her.

This time she was a bit too slim in the hips for me, but I liked her longer head and longer neck.
