POLL: Vintage baby sculpt!

Post by EmilyJ »

Please scroll to the bottom of the page to see pictures of my inspiration! :D

Okay, lets start over on this poll. I want to make sure people understand the intention behind this baby, so I'm giving people a chance to vote again. :D

I would like to introduce my new baby girl, Sweet Cheeks. :D I wanted this little girl to be in the style of a vintage baby doll with the very chubby cheeks and curly hair. I love old baby dolls and I am particularly inspired by the work of Bessie Pease Gutmann, Maud Tousey Fangel, and other similar artists. She is different than my usual sculpts and not exactly a realistic newborn, so I hope everyone likes her! Sweet Cheeks could potentially be a doll kit or completed manufactured vinyl baby, but I'm not sure how popular she would be. So please vote on the poll and let me know what you think! :D I hope there are other vintage doll lovers out there! You can see all of Sweet Cheek's photos here:

Thanks for looking!

This is the belly plate that I made for her. But, if she was produced I just hope it would come out right after the shrinkage!

Emily, I think she's adorable! She reminds me of me when I was about 9mths. The only thing different is that I have a slight dimpled chin.....I was cubby and blond hair. I think she's going to be terrific.

Enjoy,

I voted reborn kit mostly because I would love to see her with red or dark hair but she is wonderful as a blond too. That way we can see her many different ways and those feet are to die for sooo cute.

I meant to pick reborn doll kit and hit the one below by mistake so it should be 17 for kit and 12 for completed baby :oops:

Thank you everyone for your nice comments! :D Grandmasheryl, I love the pictures of you and your mom as babies! :heart: I actually sculpted Sweet Cheeks off pictures of babies around 4 months old, but I could definitely see her as an older baby too!

I adore her. THe first thing i thought was a Luca resemblance too, but still different. I LOVE how you sculpted her little arms and legs. Her hands are beautiful.

I love her limbs as they remind me of my youngest granddaughter. I am not crazy about the head though. The limbs look like they need to go with a younger head but still chubby. I guess it is because I keep seeing my grandbaby's face lol

Thanks everyone! :D I appreciate those who took the time to reply! You know, I didn't even realize that she resembled Luca until people started mentioning it. I guess she might look a little like a chubbier version of Luca. I love the Luca kit too, so I take it as a compliment! :D
