Yet there was room for changes before completion and I also added a joint in the middle section of the torso, allowing a break in the posture that can be chosen at will.
I actually like this very much that the doll is not covered all by "clothes that hide the structure...what do you think?
I sure will explore ever more this possibility for dolls, as the movement and the line in itself should be expressive enough already, frills and ruffles enhancing but certainly not hiding the line. Here, her covering is rather a texture than a piece of clothe, except for the shrug and she does not feel naked does she.
Cerf was a good opportunity to try this as it is more of an anthropomorphic representation.
Cerf structure is supported on itself and entirely needle felted from scratch, no armature, joints linked by thread at neck, hips and arms, torso. Sometimes, less is more, seems the good choice.
You can check my Zaza doll as well, built in the same spirit (although with armature).
