YOSHITOMO NARA "Missing in Action"

Well this is how it looks finished... was ready for the birthday :)

It look great in person the hair can be taked out easily. i give her on a cardboard box with red velvet on the inside wich make the doll look great and very "pro" now that the gift was given on time, i take the piece and gonna take her to "surgery" there are some deatais i didnt like, ex: the eyes should be way bigger, less cheeks in the front view the holes of the nose wider, the hair less rounded (front view), the smile is asimetrical, the sleeves more larger, arms a little more "chubby" the head will be rotated to the left, the neck of the dress more rounded and the legs have changes, but cannot be made as they look on the paint beacause on the paint the legs are almost in tiptoes so is impossible that the legs can hold the whole sculpture... any ways hope you like it so far...


Obviously she gonna be unpainted and repainte again, the dress is gonna be less red is kinda like more orange and will be painted by hand to get the style right, the face arms and legs gona be painted again by airbrush...

I think you should be incredibly proud of the result! You really did an amazing job having worked only from a flat painting!!

I like the red dress, it's a nice bright contrast to her light skin and dark hair.

How tall does she stand?
