ADO Elements Challenge

The Element - Water
I created an octopus lady. It's difficult to see but her skin is a hand dyed mottled cotton and her body is a store purchased batik print.
I used acrylic paints, colored pencils and micron pens for the face. Her hair is natural mohair.Of course it isn't a photo shoot unless Mesa can help.
well

  3. Your doll has such a lovely face -- and I like the way her hair flows around her as if she's underwater. Well done!
