Goddess -  Custom Fantasy Doll by IvyHeartDesigns Goddess -  Custom Fantasy Doll by IvyHeartDesigns
I created Goddess using a Tonner Tess Trueheart 16 inch vinyl doll. All her original factory paint was removed and she was given a full custom repaint with realistic 3d shading and a light spray of freckles over the nose area. All her factory hair was fully removed and I rooted in a full head of hair using Katsilk Saran, including a side part. It was then washed, conditioned and layer cut. To finish off her look, I created a gorgeous costume... just fit for a Goddess! Hope you like her!


I am not affiliated with the Tonner Company in any way. I simply use their wonderful dolls as a canvas for my own artistic expression! :)

Yes, thats true. I guess each type of doll has something going for it. Many collectors I've spoken too find it difficult to display the Tonners because of their size, which is the downside of collecting them. But yes, they definitely have some gorgeous sculpts! :)

I clicked on your gallery to see your digital art and found that you are a OOAK artist! I used to do that years ago, back in the late 1990's up until around 2003 and then I moved on to photography and digital art. I was featured in one of Jim Faraone's doll artist books way back when. Sometimes I miss creating them! :)

Wow! Thats wonderful. I bet you do miss this type of work. I've been dabbling in digital art a little over the last several months... and I really love it but I think it would drive me nuts if I couldn't work with my doll art. Do you have a picture of the work that was featured in Jim's books? I would love to see some of your work! Maybe you should have a little dabble back in it every now and then... hehehe... am I enticing you?? :hug:

I do have pictures but they have to be scanned...I was doing it back in pre-digi days! OMG..how old I feel,lol.
I did recently buy a Barbie to do a 40's vintage look on (one of my favorites) so just maybe I may be doing one again!
My favorite one I ever did was a complete set of Henry VIII and his 6 wives. I wish I would have kept that one and not sold it. But, I can always do it again!LOL!! I would love to scan a pic and show it to you. Is there a way to email you a photo on here?

Digital art is so amazing isn't it? I love that you can erase it and start over,lol. Not so easy to do with traditonal art!

So good to chat with you! Keep up the great work!
hugs,
Laura

I really like the finished affect, I just wish the photo showed off the freckles a little more. I like all the tribal decorations on her face, and her hair looks really nice :heart:

Thankyou very much sweetie! Yes, I know... the camera doesn't always show the more subtle features in her painting... which is a shame cause I LOVE freckles! :hug:

Thanks so much Ella! The sculpt I used for this girl has strong facial features but still looks so feminine... I think that really appealed to me. :heart:

Yes very feminine, but I personally believe that strong features is a sign of a strong person, so the doll you picked was perfect for a goddess. :heart:
Great job again! :heart:

To Me, art is at its most beautiful, when the artist experiments with themselves. Using their creativity, use of colour and most of all their emotions and coming up with a work of art, such as this piece, that is not only original but unique as well....:icontyttataudnor:
