well, the second i finished joel i wanted to start work on ellie, but forced myself to take a break so i wouldn't burn out. and by "break" i mean something like twelve hours before i started working on sketches and pulling fabrics.
i used a doll wig on my miranda, but for ellie here i used an actual human sized wig. i wanted to make sure i got something with a good bang "swoop". cutting down a full-sized wig and styling it to fit a plush was a real pain, but i'm happy with the results.
the shirt was made with an iron on transfer, and i make a little comic for her out of cardstock. the fireflies pendant is mine, but i was wearing it when i went to take this picture, so i took it off and added it to the shot. ^.^
