Drawing Challenge:Paper Doll Drama

Well there she is.....not as elegant as some other paper girls half fisherwife and half "you'd never believe I was an acrobat in a circus once" She also looks annoyed not angry just annoyed constantly.
Im not even sure I like her she looks a bit formidable and I have no idea where she came from she just appeared from the end of my pen but here she is anyway with press stud joints and bright green skirt......

To enjoy some more Drawing challenge response pop on over to Normas blog and follow the links.

Dear Helen,
I'm sitting here with my first coffee when your papergirl pops up!
Formidable performance, Lady!

I love these surprises of outcoming at the pen... they are mostly honest. Like yours.

Did you fixed her on the canvas?

Best to you both!

For a brief moment,i thought 'zebra girl' but than she showed up a real 'don't play your game on me or do not fool me' girl and i somehow like her attitude A LOT, your sponateity amuses me, x

My husband laughed and called her pressstud girl I think I like zebragirl but unfortunbately its more camp cook at a sheep shearing station woman with a penchance for stripes hahahaha

I just had her laid on top of the canvas I thought I might add some speech bubbles I still might!

ha, my dear one in oz!
formidable... one of my favourite words in the english language, especially when spoken by j.nicholson in SOMETHING'S GOTTA GIVE... mhm...

yes, i wonder why puppet is looking annoyed? brave though to leave her as is. always interesting to indeed wonder why.

her skirt design, helen, is flabberghastingly beautiful.

oh, I love her! I think she is an acrobat and waiting for her first great show, looking to a hypercritical audience...

Helen you had me laughing heartily with tears running down my cheeks. I love this doll. Her outfit is so stylin. The green with strong black and white accent pattern could be on the runways of Paris!
Actually, now that I look at this paper gal she herself would look at home on the runways of Paris. She has the right attitude. Awesome fabulous creation here! Love her. I'd invite her on a play date with any of my paper dolls any day! *smiles* Norma

Dear Helen,
may I please invite you for the next drawing challenge? I'll be the host with SHADOW this weekend.

yes Norma I can see a runway in Paris.... Zebra girl as muse/bodyguard to Galliano.... closing the show by carrying Galliano in a reclining pose above her head throwing flowers into the audience.
Im also convinced there are tattoos lurking under that stripey catsuit.

Oh dear too much Madonna/Prince/Boy George influence in my early years methinks.
Heh heh heh

How fun, I want to play :)!

Stefanie Seltner said...

she´s funny, I love her face - sometime it is like that, isn´t it?
My first thinking was: is she a prisoner? because of her dress.
best wishes, x Stefanie

objectsofwhimsy said...

Hi Elisabeth!
would love to have you play along Ive sent you an email with the details.

Helen :)

Dear Stefanie
Zebra girl has done a stint in jail for chaining herself to the front door at Parliment House.
Her cause was equal rights for female circus performers.
She hadnt meant to swallow the key for the lock but she didnt have any pockets.......in her lycra bodysuit
