Do you ever get a wild hair and do something so crazy that you wonder what who on earth got you into this mess and then realize it was you and have no one to blame?
I decided to redesign all of Alex's tattoo's yesterday.
This is a huge deal for me, not just because of the dolls (all thirteen of them. THIRTEEN) but because of the comic and all my art.
At least four of them are too young for tatts.
I'm wiping Alex I down this weekend (tomorrow, after a day of dolly fun with the peeps -- which is also my Birthday! Yay! Doll fun on my bday!! Also, my dog's birthday is the day after, and my cat turns 17 on the 27th (he old). And I ordered Alex april 7, in 2008 - so his bday is coming up too - may 6 - he's the only doll who gets anything at all) so he'll be all sparkly and clean as a wee babe. 2.5 was wiped already, III will be next and II was never actually re-tattooed after getting his DC body so he's already blank.
In the grand tradition of being experimented on, Alex I will be the first to get them back, though I have to do the designing first. I'm doing it the right way this time. Lots of sketching and placement on the body mock-ups I drew yesterday. A few of them will stay the same -- the Rose, Yin Yang, infinity thorn band on his wrist, the 666 and A&...Omega on his hands. He also has Life is Pain (what movie is that from?!?!?! GUESS!) on his back that won't change. Everything else is getting redone. I did the the tramp stamp on his back this morning and so far I don't hate it. I might have to think about it a little more before making it "permanent" though. The wings will somewhat the same though I want to change them up a little first.
So sometime in the next decade, all my Alexes might be finished. Maybe....
I don't know why I decided to do this now - When I have a hundred and fifty seven other doll things I have started and need to work on......but I've really needed to fix them for a while. I started adding "ink" to him years ago and only gave certain ones any significance....the rest were just tacked on him lol. I think I can do better. The thing that really bothers me is that I had his arms showing in my comic....oh well. Continuity, I don't has it.
Also I finished Woleverine's faceup....but I'm not sure how I feel about it. I have to look at it a little more I think. I might post a picture. I took a couple with my phone....but they're not great.
I hope everyone has a good weekend! :D
