Just have at it. We’re both big proponents of hands-on learning, and the best way to learn is to do just that… get stuck in. There are innumerable ways to go about it, and almost every artist does it differently, with a different focus.
Bear in mind however that there is going to be a learning curve, and be okay with that. One of the biggest issues we tend to see from people starting out is that they aren’t doing any design; they’re just looking at the artists they like in the doll community, and making something that’s pretty derivative. Not only is that frustrating for the other artists, but it means you aren’t actually developing your own style & aesthetic.
So before you even start, think about the things you like - and I don’t mean which art dolls. I mean everything. Do you like nature? Think about the shapes that occur within that, the textures, the colour palettes. Look at different artistic movements through history. Look at photography. Hell, even the things in your personal life that may seem trivial are going to inform your art in the end, so recognize ‘em.
I have a tendency to like odd colour palettes, which really goes back to the fact my grandma made me a patchwork quilt with about 47 thousand different colours on it as a kid. I used to hide underneath it with my lamp shining down on the patches, so that inside all the colours glowed like a cathedral.
This is the sort of stuff to think about that’ll help you develop your own recognizable style & voice.
Then, practice. Draw and sculpt what you see, then moosh it. Don’t get precious with it.
Our other big sort of subheading as far as advice goes is, take some classes.
Find a ceramics class, or sculpting class. Find people who’ve got the ability to teach, and get some critiques. Be open to constructive criticism. Learn to love the mistakes you make, ‘cause those are the times in which you’re going to learn the most.
(Like when I didn’t listen to my mentor who was pretty sure my horrendously detailed dragon wasn’t QUITE dry yet, and I decided to throw him in the kiln anyway. 16,000 little jigsaw pieces of dragon later, lesson learned!)
Again, I always end up going on longer than I intended, but have at it and have fun.
This movie is something else lol
Not Another Teen Movie is the only Not Another movie that’s worth watching every time.
