Hairy Munny

This is my 2nd time to custom one of those vinyl dolls. This particular MUNNY was an assignment to try and showcase a particular fashion icon, without having it be figurative. I chose Amy Winehouse as my "icon" because she has that crazy bee hive hairdo. I figured it'd be cool to draw her hair (since I'm still in that hair phase) all over the doll to break the figurative form and keep it more abstract.

To be honest, her music isn't that bad at all. Her crackhead image just throws me off.

6 coats of gesso and sanding took forever!

Surface design is not as easy as you think, especially when you're using just graphite alone.

The finish piece! Note to self: next time wear gloves to avoid smudges.
