Something Different Benny

Meet Benny.  I've decided to take a day a week and work on something different from what I normally do.  Benny is what has come of those days.

I thought about approaching the head from a totally different and quite opposite direction than my normal loopy dolls.  Typically my dolls eyes are big with tiny facial features.  Benny on the other hand has teeny eyes and huge facial features.  I really like the way he came out.  He's full of wonder with a little hesitation. 

I'm looking forward to exploring new designs, it's good for my creative soul:)

I really like the way you did his face! I'm loving the small eyes.

Colleen, I have been feeling rather
listless lately and reading this post and seeing Benny has inspired me to just 'do something' and try something different.

I really like Benny - a change yes, but very successful! Good for you for trying something different!

He is wonderful and still so quintessentially Loopy!

I love all your creations!
That's so cool that you decided to explore something different!
I would have said "Hey! Don't mess with perfection" but as always, you knew best! Very cool! Love him!

I think he's fascinating--and love the story about his frog-dog. :~)

(His Etsy listing says "she" though...just so you know.)
