The story of this doll was very long. My first attempt to make a smiling doll started about four years ago. In 2013, I sculpted a smiling face which became the base for Gracie, but I wasn’t happy with the quality. Years after, I decided to finish this project, improved the face model and – finally – my doll girl came alive! I like how she turned out, exactly as I wanted – cheerful, playful, with sparkling eyes. I hope you like her as I do!
Here you can see the doll’s face when I started it in 2013:
