A pirate’s life for me!

Pirate doll final
Here’s the finished doll and background! Im pretty happy with how the whole thing turned out but I definitely won’t be working this small next time I try something along these lines.

Materials used: For the doll the face and hands are painted sculpey on a body made of wire and tin foil, the clothing is felt, linen, silk, wool, and thread and the book was made out of paper sewn and glued together. The background images were made from painted watercolour paper cut and glued together on cardboard to give it dimension. Then more cardboard was layered to make it pop off the blue painted backdrop. Then I photographed it outside in natural light and cleaned up the picture in photoshop and added some softening to the edges with the dodge tool to give it more of a dreamy quality to it.
