The Scar From My Past.

The only 1/6 scale head I ever painted that ended in complete failure was the NDR #4. I had gone out of my way to get one and rooted it myself only to find it too little and weird to paint. It turned out that the head I was looking for was actually the #5, which is much bigger. Proportion-wise, they look similar, but the #4 in tiny. I think the #5 might be the head Takara used for Raph, but I'm not sure.


Anyway, even though I'm not due to paint another doll for a while, in the spirit of the season I decided to give this maligned head another try:



Depending on how I feel about him over the next couple of days, this doll's name might be Noah. ^____^;...He has a big forehead! I still don't know what to think of him. Maybe I'm not used to painting realistic head molds, maybe I did a crappy job on him, I dunno. ^^;...He looks weird to me, but then again now that I've painted him all my other dolls are starting to look weird to me as well.

He looks fine to me! In fact, he's pretty hot! ^-^;;

Thank you *^__^*. His head is so different from everything else I've painted but I told myself that after four years of using the same two head molds I should be ashamed of myself for giving up on this one.

Oh I really like it! Those heads are HARD to paint but you did it justice. And Noah would be a good name.

Thank you! I'm just glad I rooted Noah for bangs because his forehead is HUGE! Maybe in a week or two I'll be used to him. His lips were fun to paint but still...I hope that the #5 will be easier to work with. ^_^

Don't worry about not knowing about dolls, though, it's not a requirement! ^o^
