I just joined yesterday 9/2/13. I don't have anything too show yet. It's been ages since I was very productive (about 4 decades). I may be a little shy but I'll put it on line when it's ready. I also have done ceramics and beading.

I'm a very slow doll-maker :p
hope you are willing to wait!
love to see your creations too Victorian BJD inspired faces artworks too :)

HeHe... I like the BJD dolls too (creepy yet eloquent at the same time) ... want to do an actual BJD doll one day.
Saw a good movie (horror movie) with these dolls, "Doll Master" and they are incredible... the workmanship is so neat and fantastic ...
Hmm... your idea is great to draw a bit like their faces - there are a couple of artists out there who delve in this style :)
Victorian Dresses ... WoW. Try to find an online fashion museum... some "modern" design elements in fabric/texture/proportions had featured some Victorian trends too ;)
Have you tried washes of Acrylic? One part paint and keep on adding water until the paint is almost translucent (try the experiment on scrap paper first to see the result). There is also a thinning medium that can be added to the Acrylic :)
