Now that I finally have some time and some growth in my photoshop skills I have been revising old paper dolls to fix things like composition. So these are some new versions that are now in my shop! And I hope to keep doing this until I feel that they all look stronger.
The Madam Ribette -- A Frog in the French Court doll was formerly 2 pages which I felt it didn't need to be. And the "Farewell" doll pieces were made larger so there was less empty space. yup!

This is my Edgar Allen Poe's "The Raven" paper doll play set
All of the enigmatic symbols are present! We have our narrator, E.A.P himself in a robe, striped pajama pants, and bunny slippers (!) He also comes with a grandfather clock (pointed to ) and chair you can fold to stand. In the room is the portrait of the lost Lenore as well as the bust of Pallas with the ominous raven upon it, sitting atop the fire place. There is also wallpaper of my own design lining the walls with hidden flies! I think the influence of one of my favorite illustrators Edward Gorey is very evident!
and this is the second page with the background to stand up. See I used that wall paper pattern I made up, yay!
and some photos :)
I realize that because this is all black and white and pattern-y it will blend in very well with the design of my blog! this was uber fun to work on I hope it sells!

I reeeally don't like how my profile looks so I decided to draw it to see if I could conquer/come to terms with it. The answer is not really, but my hair looks art nouveau which is nice.
also, I can see a vase in the negative space between the faces.
