Of course, as you can see I’ve continued with the manga features in order to make her look cute though I couldn’t avoid making her eyes look sad. Due to this I decide to add something broken in the picture. At the beginning I was inclined to add a stuff animal like a teddy bear, but I remembered the Raggedy Ann doll from when I was a child. It has been a long time since I’ve seen children with stuff dolls. Lately the majority of the dolls I see are made of plastic. For the Raggedy Ann doll a used the following reference and made a simplified version.
The girl has taken me a bit more time because I usually draw them with straight hair, which is easy, but I wanted to try something more difficult; in this case curly hair. I used the following reference for the hair and ended up only drawing one side in order to leave space for the doll.
I tried to find clothing that resembled the decade of twenties in which the books of Raggedy Ann apparently came out but found it a bit complicated to obtain a reference in which they were wearing daily clothes. The majority I found were for going out. So, I kinda of made a mixture for the blouse and colored it to match the eyes.
