Today I have posted a character whose name is Sandy. Sandy doesn't have a last name as he is the "servant" of Widow Van Daal, who is a neighbor to James and Emmaline Hunter. And that's about all I am going to say about him at this point. I drew him holding a jar of honey (one of his favorite things and a gift from Emmaline), and, in the blue jacket, he is holding one of James' pigeons (who are all named for characters in the Odyssey ~ this one is probably Argos). And then to round it out, I have included a hat, necktie, and shoes/socks. Sandy is just about too old to be in short pants (he's about 14, though he looks younger ~ chalk that up to my poor drawing skills; children are still difficult for me).
Other notes on this doll: variations in skin tone on people of African descent has not proved very successful for me. I really mixed a very different color for Sandy than I used on Olivia, but they seem to look the same to me here. I will continue to try to improve in this area. Frankly, my white people skin tones aren't much better, so I probably shouldn't fret about it too much.
Anyway, enjoy! Click on the image to see more detail. I will put Sandy on the third plate, which I will probably post next weekend or thereabouts. More to come!
