Five New Heads!

Yesterday was all about new heads. I worked on these five lovelies from before noon until nearly 6pm. Which was perfect timing, because I then had to get dressed (I had, um, worked in my pajamas all day), because we had been invited to a special screening of a forthcoming movie. And the score for that movie, done by a friend of ours, was great! And um, yeah. We really liked the part our friend did.

But these heads! I'm pleased with them. They already have perspective identities in my mind. There's prospector head, and swimming girl head, fancy pants girl with her beehive (which was originally going to be more Marge Simpson curly, but didn't end up as such), and the shy girl who's maybe a little chubby, and her weird, goofy brother. I think about them a little too much; it maybe isn't healthy. I have a hard time parting with them by the time they're completely done. I've spent so much time with them, and assigned them personalities. It's something I need to work on.

We're still waiting to hear about the dream apartment. One couple turned it down, and there's still one couple ahead of us. But they haven't communicated with the people at the building in awhile, so we have a good chance. I'm really hoping. I think we'll know today though, one way or another.

good luck on the apartment! we just sat through a painful wait of our own for an almost-"perfect" place ourselves . . . keep us posted!

Thanks! Swimming girl will probably be the first of this set done, since she'll be relatively simple. Then I can make a bunch of stuff to go with her, like a little towel.

I should find out today about the place. Basically, if the people ahead of us in line didn't suddenly decide to call and take it after ignoring the people for a week, it's ours.

cute heads! :) I like the girl in the middle. Her upturn nose is awesome.
