Pop Manga: Creating Characters for Mixed Media and Peg Dolls

Oh… 💙

I’m always looking for resources to help me create faces and build characters.

I believe I may have found something that speaks to my style.

You may love it too.

Pop Manga, by Camilla D’errico, showcases her popular Manga style and outlines how she approaches her art.

You could find an out of the box type character for yourself or be inspired to create a character with a story all to itself.

Everything in me tingles!

Take a look at it too.

You could find something special for your next drawing, painting or peg doll.

Have you tried to draw Manga?

Do you enjoy Pop Art?

My mind is whirling,
my imagination is in overdrive
and I’m excited to get creating!

Tell me what you think of Pop Manga.

Getting her start with a few light base coats and some sketching.

Can you guess what she’ll be? Maybe she’s saying she’s a fairy?

Here’s a little bit of face 😁

With some color she starts to come to life.

Large Peg Doll Assembly

Look at the Giant Extra Large Peg Dolls, all made from a mix of non doll parts creatively put together.

From a box of parts that were a mix of this or that, out came this. The largest is over 8 inches!

Who would have guessed some of these could have even been put together?!

It was fun to mix it up and find these new creations!

Sometimes you can find more than first appears with a little creativity.

Can you see what they are going to be?

What kinds of creations would you paint on these Peg Dolls?
