So I know I did one of these dolls before but I thought it would be nice to remake another in a different and easier form. Today I will start the day by showing you "how to draw a voodoo doll", step by step. Voodoo dolls are as you know vessels for folks who practice witchcraft to inflict pain, spells, and other remedies to other people without even touching them or saying one word. I didn't want my interpretation of a voodoo doll to look creepy so I went ahead and made it look more like a stuffed toy than anything else. I think that once you begin tackling this lesson, your own personal touches will come out and something will be created thats all your own. Anyways, have fun with drawing voodoo dolls with this tut. I will be back later today with some fresh lessons to keep you all entertained. Peace out and enjoy.
