Working on an Art Doll

We're having our annual art doll swap at the Paperartistsonline (PAO) forum. I've really wanted to try my hand at making a whimsical type doll. The problem, is that I can't draw. Well, Santa brought me some great sketching pencils and a pack of artist quality erasers in my stocking this year, so I thought I would give it a try. The sketch was made on heavy davy board and will be colored with Prismacolor pencils. She is about 12" tall.
I'm seriously thinking of taking an online class to learn to sketch faces. Have any of you done this? Do you have any feedback? Stay tuned, we'll see how she turns out. This is for fun, right?

Try Willowing, Art Heart and Healing. The first lesson gives great guidelines to start you off on faces Julie. This is a free course and am sure you will have fun as well.
Enjoy the weekend, Annette x
