Today while making a doll face in Embird Studio from an image that my daughter drew for me I used a command that may come in handy for you sometime.
I was creating the following face for a doll that my daughter wants to make for her baby girl who is due in February 2011.
I created the lips using the Column Tool. It was really easy to get the top lip and bottom lip created as one object.
Using the Column Tool, Edge Mode B, I selected the Sample Number 9 – the one with the stitch points running through the middle of the column stitch.
I just created the column in the normal manner and the division for the top and botom lip formed when I generated the stitches.
Lastly I used the Auto Outline feature to add an outline around the lips.
So that’s something for you to consider when you are creating mouths – or any column shape that needs a division in it. Check out the Sample patterns in the drop down box first to see if any of them suit the project that you are digitising.
