Cute or Creepy?


Just wondering if I crossed the fine line between cute and creepy. Japanese design tends to walk that tightrope often... Well? Thoughts?

I don't think it's creepy...

It won't be creepy if you color in the pupils.

For me it borders on creepy because the proportions are more adult, but the costume is childlike. A big part of cute is baby proportions, big eyes, big head. My first impression was that it looked a bit like an old lady. Ha ha how's that for honesty? I'm going back to my morning martini now.

I think it's cute, but closer inspection of the mouth seems to reveal little pointy teeth. Kids with little purses creep me out too.

Very creep. Exaggerate that head and those eyes. C'mon Liz you gotta push it more! More I say. Go drink a bottle of Italian Chianti if you have to!

Thanks for all the suggestions. This is my attempt at redesigning a doll for a toy company I'm working for. It's based on another doll that I've been referencing. The dilemma is that I can't make it look too cartoony... it has to look cute, but realistic, which is kind of hard when it comes to dolls... And especially hard in estimating how much to push proportions. I hope I can implement all your suggestions... I just have to see how far I'm allowed to push it but still please the "boss"... :)

um...maybe ... just make her eyes futher apart... (if you don't want to change the design to much) It will look more cute like hello kitty! I like her hair cut and dress...
