Dora the explorer was the first commission I accepted “on a budget.” What this means is that the commissioner had a specific amount of money to spend on the doll. I accepted the commission for two reasons: 1.-It was for a little girl. 2.-I enjoy making dolls and I’m very thankful that people appreciate my work. Therefore, I accepted to make a doll within the limits of the amount of money the commissioner was offering. For this kind of commission what I offer is a simplify and non-detailed doll with no accessories. Dora’s backpack wasn’t included in the commission but I just couldn’t leave Dora without her backpack.
I surely could make dolls for free but I’m afraid that would affect my pocket.
Hopefully, the little girl would like the doll.
