Baby!!!

Baby is a Playskool My Very Soft Baby doll. I am not so sure what year he is from since it seems that he was the baby of the year for 1993, 1995, and 1998, but I would assume he is from 1998 since that would be much closer to Babysister who is from 1999. Baby is the middle child! I have had him ever since I was born in 2000 so that's why he looks like that. I do not remember how his face got broken or where any of these holes came from. I assume some of the holes are just wear from being washed since I'm sure I got him dirty often from carrying him around with me everywhere. His face could have also cracked from being washed in the washing machine or tumbling around in the dryer. The heat does soften the plastic a lot. He also could have gotten his cracks from me being reckless or one of my brothers did that to him. I'm not so sure, there are so many possibilities. One thing that I do remember is a time when he still had stuffing in his body. There were holes in his feet and I put socks on him so none of the stuffing would come out. I don't remember when I stopped doing that and how all of his stuffing was removed, though. I also remember him having his squeaker, but it was broken. I kept it in his body like where it's intended to be and then moved it to his head and eventually took it out because it was annoyingly hard and I think I just wanted to his head to be soft because sometimes I like to lay my head upon his face. That's another thing that could have caused his face to crack. I also chewed on his face a ton as a kid. I still kind of do, but I try not to.

Basic Facts

Baby is my little baby boy. I think Baby has been a boy the entire time I've had him, but I'm not so sure. I don't ever remember him being a girl despite everyone around me acting like he is one just because he wears pink. I can't think back that far, but I know I have had to correct people often that Baby is in fact a boy. It's really annoying that I have to do that. People are just so mean to Baby and I don't know why. I think that really foreshadowed my future realization that I am a man. So, this is why Baby is transgender. He is just like me, but is a baby and more extroverted.

Here are some facts about Baby. Baby loves to play with his siblings and his friends. It's probably what Baby does most. He has so many friends! He has a best friend named Euphoria who is a little brown bear. All they do when they're together is hug each other and say that they love each other. Baby also has a boyfriend named Jojo who is a little clown baby. Baby is really into the scene aesthetic and anything that would be considered kidcore. He doesn't listen to any scene bands so he's kind of a poser, but he doesn't care. Baby is a very talkative little guy. He loves talking to his friends and siblings about stupid things. Some of his repeated phrases are, "Baby," "pee pee poo poo," "poopies," and other things that are similar to that. Baby is into biting things and slapping things. He will bite everyone and everything and he will put anything in his head. Baby mainly slaps me and he also likes to smack his face against stuff. Another thing that he likes to do is sing especially whenever we listen to the Aquabats! and when we decided to watch Homestar Runner Puppet Jams. Baby also loves to draw. He is quite a great artist and he enjoys drawing his favorite characters and doing self portraits. Baby has a little Tumblr blog if you want to check that out. Some of his art is on there.

Here is a list of some bands that Baby really likes:

  • The Aquabats!

Design

Now we have gotten to the part where I talk about why I draw Baby the way that I do. I think most of it is quite obvious since Baby is already a human so it was easy to draw an older human version of him. His hair is green and straight because that is how it is painted on him. I always wondered why they decided to give this baby green hair since that is not a natural hair color, but whatever! I think it looks cool. Baby's eyes are the same color that they are painted on him. His left eye is lighter than his right eye because he is blind in that eye. The paint is coming off on that eye on the real him so I wanted to translate that into his design somehow and this is what I could come up with. His skin color was kept the same and I gave him scars on his face. The scars are to represent the cracks on his face. I did not want to ignore those so that was the best thing I could think of. I draw Baby being the shortest out of the three since I imagine him looking the most like me. He would be around five feet tall when an adult. I also made Baby left handed because of the stuffing in his left arm. I'm not so sure how to describe this, but the stuffing in the hand and the stuffing in the arm are separated and are just their own clumps that I can pinch in between them and easily flap his hand around by sliding my fingers up and down against the fabric of his arm. It's kind of difficult to explain, I hope you understand what I'm trying to convey. I think that's all for Baby's design.


First Rendition - May 2018

This is not the first drawing I had done of Baby, but it is the first drawing where Baby has his scars. I'm not so sure why it took me so long to actually give him those scars since I wanted him to have them in the first place. It was one of the first ideas I came up with, but I guess I was unsure of how I wanted to do them so I never drew them on his face. There are some parts of this iteration that I don't like. One thing I don't like is his nose. There's too much of a ski slope and he needs a dorsal hump like the one on my nose. I just need him to look a bit more like me. His unibrow is absent in this drawing, but it will appear later on.


Second Rendition - June 2018

This is one of the many drawings of Baby that are in this piece. He's touching the knife that Babysister is showing him. This is more of what Baby would look like when he's ten years old. One thing I want to touch on is his short hair. I kind of don't like him with short hair. I would think that sometimes he'd randomly shave his head whenever he's tired of dealing with long hair, but I don't do how often he'd do that.


Third Rendition - July 2018

Here's Baby with Jojo! I tried to do a somewhat emo Baby here. I like his dyed black hair with his green roots showing through. I think that looks very cool. It's kind of a Billie Eilish thing although I think I drew this before she got popular. I think Baby is trying to be more like Gerard Way when he had his teal roots. That was his best hairstyle. I should draw more emo Baby.


Fourth Rendition - September 2018

This was not drawn by me! This was drawn by my best friend Leopold. Please check out his tumblr art blog because his art is very good! This is a drawing of Baby with his best friend Euphoria. They're both dressed as really cool emo kids. I really like how Leopold draws Baby. His eyebrows are there, but from afar you might not notice them being there. I think that was a really good idea since Baby's real eyebrows are fading away. I don't draw Baby with missing eyebrows at all, but I'm sure at one point in time he would have shaved them off.


Fifth Rendition - March 2019

I do not think there are any drawings of Baby that I posted between this one and the one of him with Jojo. That sure is a long time without Baby. Baby got his long hair back, but it's just his natural color here. I really like Baby's outfit. I think it would make sense for Baby to wear colorful clothes that don't match although his outfit here looks not that bad. I think he needs more colorful clothes with clashing patterns that will hurt your eyes and a lot more accessories. I think he'd be into decora. I had the idea that since Baby likes to slap things he'd be into playing the drums so that's why he has a large bass drum with him.
