I tweaked the positioning by maybe a millimeter, perhaps less, and I think it looks somewhat better now. I'm hoping the repositioned eyes will prove less problematic for lighting.

OH, well then.
That does look much more realistic & natural.

Apparently I did not post a photo of the Smart Doll scale sofa I've been trying to build in this thread. I think I posted it in my Doll a Day topic. Anyway, here it is:

When I was putting this together out of foamcore board, cardboard, and hot-melt glue, I actually constructed two sofa frames simultaneously, so I'd have a back-up in case I messed up the first one. Somewhat surprisingly, I managed to finish the first one without goofing it up too badly, so a few days ago I decided to finish the second sofa. It turned out mostly okay as well.

But then it occurred to me: Duh! Rather than making another sofa, I should have cut the second one in half and turned it in to an armchair. Or maybe two armchairs. Rather than disassembling the second sofa, I went ahead and modified the design and built an armchair from the materials I had left over.

So here ya go, two Smart Doll scale sofas and an armchair:

Yeah, I know, the stripes on the cushions don't match up on the second sofa, but other than that it's not too bad.

The issue now is space! These things are huge! Setting them on the stairs was the only indoor space I could find to photograph them. I'm not sure where I'm going to store them or how to set up a room box large enough in which to photograph them.

And why do I need three Smart Doll chairs if I only have two Smart Dolls? Hmmm....
They're not dolls, they're action figures!

New sofa and armchair both look great! Maybe you should build a room box for yourself outside and leave your house to your dolls, so that they have enough space for their stuff? LOL

And yay for a new Smart Doll on the way (because that's going to happen either way)!

They all look great! Storage of doll accessories is a problem. And I have no great answers.

Now that's planning ahead -- making a second one simultaneously in case you mess up the first!!
They all look super! Great job! Well, they do need more than one piece of furniture in their house... and unless someone's going to sleep on a sofa, now they'll need beds... LOL
Lack of space is why I don't even want to get into 1/6 scale accessories, let alone bigger.
