It's funny how a primate monkey choose to wear shoes while the now-busty and sexy dora choose to be barefoot, walking on the harsh and dirty ground of the forest, with muds, dirts, dried twigs, and leaves constantly made her sexy soles become black and unclean.
i thought i'd make her part of the growing group of wild cats out there that prefer to be barefoot. i'm also a fan of the the Discovery Channel show called Dual Survival. Cody Lundin, a minimalist survival expert who goes barefoot in the wilderness inspired this idea since Dora's an explorer.
i, myself go barefoot almost 24/7 when allowed. it's kinda my trademark anymore to remove my illustrated character's footwear for a more relaxed look. thanks for asking!
thank you, i really appreciate that. i definitely wanted to make her older, the animals a bit less cartoony and... she's a wild explorer, Cody Lundin-style. i have a friend urging me to do a version of Ni Hao Kai Lan, but i've been leaning towards Strawberry Shortcake.
yeah, she's older here in my rendition for sure. this has been a staple show in my household, with both my toddlers. this is sorta me coping with having to watch the show... or hear the show from another room. haha
