IF - Forgotten




Forgotten...I haven't posted an IF in so long! I have been busy with illustration projects and things..and I really got into sewing - so I was posting stuff on my other blog...So I am in fear of being forgotten..but I hope not.

ALSO - to me one of the forgotten arts that I used to adore was making Dolls. This one in particular "Little Red" was made for the Living Dead Dolls Art Show a couple years ago (ldd show)..and she sits forgotten on my office floor (she deserves so much better), in need of me fixing her up (having been damaged in travel) and then she needs to become a great fixture in my house.

She is a blank doll, that I sewed the clothes for and sculpted the hair, then painted her..Painted a shadow box and glued in the trees and moss, sculpted the basket and glued that in. Placed her in and created my 3d illustration! I had always hoped to do more of these beauties..but it was VERY time consuming, one day, perhaps.

Sorry ive been away!
Thank you for all your comments!!

That's amazing, Nicole, what a haunting doll... Incredible details, the hair, her scared expression, the background you created, I can see it must be really time consuming -- but it's a work of art!

Holy cow! This is absolutely amazing! I can see how much time and effort you put into this beauty. Even the branches are eerily curled!

cute doll! I love those living dead dolls. There was a girl when I was in art school who did some freelance for them.
Love your ATC's below too!
