Helloooooo! *echoes*

I disappeared. Sorry about that. I just had to take a break from the comic to do other stuff - such as finally make that birthday present for my friend who had his birthday in April, and work on a dollie that was still faceless and one that was still naked. And I felt like doing some knitting. Also I reread Jonathan Strange & Mr Norrell, because I saw the DVD was out and I wanted to reread the book before watching the television series.

Since I will be going back to art school next week, and if my teacher sticks to his conclusion of a few months ago, that will mean I will have to produce an old AND a new page every week, I thought I had to take some time for the other stuff while I still could.

Naked Dollie is still unfinished (I'm working without a pattern! it's terrifying! I need to take breaks to gather my courage!), but Faceless Dollie has a face now. Meet Reinette. She has nothing whatsoever to do with Gawain and co. But I adore her anyway.

Under the cut is the Really Belated Birthday Present. Noutie, should you happen to stumble across this page and not want to be spoiled, then please do not peek below the cut :p.

So if all goes well, I should be back with new pages in September. I. e. next week. Better get cracking...

This, by the way, is Amhar.


Time well spent, no?

Today is Oscar Wilde's birthday!

And guess what: today, a film based on Wilde's fairytale The Selfish Giant wins the Ghent Film Fest.

Also on Wilde's birthday, for the doll fans among us: the pre-orders for these brand-new Irish Fairy BJDs starts.

Magic Mirror presents...

That can't be a coincidence. Oscar's star is shining bright! ;)

I try not to post too much about my dollies, because most of you aren't here to read about dolls. But the dolls are related to the Gawain Project, at least when I find the time to style them appropriately and manage to resist putting them in Victorian(ish) costumes. And I succeeded with Lovell, Gawain's youngest son, so obviously I am proud and want to share him ;).

Well, here he is...

Lovell, the Little Wolf

One more... )
I painted his face and made his clothes (tunic and breeches are based on antique patterns) and accessories. Now for a matching set for his twin sister, Clarissant... ;)

I rarely post pictures of my dolls anymore because I know 99.9% of you really don't care for/about them, though I may bother you with them some more as their medieval look starts coming together...

We haven't reached that stage yet (far from it!), but occasionally I experience the perverse need to show you the depth of my doll-depravity. Read: reveal the size my crew has taken on in as little as ... two years and two months.

Her body arrived last week, so here she is now :). She needs some bracelets and I'm also planning an undertunic for her, but this will do for the time being.


Kundry's head has arrived as well. The family is nearing completion :D...

I'm, er, beginning to understand why chainmail used to cost an arm and a leg (and still does cost an arm and a leg, for those among us who are into chainmail-wearing cosplay). It's such a pain to make! D:

The things I do to make my Gawain look more authentic... :p Because, yes, it's a pain to make, but it's going to look very nice! I love the two square centimeters of chainmail that I have produced so far. *grins*

Yes, yes, I know you much prefer drawings to dolls, but I had to share Morgana with you because I thought I would never be able to finish her to my satisfaction - but yesterday I did! Yippee!

There's more behind the cut, if you like... My only regret is that I don't have an alternative head with an impish smile.

...What can I say, I'm Irish by sympathy ;).

*sigh of relief*

Gawain has clothes. He doesn't have to go to the doll meeting naked. That leaves Morgana (still nothing) and Gwalchmei (who turns out to be a spoilt little boy, because he already *has* clothes, and this isn't a cold winter so his outfit can serve perfectly well). They have to wait, because I have an exam website to build presto...

Complaining dollies interrupt my drawing session. But they'll have to wait till I'm done. *pets them*

Well... He's complete! Now for some clothes.

It's Gawain! )

Dead Leaves

Whoops, I've been quiet... I'm working on commissions (proposals to be scanned & sent) + fest entries (Top Secret) and not on the comic so much (though some progress has been made with the script, yay!), and I'm also trying to fashion a dress for Morgana. The latter enterprise is arguably the least successful of the lot :( - for a n00b seamstress like myself, making a dress for a lady with resin boobs (of considerable size) is not a walk in the park. Dear me! So for the time being, she's mostly wearing yards of fabric with pins in it :/.

Autumn is really setting in now. We have lots of dead leaves in our small garden. They made me think of Morgana and her 'touch of death' (which you'll see in action soon). I took a few pictures of her with dead nature.


I know I'm a bit doll-obsessed these days, but it's just so much fun to have your characters sitting around in mini versions and to be able to create a 'real' look for them XD.

Little Gawain isn't alone anymore. Morgana has arrived!


Morgana is a Dollzone Aurora; I have bought her completely blank and painted her face myself. More pictures below... I need to make clothes for her (at my leisure), which is going to be a leeettle challenging because I haven't got any patterns :P.
