The Forgotten Doll by EliaJasmine The Forgotten Doll by EliaJasmine
Hi there...please full view to see my hard work :P
So this is the first in what I hope to be a series of "Forgotten Dolls." I love dark art...always have. I am satisfied with this picture and hope to create more pretty, expressive...creepy dolls.

[Speaking to artists]: You know how, once in a while...when your working on a piece occasionally you have that feeling deep inside you that stirs emotion? It is a feeling like butterflies in your stomach; like you are nervous...but your's a feeling like you connected with your art and your meaning is expressed (to yourself, at least)? Well if that made any sense, that is what this picture did for me. Maybe I needed to get it out, maybe I am angry cause it's snowing...maybe I have taken wayyy too much sociology. Either way, perhaps you can read into the picture and find a meaning for yourself.

Forgive me if the small area of partial nudity offends you. I changed the setting off of mature to because it's trivial and to many of my non-subscribed watchers couldn't view the picture. So sorry if this was a double post in your deviation box due to the edit...

3D info:
Greek Ruins -DAZ
Idol Outfit -BAT??? I think so...
My girl Aiko3 :heart: -DAZ
Sylfie base with my morphs on top of her -DAZ
AprilSpirals hair - R'osity
Kirei texture -DAZ + my postworking for texture

2D info:
Adobe Photoshop 7
Wacom tablet

3D to postworking time ratio = 1:1
Actual picture twice the size of the DA fullview

I hope you like this...
Adrianne :heart:

Fantasic job on her! The eyes give the perfect "thousand yard stare" and dollishness. Please do make more dolls! I think renderosity has a cute ball jointed figure if you wanted to try and incorperate that into future works =)

I'm not good with pictures, but I do feel that way when I write my stories (which is how I create art!). It's that feeling you get when you're in the process and all of a sudden, you hit a nerve in your own mind, and as you keep going and feed off of it, you get more and more excited to the point to where it pains you to stop! At least that's how it is for me! Maybe the feeling works different for different forms of art...

Anyway, this is, I must say, a brilliant piece. It is rather dark, but in a good way. I don't mind the bit of nudity (I actually didn't notice until I looked for it after reading the description), and I consider that okay, since it's not the main part of what the picture is about. There are a few things in particular that I just love! First, you have a fabulous fashion sense! That dress is awesomeness times ten! Just saying!

But more to the point, one thing that I adored was the cracks under her eyes. I like them because it's kinda looks like she's crying, because she's so alone. It's really neat!

Anyway, great job! I loved it!

Heh. Sometimes I feel like that doll. But then I have a candy bar or something and it's all good.

Anyway, I love the dark and creepy side to this picture. Very nice.

oooh :heart: :heart: :heart: :heart:

I have something not unlike this in mind with robots, and was originally thinking of using my BJDs for it, though now using DAZ is much more likely.
Hallow-Quinn Featured By Owner Mar 3, 2007  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Seriously.. this is WAY good.
It reminds me of an enemy that you'd fight in Devil MAy Cry or something.. only.. better graphic-wise.
it's very good work!

liquid-snake Featured By Owner Dec 6, 2005
looks really great...

now i do not know if you know this but, there is a song in spanish by a 1950's children rhymes composer named Cricri (creecree) who sings a song of a forgotten doll, crying in the dark corner of the room...
A mouse finds her and tells her something like:
<the ugly doll>

Escondida por lo rincones,
<Hidding in a corner>
temerosa de que alguien la vea,
<fearing someone might see her>
platicaba con los ratones
<she spoke to the mice>
la pobre muñeca fea.
<the poor ugly doll>

Un bracito ya se le rompió,
<her little arm broke off>
su carita está llena de ollin
<her face is smeared with coal>
y al sentirse olvidada lloró
<and feeling herself forgotten, she cried>
lagrimitas de aserrín.
<little woodchip tears>

-Muñequita- le dijo el ratón-
<-little doll- said the mouse>
ya no llores, tontita, no tienes razón.
<stop crying, dont be silly, you are wrong>
Tus amigos nos son los del mundo,
<your friends are not the ones from this world>
porque te olvidaron es este rincón.
<because they forgot you in this corner>

Nosotros no somos así:
<We are not like that>

Te quieren la escoba
<The broom loves you>
y el recogedor,
<and the dust-shovel too>
te quiere el plumero
<the duster loves you>
y sacudidor
<and the dust sweeper too>
Te quieren la araña
<The spider loves you>
y el viejo velís,
<and the old briefcase too>
también yo te quiero

y te quiero feliz.
<and i love you to be happy>

This maybe doesn´t apply, but it triggered me to think about that childhood memory... so i love this piece.

Thanks and keep up the good work
