This week's topic is "Spooky" suggested by BiggeBP (http://www.biggebp.blogspot.com/).
". . . the moon gazed on my midnight labours, while, with unrelaxed and breathless eagerness, I pursued nature to her hiding-places." ~ Mary Shelley
Initial sketch and watercolour
Ooooo…..what makes you feel all spooky? Me, it’s dolls and clockwork, creepy. I never liked dolls, when I was little teddy’s were my thing, and as for things that move on their own…ahhhhhh!
I actually quite like the plainness of the pen and watercolour version before the digital additions but I think I should have done the hair with just pen and I wish I had continued the ‘stitching’ around her face.
Tick-tock, tick-tock, eeek I’m creeping myself out here.
It’s funny but I don’t like drawing scary, creepy type things. It kind of frightens me to dredge up something twisted from my own mind I prefer my insecurities and fears to remain firmly repressed in my subconscious thank-you. But for the sake of IF I guess I can venture to the dark edge and have a quick peek before slamming the door shut and running screaming back into the light.
So here she is in all her evil dolliness, wa ha ha!
