Jacob Marley? by Swaggertoes Jacob Marley? by Swaggertoes
Ok, here's my quickie art doll dude.

See, I had this idea in my head...this wasn't it...sorta, but not quite. Originally most of the body was going to be covered in robes and bits of tattered white lace etc etc....but when I started making his underclothes...I liked them so much, I decided just to finish it off as if the underclothes were the whole outfit.

So, I donno if I'll change it or not.

I just love white creamy ghosty tatteredy things. Maybe next time I'll actually do what I planned? Maybe not. Who knows.

Would be funny to get some fake little plastic chain...then he could be Jacob Marley. haha.

Jacob Marley? is a really fabulous soft bodied sculpture. It's just an incredible piece with fine detail and it truly shows how talented ~Swaggertoes is. Check out the rest of her gallery for more gorgeous works in multiple media. ( Suggested by talis13 and Featured by Myana )

Congrats on a very well-deserved DD! I had no idea you also created sculptures. His expression is wonderful. I particularly enjoy the shape and position of his hands. :heart:

Wasb't Jacob Marely the 'zombie' with his mouth sewed shut in Hocus Pocus?

If so, it's a wonderful, if accidental, rendition of him. :)

HOrray for the 4 toes! Oddly enough, I gave him 5 fingers. See, originally you weren't going to see the feet at all. lol.

Could you doll character be moved? Can he move his joints? I wonder if he can be used for a stop-motion movie.

:iconswaggertoes:
Swaggertoes Featured By Owner Apr 2, 2008  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
It doesn't have joints per se, but the body is soft around an armature wire. He doesn't stand up too well in any position, because he has to be balanced.

I'd love to make something with joints that could be used for animation. That would rock.

You could make chain using white coated craft wire. It's not hard to work with. If you don't know how to make chain with wire, PM me. I can give you a short tutorial.

I think you did a fantastic job!!!! I find that the sculpts often tell me how they really want to be after I begin them, despite whatever original concept I had in mind. This is really terrific! You can use small chains from an old necklace maybe or get some from some cheapy jewelry at a store? That would be a nice finishing touch!

Swaggertoes Featured By Owner Mar 27, 2008  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
I think those might be a tad small. He stands over a foot...like 13 inches or so. So it'd have to be a pretty big chain...though I've seen them out there like that.
