Through the Ages - Round 3 by zapatones Through the Ages - Round 3 by zapatones
Finally, round three for TTA. I got it done on Sunday but I wanted to check everything was ok with my entry before getting it here.

So here's Isabella right before going to bed. When I found out about the pageant and saw that round three was bedtime this idea popped in my head and I knew I wanted to enter just to make it real. So, yes, I sort of improvised my entries for the previous rounds and struggled to make them work but this one round was a bliss.

She's praying before going to bed. She's supposed to be kneeling on a prie-dieu similar to this [link] The image there is a very sketchy version of the Madonna of the Catholic Monarchs by Fernando Gallego [link]

I tried to go for a much more dramatic lightsourcing and I think this is an evolution from my previous experiment [link] (in case you had forgotten about her)

I love working with light effects. It's amazing what you can get with just a few shadows and highlights, everything becomes much more interesting.

Yeah, that feels great. Looking back and feeling proud of what you've achieved and just thinking about what you'll be able to do in the future is just ... I can't find words to describe it so :squee: that will do.

Thanks a lot. I checked my previous experiment as a guide and when I saw your comment back then it made me smile. I remember I felt so proud to get such a beautiful comment on that doll that it became a personal favourite. Now this one has sort of replaced it, but how much love that one got back then meant a lot to me. I don't know why but I had the feeling you would say something about this doll. I just knew it.

Seriously . . . unlike anything I've ever seen in the dolling world. And I love that. Keep pushing those creative (and beauty!) boundaries!

I prefer this style rather than the more colourful dolls (I'm talking about doing it myself) so I just wanted to go for it and make it as dramatic as possible. My last two dolls have been all about pushing boundaries, but maybe it would be safer to do that when doing more personal work than contest entries. Although I do take contest entries quite personally.
