Forgotten Doll No. 2 - 1 by wingdthing Forgotten Doll No. 2 - 1 by wingdthing
New sculpt for the week of July 15 2009. One of a kind polymer clay sculpture by Nicole West.

This is the second in the series of Forgotten Dolls. I've found that it is rather cathartic to take something perfect and pretty and then dirty it up. Highly recommended fun.

Well, I don't think I will be forgetting this doll anytime soon! The previous owner of the doll definently made a mistake by leaving her in the attic to get all dusty like this.

In a weird way, this doll's situation reminds me of Jessie from Toy Story 2, when she was talking about how much her owner loved her as a young child, but then it all faded away as she grew up. Then Jessie was left in a box in the middle of a road with the rest of the posters and objects that glorified her.

Those eyes look as though they have lost all hope of being recovered, except for one little glimmer of hope that she would be hugged tight again. It also hints that she was trudging along the attic floor for awhile, contemplating her abandonment, and finally flopped on her backside and started crying. Even more so, it seems that she was knocked backward from the force she exerted in trying to pick up her key from the floor.
All of your artwork is very inspiring, and I definently think that I will NEVER stop loving your sculptures! :tighthug:

Such wonderous and meticulous details deserve a thorough observation, my dear! Your work almost makes me want to start working with polymer clay, in hopes that I could ever match your talent someday! Sadly, all I do at the moment is draw....I am about to dab into photoshop, though! Alas, not much time is spared for my 16 year old self....

Thank you. Well I used to draw and paint but decided I liked the three dimensional world of clay more. Can't hurt to pick it up and play.
Oooo, you are brave taking on Photoshop. I plan to do that myself but haven't worked up the courage. ;)

I still think I need a slap in the face to get going... I've bought the books to learn, and I have the programs, I just need to crack open that book, install the CD full of lessons, and GO!

I remember the first time I officially made use of the Adobe Photoshop Program I had! It was Photoshop Elements 5.0! I had so much fun with all the brushes there were! I had been using them to make my history project! It turned out completely awesome, and I might even upload them, I am so proud! :meow: I definently worked hard since my history teacher gave me an extention on my deadline because she knew I am a hard worker, and I would come up with something amazing! (which I DID!)
At the moment, I am bracing myself against CS4...0_0 I flip through the books, and all of it is so familiar and something I feel I can accomplish!

Aww...how could anyone forget about her?? She so purty! :D
Im not sure which bit i like the mos...i always say "FACE!" and this is true here,but i also like the little ribbons in her hair,and the fact that if the key could release her from her prison,it looks too heavy for her to use...she needs some help...
"Aww" again... :)

I do try to look at all the efforts in what you do...its there to see,so i always have a good look :)
Me...right now,i just carried my mate home from a club lol he fell asleep and bouncers dont like that...but its what i do.
But in general terms,im ok,im still working on my entries mostly,hence lack of updates in my Gallery...one entry is pretty much done,which im pleased with,and all the sculpting i was gonna do is done too...so im sorta ready for the competition really,im on the painting aspect now,which i love so...no massive hardship!
How are you? If you want to do some more emailing,im game for that :)

Lol, have to admit I was not expecting that response! No bouncers don't like napping at the club. You know I got that email from you with your entries, and meant to comment when I had time. Then the email got buried. I'm so sorry for that! The first one was looking just amazing. I really liked what you did with it as far as the sculpting. I don't remember if she was finished or not. But she was looking fabulous. The dude was quite scary, in both stature and detail. I didn't envy you that paint job. How your not blind is amazing.
I wasn't in a chatty mood this past month, but I'm feeling more myself. So emails are welcome!

Haha,yea,he's bad for it lol he's the soul of the party and then hits 'the wall' and just falls asleep! We'e all well trained to deal with it though :P
I was going to mention the email,but i thought that i wouldnt bother you about it,i know its not quite your thing so i felt it better to not push it :) The Femme Militant is nearly painted,and now the "dude" is all finished build wise! I have some photos of him that i can email you if you like :) Im not painting him straight away,something i learnt last year with the sculpt i did was i was so eager to see it done,i rushed it a bit...it came out well,but not as i'd envisioned. But i found something else to paint for another category and he's coming out well,so im glad i followed the plan i had...
I could show you him too if you're of a mind :) Basically,im ramping up for the competition!
Glad you're feeling better :hug:,it'd be good to get chatting again :)

Curls, curls, curls! I love curly headed girls, they always look wild. She looks like she's been lost for quite some time now. I'd give her a home, if only i knew where to find her.

She looks so dead yet so lively! I love the pose and expression. It gives off a combination of hopelessness and pain while her eyes and face gives a feeling of reflection on that pain and maybe she hasn't given up yet

You got it! It is about being battered and worn. Feeling lonely and cast aside, but hope still dwells within. I know this is something we all have felt at some point in our lives.
