Deliah of the Forest



Meet Deliah of the Forest. This piece was made for the ADO

team MMC or mini monthly challenge. The theme was Mixed Up, the challenge being to create a piece of mixed up characters. My first instinct was "well this is easy, I'll just make a bunny girl or a slug boy"...but wait these MMC's are supposed to challenge you Colleen. So I got out my big book of mammals and just opened it up to a page determined to use whatever creature I opened the page to. Well it was the deer section, thank goodness it wasn't the hippo section:) I would have needed much more clay.




This was so much fun to make, her little face came surprisingly easy to me, though I guess a lot of my dolls do have doe-like eyes.

She is wonderful Colleen. I like reading how you came up with her too!

You really did an incredible job at incorporating deer like features on her face.

She is very sweet. Does she have little doe feet too?

Zan Asha said...

Just amazing, Colleen! I am also wondering what is under that dress (I mean the doe hoofs, of course!) :D

Thanks ya'll. No doe feet..though I did make them (not as easy as you'de think) I ended up sticking her onto a candlestick. I wanted her to be tall and majestic and I think it worked. Now I have a couple of hooved doe feet hanging around I'm not sure I know what to do with:)
