Raven and the Crow: Finished!

Post  LMPartdolls on 20/10/2009, 20:53

Finally, I was able to finish this piece after a lot of hassles. I thought I was gonna pull my hair out more than one occassion. But, I'm pleased with the final piece.

At any rate, this is more than anything an emotional piece of art with hints of symbolism. The title of the sculpt is "Raven and the Crow". As you will see in her pictures, she has a tear rolling down her cheek as she leans forward to pet and comfort the crow. The symbolism behind the piece is that crows herald death and grave yards, they are indeed the messengers of ill fortunes. The dark fairy, Raven, is mourning the loss that the messenger brings. The Crow, he does not like his job, but it is his to tell nonetheless, and so, he carries on, in his sad state of affairs. Thus, the Raven, she comforts him and lets him know that she too, understands what it is that he must do, and listens to the message that he brings. And, this is the story behind The Raven and the Crow.
In the spirit of halloween, I hope you like her!









Sorry for all the pics, I couldn't decide which one I liked the best. lol I hope you enjoyed them anyway!

Hugs,
Lori

Thanks again, Sue. I worked really hard on her, had some issues here and there, but, she came out better than I had expected her to in the end. I'm very glad you like her and her story.

Hugs,
Lori

The rooster tail feathers are perfect. Just the right amount of fullness. See, great things happen if you just stick with it! Huggs

You got that right, Paula! I was pleased when I seen the final results. It was worth the 2nd go round on the wings. I admit...if those feathers didn't work, I was gonna go bald over this doll. The feathers wound up being exactly what I had wanted in the beginning. Sometimes, having to settle for the next best thing just isn't the best thing after all. I'm glad I was persistant with the project.

Hugs,
Lori
