One of the least photographed dolls in my collection is Enoch. His white skin and the first cowl I made for him are incredibly difficult to photograph, at least for me. The dark brown fabric and white skin create such a contrast that my photography skills are not sufficient enough to capture the details of his face paint. I had planned to make a new habit for him for ages, a lighter one. And obviously postponed the plan for years.
But now I did it. And I spent hours on the embroidered Moonchild symbol on the chest. I am quite happy with the result. In addition to the color problem his face is not really photogenic, he can look tragic and mystical at certain angles and like a startled proteus when the angle isn’t right. I hope the olm-factor isn’t too obvious in this little gallery.
Monks and roses look nice together, don’t you think?
Enoch looks great in his new habit, and your embroidery is awesome, it’s very impressive work! I like Enoch’s face a lot, and in this photo series he certainly is photogenic. Great to see more of him!
Thank you! You didn’t see all the pictures where he does look like an olm 😀
I agree with Linda about your embroidery Mia, wonderful needle work. I’m not sure about Enoch, he looks a little scary to me. However, I think you’ve done a great job of the painting on his dome. 🙂
Thank you! He is supposed to be a bit scary – and sad.
Oh wow, he looks so amazing. I love his face up and the symbols on his head. The outfit is fantastic and really sets off his vibe so well. He seems like a very intriguing character. And I get you on meaning to sew things for your dolls – I’m the same. I’m only just learning how to sew fantasy style clothing for mine and it is slow going!
Thank you! I sew a lot for my dolls, but some things take ages. Especially boy clothes.
