Got a couple of things to show you for this post, a new doll AND a new illustration :) wahoo!
First, I would like to announce that due to unforeseeable circumstances, the Tank Girl stitch-punk doll is back on the market for purchase. Please contact me if you are interested, and I will answer any questions you may have! Here is a photo of her:
I mentioned on the last blog that I was making a doll inspired by the Moogles of Final Fantasy (FFIX in my case). Well here are some images of Mog (he literally sold within 5minutes of me putting him on Facebook, so if you haven't done so already, please give my Nicolpops Facebook Page a "Like" and a follow, so you can be first to see any new dolls or art I make, as my blog posts here are not as frequent).
I sold him to a fellow Moogle enthusiast, so I am super happy he has gone to a good home! You can read his review/testimonial here.
I have a couple of custom orders in the making, which I am super excited about, however, as they are a surprise I can not post them here yet! But trust me, they are so frigging cool, and it will be worth the wait to see them ;)
As some of you may know, I am a MASSIVE fan of American McGee's "Alice : Madness Returns" game, and I have no idea why I have waited this long to even think of making an Alice doll inspired from it! To start off on my Alice project, I have made an illustration of her in my own style, which will form the basis for the design of the doll... I may make a doll of the Cheshire Cat too! So here is my illustration, which was first hand drawn then scanned into Sketchbook Pro for colouring, then finally Photoshop to add in finishing touches. American McGee himself "liked" my illustration on Instagram and commented that he loved it, so obviously I had a total *fan girl'* moment!
I will hopefully get the doll finished next week while I am on holiday from work, if the fabric I need arrives on time!
Various ponderings by me; Nicola Brand: creator of the Nicolpops stitch-punk doll. I dabble with illustration, but my main passion is for knitting, and using mixed media to create one of a kind critters.
