Cortessa by Галина

The plot is that:

When in 1519 conquistador Fernando Cortés Monroy Pizarro Altamirano has landed at coast of Mexico,

his purpose were far from the peace: the treasury in Spain has been devastated and needed replenishment by gold at any cost...

The tribes occupying future America also weren't peaceable and defenceless, they were torn apart by intertribal wars. And despite sufficient cultural development, they piously respected traditions and also a legend about White God who will come from a rising sun.

All it has ended with a gain conquistadors of Mexico and destruction of statehood of Aztecs, the strongest tribe of all new lands.

As to my history: polygamy in territory of future America was traditional, and also promoted economy and a cultural exchange. Women were important and dear element of management. The arrived Spaniards-conquistadors also have joined in this process.

Cortes, for example, had set of novels and many American Indian concubines in Mexico. And accordingly and children.

Having killed Montesumu II, he has taken care of its descendants, having constructed the Lock and having adopted its hereditary daughter. Certainly in it there was also a benefit for Cortes.

The image "Сortessа" is the image of a civilization of the Aztecs, subordinated and militarized by conquistadors, the woman without whom all could will finish shameful death or bloody slaughter for both parties.

Technical part/ Техническая часть:

My art abilities aren't too developed yet, therefore to realize in drawing it has not turned out in all parts, I wanted. I'm very sorry.

As additional to the idea image I offer experiment with a stend.
Idea: to clean a stend for a doll, having replaced with its following fastenings:
Additional boottree on footwear as in the Middle Ages used in Europe (a wooden sole as Japanese boots, but with one strip across a boot sock) which will be a uniform design with a pedestal, and also the built in spear with the metal glove attached to it to which the sleeve of the iron design covering a hand in turn fastens.
/В качестве дополнительной к изображении идеи предлагаю поэксперементировать с подставкой.
Мои художественные способности ещё не слишком развиты, поэтому реализовать в рисунке не получилось.
Идея: убрать подставку для куклы, заменив её следующими креплениями:
дополнительная колодка на обувь, как в среднии века использовали в Европе(деревянная подошва по типу японских гэта, но с одной шлейкой поперек носка ботинка), которая будет единой констркцией с постаментом, а также вмонтированное копье с прикрепленной к нему металлической перчаткой, к которой в свою очередь крепится рукав железной конструкции, покрывающей руку.

Also I offer an armor which on a hand, to make of a grid for giving of a design of ease, and also to glue from an underside a fabric, and already it is possible to put patterns on a grid.
/Также предлагаю доспехи, которые на руке, изготовить из сетки для придания конструкции легкости, а также проклеить с обратной стороны тканью, а уже на сетку можно наносить узоры.

Also in an investment to the letter I offer three variants of ornaments of a breast. On an initial idea I planned absence at a doll of a breast with replacement by a metal part or a tattoo.
/Также во вложении к письмо предлагаю три варианта украшений груди. По первоначальной задумке я планировала отсутствие у куклы груди с заменой на металлическую часть или татуировку.



Tolmora by Галина

When I was a teengirl, my father brought from trips various popular fantasy books.

Among them were various, which were pleasant to me also which were pleasant not so much.

This one is not so much :-), but have the perfectly detailed world and "The Word" which I remember till now, quotation in russian (I didn't find It in english):

"– Толмоора лохэлла мэй уик-ан, чэйсу. Это примерно означает – судьба человека всегда в руках богов, – с той же тщательностью я повторил жест Финна поднял открытую ладонь и развел пальцы веером. – Обычно это сокращают до одного слова: толмоора. Его более чем достаточно – оно и так о многом говорит само по себе.

Лахлэн медленно покачал головой:

– Думаю, мне это не настолько чуждо. Вы забываете, что я священнослужитель. Конечно, я служу одному богу, и он очень отличается от богов Финна, но меня учили понимать чужие верования. Более того – я всем сердцем верю, что человек может знать свое божество и служить ему, – он похлопал рукой по футляру арфы. – Мой дар – здесь, Кэриллон. Быть может, дар Финна заключен в чем-то еще, но мой не менее силен. И, быть может, я с такой же, если не большей, готовностью принимаю свою судьбу…

Он улыбнулся:
– Толмоора лохэлла мэй уик-ан, чэйсу… Какая красноречивая, фраза.
– А у вас есть что-то подобное? Лахлэн рассмеялся:

– Вы бы не сумели это произнести. Для этого нужно родиться элласийцем, он снова коснулся футляра арфы. – Вот эта звучит попроще: Ийана Лодхи, ийфэнног фаэр. Человек с гордостью идет по своему пути, когда он смиренен пред Лодхи.
И тут вернулся Финн – в облике человека, с белым лицом, и у меня больше не осталось времени для философии. Я смотрел на него – И не мог задать ни одного из тех вопросов, которые роились в моей голове.
– Разрушена, – шепотом проговорил он. – Стерта в прах. Сожжена, – он был смертельно бледен. – Обители нет."

- Дженнифер Роберсон, "Песнь Хомейны".

So, for else I used Norse mythology (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Norse_mythology), if exactly:
bout Valkyrie (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Valkyrie) and Odin (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Odin),
Runic alphabet ( http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Runic_alphabet ).

The hairdress of the girl is decorated by a red tape, on which ends coins (medallions) with runic ''day'' and ''joy'' are fixed. Fistly I think bout ''Day of God" as is bout Valkyrie, but than has decided to make an image of the death angel in general way.

Technical part/ Техническая часть:

Also I have another name for this dolly-girl: Gladiolus (from Latin, the diminutive of gladius, a sword) is a genus of perennial bulbous flowering plants in the iris family (Iridaceae).[1] Sometimes called thesword lily, the most widely used English common name for these plants is simply gladiolus (plural gladioli, gladioluses or sometimes gladiolas). - http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gladiolus

It cause She had a sword in her body, wich made in technique of "The Shape Shifter (Mammalius Kinesis)", but a little bit more coloured.
Also shoulder's fur bracelet made like that.
And edges of red drops on doll's legs.

As for drops, its is made from some kinda red glass or polish.

I considered a design of boots during some time, but and haven't dared at the closed shin.

On Doll's tummy She has flight of pigeons, wich means life, freedome and crossing.

Doll's eyes has two variants, third was just ink eyes without iris with hotspots.

Horsewomen by Галина

This is story bout rug. - Joking))).
But the true is that main inspiration, except ur creations)), of caurse, is so-called "well-known rug of my family": very long time ago, when I wasn't born yet, my mother took an album with reproductions of the Estonian artist Малле Лейс and has made drawing for embroidery by a dagger, then my grandmother has embroidered it.
The carpet has turned out remarkable, till now is in senses and light memory.

In pictures Малле Лейс often represents red horses, flowers, fruit and rainbows.

As a matter of fact it turns out that this inspiration after another's inspiration...)))

Technical part/ Техническая часть:

I will begin from below: the idea of socks is taken from the medieval period, favourite by me, is executed as a tattoo.
Further from metal - spurs, with a fastener in the form of a nut on a screw.
The same fastener is offered in one of ornament variants on a head - a wreath.

The helmet is decorated by pearls and patten apertures.
For balance, I think, it is necessary to make the basis of locks iron motionless and is symmetric, and on the ends to recover more mobile design.
Also I deliberate necessity of a metal chin for convenience and reliability of fastening of a helmet.
