Sketch of the week: 12-Banshee

11 years ago 62

banshee2

This is the only sketch I have for Banshee. It’s very old; a lot older than the doll itself. I didn’t know it was going to become Banshee when I drew it, I just really wanted to make a peasant-like, summer dress. I noticed I’m really drawn to the look of folk embroidery on white, however, i don’t really like doing needle and thread embroidery myself. I learned some basic stitches as a part of home making course in grade six, but I never really took to it. I think it’s because the actual application of those skills was really boring, such as embroidering puppies and flowers on place mats and handkerchiefs. You know, the kind of stuff you would buy at a yard sale after it’s been sitting in  someone’s  basement for 20 years. Although I was pretty good with the technique, I don’t think I ever completed a single pattern out of sheer boredom and after a third or a fourth failed attempt at embroidering a flower I was like: “Alright, I am so done with that.” And then the next thing I ever embroidered was Alice in Wonderland doll’s stockings 14 years later. And that’s when I was wishing I had had a little bit more practice.

I just remembered that I have never done a full shoot for Banshee. I should really do that soon. Probably when I get home from Europe.

    I adore Banshee’s dress. The embroidery is simply amazing.

    Thank you so much for sharing your sketches ^___^

    Banshee is a gorgeous doll. My first two favorite nudes were Hathar and Banshee. And that dress on the sketch is beautiful! Makes me want one in real life! Hehe.

    The note up in the corner interests me the most – have you ever actually done that? Make limbs thinner so the clothing can be looser?

  3. Marina says:

    Yup, I have. The limbs are thinner for aesthetic reasons.

  4. Oh yes, I’d love to see an official shoot of her!!! Banshee is such a whimsical doll, to see the way you’ve envisioned her would be great… I sadly can’t do Victoria’s Banshee justice with my photography skills!

  5. aneemal says:

    I love the way you’ve drawn the folds in her dress.

    I’m with you on the patience thing. Do you ever get cramp from working so small?! My attempts at knitting with embroidery thread ended up with bent needles, aching hands and crossed eyes!! :-p

    Glad you do the things you do.

  6. annina says:

    aah i love Banshee, this sketch is beautiful!!
    great idea, i look forward to a full shoot of her, she is one of my favourites!

  7. Kimmi says:

    Banshee was my first love in the Enchanted Doll world :) I still love her so much. She reminds me of a beautiful medieval princess.

  8. silvana says:

    I like to read about your ideas…I think you to embroider very well….and yes, embroidery only dogs, and flowers not to fun!!! Certainly the sketch dress for Banshee is very beautiful and delicate!!! Banshee doll was one of all my favorite dolls!!!!

    Hello Web Admin, I noticed that your On-Page SEO is is missing a few factors, for one you do not use all three H tags in your post, also I notice that you are not using bold or italics properly in your SEO optimization. On-Page SEO means more now than ever since the new Google update: Panda. No longer are backlinks and simply pinging or sending out a RSS feed the key to getting Google PageRank or Alexa Rankings, You now NEED On-Page SEO. So what is good On-Page SEO?First your keyword must appear in the title.Then it must appear in the URL.You have to optimize your keyword and make sure that it has a nice keyword density of 3-5% in your article with relevant LSI (Latent Semantic Indexing). Then you should spread all H1,H2,H3 tags in your article.Your Keyword should appear in your first paragraph and in the last sentence of the page. You should have relevant usage of Bold and italics of your keyword.There should be one internal link to a page on your blog and you should have one image with an alt tag that has your keyword….wait there’s even more Now what if i told you there was a simple WordPress plugin that does all the On-Page SEO, and automatically for you? That’s right AUTOMATICALLY, just watch this 4minute video for more information at. Seo Plugin
