Sketch of the week 3-Pregnant Tattooed doll.

11 years, 2 months ago 22


Concept sketches for a pregnant doll. I was imagining her with short hair and actually made her a very short Edie-like wig at first, but it didn’t work with her face. I don’t usually make such detailed sketches anymore as I consider it a little bit of a waste of time. It isn’t really, but I figure why spend lots of time on a detailed sketch when I could spend it on actually making the thing. All I usually draw these days is a quick outline or a doodle just to remind me of the project while most of the sketch gets stored inside my head. The reason I made these is because a magazine asked me for them to go along with the article. I don’t know if they will end up using either one.

  1. These are so fantastic to see! How differently she turned out, especially her expression changing so much. The longer hair gives her more of a renaissance madonna feel, which I imagine will work well with the symbolism you’re trying to acheive. marina, you are a very skilled drawer too.

    Judging by the number of comments, this project seems to have attracted the most discussion by stirring viewers’ feelings. Sometimes that’s more difficult than anything. As my mum would say, you can be ‘damned with faint praise’.

    I can see how drawing ideas out may be deemed a waste of time. But, whereas you may not have time to realise all your ideas as they come, a visual collection of these ideas will become invaluable.

    Well, first let me say, that I am all for your life’s decision. You know what you want and will not be pressured to except anything else. I admire that. Go for it. While I love my children motherhood is extremely over rated. And I feel I could never achieve my own potential because of the time I have lost and the lack of support I feel even now from those around me.
    You have come soooo far! You are in your twenties and are already making a living from your art, WOW1 Even though your orders may be boring to you sometimes you are always learning from them no matter what. You are an inspiration to all the woman who want to do their art but are being pretsured to forfeit it for children.
    Congratulations on finding the perfect partner!!!
