Edwardian Grandmama by Rythea Edwardian Grandmama by Rythea
There aren't many(if any at all) dolls of older people so I thought it would be a nice challenge to try to make one.

This is baseless except for the head. The head was morphed from the base shown below.(which is a base you can find in one of my old bases zips)


And while it does have its flaws, I really love this one.

Thank you for viewing<3

::EDIT::

;_; Thank you :iconeternal-sins: and :iconhollinesskiss: for the DD. I'm still amazed and so incredibly happy. And thank you to everyone else for the lovely comments and all the faves. You guys have really made my day♥

Daily Deviation

Given 2013-01-31
Edwardian Grandmama by *Rythea is an incredible example of how far a portrait base can go. This elegant doll has such soft shading, perfect for that gentle, elderly woman feel. All the small details of it begin to make us create a story for her, and make it seem so much more than just a doll. ( Suggested by BlackfyreValyrian and Featured by IridescentStardust )

Oh my gosh, she is lovely! She seems really wise and gentle.

Good job! You should probably make an old man to accompany her (if you have time), she is probably lonely ;)

Lol you should! I might now be able to see it until next week :(

They are actually backyard chickens. I raised a few to three months old and sold most of them.

I plan to get more chicks since I just sold seven hens to some good friends.

Lol they can be intimidating, including those that actually look mean.

Wow, congratulations on your DD! I'm so pleased for you and it's so well deserved too especially with this doll as it's so unique and fresh. Also I posted this earlier on your journal but I think it will be icing sugar on the lovely cake you have made, so here it is: [link]. I found it when I was submitting a piece of artwork tonight :heart:.
I hope you get many more of these too :P though you gotta wait 6 months in between hehe.
