Forgotten Abbey


Author Comments

my newest doll ive created...based on the steampunk victorian style. tell me what you think but be warned:
on my deviant, this picture was denied to be put in a steampunk gallery due to its 'undone' qualities...i want you guys to know, its is SUPPOSED to be UNIFINNISHED due to her child who played with her grew up and left her. hence the name, forgotten abbey


I love her!!

your ''Abbey'' is so realistic. She's the type of doll I'd love to own.

thankyou :) maybe you might be her new owner ^^

almost there

I totally get where you r going with this, I like it a lot - I'd just like to see it go a bit further, perhaps the left hand side being even less defined, fading out to white or nothing sooner, and the right even more defined. (I know you can do it.) over-all, I love it. and as dolls creep me out, this is REALLY creepy to me - that is meant as a compliment.

lol thx and i love creepy dolls and fae :P


Nice job with this drawing! I think it could use a little bit more mechanical details. I would have to completely disagree with Xenotone about the "half-assed" part. Just because a drawing is almost done doesnt necessarily make a drawing look half assed. Additionally I also believe it doesnt make a drawing ugly or lazy(as said by Chieftx). But that all depends since art is subjective. Ive seen some really incredible drawings done by people that STILL look awesome even when its partially unfinished. I think leaving a part of a piece unfinished gives it character! It also shows the thought process of a drawing and leaves a little bit of imagination for the viewer. I think what would help your drawing have that cool "unfinished" quality more is if the sketchy lines (that dont have any values in them) werent so harsh. Perhaps if you can go back and make them softer by lightening them up a bit and then fade out some...I think it would improve this drawing. Overall this is a nice drawing! :)

thanks but no need to hit against Chieftx. :) he gave me some good advice he is just being professional about it. as i alway say about art:
Art is open for everyone's interpretation and may see the worst OR the best of a piece.

Good, But...

As Chieftx (The comenter below me,) said, you nedde to finish it up, otherwise it makes the picture look half-assed. Good job and all, but don't bask in the glory yet.

no basking has been done, just happy my little experiment with steampunk art went as well as it did. just wait for my next steampunk >:P u will be speechless lol

needs some work...

but is otherwise on the way to being an interesting drawing.
however the whole unfinished concept seems to be taken a little incorrectly if you ask me, if the story behind said character is that she is not completely built make it look like it, just making the piece look unfinished does not make it any deeper at all, it just makes the drawing ugly and makes you look lazy. if I were a group moderator I wouldn't accept it in the stage it is currently in anyway.
If I may make a suggestion, I think that by making her left and face arm actually look more mechanical and less finished then yeah, it would definitely look a lot better. hell this would absolutely splendid if colored, tell me if you actually get around to doing that I would like to see that.
