King Miraz, version 2 by loverofbeauty
King Miraz, version 2
Created using Game of Thrones Scene Maker on Doll Divine

Hello viewers; yet again I seem to be stuck in the proverbial rut with with these doll maker programs. It's just getting harder and harder to come up with original ideas. In desperation, I returned to my time-tested Narnian characters and whipped up a little something: this is a revision of my original piece depicting King Miraz.

The original piece was created back when I first discovered the Game of Thrones Scene Maker, and looking back, I realized that I may have gone overboard with the amount of clothing patterns and accoutrements for the character. For this new version, I kept the design as close as possible to the original, but simplified the outfits and gave everything a "cleaner" look (for comparison- King Miraz).

Nurse by loverofbeauty
Nurse
Created using Lord of the Rings & Hobbit Scene Maker on Doll Divine

This is something I whipped up a long time ago but haven't uploaded until now. It's a rendition of Prince Caspian's childhood nurse, who was never named in the book but perhaps had more influence on him than any other character (without her, Caspian would have never learned about Old Narnia or built up the compassion and generous spirit that allowed him to earn the trust of the creatures).

With regards to the character, I've actually imagined quite bit about what happened to Nurse after Caspian became king- a kind of mental fanfiction in bullet-point form: after he ascends the throne, Caspian takes her back into his household and treats her with honor and reverence. The style and color of her clothing- besides being regal- I deliberately constructed to resemble my rendition of Dr. Cornelius. Since Cornelius is a half-dwarf, and it is mentioned that Nurse looked like she had dwarf blood as well, I imagined that they struck up a romance under Caspian's reign (cheesy?). To polish off the mental fanfiction, I envisioned Nurse becoming caretaker and nanny to Caspian's son Rilian and Dr. Cornelius becoming his teacher- the same highly honorable roles that nurtured Caspian into the truest Narnian King since the Pevensies themselves.

Narnian formal wear- Edmund by loverofbeauty
Narnian formal wear- Edmund
Created using The Tudors Scene Maker on Doll Divine

Hello viewers; yet again I seem to be stuck in the proverbial rut with with these doll maker programs. It's just getting harder and harder to come up with original ideas. In desperation, I returned to my time-tested Narnian characters and whipped up a little something: this series depicts the four Pevensie monarchs in formal attire.

I used the same color palate for each sibling as in my previous pieces, but tried to the best of the program's ability not to repeat any patterns or clothing shapes seen in other incarnations of the characters. I also kept in mind something C.S. Lewis mentioned in The Last Battle: "He was fresh and cool and clean, and dressed in such clothes as he would have worn for a great feast at Cair Paravel (But in Narnia your good clothes were never your uncomfortable ones. They knew how to make things that felt beautiful as well as looking beautiful in Narnia: and there was no such thing as starch or flannel or elastic to be found from one end of the country to the other.)". Style, comfort and practicality; makes you wish just a little harder that today's fashion designers read the Chronicles, doesn't it?

Musings Made Flesh

Journal Entry: Tue Jan 14, 2014, 8:03 PM
A friend of mine has commented several times that writers for television shows are not paid nearly enough for the quality of work they produce. No doubt this is true, but tonight I saw for the first time just HOW true this belief can be.

In the latest edition to my gallery, I used a photograph of an empty pair of shoes to reflect my feelings on the introduction of NSA analyst Ellie Bishop to the NCIS team. While the symbolism of the image may be obvious (for full details, see my gallery), it seems the NCIS writers have fully latched onto my thinking. In tonight's premiere episode, Bishop commented to Dr. Rachel Cranston (Kate Todd's sister, for those who don't remember) that the shoes she has to fill are gigantic, and in some ways may be unfillable.

This is exactly what I was thinking when Bishop was introduced to the show, and, as I mentioned in my deviation, I hoped that Bishop understood that notion. Well, it seems that she does.
