When Dolls Ruled The Earth by cmalidore When Dolls Ruled The Earth by cmalidore
From a recent set for Pinnacle Entertainment Games.

When I was asked to do a picture of a bunch of rag dolls desecrating a dead man I have to admit I giggled like a little girl.... talk about luck! Needless to say, the fact that I enjoyed this picture seems to worry my family quite a bit.

Oh, and a no prize to those who can find the cameo dedication to miss *loriofpandora

Photoshop 7 over 4 or 5 hours.

What's really scary is why a grown man would have so many dolls in the first place!

(also, I love the one in the background that's been smashed into the wall. Hilarious! XD )

Hah I loved painting this, it was a lot of fun. I kind of want to revisit it now that I'm more developed as an illustrator. But I'll likely leave it be.

The doll jammed into the wall was one of those guilty pleasures that thankfully the Art Director didn't mind :p

I think it's the beginning of my venture into "cute" art haha

"why do you do everything dark and creepy?" they ask? Well there, this one has dolls. That's tame right?

....right?

Oh my goodness! This picture is wonderful and scary all at the same time! Very well done! I'll probably have nightmares later.

Next morning:

Phoenix7396: "It was horrible! There were dolls! And they were cutting up this body! Except they were coloured really well, and the perspective was great."

Housemates: :?

Looks like he smashed one against the wall before he was overpowered. Good job on the composition and mood setting. The lighting is creeping me out.

dolls are scary.

I always try and enjoy a concept, even the lame ones - the days that art gets pushed out are the days that I fail as an artist. Gotta enjoy it in some way :)

This one wasn't hard to enjoy though lol
