The Vessel With The Pestle

Crazy, this movie is absolutely crazy, but good fun too, if you haven't seen Danny Kaye in the Court Jester, you don't know what your missing. ;P Inspired by the movie I saw recently on the TCM network, I decided to make this doll of Danny. I've always loved him since I was a kid, and it was always a desire of mine to draw him in some way. This was a spontaneous, spur of the moment kind of thing, I got the strongest urge to doll him in his costume... It's not perfect, not by any means, but I had a heck of a lot of fun dolling this. :D There weren't a lot of pictures to reference this from, and the only good clear shot of his costume was in the poster. I absolutely hated drawing his hands! Blargh, I can't for the life of me draw hands, they always end up looking horrible. Also, I think I mutilated the baby's feet. I dunno how good of a likeness this is, but I think it's pretty close. I drew everything by hand, the diamond pattern was free-handed, I spent about 14-16 hours on this one.

For some reason seeing the little baby with the scarlet pimpernel symbol on his tush makes me think of Cabbage Patch Kids. XD Now that I've gotten this out of the way, and out of my system, I can continue on with my detectives. Back to finishing Sherlock I go.

Part of my caricature fanart series of dolls that I'm making this summer. http://dulcetfancy.deviantart.com/gallery/42738369

This totally made my day, thank you! :D Whenever I attempt to make a likeness of someone, I always enjoy adding my own little personal touches...it's extremely rewarding. I'm glad you noticed.
