This is the design for Harlot, the LittleDead of Ariana, very loosely based on the idea of Envy.
I tried to symbolize this by sewing over her eyes, as she is blind to reality, but giving her a third eye in her chest, showing her constant desire for more.
She has no arms, unlike some of the LittleDeads, because she is so wrapped up in her desires she cannot grasp reality.
Littledeads have four arms generally speaking. As you can see, hers are being used as bindings across her chest both above and below her third eye.
I decided to go with Reds and pinks for Harlot, and her base tone is a light yellow.
So as my home side project I’ve been working on doll designs.
For two reasons mainly, I’ve been wanting to do my own dolls for three years, and I have found a project that mixes all of my talents together.
What it comes down to is a series of 7 plush dolls, each based off a different idea and character. They each have a house and all live in the same environment, which is a kind of creepy twilight zone.
I don’t know if I’ll ever get a space to present the full piece in, its a HUGE installation. My preliminary sketches will be up later this week as well as pictures of the doll designs.
The image attached is a vector image I created based on the characters heads. I have a 7th but I have yet to decide on the design.
