Orsino, First Enchanter of Kirkwall and commission for
who was terribly patient with me through December. He's got a voice box allowing him to say "Have confidence, Knight Commander" : )
Orsino, being an older fellow has some features of interest-- like Cain he has lines on his face, though his are smile/frown lines around his mouth as opposed to cheekbone highlights-- Orsino also has a nose! I wanted to give it a try, though I was worried any sort of nose would just look odd on a plushie, but I really like how it came out. I intend to add nose lines in future to older or more realistic dolls I think ^_^
Orsino also has a receding hairline-- I think I might do it a bit differently if I do such hair again, but I really liked playing around with a higher forehead and that widow's peak. Adding all the character to this doll made him very enjoyable to work on. ^_^
His clothes though-- agh his clothes. I've done things like it in the past, nothing new, nothing terribly difficult I thought-- I guess the cowl was new, but... every piece he is wearing I remade two or three times each except his gloves and the little red and yellow sash in front. Every single other piece... and he's wearing about four layers in some places...x_x;;; his clothes just did not want to cooperate! Despite that I really like how he came out and I'm glad I got the opportunity to work on him. : )
Orsino is about 14-15" tall and made of suedecloth with fleece hair and clothing. His clothing is accented with gold ribbon, pleather, jewelry hoops and fabric paint. His face is iron on transfer colored with copic marker.
