Contraption by FionaCreates Contraption by FionaCreates
Edit - Thanks so much for the DD. Totally unexpected! Thank you for all the watches and favs.

Here's a photo of her as she is today, hanging on my wall reminding me sometimes crazy ideas can work - [link]

For the Illustration Friday topic Contraption.

I got carried away with not only drawing a contraption (or in this case corsets and crinolines) but turning the drawing itself into a contraption.

Drawn in ink, scanned, printed onto thicker paper, cut out and assembled.

The assembly involved stinging a bead on both sides of the hole because I didn't want to use split pins and get little bronze discs everywhere.

For anyone who might want a high res file (with instructions :P) please get in touch. As it's black and white you could colour it in yourself, either digitally before printing, or with crayons or paints after printing. (Cost of high res file $5)

Daily Deviation

Given 2013-01-22
Contraption by `Pyrochan-dolls The suggester writes: This piece is both inventive and fun. The ink work and level of detail stand on their own, but when made into a doll (with careful consideration given to the joints) it becomes all the more impressive. ( Suggested by shellpresto and Featured by maytel )

If I had a more efficient but looked good jointing method I would love to have all kinds of changable things, heads, bodies, shoes... but alas she will remain as she is XD

Thanks :D I wanted her to contrast the sad mournful looks most jointed dolls have and be strong and willful instead.

Thank you :D It's a byproduct of wanting to make my own jointed doll with my style and not having the skills for that so doing it out of paper instead XD

Thank yee :D I'm working on another one as a super secret project for a friend not on dA (or at least I hope she's not reading this)

It seems to work well for steampunk because of the mechanical nature of it.

It's quite a simple concept as to how it's put together. Though it was harder than I thought getting all the limbs the same length XD
