That Caged Up Feeling

by Dream9Studios in The Dark Times

Creation Date: October 31, 2012

A worn and torn voodoo doll reaches for him pin in the hopes of freeing himself but it's just out of his reach. Death is watching.

Wow, I have no idea how this really came about. Inspiration just struck me like a lightning bolt and then I just had to create this now rather than adding it to my growing "notebook of ideas". It amazes me that I've managed to mix creepy and cute, darkness and levity, despair and sheer adorableness. That's not an easy thing to do!

I used my upcoming Sammy Samm Samedi pack for the pin and doll's textures. For the lighting I used IDL Studio 2 along with a couple tricks of my own. The slight glow on the raven's eye is postworked as is the grunge and border... which is about the only postwork I ended up doing other than some slight image contrast and clarity enhancements. I posed him myself using the weight mapped version from the Samedi Special Edition pack. That cage is awesome too... need to find more uses for that set of cages!
