Beauty and the Beast by Marina-B Beauty and the Beast by Marina-B
This is what I’ve been up to lately: working on this new doll for the group show in London at the Show Studio gallery. The exhibition “In Wolf’s Clothing” will open on September 9th and will run throughout the London fashion week and until the end of October.

The gargoyle in the shot for composition purpose only. It doesn’t come with the doll and I didn’t make it. It’s a bookend by Windstone, that I grabbed off my bookshelf as I roamed my place in search of fresh photo props. It worked out perfectly. I don’t know why I never noticed it before. It’s like it was waiting for this specific doll to be made to suddenly come to my attention.

I’ll post more pictures of her within a day or two. Too tired now. Must sleep. So much exciting stuff is happening this month…..You’ll see.

Very beautiful. For some reason this image reminds me of FKA Twigs.

This is so beautiful, there's also something about it that is reminiscent of eighties fantasy films like Labyrinth (my favourite!)

I've never taken the time to look at dolls much but your entire gallery is just beautiful.. beautiful craftmanship. This one is my favourite, although the bar is set pretty high given the rest of your collection. I'm not really sure what to say! Just so beautiful

I love your works, for me they are truly an inspiration, I love your composition, your eye for detail and above all the vision you have of the women, which is very similar to mine.
Your "vision" really make me dream, I always want to draw them and I follow a lot of your works, you are so fantastic!good job! :clap:

They work out so perfectly together, her soft features in contrast with the harsh looks of the gargoyle. I really like it. She is stunning.

I do love the way this photo is composed. Between using M. Pena's works (she is here on dA, I just can't get it right right now) and the sadness on your doll's face... Wow. Just... Impressive.

Her headdress is spectacular, by the way. Did you make it yourself?

Your dolls are remarkably detailed and realistic. I saw the thumbnail of one of them and clicked it believing it to be a photograph, and, here, many dolls later, I am still astounded! You are an amazing artist.

I am in love in your work. It is incredible. I've never seen such beauty. This one, Cinderella, & the Firebird are my faves. The expressions on the faces are...breathtaking. I sent you an email. Please respond when you have the time. Thank you.
