I was afraid of mannequins when I was little and they still kind of give me the creeps.

Tuukke (Jun 16, 2004)

EverDream (Jun 16, 2004)
This is really good DBA. :D For a moment I thought this was one of Gigandas's or Icat's's that good! XD
DeadlyBlondeArcher (edited Jun 16, 2004)
That's on purpose... the angle of the light doesn't penetrate the glasses there. :)
Now that is a compliment... thanks, ED. :D
bumpinthenight (Jun 16, 2004)
very cool.... very very cool... I had always believed that all of those manequins were actually people imprisoned in plastic containers who had been poisoned or paralyzed and starved in their pearly external shells.... such are the mental meanderings of a deranged child....
Pandora (Jun 16, 2004)
DBA.. I believe this is the top number 1 drawing you have in your gallery. When in New Zealand, they had some of the the most outrageous mannequins, I have ever seen. I should scan some for you. Oh, would I love to have a painting of this....Extremely cool!!! love it.
Ixbalam (Jun 16, 2004)
That's so realistic it's creepy looking. The one visible eye really makes it.

When I was a kid there was this store (originally a factory outlet) called Playtogs and they always had these really creepy looking mannequins that were all damaged and had scrapes all over them like they had been dragged across a cement floor. They probably had been. I thought they were totally freaky. Especially the few that had eyes painted on. Even the male heads had too much eye shadow.

Wow, Dead.. you are getting better and better. This is just fantastic. I love the hair especially and the light reflections on their sunglasses.
Zack (Jun 16, 2004)
This is excellent. You have a good eye for detail, DBA. One thing that amuses me about this is that it's a realistic representation of mannequins, which are stylized and idealized representations of people.

They look so snobby.
Gigandas (Jun 16, 2004)
Just wanted to say congratulations on making it into the showcase DBA .Really deserves its spot here :).
davincipoppalag (Jun 16, 2004)
This is really great work Mizz Cindy . Mannequins kinda creep me out too, did you ever see that Twilight Zone episode where the mannequins take turns coming to life for a day?
DeadlyBlondeArcher (Jun 16, 2004)
Yes, I did see that! The Twilight Zone was one of my favorite shows... that gives me an idea for a drawing... :). When I used to model full time sometimes I had to take these crappy jobs, like conventions and stuff and a couple of times I was a mannequin (in a group of real mannequins) in the Galleria in Houston, and none of the adults ever spotted me... it was always the little kids, and the parents never did listen when the kids went, hey, Mommy, that lady up there is moving her eyes. It was so funny... the Moms would say "Okay, honey, and keep walking." (I hope they aren't traumatized now... lol) (Except of course for the bratty little boy that was hitting his sister that I scowled at. He ran screaming down the aisle)
Aubrey (Jun 16, 2004)
I dunno how you could stand still for so long like that but I guess it was worth it to freak out a little kid pickin on his sister lol. He's probably still in therapy for that one. Great picture by the way.
davincipoppalag (Jun 17, 2004)
...OMG that was YOU????? lol
Knockoff (Jun 17, 2004)
Wow, wow, and wooooowww.
You did a wonderful job on this. The glasses and the tint to cover the eyes abit is just excelent.
Ohh, I almost knowed one down one time when I was messing with it.
Supergurl103 (Jun 18, 2004)
