The Curio by Channel-Square The Curio by Channel-Square
This was done for my concept art class, and the assignment was to find a curio and then create a concept piece inspired by the curio. I couldn't find the curio I wanted so I made one: [link] .
After finding a Curio you had to write a short story behind the object :)

Basically my Curio's story, in a nutshell, is a doll created from the sorrowful tears of the Goddess Diana and the blood of her slain daughters. Sounds pretty gross in the nutshell version but I love mythology and I wanted to create a doll for my character Nuwtalie Numericallie.

Essentially this doll has been found and cared for by little girls throughout history. Since Diana is a protector of females, the doll protects and gives strength to its owner. It is said the doll has come into possession of great women throughout history.


And that's my story in a nutshell and here is the piece that was inspired by the Curio.

Enjoy!

OH! and it's not done, I'm just sick of looking at it so I called it a day :D

Really awesome work. I actually saw it on a tower ad on a website (advertising "DigiPen Institute for Technology") It gave credit to you so it was easy enough to find. XP

Hey Jenna!
This is Tara; we've actually met before :] I'm Julian's girlfriend. I meant to drop you a note sooner, but I wanted to let you know I'm on the webteam for Digipen and I used a piece of this image for the "Learn" blade on the front page of digipen.edu :] So yay for a little feature :] Great piece :heart: Thanks!

This one is my favorite! If it was done for class, why isn't it up on the wall? Was it up there at one point and I missed it?

The doll seems so simple, yet the woman at the top is so complex... THIS PICTURE IS SO SIMPLEX! (my favorite film analysis word!) ^^

Lovely creation. So whimsical and magical! =3

Another instant favorite.

Well, it's not all that big in Australia sadly. But luckily my mates girlfriend has some American friends who live here.. We're going to their halloween party B)

I bought a pumpkin this year to attempt making a jackolantern, since I've never made one.. But man it's so rock solid. I can hardly cut the thing.
