Love Doll: The Comic


Open publication - Free publishing - More 100 word story

This is a comic version of the 100 Word Story posted Monday. Although I'm not totally sold on dolls as a medium for comic content, telling the story that way was an interesting adventure. Staging dolls in the physical world is a lot more challenging than shooting avatars or 3D characters on digital sets. Simply getting a doll to stay in position without falling over is a challenge. And the hair! Each strong gust of wind or inadvertent fall requires a few minutes of hair brushing and repositioning. I had to repeat that process dozens of times during this one little shoot. Despite the frustrating moments, it was a great learning experience and I'm still planning on doing my big Doll Kong take off one of these days. But don't hold your breath!

It has the look of an old comic., and those photo stories. Brilliant storyline too.

Thanks. It's reassuring to know that at least a couple people other than me are amused by this kind of thing. I was shooting for a 1970's porn aesthetic. Minus the porn. :)

Great strip. I enjoy your doll posts and the medium in general. It's so interesting to see what people can do.
