Modernize Your OC -- Ends TBA

Almost all of us have OCs. Do you have one (or more) who exist in a different time period or alternate reality? If you're like me you do. This contest asks you to doll your character as they would normally appear in their world and to doll them again as they would appear in modern times. Side by side, interacting, whatever works for you.

I've used my character Pen as an example above.

If you don't have an OC, make one up! Better late than never.

You must use the same base for both dolls.
Both dolls must be made specifically for this contest.
Do not frankendoll yourself (no copy/paste jobs).
Do not trace.
Credit your bases.
Have fun.
may the force be with you. always.

My conworld's personification of Death as a CEO. Probably of a major funerary services company.

Quick question. If your character is non-human, say, an elf or a lizard-woman or something, do they need to be human for the modern version?

Hmm... I'd say that the modern doll has to be human since I really want to see the character grounded in a present-day reality.

I've noticed everyone who's entered is using a similar palette for both of their dolls, not that it's a bad thing. I'm really impressed!

However, I'm a stickler for historical detail and I'm dolling my character in wedding garb. I'm also keeping in mind beauty conventions and modern conveniences. Should I do a modern wedding as comparison, or just go for a similar palette?

You can do either or neither! The palette thing I think was purely incidental (at least in the case of my example doll). If you want to do a comparison of wedding dresses, that's up to you. However you can express your character in the best way. =]
