The Royal Library

Postby Snap Dracone » Sat Mar 12, 2005 9:19 pm

A kind and benevolent woman, Lady Graymalkin is the librarian of the Royal Library. However, she is rumored by some to be a witch, partly because of the obedient owl she keeps. She is also caretaker of the key to the Royal Archives.


Image changed to thumbnail by admin. Read our ToS about image size limitations.


So, just a 6x6 vignette... The hardwood floor idea was something I've had in mind for a while but never actually had a place to use it in an MOC. Lady Graymalkin was a fun character to make and write about, even if I did borrow her name from Macbeth. ;)

I'll leave you to decide whether she's a witch or not.

What's the point of having a cake if you're not going to eat it?

No, she's not a witch.
THats a cool vignette, I like all the brown SNOT pieces. I'm not so sure I like the cieling, but that's just me.

Hey, I like it! :)

The browns of the floor and the bookcase contrast nicely with the gray of the wall. The stained-glass also adds a splash of color. The only thing I'm not sure about is the fig herself. She doesn't look like a woman, just a old man with long hair! :wink:

A great vig all in all!

EDIT: I just noticed the detail of the key slipped onto her arm, such a cool detail! It looks like she's simply holding it on a keyring while reading. I'll have to remember that... :D

I thought that too until I looked at the gallery. She looks more feminine in the pictures that show her dress.

I like the vig alot, and like others have said, i think the keyring around the wrist is a very good idea. ;)

Kool vignette. I like the feel of this one; you can really tell it's part of a larger building.

Think twice. Post once.

The first thing I noticed was that that woman had a man's face! Seriously, I would have never thought of that as a female, but it looks of on that fig.

The detail in this baby is amazing. I really love the stained glass and the way the top of the vig is designed. It looks to me like something TLC would put out for the HP line.

Great Work,

Great Vignette! She's not a witch and I'm not a muggle ....
I like the expression - perfect for a reference librarian!
The key idea is great. I like the hardwood and corner table as well as the stained glass.
Nice stuff.

If she weighs the same as a duck, then she is a witch.

Nice work, I like the windows and the bookcase.

Yeah it's a realy cool vignette. I always like vignettes with books. I don't know why :D I don't get a "witch" vibe from her though.
