The Art of the Bride : Asunción Macián Ruiz

Here’s a supremely elegant Bride sporting delicate scrollwork tattoos. She’s a doll-maker, brought to life to create life in turn, making button-eyed monsters.

This sumptuous digital painting was created by Asunción Macián Ruiz, aka Medusa the Dollmaker, of Valencia, Spain. The artist dedicated the painting to “the divine Elsa Lanchester” and meant it as “a brief and tender tribute to all these movies that scared us and we grew up with, fathers and mothers of all actual terror films.”

The art was used to great effect as the poster for the first Festival Gótico y de Terror de Málaga held in March 2010.

Asunción Macián keeps a website, a blog, and a deviantART page.
