“Button eye” lineart

Ready to be colored! For months I’ve wanted to make this piece, but I could not find the time or the model indicated that fit with what I had in mind, and a couple of weeks ago, I was in the middle of a session of silly selfies, and I realized that one of the photos was perfect for this illustration. Anyway, I hope you like it. ^-^ If you are interested in this piece you, can write me to my inbox or contact me via ♥🌙🐱

Robert the Haunted Doll

It  was once owned by Key West painter and author Robert Eugene Otto. The doll is alleged to be cursed.  Robert was the inspiration for Chucky, the doll in the 1988 horror film Child’s Play. The doll is currently located at the East Martello Museum.

Eugene was given the doll in 1906 as a gift. Eugene’s parents often heard him talking to the doll. At first they assumed that Eugene was simply answering himself in a changed voice but later claimed to believe the doll was actually speaking. Neighbors claimed to have seen the doll moving from window to window when the family was out. Eugene died in 1974 and the unusual relationship with his doll lasted to his final days.

People believe that he has caused car accidents, broken bones, job loss, divorce and a plenty of other misfortunes. The doll was seen moving and giggling. Many who came in contact with Robert experienced bad luck and later beg the doll for mercy.

Robert is currently 113 years old.
