no pictures today – i have been working on her, but the rain has prevented me from preparing everything for casting…. hopefully next weekend will be dry enough for me to do the test mold and spray the sealer/primer….. i have her hands nearly done – i just need to refine them in the resin cast, and i have her other foot nearly done as well. one elbow is still giving me problems, and i’ve fixed the two different lengths on her legs….all in all, i only have like another day’s worth of work left before i spray her to sand and then spray again, so i do hope to get her done this week. it will be so awesome to have her in my hands and in resin – i bet it’s like giving birth!

so close!!!!!

she’s nearly there!!! i posted her the other day on den of angels – link here! – and got some good help on how to improve her joints.i strung her completely together only to realize one leg is longer than the other, so i need to fix that…. i also have one foot and one elbow to finish.however, if the weather is nice, i should be able to do molds of her this weekend!i’ve also added a tab inside her body to prevent her from hyperextending backwards.insert

blotchy but beautiful!

started the primer stage – i got a brown primer to create a contrast with the white clay. i have to primer, sand, then primer again and pray it’s enough of a sealer for the molds. but she’s going really well and is nearly finished! yay! she kinda stands… but i don’t have any pictures of that…blotched 1blotched 1blotched 1here you can see her ear – it’s kinda a batwing/vampire/elf ear… i think instead of offering optional ears, i’m going to do two different headcaps – one with elf ears and one with human ears, and then make some optional ears to attach via magnets on top of the head (i have some cat ears in the works)blotched 1blotched 1blotched 1

new wig, new arm….

January 13th, 2008 by _d2_

well, most of a new arm – it still needs to be sanded down… but the other half of her face is done now – it’ll be smoothed out some when i put the sealer/primer on her for molding, and then i’ll smooth it out even more in the resin cast that i’ll make the finished molds off of.she also has a foot that my mom sculpted 75% of – then i did the finishing details – i’m so bad at feet ><### — she also helped me with the other arm getting it roughly the same shape as the one i had finished. i’m so lucky to have her helping me! i gotta now think of some way to thank her….i’m also working on her hands, but those aren’t anywhere near good enough to take pictures of…. and through a slight accident, her other leg was kinda broken beyond repair so i need to wait for some new clay to come before i can finish her leg *sigh*however, i think pierrot looks kinda good in blonde ^^ ((also went and saw sweeney todd for the second time and realized she kinda looks like mrs. lovett…..))anyway, on to the images – not a whole lot this time, just 3 – but i do love taking pictures of this girl and i’m itching to have her cast in resin so i can start playing with her for real!pierrot blonde 1pierrot blonde 2pierrot blonde 3

leaps and bounds

well, i’ve come a lot farther — her face is nearly complete, and i was able to string the pieces i had done as a test and for the most part they work! (her elbow still needs some adjustment)but i’m really happy with her! this open eyed face plate i’ve named pierrot and the closed eyed version will be oblivion.she only has one eye in (an 8mm one) because the other eye shattered when i was working on it ><;;;;;; so i was able to glue it back together, but i might not fix the shape until after i’ve done a resin cast…. she’s also wearing a size 6-7 wig from jpopdolls i believe.pierrot 1pierrot 2pierrot 3pierrot 4

she has a face ^^

well, it’s actually just drawn on to help me shape the face, but i’m loving her look!face 1face 2face 3i’m also working and reworking the joints — the elbow was too small to do a three part so i’ve cut off the wrist to make a wrist joint/ball and will be working on that as well as working on the knee joint. i’ve got the second arm mostly done, just ahve to do the finishing sculpting and cutting for the joint, and then i have the second leg, hands, and feet to do. i’m going slower than i thought i would, but i’m sticking to it and she IS getting done, and that’s what i’m most proud of.jointing 1jointing 2jointing 3jointing 4jointing 5

about


i've been drawing for as long as i could hold a pencil and art became my first language. though i've only been sculpting since 2007, i fell in love with the idea of being able to bring my drawings to life. i am heavily inspired by medieval macabre artwork, japanese yokai, and oddly enough, sherlock holmes. currently i'm living just south of beautiful portland oregon ^^
