i can’t seem to keep my own deadlines ><;;;;school and my internship have started so i haven’t really had energy to work on my dolls… and i’ll be picking up more hours at my internship as well, so….yeah, it’s no real excuse as i really want to work on my dolls – i plan on making myself work on either cooper or xolotl for at least an hour tomorrow as i have a lot of pieces to get ready to be molded and cast.i really want to get them ready to go so i can also start on new dolls as i have so many ideas!but have no fear, i’m not abandoning my projects! they’re just… taking longer than expected ^^;;;;;

well – first off den of angels is getting rid of their artist subform – NOOOO!!!   and then i had xolotl’s lower leg nearly done and baked it – only to have it warp!!! i tried to straighten it while it was still warm and it snapped!!! *cries*so now i’m trying to figure out how to put the leg back together at the right angle – the glue didn’t work the first time so my mom is going to try and help me….i hope to start making the molds for cooper over the next few days – i started school a couple weeks ago and am starting an internship this week so my time has really been cut down, but i still have friday-sunday completely open – and with no wig commissions to occupy me ( :( ) i have a lot of time to work on my dollies.i’m hoping once i get cooper finished i can make a new head – a rabbit – based on one of my ultimate favorite children’s book characters – MAX THE RABBIT *^^*this is the expression i would love to capture – http://www.infrench.com/Merchant2/graphics/00000001/max.jpg – and would love to try and do jointed rabbit ears (jointed along the ear, not just at the base)with xolotl, i have pierrot to finish and then i want to do a cat/ lioness head to go on the xolotl body.and once those two heads are done, i’m going to focus on my one of a kind dolls for myself and friends. of course i plan on selling coopers, xolotls (limited), pierrots, and the cat/lioness (limited as well) – but i have so many ideas in my head that i want to give birth to and over the last year i have learned that i really can bring them to life and it’s so much fun!i’ve found that i want to buy fewer and fewer company dolls when i can make them myself and have them closer to what i want.okay… i think i’ve blathered on long enough ^^;;;;; off to work on dolls!

triple update – AGAIN!

February 2nd, 2009 by _d2_

what’s that? i have an update again! on three dolls nonetheless!yep – though they’re not all necessarily big updates ^^;;;;cooper’s head has been molded only to find more flaws so i’m still cleaning up his head – also am not satisfied with his mouth anymore, so i got a second cast of the head to play around with the mouth and eventually i want to do a partially or mostly closed eyed version of him too, so i’ll have to cast another head for that.with the other cast and the fixed up head -then i have a little bit more finishing done on pierrotv2.0 – i love her ear! now i’m dreading having to repeat it ><;;;;and lastly – after numerous tries i decided to do the lower third of xolotl’s leg in polymer clay to be easier to change and what not – however it’s taking FOREVER and a day…. after about an hour i have this much of her lower leg fur (fetlock? ) finished – it’s going to be another 3 – 4 hours before it’s done (including smoothing out all the crumbles and what not… )


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 ^^
