i’ve actually been working a lot here and there when i have time (mostly on venus and my large girl body)

here are a couple quick pictures – i was messing with venus’ face and have added in a groove that will define her face plate, but her head needs to be resanded now.

the bodies are both still rough and a bit blobby right now too because i haven’t sanded them yet. in case you hadn’t figured it out, i hate sanding ><;;;;;; but at least it's easier on the paper clay and resin than it is on the sculpy.... so here she is - shown with my yugiri/fantasy doll hybrid who's about 60cm tall - as you can see, venus is larger than her and she doesn't even have feet yet! i planned for the body to be around 65cm and it looks like i'm right on target ^^ on the full sized body -

in a wig, please ignore the markings on her face ^^;;;;

on the start of her halfdoll body –

as i was going through and looking back at old posts to add tags to make them searchable, i realized…

i still really love classic pierrot and beatrix…

so i’m going be pulling out their face plates, dusting them off, and seeing if i can’t upgrade them to the body. they’ll be cleaned up and refined, but i love their dolly-ness and i know they had some fans in other people as well.

i’m not giving up on the upgraded pierrot (who i had called 2.0 but then looking back i realized i already had a 2.0… so maybe she’s 3.0 ><;;;; )

just to let you know –

i took a short(ish) break and am now back in the swing of things thanks to spending some time on my big girl venus.   i am working on sanding all of cooper’s pieces and patching up the last few spots for the *hopefully* final molding/casting – but the weather hasn’t been very good.i’m about 1/3-1/2 way done with sanding cooper then it’s the patch work and another sanding, so i’ve got about another week’s worth of work on him. i then hope to finish xolotl, who has a lot more work to be done on her (patching her leg, refining her upper leg, ears, and headcap and then sanding all over and primering – which since that has to be done in a lot of layers can take a couple days by itself)i’ve come to the realization that i will never produce a doll as finished and refined as a professional company, and i’m okay with that as long as i produce the best doll i can, and i think i’m really close to it.


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 ^^
