i saw this wig on fairyland and just KNEW it had to be for pip – so i ordered it and it came today. man i was so right!

i also did a test stringing of her other leg (and of course broke her hip ball, but that’s okay, i was going to change them slightly and have just a plain slit for the joint instead of the ‘L’ shaped slit – it doesn’t do much on her) – her leg is supported by a skewer because there is really no jointing done on it. she’s not even done and i can’t stop taking pictures of her!

i do have to admit, i’m a bit scared about cutting apart her arm – i broke the other one already beyond repair….

some pictures

i had taken the day off because these last few days i’ve been feeling horrible, having a bad reaction to my medicine it turns out.

so strung up what i had of my boy and took some pics. the joints are still very very rough, his knee and hip need to be ground out more, his elbow joint needs to be sculpted, and i have just a very rough palm for his jointed hand. but i’m very happy with how he looks.

i’ve also started working on the webpages for my dolls – but i’m still quite a ways from posting them up.

the last few days have been hard -

i’ve been dealing with quite a few physical issues, but i still managed to knock out an anubis inspired head and started working on smoothing the lines on venus – as well as her shoulders. i’m going to try something new for her where her arms will be strung individually – i think it will work for her android concept.

i’m also working on the arm for basil, but no pics of that. i’m going to also start playing with some gallery coding and see if i can put up a moc gallery in the next few days on my website to show what all i have planned as i have sketches of most of the dolls i want to do.

anubis – though i think i want a different name for him….. and i found out that smooth-cast makes a black resin! i so know what i’m going to do for him when he’s ready to cast -

and venus on her body – i’m so happy with how she’s coming together… now if i only i can get that pressure pot from my mom so i can start casting…. otherwise i’m going to have to do it the hard way by hand to make sure there are no bubbles… and since i’m allergic to uncured silicon and resin, that…. that’ll be interesting.

the wheels of progress keep turning

yep, that’s right! i’m chugging away at my babies!

of course AFTER i took these pics i put in several more hours of work and got things a lot further :|

but basil has an arm in the works – not sure if i’ll mod it to work with venus (who has shoulder balls attached to her torso) or make completely new arms or give her no arms at all – hadn’t really thought that far yet….

pierrot also got ears awhile back and i didn’t take pictures – i’ve also worked on her nose after these pics.and pip has a second leg now! yay! and a second foot that’s mostly done and i’ve started on her other hand as well.

and inspired by soom’s anubis inspired doll ender (wow, an odd statement) i’ve decided to sculpt my own anubis based on the ibizan hound which some people believe the god is based on, and not a jackal. of course i have no pictures of that head so far because it looks more like something out of spy vs. spy…. or a plague doctor…anyway, onto the pictures!!!

i’ve taken the big step in cutting my male torso apart. i haven’t taken pictures of it in FOREVER – so it’s kinda a big jump.
i also have new pics of venus’ body, which i’m turning into a hermaphrodite android – every time i sketch her out, this is what she ends up being so i figured to give in and go with the flow. she also has a headback on right now that i’m making for my unoa zero sleeping marion faceplate.

my sister’s cat, bascom, also decided to help me out with “censoring” one of venus’ pictures. cats, go figure.

basil in progress in the crappy midwest light – thank you blizzards for closing work so i can spend time at home!

and the kitty culprit -


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 ^^
