sporadic update powers – ACTIVATE!

February 26th, 2012 by _d2_

i have been working on things, just…. not updating any progress anywhere where some one can see it.

and for that i feel bad, especially as i want to start offering at least one of my girls for sale by the end of the year and it would be good to have a complete record of their creation with all the horrible copiers and scammers and bootleggers out there.

but i cut apart my beloved kirin to start working on her more (i kept breaking her while sanding so figured it would be easier to work with her in pieces…)

one leg is mostly done and smoothed out – the other one is… quite rough…

isn’t it a cute little face? and she doesn’t even have her horns or ears yet! the horns will definitely be attached to the head, but i’m thinking of doing the ears on hooks with elastic like soom’s euclase or dollzone’s jeremy and una. while it can make wigs more difficult, the system is so much more stable than magnets or pegs.

is it alright to swoon over my own doll?

i also worked on my original girl pierrot’s body. i even now have two hands i’m happy with! i cut apart a junk cast of her right hand to create the left one – it still needs a lot of work though! and the new legs are coming along great, if i do say so myself!

the lovely curvy legs -

and smoothing out the joint of the torso – it will still be jointed, but i wanted to make a nicer, more invisible break

this is the boy’s body – sadly if i want all the upper torsos to be interchangeable i’ll need to adjust the shape of the bottom of the flat torso….

and the girl’s torso – the large bust i’m working on is also fitting mostly, but it still needs work.

and here is what has been distracting me for the last few weeks – an amazing piece of art from dollzone, my beloved moment “aphelion”. believe it or not, but he’s named after ratchet and clank’s ship ^^;;;; (don’t ask how i connected the two – but i do love aphelion and wish you could get to know her more in the games….)

i’ve already put in about 35 hours blushing him this far – he’s going to be a marble statue – but i fear i’m going to have to redo it all from the waist down as i don’t like at all how it flows when he’s all strung together…

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 ^^
