She's such a cutie, I love her eyes!  I'm also a sucker for a toothy bebe and dig her whole pirate vibe 👌.

Thank you! I love open-mouth dolls and pirates, so I'm really happy with her! I just love the eyes from this artist, so I just happened to have them and thought they were perfect!

I really like the book theme and the outfit! The little magnifying glass and poses are great 😆

Thank you! I thought the rich colors would fit her outfit. My mom used to do photography as a hobby, so she helped me arrange a cute set.

Oh geez, did I never post this? I've been doing a lot of art recently, so it musta slipped my mind! (Speaking of which, if anyone is going to be on Art Fight, I might post my dolls on there!)

A while back I got a hold of a Real Doomsday head, and I really love the cartoony look to it. I wanted to make a smug mage type of character, I love rude academic type personalities. Mad scientists and all that. So I went to the concept art and ended up satisfied pretty quickly!

Well....pretty quickly. Note it's labeled G.2. It was a lot of different eye designs, I find that's my weakest part of designing anime dolls. I knew I wanted a glow effect to the forehead symbol and had a pretty good idea of how to do it. The symbol is the alchemical symbol for phosphorus, with the glow based on the color phosphorus glows naturally! I love alchemy, magic, and chemistry, so picking a design was fun :)

Could have probably used another layer to darken the lines, but shhh. It's so so humid here in summer, finding time to spray MSC is hard. The eyes are Compass' stock ones, they might be temporary? I have other eyes on the way, but I guess time will tell. The "glow" is just layers of pale green pastel with white paint on top of it, but that's not the only glow!

Excuse the blurry photo from my closet, but I added glow in the dark paint to the symbol as well! It's super reactive, only needing a moment under a lamp. I know I made fun of Danny Choo for requiring you to point UV light at your doll's face, but this slaps so that's my defense. This little light mage is named Levant, and they have a body on the way right now! I have a second Real Doomsday head with only one eye I'm hoping to paint once it becomes less humid, so get excited for that! Until then! <3

The actual glow is impressive ofc but you did a rlly good job with the pastels and the pseudo glow. Your character concept is cool!

Thank you both for the kind words! I'm really happy with Levant, honestly, they might be my favorite head I've done so far! I just got new cartridges for my respirator and on Wednesday I'm going to be heading for the craft store for some eyeburningly-bright paint shades in prep for my next Real Doomsday head! Not a vinyl doll, but I also have an Acat Bo Hakimi head on the way I'm incredibly excited to work on too!

Oh gosh, this doll was a ride. So this is Mistral (she/he pronouns), a Real Doomsday winking head, and their concept art took several wildly different passes to get right. I wanted a kind of jester, Mardi Gras vibe, so in the end I chose this:

ed4EgPO.png

The eye and mouth drawn by my girlfriend, and the graphic "wink" and eyebrows by me, plus some general tweaking. So I grabbed some florescent paints and got to work! And at the end of the process I stepped back and...wasn't sure about the doll? It took a few days before I liked her, which is unusual for me. I think he's cute now, though I wish his wink was placed lower on his face. I also really like the blushing this time! But more exciting than that is I decided to craft my own yarn wig.

I'll be the first to say it looks kinda messy, but considering this is my third wig ever and the first in about 8 years, I'm happy with it! Mistral is sporting the second eye from Polaris right now, and will likely get an Imomodoll body eventually. But Levant's body is going to be here soon, so I'm prepping for that at the moment! How do you feel about Mistral? I wish I could have gotten the eyelashes brighter, but I did my best. Until next time!

He kind of reminds me of a certain Hunter x Hunter character... 🤡

Hilowe is finally dressed enough that he can have photos taken of him! I took him outside very briefly (it's too hot!) for my first outdoor photos!

I put together some "School Picture Day" photos for Hilowe, and took a photo of Monty with her new backpack!

Took a while to post this because I had to gather all my WIP photos. When buying an Imomodoll body for Levant, I sprung for an Empty head, since I apparently want to keep accruing floating heads. I instantly knew I wanted a sinister, one-eyed appearance (this was before I even got Mistral!) and something like the shadowy culprit you'd see in Detective Conan or Danganronpa. So I immediately got to work on a mockup.

v7fZDk9.png

It's...not my best work, but I cranked it out fast to explain to my girlfriend the kind of concept I was thinking of. An eye and mouth mod with shadowy features. So of course, she took a swing at it and knocked it out of the park!

R4IVWhb.png

I was in love with this and wanted to get as close to it as possible. I've done some mild eye-widening with Little Boy Lost, but never fully carving out holes, and I've never made a mouth mod before. So I started up my dremel and (very very nervously) got to work.

9UZ4hsU.png

Here's my initial cut for the eye and sketch for the mouth. You can see I have to continue adding roundness to the eye at this point, I kinda cut too slanted.

j710ZGF.png

Mouth mod cut and eye rounded. I need to invest in those diamond files I've seen Japanese hobbyists use, they seem way easier to use than sandpaper! I only have a very fine grade sandpaper and some sanding sticks meant for nails, and the vinyl wants to spring away from them.
And finally...

y1oTCAf.png

Here she is! Be careful of Upside!

I've never worked with oven-bake clay before, just the kind meant for plaster casts, so this was an interesting experience. Makes me wanna sculpt more, I miss going to studio classes...You may also be able to tell I sculpted her teeth upside down somehow OTL but it's FINE it's fine just. It's fine.
Her eye is just a piece of paper I drew on with sharpie and carefully wedged into place. It makes her one of my only dolls with a follow-me effect, which is delightfully creepy. I honestly think she might be one of my favorite faceups so far? After the disaster Mistral initially was, I was glad to have a win.

I have two Obitsu 50-01 and an Imomodoll tan Rucy head on the way, and I have plans for the Obitsus at the very least! Though maybe I'll sell the heads after? I dunno, does anyone want my work or should I focus on continuing to improve first? Let me know your thoughts on Upside, I'll see you again in a few weeks! <3
