Holyday Spirit!

I got myself a tiny Xmas tree this year, and of course I had to get some pictures of Rei with it.
Hope you all have a great holyday!

Doesn't it make you feel bad?

I just wrote a bunch of lines about recasts, a lot of arguments and feels. But I'm not positing those after all, what's the point?
All I really want to say is: I've been seeing a lot of recast BJD pictures on tumblr and various blogs recently, and it just really makes me sad.

BJD pictures 2012

I tried making a mozaic with my most popular doll pictures from this year, but nay, it definely does not represent everything that I've worked on. So here's a hand-picked selection :


So goals for next year: 
- Find myself a new mold to work with, and I'm already working on that...not getting anywhere right now.
- Get myself a dremel in order to attempt some nice advanced customizaton without hurting my hands.
- Make more creative photo sets, start with not using white background and pastel tones all the time.
- Sculpt more and have my sculpting finished, polished and done.
- Get better in face-ups!

No BJD stuff, have a picture instead %)

Well, what do we have here. This blog has been particulary unupdated, probably because I didn't do anything BJD-related ever since I got back from Ldoll. I think I'm going through a doll-block this time, it's not like I've decided to have a break though, it just doesn't...happen.
The fact that no BJD mold of a regular size appeals to me doesn't help either, and I'm still allergic to 60+ dolls. I still have many ideas and things I would want to do, but no motivation for whatsoever and no mold to put on my wishlist. So, well...

I wish I had a wishlist.

What is your dreamdoll? Or what is the next one that you're getting?

No wishlist for the moment, although I would gladly have a nother project started. I would want a Narsha but I don't think I get along with tiny dolls easilly. I could give a shot to the new unoa boys, but I've always hated how the unoa dolls pose, all of them, so I don't think it's going to be a must-have for me.
So what about you?

Ldoll 2012 - fin.

Voilà enfin, un petit mot sur le Ldoll 2012, j'ai tellement de choses à dire et en même temps tout mon blabla aura l'aire insignifiant à côté de tous les bons souvenirs que je vais garder précieusement.

J'ai été très heureuse de revoir tout ceux que j'ai pur rencontrer l'année dernière, ceux que je ne vois pas assez souvent et ceux dont j'ai enfin fait connaissance cette année. Je ne le dis pas assez (voir jamais) mais vous m'avez fait rêver avec votre déballage de créativité, de fraîcheur, de partage, d'enthousiasme, et de talent. J'ai beaucoup couru dans tous les sens pour tout voir et ne rien rater et au final je me rends compte que je suis passée à côté de plein de choses et pas profité assez des gens.
J'ai aussi senti pas mal d'exposants fatigués, usés (ce qui est normal, cela dit), j'espère quand même vous revoir dans un an, ne vous découragez surtout pas et continuez à nous faire rêver svp :)

Bref, à tout ceux qui étaient juste là tout comme moi, ceux qui ont bossé beaucoup trop dur pour nous émerveiller, et avant tout ceux qui ont organisé cet évènement aussi génial qu'attendu, un grand merci!

Comme cette année ma propre participation a été quasi inexistante, je vais essayer de me motiver au moins pour les concours à l'avenir, histoire de...contribuer un peu aussi à tout ça comme je peux.
Je suis repartie avec une tête switch pour faire mumuse, des accessoires sympa, un grand sourire et des projets plein la tête que je vais essayer de faire avancer un peu cette année...

Ldoll anyone?

How fast the time flies! Ldoll is next week end and I'll be there of course! Is anyone of you going?
I'll bring Ezekiel with me and probably Vice too ^^

Réi is staying at home since I brought him last year %)

One less?

I seriously think about selling this doll. I love its soft pastel color sheme and I really had fun taking pictures of it, but I think I could use some space and time for new ideas.

Thursday, September 13, 2012

Pink!

This doll is always photogenic. It's almost exhasperating, none of my other bjd is. Or maybe it's that that I like white, beige and pink color combination...

Should I...?


Lately I was looking at my doll collection and a curisous thought left its seed in my mind - I could sell Ezekiel and get myself the same hybrid combination to have a base for Devin instead. Devin is an aquiatence o Rei's, he is a robot too and one character I would like to explore further on along with his interaction with Rei. The Dollstown elf body would suit him perfectly - much more then it does suit Ezekiel who is, unlike those other two, a real boy.
It would require modding the Dollstown elf body gender-wise yet again of course. This doesn't bothzr me that much though - since Devin is a robot the body mods would be much more deep and interesting then just female-to-male  regular stuff that I do not like doing.
But it would also mean that I need to mod the Zaoll head once again in order to have that lips, nose and eye shape that I like.
Aaaaand now that I think back to it, what gave me much pain about the Dollstown body were the legs : I've modified their shape that looked too chubby and the fat ankles in order to get the elegant thin legs that I like so much on Ezekiel. And that was a pain. And I'm just...not enough into the BJD stuff right now to make myself go through all that work.

Mneh...

Claws

I'm always amazed at how these hands and arms pose - with such a human grace and vitality.
Dear Dollstown, you do know how to make some amaizing hands and arms!

New alien-face

I'm working on Vice again, in order to bring his alien-ish dark looks back, so a new face-up, new hands and arms, and even new mods on the face.



I'm looking forward to getting a new wig as well, that character deserves more attention then what I've been giving it this far!

Something raw

Well I've started working on this project after all. I'm having a go at the face first, I hope I'll start the body soon as well - I'm not yet sure what technique I could use in order to make hollow curvy and thin body parts. The face is still very raw, and I have no ided how much time is it going to take in order to have it done.







The face is rather special as you can see, it's male, angular, and a bit cartoon. In fact I really tried to stick to this very particular character of mine:




I have to say that it really looks tiny to me, I wish I would have worked on a bigger format - but I wanted to keep the doll MSD-sized and humanly-proportionate with a small head. But I definetly want to have a SD mold sculpted sometime. But for the moment, I want to keep this going...

Friday, August 17, 2012

Furniture.

Well, looks like I'm keeping this body for th emoment after all. I'm eager to get a shorter wig for this doll so that it could finally start looking more like it's supposed to.  I don't even want to finish it's customization until I have it.



And hell, I swear my pictures don't do it any justice, it looks sooo appropriate in real life, sitting on my shelf. That's one very decorative doll.

Looking for an MSD boy body!

Well it looks like Dollchateau body doesn't quite suit me after all - it's nice, but..yeah, could be better.
I though it would be nice to play around with a different style of sculpture, and it was fun! But it's not something I'd eventually keep for good.-I'm not totally fond of the way it poses, and I actually prefere dolls with simple joints.
-It's very thin, and I do like thin dolls, but this one is thin and tall and doesn't have any shapes that would make it look like a boy.

That being said I'm not sure if I'll be able to change the body though. I'm very picky about those.
 I want a slim, edgy, curvy, nicely built teen-ager body. But a babyboy-chubby style like volks. Not a muscular buldgy style like fairyland. The Unoa body would be perfect in terms of aesthetics (although it could use some broader shoulders) but I used to own one and hate the way it poses.
I found myself interested in the Limhwa 43 boy body of Limho Mono - I like the way it looks although its waist is a bit too girlish.  The thing is I have no idea where to get it, how it poses, what does its color looks like and if it could fit the unoa head I would still like to keep... piece of advice, anyone?

For people who wonder what do I intend to do with the Cerisedolls head: I might use it for another project, I'm not sure yet, but I'm not selling it right now, so please don't ask.

Bonbon

Normally, this doll was supposed to wear a fur hoodie, a knitted scarf, jean shorts and tennis sneakers. And a short wig  of course. I'm getting all of this stuff sooner or later but I couldn't resist the idea of plaing around with some lace, ribbons and corset stuff:

 

Perfect Dead boy

Vergillian Slumber, formerly known as Vergil Crey deceased at the age of 14, frozen to death, has awaken to unlife two years later. He survives by absorbing surrounding people's life forces, searches for his murderer and goes to colledge. He looks very young and skinny compared to his 16 year-old peers, and has a hard time getting a girl to date him.

Cri du coeur

Voilà encore une fois une passe bizarre que je traverse niveau dolls.
Mon tout dernier projet en particulier - je ne sais plus où j'en suis, ça m'amuse un peu mais au final je ne suis pas 100% contente du résultat. Ni le corps ni les deux moules que j'aime beaucoup ne m'ont finalement pas convaincu tant que ça. Faudrait-il peut être essayer autre chose? Ou laisser tomber? Ou bien laisser tel quel, tant que ça m'amuse, après tout.
Peut être qu'il faut que je me motive à sculpter, mais à bien sculpter, au lieu de pleurnicher comme quoi il y a ci ou ça qui ne va pas, que les formes ne sont pas assez jolies ou les articulations trop chiantes. Encore faut il avoir les bras qui  poussent comme il faut et un minimum de persévérance. Est-ce que j'aurais ça en stock?

Sur ce, finissons quand même sur une touche de positivité:

Slumberboy - Unoa

Finally posting some pictures of my new doll - and a new dilema.
I got a Dollchateau body that I wanted to use with a Unoa head, yet I also got the Cerisedolls head I totally love. The unoa head suits the body better in terms of color match and proportions. It also suits my character somehow better. The cerisedolls head is just prettier (in my opinion).
So I made basically the same face-up on both, and took some pictures to see how it all works out.

Unoa l-bi/Dollchateau combination:

Absynthal Abyss


Ezekiel got an outfit made by Asella, I'm not completely sure that this is going to be his regular clothes style, but I got a bunch of pictures of him at last :D

Snow White?

Oh I've changed Vice's face-up again
Mneh. Trying to get him at least look more photogenic, but it didn't work out really well.
So I dressed him up with lacy white stuff for a photo shoot.
He look like a Pierrot... or a weird version of the Snow White :D

禿び

A chibi lezard-demon! Or warm-ghost. Or undead shrimp. Anyways, a small aggrissive and cute fella.
I'm not sure if it'a  girl or a boy character. I'd rather stick to boy - it doesn't seem anything like girly.
I's a birthday gift from my friends, it's so weirdly unusual and cute. And it's heavy and chubby and has little claws that are just perfect! I still need to paint its body with glyphs, and give it some accessories or clothes, and props. And find him a better wig ^^" Just look at it:

Doll Project, again eh?

Me revoilà avec un autre projet de BJD que je ne mènerais sans doute jamais à sa fin mais peu importe, c'est une bonne occasion de détacher mon nez de mes nombreux  écrans et de faire quelque chose avec mes mains.
Pour commencer, un croquis façon brouillon pour savoir ce que j'ai envie de faire avant d'entamer la production (pour changer). Un corps d'homme stylisé aux jambes épaisses et courbues, musclé et maigre. C'est d'ailleurs l'achat du corps Dollchateau (qui n'est pas prêt d'arriver) qui m'a poussé  à imaginer le corps de BJD que moi j'aurais voulu avoir pour faire mumuse avec. Et un visage assez rugueux, pseudo-réaliste, comme je ne sais pas les faire. Je songe à en démarrer plusieurs avec des traits différents pour voir ce que je peux faire sur des morphologies un peu vairées, mais en faire un bien, ce serait déjà un bon défi.




Je ne me fais pas d'illusions et je doute de la ressemblance possible entre l'intention et le résultat mais le cahier des charges est là :) Il n'y a plus qu'à prendre le temps, prendre mon courage à 4 mains et s'acharner jusqu'à ce que doll s'en suive.

Playing around with colors, I really need a body for this head nao :/

BJD Genderness

I know many people complain about gil molds being used for boy character/dolls. It might be annoying, this I admit. But, I would seriously want to make that:


out of this:



With just a little modding and the right face-up, you can really do something different with a certain type of face, like this one.

Wallpaper yeah~

Spring time, at last!

I took far FAR too many pictures.
These two aren't even supposed to be on the same picture, ever. But they make even my paper flowers look good *o*

Ezekiel, speedpaint portrait quickie.
I've always had a thing for that crimson asymetrical hairstyle of his ever since I came up with it while doodeling, accidentally.

BJD break

Hey there, folks.
I'm taking a little break from all the dolly stuff, not that I got enough of it though. There are still a couple of important thing that I'm waiting for -and  the wait is really getting on my nerves these days, so I'd rather have my mind distracted by something else. So most of my "creativity" time is spend on drawing, watching Avatar: Legend of Korra and being Lokied.

I home I can get the body for Vergil (Slumberboy) soon. With a bunch of luck it could be here in a month's time. But that's still a long way to go, and luck is still needed.  Man, I have to get myself some patience.
Cheers!

Vamp

These crimson curls make Ezekiel look like a vampire. Or the little siren :D
Either way, this hair is exactly what I've planned for him. Many thanks to Eclipse21 who crafted it!

Slumberboy - concept.

Finally finished a concept drawing of this guy:
The character's name is Vergillian Slumber - you can call him Vergil, I'll just stick with slumberboy.

Virgillian used to be an amaizing boy with a powerful gift - that of healing himself and others from any injury or sickness. 
But at the age of 14 he gets himself killed - having his inconscious body tied up and abandoned in an industrial refrigirator. He could heal his wounds but eventually his body froze. Two years later thanks to a blackout the temperature raises and the boy awakens from his sleep. Awake and - undead, with the ability (and a necessity) to suck life out of living things in order to  maintain his own existence that can no longer be retrieved.
He changed his name and kept on going by stealing little shreds of life from the people around him. He's always feeling cold and wears warm clothes even during summer time (unlike what you see on the picture).
The ropes left post-mortem injuries on his body while it was asleep and he can no longer heal those, since he lonst his gift for healing along with his own life. The unnatural lifeless slumber that took over him also left frost marks upon his skin, intricate patterns of blue and white.


The 16-year-old slumberboy is not of a sinister character though, he's a bit cynical, but mainly does what other teenagers do - goes to school, wants to date girls and play video games. Except that he makes people sick in order to survive. And it's kinda hard to date a girld since he also looks quite sickly and still appears to be more like a 14year old kid since his body has a hard time growing up while being... dead.

Eye color: Pink or Blue 
(depending on how cold he is)
Hair color: Pale blue
Skin color: Pale pink
Height: 1m68
Favorite weapon: scarf
Favorite food: hot chocolate

Slumberboy

My new bjd project: an unliving frozen boy.
I just had to get myself this head, and I could not resist but to give it a face-up! It's a teamporary one since I'm still waiting for his body and a very thorough face blushing will be needed for the colors to match.

Spring in Bloom!

Gosh how I love the Spring time. Even dolls seem like they are going to be in bloom :D

Oh My Alien


In terms of photography, I've been having a love-hate reletionship with Vice.
The only photo set featuring this doll that I really like is its very first one.
