Wow candypop, she's lovely!! I paint and customize my BJDs, but I doubt I'll ever sculpt one myself. It takes me enough time painting them and making them clothes! ? Great work!!

I finally tried my hand at a mini sized doll!  ^^  I've made him better legs with MUCH smoother knee joints since these pics.  He still stands sort of wobbly, but he will stand!  lol.  If only I could get the hands right!  ><

Here's Puck!


standing!  and confusing the heck out of my poor tachikoma...


sitting


an attempted pic of his face, though I have no idea where the shadow came from.  ><

He still needs a lot of work, his eye sockets need smoothing out, his arms need some re-tweaking, I really need to learn to sculpt hands.  And I need to see if there's eyes and wigs in his size.  I didn't really follow any guides size-wise when I made him; I was trying to make a wishel sized doll, but I think he's a bit bigger.  I need to measure him and see if he's close to a standard doll size at all.

Wow, you are truly talented.  I love, love him. I'm glad you can't afford a BJD, otherwise I might never have seen what you can make.  TOTALLY AWESOME!

Thank you!  He needs a lot of fine tuning, but he's been so much fun to make.  I'll post more when I get him some eyes and a wig!  Now if only i could figure out his hands!  ><  I'm hoping if I can get good enough that maybe I could sell them one day.

I'm not doing personal swaps right now, but if you're interested, go ahead and PM me anyway--maybe we can work it out for later. Smiley

i was looking through sites of supplies and it seems there are so many things to buy!! is there anyway around some of this stuff?
maybe someone could compile a list of things you NEED to make one doll, no casting etc?

I just used super sculpey.  Don't use the regular, it's so soft you can't sculpt it well at all.  The super is really great if you need to carve and sculpt after it's baked, also.  I just stalked the denofangels forum to learn more about them.  You have to be a member for a month and have 40 posts, though, to see the good threads.   Several people have made sculpey dolls, though, and then gone on to cast them to make reproductions, but you can always just make originals of sculpey only.  The casting is just taking it a step further.

I think I may start a new one and take pics along the way, to sort of create a mini-tutorial.
