1  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Discussion and Questions / Creating a BJD - Constructive Criticism Welcome! on: May 28, 2008 08:13:56 AM
I posted this on DoA as well, but I thought it might be good to fish for input elsewhere too.  Anyway I am currently in the middle of creating my own BJD that is inspired by all of those lovely Asian ball jointed dolls out there.  The head has already been fired twice, so right now I'm reworking fresh sculpey over the hardened form.  I feel I'm finally getting the nose somewhere near where I want it to be and her profile is looking better, but I'm thinking maybe I might need to move her eye holes up a bit (wah, that will be a hard chore!)  and I'm having a lot of trouble getting the swell of the cheeks right. 

So basically I seriously need some constructive criticism!  I consider myself a novice sculptor, so lots of sculpting advice would be greatly appreciated!  And I welcome anyone to mark on my photos if it would better illustrate a point.  Thanks!

2  IMAGE REPRODUCTION TECHNIQUES / Screen Printing: Completed Projects / Ascension - One of my screen prints of last semester on: January 28, 2007 11:36:14 AM

Wow, I don't know how I missed the screen print section.  I've been taking some classes on screenprinting at my University and I love it!  This is one of my prints from last semester.  I call it "Ascension".  I used a combination of rubylith and transparencies with photo emulsion.  It ended up being entirely too many runs, and I was in the print lab constantly in order to finish this one time.  I am very happy with the results though.  The entire border of my paper was larger than my scanning bed which is why there is such a thin border right now.  Lastly this was a small edition or only 10 prints.

I have some of my other prints online at my DA gallery which can be found here:  http://tsukiyono-miyu.deviantart.com   Smiley
3  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects / Aloha Bunny! on: January 28, 2007 11:20:21 AM

Man, it's been forever since I have had the time to make a plushie.  School definitely keeps one busy!  Anyway the other day I was dreaming of warmer places since it's so very cold right now where I live, and I came up with the idea to create a bunny hula dancer plushie.  She is made of fleece and her applique is hand stitched felt.  The felt hula skirt and coconut bra are detachable.  She's about 10.5 inches tall from ear tips to toes.  It might be fun to make a "tan" version of her later, but we'll see. XD 
4  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects / Lovely Panda Cub on: March 07, 2006 01:40:26 PM
This is actually a character I designed which was intended to go on some stationary, but I decided to try to make a plushie out of her instead.  She is called a 'lovely panda' because of the heart on her belly.  She's kind of simple, but I think she's cute. 

I'm not sure what I'll make next, but I'm going to try to at least attempt to make a new plush each week.  I've been too lazy lately. XD  Anyway I hope you like my lovely panda. Smiley

PS: You can see a slightly larger image and some different views of her in my DA Gallery
5  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects / Little plush froglet on: February 15, 2006 06:01:04 PM
It's been a little while since  have created any new plush.  I think I got a little burnt out on it around Xmas time.  Anyhoot, I finally felt like sewing again and created this little froggie plushy.  I think he looks kinda geeky. XD

6  PAPER CRAFTS, SCRAPBOOKING & ATCs (ARTIST TRADING CARDS) / Paper Crafts: Completed Projects: General / Sumo Bunny Stationary! on: November 11, 2005 08:10:04 PM
Heh, this is my first time creating stationary.  I drew a rabbit in sumo gear in a letter I sent to a friend a while back and since then it's been kind of a funny joke between us...heh, yes we are simple.  Wink  Anyhow eventually the idea to create a stationary set of sumo bunny   was mentioned, and now here it is!  You can check it out on my DA page here:


Hopefully you guys might find it as entertaining as my friend and I do.  Wink
7  PAPER CRAFTS, SCRAPBOOKING & ATCs (ARTIST TRADING CARDS) / Paper Crafts: Completed Projects: General / Simple Mini Journals on: November 07, 2005 08:39:47 PM
Over this past summer I made a lot of handmade paper and started creating little mini journals.  They are all stitch bound with bead trim, and soft cover.  My aesthetic with them was to keep them simple and cute.  Below is an image of a group of a few of them, but some of them have been sold.


I was thinking for my next book project  I might like to try something hard cover for a change.  I like Japanese binding techniques a lot as well, and I feel I have yet to fully experiment with it.  I guess I'll just have to see where creativity takes me.  Wink
8  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects / Little Bandit Black Puppy Plushie on: November 07, 2005 08:23:58 PM
Well, I finished yet another plush.  I've had more time to devote to cratwork lately as I am nearing the end of a big project at work.  Thank heavens it's almost over!   But anyway, getting back on track...My latest plush is a little black puppy dog.  You can check him out and see what's he's made of n'stuff on my DA page here:

9  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects / Juniper the Melancholy Siamese Plushie on: November 04, 2005 11:23:27 PM
Juniper is a character from a mini comic I created.  He's a shy and somewhat melancholy siamese cat that has trouble talking to girls. XD  Anyway I finally finished him in plushie format.  It took a while because this particular fleece I was using wanted to be a pain.  I would have never suspected for fleece to be troublesome, oh well.  Anyhow I will just post a link to my DA page where his piccies are since it's kind of big. ^^;

10  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects / Moody Black Kitty on: October 29, 2005 10:52:53 PM
