Minimachina's arms by batchix Minimachina's arms by batchix
aaarrrms

i managed to make the arm molds and cast them this weekend. The hands didn't pour quite right and will have to be redone. Thinking I will also redo her elbows to be double jointed so she can touch her face.

I DID, however, replace the ball joints in her feet(yes she has them) with much larger balls. they went from completely unmovable to being pretty posable.

If you're looking for balls to use for joints I've made some in 3d here: [link]

you can pay to print them off, they're not terribly expensive. I don't make any money off of them, they're just there for your use. Pulkifee also makes some on her shapeways shop and she's got a lot of different sizes and styles. :3

Are you thinking of selling this girl in the future, or is she only for your personal collection? I'm in love with the smooth robotic look!

Not sure yet... the procast ones will probably be under $300 but i won't be for certain till i get closer to sending her out. Probably will be available in the fall. :3

AAHHH! So cute!! A tiny, adorable, robot BJD! I've been pining for a girl like this for soo long! :heart: :heart:
You're officially my hero now! xD
I love her cartoony, curvy shape! You've done a wonderful job on her, and I cant wait to see her finished! I think she'd look awesome with Drossel-styled pigtails!
She is so soo cute, if you ever sell her Pro-Cast, I'd be definitely interested!

Those FEET! They're so adorable! Itty bitty little mech feets. <333

Which, in retrospect, feels a little weird to say, but for some reason her feet are just so cute! :lmao:

i wish if i can make a mold and cats it me 2 work as sculpture and your work is awesome but the problem with my work is so breakable cuz i dint know how to mold it or anything about it

try looking at dan perez studio's workshop page. He breaks down simple mold making for sculptures. :3 If you're more interested in direct sculpting I'd suggest trying Apoxy Sculpt. It has a limited work time since it's a chemical set instead of baked, but it's extremely durable. Also sculpting on an armature made of wire helps keep the pieces from breaking too if you aren't already doing that. :D
