Updating a favorite doll
So as I go about my merry way in life, I am amazed by how much I improve.  What really makes me happy is I can now look back at my past work and enjoy it, even if I can see the flaws.  I feel like that's a massive step for me, since I've suffered from poor self esteem and depression/anxiety most of my life.  It's sad that it took me to almost my 40's to get this way, but hey, I'm HERE.  And that's what matters.

Anyway, I am re-releasing the Dark Elf, since he's one of my favorites and a lot of people were asking for him.  There's a lot more dolls in his scale now and I am hoping that will make him feel more accessible to other owners.  I love his face, but looking at the chest piece on the 52cm doll, I was no longer in love with it.  I could see flaws in my anatomy and it just wasn't matching the detail on the Dark Elf head.  This head was never really meant to go on this body, the head was really just zbrush practice that became one of my favorite pieces.  But the head is much more realistic than some of my anatomy on the body, so I updated the chest piece to have more square pecs, new detailed nipples because somehow that matters to me, and better neck and trap details.  I feel like it works so much better with the head.  I've also corrected some floppiness in his joints and he's getting new clawed hands... which for once I managed not to make look exactly like my hands.

Also his lower half totally photobombed this picture.

I head the pleasure of sculpting the head for the Resin Rose BJD Expo this year!  She's shown here as a hand cast on an Iris doll body.

The sparkle!
I coated the inside of the molds with mica powder and suspended large mica flakes in the resin.  This is the result!  He's fairly durable, but the coating does come off if you really scrub at him with either acetone or windsor newton brush cleaner.  I'd assume that over time finger oils would do the same if you handled him a lot.  

The molds blew after these guys.  I made three.  I need to A) Do this only when the molds are new.  B) Get Mold Max 40 instead of 30 so the molds are tougher- or actually invest in some platinum cure for once.

So, I've been kind of deadish lately when it comes to posting art or working on my comic.  I haven't had any time.  Remember how I was doing portfolio work?  Well, it worked.  I have a new job and I've been working really long hours for the last few months.  It'll slow down here soon, but then it'll pick up again after September.  It's a super fun job and I love it and the people I work with, but sadly I don't have as much free time as I used to.  What free time I have had I've been spending on doll stuff and not drawings. :/  To be honest I've been nervous to pick one up.  Some of the guys I work with are super talented artists, it's a bit intimidating!
