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.
