A pair of fresh eyes on a face so jaded by cian1675 A pair of fresh eyes on a face so jaded by cian1675
Sion got new eyes. I'm not sure if the difference is that obvious ._. But it's much prettier in real life :)
Oh, and, finally I took a photo that shows his earring, even though he had it since forever. Well, technically Sion is supposed to have gauged ears but I didn't want to mod or do anything to his ears, so I just stuck big black round things on. The effect is still pretty good, I think?

Sion is a Migidoll Miho on a Little Monica type A body.

These things are like magic, every thumbnail looks like a real photo of someone. And then when I enter the picture it turns into a doll.

Haha, that's the most interesting way I've heard of so far to say that they look like people from thumbnails (which I do agree). Thanks!

No problem... I have a question, Im not sure if you can answer it, I searched for the answer myself and didnt really find anything. Is this doll photography its own kind of artform? I think its kind of a strange thing in general, but then again there must be a great amount of art talent put into sculpting them... however you may do that. Is the process like sclupture? Do you get a set amount of "clay" to work with, and use several tools on? Or do you just order these dolls and photograph them? I ask out of curiosity.

No problem :) Doll photography itself is considered an art form (I suppose it's just a subset of photography?) and there's many doll owners who take photos of their dolls. Most of the dolls (ball jointed dolls) are bought from companies, and only some people sculpt their own dolls. My dolls are bought for me to customise and photograph and also as manifestations of my OCs, but some people just get them to look at, haha.

And although I don't sculpt my own dolls (well, I did try, but the attempts weren't that great), I can sort of answer your questions about it. For making of the dolls, the prototype is usually made from clay and definitely I think the people who do it are really talented. They then finish their molds and cast them in resin (a kind of plastic) either by themselves or with companies, and sell the resin versions.

I hope that wasn't too long to read >_< The short of it, doll photography and doll sculpting are kind of different things, though for some the 2 overlap, and both artforms in themselves.

Interesting. Thanks for answering those questions. I have become randomly curious about this subject.

Haha, yes, his glare is his signature pose, haha. Oh, it's good you can tell the difference. I just felt it was as obvious in photos as in real life. The eyes are from eyeco, colour is dresden (which I've been stalking for a long time but was always out of stock. In the end I gave up an bought from ebay, haha).

I used round head pins for making jewelry. I curl them hear the pin head, then cut most of the length of the pins off, leaving just enough for the thin part of the pin to look like the ring of the piercing, and the pin head to look like the ball bearing. I used 2 for Sion's piercing, and its stuck with white glue. It's really fun to stick piercings into dolls :D ooh. A girl with piercings, what kind are you thinking of?
