Ascker is my greatest achievement in BJD making. The doll is based on my OC who was created more than 25 years ago. Somehow I was able to express his elegance, inner strength and outstanding personality in a dollie form.
His anatomy is a synthetic combination of features of human, deer, akhal-teke horse and sighthound. He is a mage and adventurer, intelligent, strong-willed and with a kinky sense of humour.
Today he received a long-awaited DD on Deviantart: http://th07.deviantart.net/fs70/200H/f/2012/200/f/e/ascker___ready_by_scargeear-d57sg35.jpg

Not a Magnetic Duckling doll, but I was dying to show you my Cerisedoll chocolate Constantine painted by my friend Koala Krash.
Isn’t she a dream? I adore her so much I had to share her with you guys.

Koala Krash works in collaboration with me and paints the majority of my dolls. She painted Tika Massala and Art Nouveau, that you might remember (see previous posts) and she takes commissions too!

You can see more of her art at http://www.flickr.com/photos/koala-krash/

Long promised pictures surprisingly gentle, sweet and it seems that even the good little Dair-Demoness.

Here it is in all its glory with its curved black horns and ominously glowing eyes!

Hope you enjoy it!

Made under the pre-order. Not for sale.

At long last, the moment you’ve all been waiting for! Feast your troll eyes on the (mostly) finished bjd incarnation of Feferi Peixes!! 💖 (sorrynotsorry for the emoji)

If you’re not caught up on how this delightful mini dolly came to be, here’s a link to the Masterpost: http://sculptural-renaissance.tumblr.com/post/109842567282/feftober-master-post

She is 1:12 scale, which puts her at about 6” tall including her horns. The original was made from polymer clay with wooden beads for joints, and the parts were all cast in resin. I painted her with Minitaire acrylic paint in “Concrete” (it’s kind of meant for Warhammer stuff, but it’s also made to use with airbrushes). You can find the paint here: http://www.amazon.com/gp/aw/d/B009XP922K/ref=mp_s_a_1_1?qid=1427234419&sr=8-1&keywords=minitaire+concrete+paint I did use a paintbrush on her feet, face, hands, and torso, but I used an airbrush on everything else. I didn’t know if it would work, so I got an inexpensive airbrush that uses a can of propellant: http://www.amazon.com/gp/aw/d/B003972JIW I found that it worked quite well and will most likely use the airbrush for all the parts the next time I make a doll. Using a paintbrush instead of the airbrush made the paint a bit more shiny. I used my regular acrylic paints and my size 20/0 brush to paint details on her face and fingernails (also nipples because why not? I don’t care if trolls don’t lactate. Because nipples, that’s why). I used a larger brush for her shoes and jewelry. I left the joints unpainted.

I did have to make my own S-hooks since she’s so tiny, but once that was done, I was able to string her! I used a double-thickness of .5mm elastic I bought at Michael’s a while back. You can see all the parts laid out in photo 5. The bangles and choker obviously won’t go over the hands, feet, and head, so I had to string those on, too. They unfortunately limit wrist and ankle movement, but that’s ok.

After stringing her, I discovered that Feferi does stand on her own! Her pose is kinda…odd…but she *does* stand! I will be making her a stand at some point, but I’m frankly surprised she stands at all. None of my clay dolls stood, so this was a neat surprise. :)

In some of the photos, she’s got her hair braided for styling purposes.

Our journey is coming to a close! Don’t worry; it’s not over yet! Tomorrow, I’ll post some photos of her in her canon outfit (as this is a dress borrowed from another doll). Stay tuna’d, fronds! 38)
