Well, I've finally bitten the bullet and decided to upload progress pictures of the BJD doll body I've been sculpting on and off out of apoxie sculpt. It's a difficult medium to work in, as when it cures, it becomes very hard, requiring power tools to do most of the sculpting. I'm not terribly good at sculpting while the material is still soft.
Once I've finished the body, I will eventually cast in in resin, making a few versions for other doll characters. This first doll will become Alicestor's body, for which I have a CP Breakaway head, impatiently waiting for me to finish this body.
This is a picture of my full scale plans. The body, with a head, should be about 54-55cm tall. Yes, it is a very large sheet of paper. XD The body will be basically 1/3rd real life size.
I have tweaked with the design some since this picture, the upper chest and shins mostly.
As for why I decided to sculpt my own body, was that I couldn't quite find a body I liked that had the right mixture of proportions, size, posing ability and curves. I have been inspired by a fair few doll artists, and so this is somewhat an amalgamation of my favourite features from them, as well as my own aesthetics.
