Thank you all! Yes Blue, those are local beaches. First is Goring, then Climping then Goring again. Then me, obviously lol! The boy is my son, when he was about 4 years old. And that boat in the first one, I walk past that every Wednesday morning on my way to the cafe. Most of them are A2 sized canvasses, so they're quite big.

I love that picture Phee, it's like the dolls I collect. Very pretty.

Well it's not drawing, but it's arts n crafts I guess. My dolls are characters in a story I'm writing and one of them is a "glider" which is a little creature that glides from tree to tree, living in the treetops mostly. KoKo is a female albino who's a little bit la-la and gets herself lost a lot. I made her glider costume and her wig today and here she is!









That's her brother DanDan with her who hasn't got his costume or any hair yet. The purple thing was a keyring. I called it Moog and KoKo cuddles it all the time.

I had to make it all by hand, no sewing machine and the fabric didn't want to co-operate at all! Blumin stuff. I've got another one to make for DanDan when I get feeling back in my fingers. He'll be black all over and the fabric for his outfit looks awesome coz it has little rainbow sequin bits all over it.

They are ADORABLE! How big are they? Are they as tiny as they seem? I love her little story :)

They're both 26cm high and believe it or not the head sculpts for each of them is exactly the same! I just painted their faces differently. I was originally going to have a husband/wife team but the company that makes the dolls offered a buy one get one free (unheard of in doll circles) and that shape face was the one I really wanted so I got one in pink skin and one in white and made the white one a girl. As they looked like each other I couldn't make them a mated pair so I made them brother and sister instead.

I love how passionate you are about them Matty, I rarely see people that are SO into their hobbies its lovely :)

And they are wonderfully done.  Dolls of any kind scare me a bit if I'm honest (convert me!), but I can appreciate how bloody skillfully they're painted and outfitted! Really awesome.

Oh, Matty, those are gorgous!

My sister in law does BJDs and dollhouses, so I know how much hard work goes into each one ... they're beautiful.

Got a new one arriving today. My mum ordered a "Hujoo" which is a weird looking thing with huge eyes lol! I have no idea what I'll do with him. Probably make him a bit cyber goth I think. He seems like he needs bright colurs. I've already got the fur fabric to make the wig, it's intensely bright purple lol!

Well the doll arrived and I immediately set to work on him. He had no face or hair or eyes. In fact his real eyes are still in the post and I'm waiting for them. The only eyes I have are 16mm wide which is too small, he needs 20mm's but for photo's they look ok. He started out like this:



But now he looks like this:

His real eyes are like anime eyes, large black pupil but the colour is a sort of orange/brownish. I ordered them off ebay so I only have the company photo to go by. I'll know better when they arrive what the exact colour is.

Yeah he's a funny little pixie type thing. I dunno what to do with him lol! My mum ordered him for me coz she thought he looked like fun. I did enjoy playing with him yesterday.

LOL! I hadn't thought of that but yeah, he does!

My dolls come from various places. Hujoo's have their own website. A good place to look for them is Junkyspot and there are so many other companies I couldn't possibly post them all. Hujoo's are good and cheap - around 30 for a basic like mine was. Once they have a face they go to 50 or more depending on what they come with. Some have a face, eyes, hair and clothes and they can run into triple figures if the stuff is good. My most expensive doll to date is my big fella, Dollmore Suntan Mettaa he's a limited of 20 in the world and he was 500. He stands 75cm's high so he's a big boy too.

If, like me, you're not rolling in cash then you can collect them in pieces. You can buy the heads separately and get the body later when you have more cash. I have a few heads at the moment but a body is on the way for two of my heads (two heads but same character so I only need one body).

Here's some more of my doll work:

This:

Is now this:

Two of these:

Became these two: (Painted both faces, closed one head's eyes to make him sleeping, made the wig and the cigarette myself by hand.

I love Gorillaz, the story and the music so I couldn't pass up the "2D" Stu Pot heads. They were unfinished heads and when the lady got them, expecting them to be finished she was upset. You can't send them back if they're unfinished because you can finish them at home so the doll compnaies wriggle out of that one. I bought them, finished them and now I'm very pleased with them. The lady who sold them to me is very happy with what I've done with them. She commissioned the heads herself, they're the only two in the world.

I think this counts?
Finished modelling and lighting and texturing some 3D stuff today for uni, just have to pose and animate it tomorrow (I'm doing a combination of animated stuff and stills)

The story is of a music box ballerina who is unhappy with being tied to her spring in one pose twirling to the same tune, so when the box closes she goes into her own imaginary world (represented by a theater) in which she can climb off her spring and dance freely the way she likes in front of others of her kind.

That's fantastic Phee! So much emotion in a selection of figures. We do things at the doll forum, when we get a new doll the current dolls help to open the boxes. We take photo's of little dolls with real sized scissors, opening boxes and pulling out the packaging etc. One of my story lines was an extention of this set of photo's:






I love doing stuff like that.
