DESCRIPTION OF SERVICES
Essentially, I'd like to draw on your doll. :'D More practically, what this means is that I will work with you either to execute a design you already have, or come up with a design based on your ideas through preliminary sketches before proceeding on to the actual doll.
I can work in a variety of styles, from stylized and graphic, to more fully rendered and realistic. Some of my various painting and illustration work here can give you an idea of what I mean by this. However, I will say that I feel that I work best when I use pencil and pastel in conjunction with each other, rat
Some Tips on Creativity in Doll PhotographyWell first off - crisis avoided. Hanging onto all of the dolls I was hoping to keep. I am happy. : )Some Tips on Creativity in Doll Photography2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Taizo is off for a new face-up by my friend Alex who is graciously taking him free of charge. Everyone else will have to wait until I have some funds. LOL
I have been going crazy with my art recently and have found that most doll photography is very similar and not as inspiring recently, including my own. I am making a point to create images that are unique and inspiring, in hopes that the community can all start to improve together.
Here are some points I hope to emphasize with creativity:
1. Unique and interesting doesn't mean you need to stay away from the head shot.
2. Styling will improve your vision.

The FAQ :: Updated 12/02/11ImportantThe FAQ :: Updated 12/02/115 years ago in Personal More Like This
Please take any questions related to buying from specific companies to the company websites, they all have Q&A boards for that specific purpose, from now on I wont be responding to such questions as I am not a company rep.
Please bare in mind that this FAQ is intended to answer questions that I get asked regularly about my own dolls. While I have been in the hobby for a few years now I can't claim to know everything there is to know about BJDs, especially when it comes to companies I have little to no personal interest in. If you do have general questions about BJDs rather than ones specific to my photography or my dolls please do a search over on DOA ( http://www.denofangels.com/forums/index.php ) first. I will attempt to answer any questions I can but please understand I never intended this as a question and answer about the hobby or doll buying in general.
If the below doesn't answer your question then please feel

I'm working on a tutorial but here's the link bowlroll.net/file/375
---Set Up Plugin---
Step 1. Download the plugin from this link - http://bowlroll.net/file/375
Step 2. Unzip the files into your plugin folder...for example on my computer it's "PMDEditor_0139(english)\_plugin\User". It will be the "User" folder inside the "plugin" folder in your version of PMXE.
( I think I'm actually using PMXE I don't think this works on normal PMDE -https://bowlroll.net/file/7512- heres a link to another plugin which I haven't tested and don't even know if it does the same thing, but the title seems relevant, it might work
November/December FeaturesSorry guys, it seems I'm very late once again. January and February will again be bunched together, and after that it might go back to being a monthly feature, but it entirely depends on how much time I have.November/December Features2 years ago in Art Features More Like This
First, here is a feature of dolly based creativity from November and December.
Now , here is a feature from my last journal, as promised ♥
Recasting and counterfeited dollsLately, the recast issue is becoming a real subject of concern for me. I've seen people on flickr congratulate each other for the beauty of their recasted dolls and openly talking about the ones they were about to buy : I received messages of threats and insults when I pointed out that this was both illegal and immoral. I wondered if I had somehow stepped through the looking glass and now up was down and right was wrong !Recasting and counterfeited dolls3 years ago in Art Features More Like This
A few days ago, a fellow french doll artist, Lilycat (check her work, she's great), discovered thanks to one of her clients a whole facebook group dedicated to recasting her creations. She's taking care of it like the professional she is, through legal actions. But that doesn't make it okay. This is a SERIOUS issue.
Creating dolls is difficult and time consuming. For my own first prototype, I spent more than 300 hours sculpting, sanding, piercing... Which means that when I sell one doll, I get about 1.10€ per hour. And that doesn't even take into account the mo

Patreon and LE Nails and MiraPatreon and LE Nails and Mira2 weeks ago in Personal More Like This
Once again sorry for the randomly spaced posts, I’m currently finishing up the last of Mira and Nails molds as well as working on their additional faceplates, I hope i have the additional faces ready to go on sale on the shipping day of the LE dolls but Im not sure thats going to happen, I’m having the faceplates printed in a high detail acrylic to save some sanding time (and its amazing how nice the prints are, In the photo of Nail’s “been fighting” expression the 3d print has only one very light coat of a non “scratch filling” primer and the lines are just barely visible, two coats of primer with a light sanding between is enough to make the print lines disappear) but I’m already running behind my initial release and don’t want to hold the dolls back any longer just to have the additional faces ready on the same day. For those who are curious there will be an initial 10 additi
DOLL FAQ. [updated 05/18/2015]Ok, so I decided to put up a Doll FAQ just like anyone else. Because my doll family is growing faster than I thought it would. I'm going to answer some straight questions I've been asked more and more lately, and ofcourse the standards of a Doll FAQ. Bare with me.DOLL FAQ. [updated 05/18/2015]4 years ago in Personal More Like This
For now it's just going to be the basic information about me or my dolls in general.
If there's anything missing in this FAQ please let me know !
It's going to be changed and edited in the next few months probably, so stay updated.

Am I allowed to use your photo's?
NO. If you want to use my photo for a specific purpose. LET ME KNOW. I might re-consider if you tell me personally and give me a proper reason.
Can I use your characters (dolls) for my own story/RPG.
No, my dolls are my own vision and characters. I put in a lot of effort into them and their story and such. But you're allowed to ask me. As long as I know about it I'm more okay with it. I w
DaisyDaisy3 years ago in Personal More Like This
Daisy is my second self-made doll (I don't really count my very first attempts here, haha).
My first one was Sophie http://fav.me/d570qbl.
When making Sophie, I didn't take as many photos of the progress, which is why I wrote out everything about her making http://fav.me/d570qff.
This time however, I took photos of about everything. So I will show you how I made my dolls in pictures. The process was about the same for both dolls, I only changed the design. And this time I solved the "hair-problem" right from the start... by using Barbie hair. xD

Eye Eye!My name is Max and I am an eye whore. I confess. My obsession is how to get the most realistic eyes possible for my little resin monsters. I have posted information about this obsession all over the show and felt, for the sake of extending my nerdiness, I should collect it all in one place. And that place is here, you lucky, lucky people.Eye Eye!3 years ago in Personal More Like This
My emphasis here is on realistic eyes for adult dolls, so the focus will be on small, photorealistic irises. There are many other sorts of eyes available that meet the needs of those who prefer a stylised, youthful or fantasy look. This is not my field and I won't be touching on that sort of stuff here. There is enough in this thing not to mess with that.
I am always keen to gather more eye-related information, particularly on the eye types I have least experience of, such as urethane and resin, so post thoughts, ideas and recommendations and, if it excites or informs, I will add it to this thing here.

My Deviantart StoryMy Deviantart Story1 year ago in Art Features More Like This
Deviantart is like the mother who gave birth to me. She gave me life as an artist, she allowed me to showcase my skills and creativity and even to express my ideas. Without Deviantart, there would be no Ry-Spirit!
Deviantart also allowed me to make new friends! Some of my closest friends I made are through here on this very website. And no they are not the three people in the image above, but those guys looks fun, contact me if you are one of the three people in the picture. Thanks
Deviantart has helped me grow as an artist and as a person too! Through positive feedback and compliments from the nice community!
Deviantart is like a home to me. This is the website I visit the most, I have made the most friends here, I also follow many other talented artists here who has inspired me. DA is my home!
