I really want to get something off my chest....
Just a fue seconds ago I looked at some of the deviants of the people I watch and something caught my eye.
You guys really make some amazing work.
They're alot of people who I respect so much in the doll community. I just love their work and their skills to personalize a doll to almost a living human, but then I looked at their favourites and I'm like.. How can this be.. Such amazing work and that amount of favourites and views.. and then I look at my own work and I see my amount of favs and that isn't really fair.. You know what I mean?
Ofcourse I like my work, but I see sooo much dollpics who are waaaaaaayy better than mine. I know most people don't upload pics here on DA for the favs, just to show their work, but some favs gives you the feeling that peope respect your work. And everybody needs some love and re
Sad NewsWorst week of my life :cSad News1 year ago in Personal More Like This
A very aggressive URI took 3 of my babies away from me (I had already lost one 2 weeks ago)
I'm not very good at goodbyes in general but losing 3 in one weekend was too much (4 in a fortnight.) Anyone who knows me well, will know how much I love my piggies. Piggies are prey animals and hide their symptoms until their final stages. I spent my weekend trying to save everyone I could but I was too late.
RIP Twinkie, Fairy, Gucci and Jube.
I miss you so much already :c
I have 3 piggies left, all deemed incredibly healthy by the vet and for that I am thankful. I honestly thought I was going to lose them all.
Yuki, Pan-pan and Popple are still with me and we're mourning the loss of our friends together
I don't think i'll be around any time soon. If you need me, you know where to find me.
See you at the rainbow bridge girls.
About Ciel & SebastianThere are a lot of enquiries on Ciel and Sebastian and I thought it will be good to jot them here and for some quick references.About Ciel & Sebastian3 years ago in Personal More Like This
Ciel and Sebastian are both Ball-Jointed Dolls (BJDs). For a quick explanation of what a BJD is, here is the Wikipedia's explanation:
"A ball-jointed doll is any doll that is articulated with ball and socket joints. BJD style has been described as both realistic and influenced by anime. They commonly range in size from about 60 centimetres (24 in) for the larger dolls, 40 cm (16 in) for the mini dolls, and all the way down to 10 cm (4 in) or so for the tiniest of the tiny BJDs. BJDs are primarily intended for adult collectors and customizers. They are made to be easy to customize, by painting, changing the eyes and wig, and so forth."
These BJD doesn't come with makeup, outfits, eyes , wig. The price quoted for these dolls is usually just the basic doll (head+body). To cut long story short, I have appended some information about them:

What are these dolls?
These dolls are called Ball Jointed Dolls (BJD). A ball-jointed doll is any doll that is articulated with ball and socket joints. In contemporary usage when referring to modern dolls, and particularly when using the acronyms BJD or ABJD, it usually refers to modern Asian ball-jointed dolls. These are cast in polyurethane synthetic resin, a hard, dense plastic, and the parts strung together with a thick elastic. They are predominantly produced in Japan, South Korea and China. The BJD style has been described as both realistic and influenced by anime. They commonly range in size from about 60 centimetres (24 in) for the larger dolls, 40 cm (16 in) for the mini dolls, and all the way down to 10 cm (4 in) or so for the tiniest of the tiny BJDs. BJDs are primarily intended for adult collectors and customizers. They are made to b

in mourningi'm sad to say that my hamster, pip, died early this morning at 2:30 am. he had a habit of performing stunts in his cage. i set up nets to catch him when he climbed up his cage, but that didn't stop him from climbing all the way to the top and using the roof as monkey bars. i kept an eye on him, and he looked like he knew what he was doing. he's been doing this for a long time. the saddest part is, we JUST saw him last night to get up, take a pee, get a drink, and get some food. around 1:30 when i was about to go to bed, i heard a strange sound, and i went to pip to see what was wrong. i took him out and he was limp and breathing hard. he felt so... lifeless... i sobbed like i haven't sobbed in a LONG time. i told him not to do this to me, and i held him close, and mike was right by our side. we sat on the couch and i held him, pet him, and told him it was okay. after a bit, i set him on a cushy hat and put a cloth over him like a blanket. i knew there was nothing we could do. i don'tin mourning1 year ago in Personal More Like This

I've been busy speeding up the schedule so I can release my next webcomic, Fisheye Placebo as soon as possible. The current release date is set to early 2013.
That means Knite had to slow down a bit since it's difficult to work on 2 projects at once. However, I still aim to update Knite ch5 beta strips around once a week. You may have noticed that in the past, I posted Knite in full chapter flash format, but I really enjoyed posting beta pages on my :iconknites: account since this allowed more audience interaction. The problem was switching between accounts was too much pain, and updating several pages a day flooded people's accounts. In the end, I decided to post strips on this account instead. The strips will only be posted once a week so if you don't want to be spoiled, just ignore the strips

Yesterday I got a PM from a girl. She was really mad at me, because she told me that Candy was a Rip off/copy of some other doll. This is now the 4 time that it has happend. Also at a convention a went to, a girl told me.. ohh look.. it's a ***** copy.
Candy is 'probably' a rip off of 3 other dolls. I won't call the names, because I won't cause any drama and i'm not mad. I also wanted to clear Candies name like, he is almost 6 years old and always looked like this.. but then I'm afraid that people will find me arrogant. And then i'm accusing someone else of copying my doll and that is something I won't do. Ofcourse you get imspired by other people. Everybody does and then you want to make something that kinda looks like that. So do I. That is human nature, and again i'm not mad, but now people are getting mad at me and accusing me for things I didn't do. I made Candy 6 years ago an

So here's the story:
Apparently a week or so ago, our school's broadcasting team sent index cards to every student on campus asking them to write down a personal secret (NO NAMES!). I didn't take part in this activity as I was in a clinical setting.
Today, we walked into school to discover the main-hall window. In the center was a twitter-like "post" asking the students what their secret was, with about 100 of the index cards taped around it.
Most of them were depressing (i.e. 'I was disowned.' 'I watched my grandmother die.' etc.) and some were happy.
I was taken by a simple card that read "I am gay."
I felt the need to reach out to this person, but as there were no names on the index cards, that would be impossible.
During lunch, I got a sticky-note and wrote the message:
"PRIDE is not a sin in love."
and stuck it on the index card.
Class ended and as I walked to my next class, I passed by the window.

Love to hear your opinion!The art of storytelling is as boundless and diverse as the stories themselves. With the rise of the digital age and instant communication, story creators can now receive immediate feedback from the audiences. Sometimes, the audience will give critiques and demand changes to the story. Those of you in the gaming community will be familiar with the outrage over Mass Effect 3's ending, and those who love TMNT will know about the dissatisfaction over changing turtles to aliens. If so many people dislike something, should the creators reflect on the audience's critiques and make the necessary changes to please them, or stick to their original vision?Love to hear your opinion!3 years ago in Personal More Like This

I actually made doll pictures today... And I actually liked several... It's a miracle.
I just wanted to say thank you to all the people who took the effort to reply to my stupid poll. I'm sorry I didn't reply to you, but I assure you I've read all of them.
What actually shook me out of it were the few comments of people who said that I had to think of them when I was going to sell my dolls. For some reason that creeped the hell out of me and my first inner reaction was "NO! You're not touching my boys!" So that clearly showed me that the love isn't gone yet.
I just have to do my best to not set the bar as high for myself and just enjoy my dolls. This hobby is meant to have fun with, right?
