How to Create Photostories, Part Two
Community Week
Photostories, for those who don’t know, are essentially comics put together with photos as opposed to drawings. They can be as simple as a few frames making up a one-two-punch joke, or as complicated as several installments of a series. For mine, I use Asian Ball-Jointed Dolls (BJDs for short) to represent my characters, but you can use whatever suits your fancy and your vision. This is the second and final part to the series and you can find the first here ->  How to Create Photostories, Part 1
The Situation:
Now we’re finally getting a bit more technical! Now that you know who your characters are, you get to decide what happens to them and what they do about it! Yay! I usually start with a very vague idea, honestly, when crafting my photostories. They’re just for fun and don’t follow large-scale story arcs. When I sit dow

    I’m frequently asked for advice on how I put together my BJD photostories. Here is a step-by-step guide for the process I usually go through, and some tips! Feel free to pick and choose what advice you take away from it. My way may not be the best way for what you want to create, and everyone has their own style, but if you can find anything helpful here, great!
    There’s a lot to do before I pick up a camera…the first half of this guide has to do with characterization and developing the players in your story. Feel free to

Hey! Just a journal with a few updates since I've been absent for quite some time.

1) I received my lovely Soom girls a couple weeks ago and they are waiting to have their magnets glues in, be sueded and blushed. They have such lovely outfits that, once all that previous stuff is done, they are pretty much good to go! I'm hoping to get together with my friend and do a nice pre-blushing teaser photo shoot.

2) Next paycheck I'm going to put in a fairly large order with Safrin eyes since pretty much ALL of my dolls need new eyes. I'm sort of tired of the unrealistic pairs that I own. Everyone needs smaller irises, I think. Not much of a fan of the giant eyeballs... Oh, I've also been working more with "eye placement," since I stumbled apon a very helpful post in Tumblr. :)

3) My friend and I have been collaborating lately and have decided to start making clothes for my dolls. She doesn't have any as of yet, but she loves sewing and has a lot of supplies, so that's exciting. I'm working on a bustier/ high waisted dress for Sybil atm. It's coming along a lot better than I had expected. I think I will make a romper for her afterwards. n_n

4) I may be making a secondhand dolly purchase very soon, but that's a bit up in the air at the moment, so I will try not to jinx it for now!

5) For quite some time I've been battling the idea of selling some dolls to get other ones that I want. I've decided to put that behind me and just work with how many dolls I have and want, rather than trying to cut them back. (8 and one floating head. How did that happen? Geeze.) I think the reason is that I just get so overwhelmed knowing that I have to cloth all of them. New dolls mean new eyes/ wigs/ shoes/ stuff! And it's a lot of work, money and time. But there's a lot of dolls I want at the same time so I need to just get over it and deal with it. Y'know? Oh, I'm sure most of you do haha. :P

6) I blushed and sealed Matthew the other day, he is still in need of a couple wigs.

Aside from the doll stuff, I'm finished school until September. Sort of anyways. Technically I'm taking a course online but I hardly count that as school. Also, one of the local veterinary clinics wants to take me on so I can get my volunteer hours towards my program, so that's exciting! I've also started working (almost) full time which is so wonderful since now I can afford more than just my bills. Plus, my lovely fiancé may be getting an excellent job in September so we are crossing our fingers for that one. It would mean moving away, which I've been waiting for!!! :) On to new and exciting things, I had a very good feeling about this year.

I know you must be as busy with finals as me but did your girls get home safe? :) 
ToriPhoenix Featured By Owner Apr 25, 2014  Hobbyist General Artist
Hey lovely, my exams are all finished up now but I've taken on full time at work. Yes, my girls arrived home safely. They're splendid. As soon as I have a day off I will be sueding and glueing in their magnets. They need eyes too haha so I need to put in an order for new eyes for basically my whole resin family. n_n Next paycheck! <3
Also, my good friend and I are getting into sewing for the dolls so here will be some teaser photos up soon.

How're you? How was school?
