WE? BJD model practice by yuumei WE? BJD model practice by yuumei
I just got my FairyLand Minifee Active Line ball joint doll [link] yesterday! (This is the specific one I got [link] minus the clothes.... so naked and $200 cheaper! ) :D I've been wanting one for years to use as lighting reference for my semirealistic styled paintings and now I finally have one :w00t:

I couldn't wait to try it out so here's the first colored sketch of my lighting practice drawings. There are others but I'm too lazy to post them now, maybe later XD

Of course a doll can never replace a real human body but this is very handy when you just can't find a good reference. Before this, I almost never use reference when I draw, which is bad because it's harder to improve that way.

I think the Fairyland Minifee Active Line is probably the best BJD out there for this kind of purpose since it has a lot of joints and can hold many poses that other dolls can't. I got a boy doll because he looks like a girl and the girl dolls are just way too girly XD My only dislike is the head, which is really childish and almost alien looking (without the wig) compared to the body [link] (<-- so creepy) I plan on sculpting my own head to put on there XD I'll take pictures when I'm done.

Oh, I'm sure you all know this character from Project WE by now? I tend to draw this person naked all the time which makes no sense because it doesn't happen in the story. And I'm not a pervert so...I don't know! XD

Now back to commissions and Knite! :D

PS: in case you still haven't heard. WE is put on hold until I finish Knite so no new answer in this post.

Looking at all the Art of Project WE reminds me of the anime Another for some reason.

Congrats on your Seroin! I love my Minifee A-line girl. She's amazing. And AMAZING art work, here and all through your gallery. I'm soooo in love with your stuff. And you sculpt like no other. And draw how I've always dreamed of. I can do sketches with life and heart and feeling, but when I add color, they go flat. And when you add color, you capture everything, hold it all in still, keep that same level of feeling. And I love that. Amazing, amazing, amazing work <3

I don't see why some people are so worried that she is naked ^^; The human body is meant to be a natural and beautiful thing, like all animal bodies or form in nature, though sexual themes nowadays as resulted in people seeing appreciation of the human form as something negative.
I love this piece and it always gets me riled up and patiently nerdy in front of my laptop as I eagerly await the release of Project WE :D

Well, isn't that perfect?! >_<
Phaedris Featured By Owner Aug 15, 2011
Really nice practice pic! The only thing that's a little off is the left shoulder.. However the shading on the right torso is spectacular, and I really like the hint of musculature in the stomach, the model's left hand and the highlighting :deviation:

Im not going to lie. I think Your quote "We Shall Wake To Sanity" Is officially my fav quote of all time for my life. Its haunting, really. Which makes me wonder. Is it possible the people in this are connected to dreams, or nightmares O.o??

Happens to me ALL the time (not perverted either). I always draw people naked first as a base and then it looks so nice i don't want to dress them up... even if I was planning to practice on clothes =.=
