Anybody still coming to this blog?
I was away from the dolly world for several months.. like over half year.
But I was making another prototype of doll.
I can't believe it took such a long time.
I had made a lot of dolls, so I knoq how long it usually takes... but it took quite long time.
I did't know that I could be this obstinate while I was working.
Of course I really worked so hard on my former dolls, too.
But this work revealed my obstinacy that I didn't know that I had.
My new doll is Italian and she is called Gabriella.
She is much more delicate than my former dolls.

I'm finishing my prototype now and it will be duplicated soon.
I can't wait to show you my new doll!!

Soon I'll make a facebook page and write the address here as soon as my doll get ready.

Sorry for not updating this blog often.
Now I want to share my process in a long time.
Let me explain about new dress for HyeJin Choi, my newest and only Asian doll.
Cause I designed the fabric, too.

It's Carmen's dress and I was so lucky to discover this beautiful fabric.
It has incision on midst of front and it makes decalcomanie which I love.
And it inspired me so I want to do it again for Choi.

And I also decided to design my own fabric this time.
So I tried water color illustration and digital graphic.. but I didn't like them much.

By the way, last year I tutored one artist how to make a ball jointed doll and she did marbling for her project and it inspired me, too.
I did marbling (maybe) when I was in middle school, so basically I knew how to do it and I tried this time.

Decalcomanie and Marbling!
It may be childish a little but I love it!!

I did marbling with so many sheets of papers..
and I got this one. It was done on the backside of sheet coincidentally.
Some part only... I didn't mean it but I loved it.

So many marbled sheets, but this accident was my favorite!! lol

I just cropped this small part cause it was only part that I loved.

I thought it would be very cool in decalcomanie with those beautiful colors and subtle lines.
So I edited it for dress.
Size, color, shape... and so on.

At the same time, my tailor was making patterns based on my design and simple pattern sketch.
As soon as she finished dress pattern, I edited my marbling image again to match to her pattern size.
If it was larger than my intention, I would lose those a lot of beautiful parts of this marbling..

 so the size was important.

And...finally I got my own first fabric from factory.
It's digital painted on poly fabric.
I worried about printing size...

and Thank God, size was just right for HyeJin!

I sent my fabric to my tailor again, and she made the clothes by the fabric.

She has another jacket and it was made in the same way.

But those red flowers are not my marbling or painting.
I made digital image with one flower photo and used this for her jacket.

HyeJin's dress has very simple shape but it looks very delicate because of those patterns.
In my dream, I was walking under the water and saw myself in the mirror in the water several weeks ago,

and HyeJin's face and those patterns remind me of the dream which I loved.

I hope you love my newest doll HyeJin Choi.

She will go for sale on 23rd or 24th.

Today's work.

I'm making new head sculpt as always lol

Left one is original and she was like 99% finished,,, 

but I thought she needs stronger structure so I remade this right one duplicating her face.
So basically they have the same face but I modified this new one slightly differently...
As a result, no big difference! I know sometimes I go a little bit too sensitive about sculpture..LOL

I don't know which will be better, but I'm finishing these two sculptures.
This new girl will be very unique either way.
I hope I can reveal my new doll this winter.

They have very unique faces..

This girl is one of my two heads in process.

I have always wanted to make more realistic heads.

I think this is pretty human-like.
I want to finish all my work and send them to factory right now so they can make them resin dolls.

but it always takes loooooong time. 

Carmen will be very happy to see her new friend lol.

Resin torso!
I didn't assemble this new doll yet.
Their resin gate are not trimmed yet. I will assemble her after 2 days.
I love the details on her body.

I'm so sorry that I still keep showing you only process photos!!
It's like teasing

It's getting late but I really want her to be perfect.
So I keep working on her more and more.
Her head got bigger just a little bit for her wigs.
I thought very tiny heads aren't pretty enough in wigs so I modified her head
And while I was doing this, I almost ruined her one eye!!!
I was like "O! God, please..."
I had ruined one head sculpt like this before so I was very embarrassed.
But Thank God, I made it somehow this time!!

I guess I only need a couple of days and I will take her to duplicator and discuss things like her skin color.
I can't wait!!

Here is one photo of Comparison between my new doll and Dahl.

Sizes of Torso is very similar, but her limbs are more balanced.
As you can see there are much more details on her body.
She got taller and her face got smaller for real model look.
In just a few days, she will be ready for duplication maybe.

I know I'm soooo slow!!
But keep working somehow.
I just want her to be my ultimate female doll among my dolls.
Sorry I hide her face. I don't want to show you her face yet.

Her one leg and feet should be done.
but I will arrange her entire body, too.

I wish I can finish making this prototype within this month

and send her to duplication factory next month!!

New hand for my new doll.
Still in process.
I'm making hands and feet nowadays.

They are so tiny so ain't easy to work.
I really want to finish this new doll but it will need more time :-(

At this point her entire body is done a lot but need to be arranged more and I should work her joints a little more.

I'm working in new way and experimenting things.
