have mostly been working on her jointed hands (this is one of those times when i really wish i had more time to work on sculpts….) but also tried to make a wig for her (if anyone knows of a really good tutorial for making removeable wigs with stretch caps, i would love to hear about it)
and starting to detail her torso, lips and eyes…. gave her half closed eyes just to see how it looks…
added some more steps to the process I’m using to make ball jointed hands.
the tutorial continues with information about sculpting palms and fingers
I’m posting pics and notes as I make the hands for the white lady – here :
sculpting jointed BJD hands
this figure needed articulated hands… I’ve done one before, and they are incredibly time consuming and nitpicky – but I love them. As I’ve been working on this one i’m realizing that i’d never tried to connect the hand i did before, to a figure …. so i’m having to rethink some things.
But anyway – here are pics of her with her first hand roughed in. now comes the painful finishing of each individual joint so that the hand works well and looks ok. I think there are about 15 joints per hand, or thereabouts. next pair i’m going to make a little differently.
