SKETCH
Pencil sketch of one figure (humanoid) scanned and touched up digitally in my style. Sketches ordered are a bit freestyle and in my style of course. You can give me some reference like your original character description or a doll pic (I am not super good at duplicating but will do my best) or say just draw me a hot boy elf, kinda thing. Not able to do animals well, mostly humanoids please. One character per sketch. Either a full body, or a more detailed upper torso/head. No XXX rated stuff etc.

Terms and payment are negotiable.)

If interested in the design phase or testing, please feel free to note or comment. I am specially looking for people who have experience with doll modding, people who have good or better cameras and photography skills, and or stringing experience. Please note that this is all in the experiment and testing stage, things may not work, and there are NO refunds. You will get something regardless. I thank you all very much in helping me to learn, create and share my work! This is my job and only job, I live with my husband at my parents home and with student loans, medical bills etc, your input and is not only helpful but vital. Thank you so so very much and a big shout out to all who have helped in past projects!

*this is the cord I use on my dolls: www.walmart.com/ip/Bead-N-Stre… found at walmart, the .7mm clear beading cord, has a nice tension without too much stretching and decent strength.

If you could have a BJD doll head from these characters which would you choose? (boys round)

Silverbeam doll SHOP CLOSED

Journal Entry: Tue Apr 7, 2015, 8:02 PM


Silverbeam doll SHOP CLOSED

After 5 years of creating dolls and doll accessories and geekery/cospaly accessories, I am throwing up the flag, at least for now. Especially with my health and circumstances, I spend all of my energy and time on my business and it just doesn't make a drop in the bucket. That would be fine if it was meant to be a hobby, but since It was intended to be a self business and took way more energy and time then a hobby would, it just isn't working.  

I am trying a new prospect unrelated to dolls hopefully with my husband as he needs to get out of his awful job too.


Any prior sales and commitments will be upheld as best as I can, and the shop is still currently open for custom doll eyes and mystery doll bags and mystery geek bags, and any in stock items till stock runs out.

I will still try and find time to fill my passion and to create dolls and items, and put them up as DIY items on the shapeways website, but for now what is done is done.

Sorry, all other requests have been cancelled at this time and will not be taking any more commissions. Health and finances have forced me to close shop (At least for a long hiatus).
I am going back to BJD as a hobby as I would like to be able to enjoy myself more. I will keep personal side projects and will be updating the shapeways shop so people can get items as DIY. Sorry for any disappointment etc.

Most items that I used to make and sell I am working on getting them available on my shapeways shop so at least people can purchase the 3D prints and DIY (paint or assemble).

If their is anything in specific let me know, otherwise their are tons of different shops on etsy/ebay/taobao, etc, not too many I know do cosplay doll props and of course no one else does my dolls, but their are lots of good dolly stuff out there.

Hi i was wondering if you can help, i saw your 3D design of loki's staff from avengers assemble and I'm trying to find images based on the staff when he's in germany using it as a kind of walking stick, if you have any images I'd appreciate it because I'm trying to get someone to replicate it for myself as a walking stick to use everyday

ugh, finding images was really hard! I didn't get much, getting the movie and grabbing stills is going to be your best bet
