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.

Trying Something Different

Journal Entry: Thu Aug 6, 2015, 2:38 PM

Patreon and more! (check links above)

It's hard to stop doing the BJD shop I love but their were so many problems for it that didn't work well for me especially with my health problems.

An etsy shop just wasn't really working for me well. From all the greedy fees, listing maintenance, and unknown income etc. It was an 80 hour job with little room for new creations with maybe 10 hour pay.... It also meant a lot of time advertising and trying to get my name and products known, even after 4+ years I still don't think I am very well known.

I want more time creating, and doing things I have been meaning to do since I started like doing tutorial and classes for 3D printing and doll making.

I also just really need less stress, and hopefully more money for my time.

So I am looking at a few different ways to do my BJd "shop".

First is the Patreon Account. This will be something for any geek/bjd fan/otaku/creative person, not just the doll fans. This allows a monthly income with people who agree to become my patron and choose to give a certain amount every month. Their are different rewards and extra prize goals depending upon how much is given, and I packed it full of goodies. This will hopefully allow a more steady flow of income and more firm goals on at least a few projects that get done every month. Also a great way to get more input from you guys on what I do and what gets created.

I also have a few project ideas that go along with the monthly contribution. I am looking into doing subscription boxes like loot crate and nerd block but with a BJD theme.

I may do a kickstarter or a new patreon account just for that once research gets done and I get enough demand or desire for this to become a thing. (any ideas and suggestions or if you want to get involved and make doll stuff, let me know)

The other plan that I have is paid lectures, for 3D printing. That will also be part of the patreon, but I will put it for a higher price onto a like udemy or an online class course site.

Of course I still have the shapeways shop as a way to sell items as DIY that shaopeways will print and ship to customers for me,  but so many items that need to be uploaded, descriptions written etc, it will take many months to come to fully get it to where my etsy shop was. I still have an etsy and a storenvy shop for a few items that are easy to do etc, but mostly it will be my patreon and other projects I want to focus on.


So unsure how it will all play out, but hoping it will be better then what I have been doing since it wasn't working. :(

Please look forward to updates and news and feel free to get involved with suggestions etc, especially if you have done a patreon account before etc.

Thanks everyone for all your support in the past and for the future. It means a lot to me.

COMMISSION List Remaining work

:star:PROGRESS:star: is NEVER done... No rest for the creative.

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
