Okay... who's the fuzz-face now? by Gradendine
Okay... who's the fuzz-face now?
So yeah, I took way more than I originally meant to.  Sue me.

I'll probably pull this from featured eventually since it's a WIP, along with a lot of other cleanups.


I won't discourage constructive critique, but trolling, or anything I feel is borderline-trolling will be swept under the rug with the rest of the offal text.:aww:
Loading...
(I'm going to throw this one out sloppy, so please pardon/disregard any grammar/spelling/continuity errors that you may find.  I also pulled an all-night'er, so this counts double.)

So here I am, working on Sally, (my articuplush/doll), when I realize that all the flak that I've gotten over the years for this project weren't all just people messing with me for the lulzy "I want to fit in" value; but some of these people actually believe their statements and accusations are true!

So my hands are burnishing wood parts while I'm thinking "wtf?" (there's a good twenty to thirty minutes of mental chatter, about a third of the snippets containing references to mental deficiencies and other clinical terms generally considered to be insults when used in everyday conversation...  go ahead and ignore this side-comment if it doesn't make sense)

I was also thinking that maybe I should post some how-to's and tips-n-tricks on some of the work I do, since several people have asked me about them (that, and I just can't</i> do commissions for these.  It takes a lot more than I can describe in just one journal entry)

Anyway, in light of all this, I will be posting some close-up pictures of my little pet-project.  One-hundred percent in the context of the how-to/tips-n-tricks, but as an added bonus they will also alleviate the (genuine) misunderstandings.

I understand that some people will continue to to hold their current positions to the bitter end, even to the extent of screaming and pressing their eyes shut with all their might if the truth is right in front of them.  These kinds of people simply can not be reasoned with and you have to accept it and leave them be.

For everyone else...  I'll be posting some really cool stuff very soon if all goes well! :aww:

I am an artificer.

I sculpt.
Clay, cloth, wood, metal, pixels, polygons, lines, words, data...
All sculpting to me.

I'm in the process of starting a doll-making business.

To do:
1.) Cleanup
2.) Molds and tools need made
3.) A production cost prototype has to be made (slot filled)
4.) A production speed prototype has to be made (slot filled)

Sally is my development prototype. She's been an absolute joy and pleasure to make.

P.S.
Trolls, you're too late.
I have regained my senses and composure and did some awesome successful stuff! ;p
Attack at your own peril. :|

Now you don't have to take out your insecurity and self-hatred on others by trying to make them feel as completely pathetic and useless as you are from wallowing in your own envy and complete-and-total lack of any kind of skill other than being a semi- sub-par pooptroll! :aww:

Hey! It's just me John. I have a proposal I've been thinking about since I've seen your oh so happy face again. :) I'm nervous to ask you but I'm also wanting to take the risk to ask you. Get back to me when you can.

Thanks a lot for the watch, while i confess your gallery scares me a little i find it intriguing, it's nice to see how you built sally from scratch and how you do what you like no matter who dislikes what you do :3

I saw a picture of your work posted somewhere (with the obvious implication that it was an actual human skeleton) and did a reverse image search... I wasn't too surprised to find out it's not real, but damn you've got skill.

Saw the thing about your dolls on Tumblr and was suspicious... Turns out my apprehensiveness to believe was justified. Your work may be a little odd to some, but I find it beautiful in its own way. It takes true skill to create something so lifelike.
