Ascker - ball-jointed doll: full view and posing by scargeear Ascker - ball-jointed doll: full view and posing by scargeear
Finally, after 1.5 years of work, it comes to an end. He is ready, I'm starting to sew a clothes for him.

Material: Apoxie Sculpt
Construction: BJD
Points of articulation: 21
Overall height: 60 cm + horns
Please see this pic for reference (Ascker is on the left): fav.me/d1vixlk
More pics here: irry.org/?p=scardawn_pics

Ascker is a very special character of mine, we are together since I was 8, so I don't feel like reproducing this certain doll at the moment. I don't want to see him badly customized, dressed in the "sock clothes", etc., and this is almost inevitable when you sell dolls. I have other dolls to sell though ;)

This doll is absolute perfection; I was awestruck when I first saw his stunningly handsome figure. Your efforts have obviously paid off, and its understandable you don't feel like reproducing him, he is just so special. If you ever made anything similar, or other deer / characters like this, I would be avid to buy in a heartbeat. Your work is wonderful, keep it up :)

I bought the silicone eyes from Eyeco, so they are set in. If you want to make your own eyes I have a tutorial though: scargeear.deviantart.com/art/M…

This is absolutely amazing! How did you put the parts together? I would like to make my own BJD very much so, please if there are any tips, pointers, tutorials, or any thing that might help I would really appreciate it so much. This is so fabulous. *goes into corner and cry, hoping for inspiration*

Wow this is stunning ;w; I just recently found out about these things, and I have a few questions if you don't mind?
How are the joints made/connected?
Are they hollow or are they full out pieces of clay?
What took so long to make it? I mean, it's a very symmetrical, obviously delicately made doll, but was there any specific reason?
What are the eyes made from?

scargeear Featured By Owner Jul 8, 2013  Professional Artisan Crafter
Thank you very much!
The pieces (not only joints) are connected with a strong elastic cord.
The joints are not hollow, they just have the stringing channels inside.
Yes, it took that long because the pieces are symmetrical.And also BJD is a rather complicatedly engineered thing: I redid the elbow joints 4 times till I received the proper look, movement range and fixation. Also, this is not the standard human-like BJD, so there are a plenty of my own know-hows designed specifically for this case. And, at last: Apoxie Sculpt doesn't allow fast work, but rather forces a sculptor to work in stages. It's a rather strong material so only the final sanding took me 2 months of work.
The eyes are from Eyeco and are made out of silicone.

Truly! He looks so delicate and strong at the same time. ^_^

Found another anthro today - a unicorn/centaur girl. Pretty, but nothing touches Ascker.

I'm looking around a lot at dolls this past week - trying to feel out what style I'll enjoy making. Starting out with felt and cloth for now.

Thank you very much! My aim was to make not only a doll accordingly to my design but to allow it to take a wode variety of poses. Glad you like it!
And I think Apoxie is amazing for my tasks! But I'm eager to familiarize wit more material, so could I ask you what material do you prefer?

I find Apoxie really sticky when in the molding stage. Sticks to me, my gloves, the surface etc, lol! Idk maybe I'm not handling it well. (Also I don't like the smell all that much! My first sculpt was made out of synthetic clay called Monster Clay which was really easy to work with, responds well to temperature (in fact you can heat it to a liquid state, it firms again when cooled which I thought was interesting) When it came time to mold though, it wasn't as rigid as it needed to be and so that brought it's own set of problems. I have molded in Fimo type clays too, but I don't like them much. I now have joined many others on the La Doll clay bandwagon. I didn't think I would like it, but it takes fine detail really well and you can add more clay to it seamlessly and easily and it sands, drills and carves well and works well when I'm making my molds. Wow, sorry to be so long winded!

Thank you very much for detailed response!
Apoxie becomes sticky if:
1) too much water used;
2) it's too fresh, so sculptors mix 2 parts and put the putty aside for about 30 min.
But the smell... it could be the problem for some people, especially for those who is allergic or just sensitive. I don't pay attention to it.

Monster Clay sounds not too optimistic ^_^

I tried Paperclay, it's similar to La Doll but its hairy structure... Ughhhh... I need finest grain. So I found Mungyo Sculpt Dry instead. It can be "sanded" with water, the top layer just dissolves. I made a model of my toad with it and then made a copy in Apoxie because it's much stronger.

awsumgal-Lux Featured By Owner Mar 16, 2013  Professional General Artist
Thanks for those tips on the Apoxie. I may try to work with it again. I think I still have it :o/
The La still has a little fiberousness to it, but much less than paperclay. I wouldn't be able to get the level of detail with paperclay. It's true crude I think. The fine texture of the La clay is what drew me to it. It also holds up well. If I drop a piece it doesn't immediately break. Although if I threw it at the wall in frustration or something I'm sure it would, lol!
The Monster Clay is aimed at people who are doing special effects make up and prosthetics and ultimately will be making glove molds. It probably works well for that! I still use it to block out ideas and for my mold spues and a few other things, so it's still useful in my studio :)

Mungyo Clay has no hairy structure at all and is rather strong)) Paperclay was much weaker.
Aha, I understood the purpose of Monster Clay! Should search some examples in Google, sounds interesting.

Hi Scargeear! I wanted to try out some Mungyo clay for my next sculpt and I was wondering where you buy yours? I can only find sources in India (they may or may not ship to me I haven't asked them yet) I thought I would ask you first :) Thanks!
