How to make BJDs?Recently I'm asked often to teach people how to make BJDs. So I decided to put all the info in one place so I could give only one link.
BJD (Ball-jointed doll) is a complex creation that consists of many parts and is strung with elastic. The joints are based on the balls (spheres) mostly or on their modifications. Good BJD in my opinion is not only properly stylized but also has a well thought-out jointing system that allows to hold a wide range of poses. Every type of joint serves a certain purpose.
BJD construction requires a lot of research: trial and error or usage of free knowledge from the open sources. So here the links list goes:
* Aimi-doll, a very good tutorial in Japanese: making a BJD from the scratch. http://www.aimi-doll.com/howto/
Many artists started from there, me included. I use this method of sculpting the head while making realistic BJD heads that have a real or 3D prototype.
You may use Google translate to understand the text but the pictures are pretty self-explan
mechanici want to kiss every aching wound you have,
bandage your heart every time it bleeds,
and patch up your mind over and over
because not a single tear deserves to fall
from your brandy-drenched eyes
but this dripping heart of mine can only feel
and the healing honey words it flames get caught
in the back of my throat and on the roof of my mouth
so i only have these passionate guttural cries
to tell you that i care all too much
and in order to fix you up again,
i would need to tear myself to tatters
and trade all of my working parts
for your leftover, fading pieces
but i just haven’t figured out how.
