this is the most romantic thing i’ve seen all day
No shit. That tom cat was like:
"This thorn invested wall means nothing."
"I will gladly walk on it a thousand times over, if that means I could be with you, my lady."
and the lady cat was all:
"My brave darling."
OOOPS MY HAND SLIPPED!!
Suddenly my muse insisted me to draw the personification version of the last pic, and who am I to reject inspiration when it comes so willingly to me? At least this will help with the artblock issue I currently have to deal with.
Russian imperial era inspired because hot damn.
Note: I tried google reverse image (and other reverse image search engines) those photos and came up with nothing. I wish I knew the original photographer because I want to love hug him/her so hard for capturing such inspiring moments.
I’m shipping these cats I think that’s enough tumblr for today
I really wanted to get a resinsoul ya for a while now, but I heard that they have flaws much more frequently than more popular brands like Luts and Ringdoll. Should I look for a doll makers with better feedback?
Every doll has its flaws, no matter how cheap or expensive it is.
The kind of flaws you might encounter are just different, and in some cases you might not even think of something as flaw (be it because you lack experience or because you don’t care) while someone else does.
For example: I personally love Iplehouse (one of the more expensive companies), their resin is lovely and has a nice toothy feel, the colors are gorgeous, the faces and bodies wonderfully sculpted.
However, they pose like a fucking brick and their bodies are not designed to provide a wide range of poses. They are supposed to look good and that’s it.
Also some people don’t like toothy resin and prefer it to be super smooth and without seamlines.
They are expensive but still have their flaws, but I can accept them because I like their aesthetic.
Resinsoul’s are pretty cheap but still well made, you won’t receive a doll that is falling apart or something like this.
The sculpting is pretty basic, i.e. the faces and bodies lack a lot of detail and depth, and they have a few things you need to fix (like uneven eyewells, restringing and sueding for better posing, even some expensive dolls need that).
Resinsouls are pretty much “you get what you pay for” dolls, but with a bit of work they can be lovely dolls nonetheless, i.e. with a proper and well-made face-up, sueded/wired body etc.
This has NOTHING to do with “OMG only owners of expensive dolls say that!!!!one”, it’s often a matter of experience.
We have a BBB Charisma here next to dozens of other companies and I got to paint many more companies due commissions, and I can’t deny that she has issues. The body is ugly and can’t pose, her resin is for my taste too smooth and light, the sculpting is very basic and her head has tiny black dots and other little flaws. But it’s okay, because she’s a lovely looking doll with lots of character, it just needed more work to let her shine and bringt out the beauty in her.
So, if you want to get a Ya, get one.
Just keep in mind that she might need a bit of work till she’s perfect and that you won’t receive a da Vinci like masterpiece for such a cheap price.
THE NINE CHOIRS OF HEAVEN. An info-graphic for my editorial class and god am I thankful it’s done. Way too much went into this than what I had time for, but hey… I actually kind of like it?
Now excuse me, I must return to my fashion major lifestyle and go sew a coat u_u
