I've never really been a fan of dolls (they creep me out), but this is seriously an amazing doll. He looks so cool and cute <3

That makes two of us then. :) Never (and I'm still not) been a fan of dolls in general. They don't creepy me out. Not much scares me. :D But I just had no interest in them. However I love ball-jointed dolls because I can make them look like my OC's. So I enjoy painting them. Glad you like him!

haha I'm really starting to have an interest in these ball-jointed dolls. I've been looking at a lot of them lately. I really do love that they can look like OCs. But they're so expensive  D:

Yeah, they definitely are expensive. But it's usually because they're artist made, not mass-produced. So there's a certain amount of artistic quality put into them that most dolls don't get. XD You basically buy them blank. No paint, no hair, no eyes, no clothes, nothing. And you turn them into whatever you want. Pretty fun and enjoyable when you have your own OC's that you want to bring to life. :) I'm lucky enough to get to paint hundreds ever year for other people!

I guess I'll have to search for just blank ones. It would be fun to make these myself  ^w^ 
Do you sew the clothes? And what do you make hair out of? (Sorry for the questions. I know next to nothing about these  ;n; )

:iconasainemuri:
asainemuri Featured By Owner Jul 23, 2013  Professional Photographer
Most companies/artists sell them blank. :) Though they're usually advertised fully designed as examples.
Haha, no wayyy. XD I can't sew for the life of me! I usually buy them from TaTa's Paradise www.tatabjd.com/en/, NineStyle www.nine9style.com/index.php or Black Carousel kuroi-carousel.deviantart.com/... -- and the hair is usually made out of various materials, such as faux furr, synthetic fibers, etc.

It's no problem! I don't mind answering questions!

One gorgeous boy and one gorgeous photo. x) I love the piercings you've given him! I always find they add so much character.
I have to say, if I see one more beautiful Jina boy... he might end up on my wish list. x'D

XD I was never a HUGE fan of Ryu (even though he's really cute) until I saw the Cynical Ryu...and I had to get him, LOL. He's beautiful, too! Oddly, the Cynical Ryu was never hugely popular until recently. Jina wasn't popular either...now he's huge!

Quitting smoking is probably the hardest thing to quit doing. At least he's working on it.

That's usually when people start smoking. Usually just to look cool, but then it ends up as a bad habit.

Well I'm a freelance/studio photographer by trade. But these dolls are just one of the many things I like to include into my photography, since so much effort goes into them...I might as well. :D Plus I take commissions because I paint/customize these dolls for other people, so I use my camera to build a portfolio. As for the maintenance of the dolls, they are put together with hooks, string and wires, usually. They need to be restrung after so long, as well as cleaned with gentle materials. They're made out of a heavy duty resin, that can scratch and chip easily, and also YELLOW if not cared for properly. Most of the materials used to paint and customize them are also toxic...so a certain amount of care has to be considered when you handle them, lol. They can be a pain in the butt sometimes.

My photography IS what I do. ;) I do compete when I have time, or my work gets featured in galleries, but I mostly work in a studio or do freelance. The stuff I post on here is just my personal works, usually. But pretty much everything gets put into my portfolio.

hey, hi! love your doll! Where do you get them? and can you ever at all buy them at the store because i probalby cant buy stuff online..
Reply
:iconasainemuri:
asainemuri Featured By Owner Jan 26, 2013  Professional Photographer
Thank you very much. :)
No, you cannot buy them at a regular store. They're artist crafted ball-jointed dolls made in various parts of Asia (Japan, Korea, etc) not mass produced factory dolls. They're also typically sold blank (no face, no hair, no eyes) and naked, as they are meant to be completely customized by their owner. So you won't find one that looks exactly like the owners creation (unless you copy it 100%) -- they also are not your typical doll size. This one is about 60cm tall, and prices range from a few hundred dollars to nearing $2,000 -- they are a lot of work and maintenance, but a very fun and artistic way to bring an OC to life, so to speak. :XD:
