BJD Azu-nah WIP 3.0 by felineflames BJD Azu-nah WIP 3.0 by felineflames
Large fullview is large.

I've been rather bummed out lately, so I figured I should upload something.

I've been working on this on and off for... ever. I sculpted, I baked, I strung and realized stuff had warped in the oven, I cursed gravity, I re-sculpted, I baked, I re-strung and decided that joints are a stupid invention, I imbibed and cried into my bottle, I re-re-sculpted... And it's finally, finally looking vaguely like a creature! It's been worth the work.

A few notes on this. It's not held together with pipe cleaner. It's actually held together with elastic string. The pipe cleaner is just stuffed into the last chunk there, and represents the prehensile tail. It will eventually be the same color as everything else (once I've bitten the bullet and painted this sumbitch)

Now I have to figure out ears.. and a mane.. crap. D:

Little magnets. :) They are glued inside, one on the cap, one on the head, and they hold it together nicely.

They are called "rare earth magnets," and unfortunately I got mine years ago from an ebay seller that is no longer in business. Try searching for them there, or maybe in Google. :)

Lol, your commentary is awesome. I cannot imagine how hard it would be to make a toy.

It's not as hard as it seems. There's just a lot of trial and error involved for this because it's not like a normal bipedal action figure..

I tend to give a huge amount of credit to people who do well with things I'm weak on: And one of those is patience to give in to the trial and error process and keep working towards something awesome.

lol You wouldn't call me patient if you heard me with this thing sometimes. ;) There was much wailing and gnashing of teeth. XD

he's really cute, are you making to keep or making to sell? I know I would want to save up to get one^^

felineflames Featured By Owner May 31, 2011
Right now he's to keep because I haven't quite figured all of his joints and whatnot out yet. But if I can ever get him finished and cast in resin, I'd love to sell them! :)

I love your gallery, btw. ^_^

Yeesh, sounds like he's really been a lot of work! The result is really really awesome though, both adorable and really cool looking. :) Glad he's finally getting to where you want him.

Thanks Doran! Yes, he's been a lot of work. But that's mostly because I've been figuring the whole thing out via trial and error. It'd have been finished already if I had a clue what I was doing. ;)

The thing I've really been putting off is what colors to paint him. O_o

On the plus side I guess, if you ever want to do this sort of thing again it'll go a lot faster since you've been through the learning process now. :) And you probably wouldn't have learned nearly as much if it had all gone perfect the first time! Even so I'm sorry it's been so much work.

Hehe, painting does seem tricky... there are so many colors and patterns the Azu-nah can come in, how to choose? Will be excited to see whatever you go with!

Pew pew pew! lol Fear Mecha-Azu! :XD:

I curled it up like that so it was really obvious that the tail wasn't holding it up. lol
