Life is hard!

Scouring the net for hot men of all races sure is exhausting. Poor me!

I'm sure you're wondering why the vampire is taking so long. I've been busy doing some design work for a local hockey product company. As I'm sure you know, here in Canada hockey makes up 87% of the GDP.

But I have a bit of free time, so as you can see, I'm working on the vampire again.
Done: body, skin, face shapes (yes, multiple!), facial features 1/2 done
Still left: hair, clothes, backgrounds, extras

Hang in there!

In other news: I've finished adding the Print function to almost all dolls!

Beginning of a Doll

I'm starting on the vampire, and if you haven't heard, it's a boy!

I'm trying to put more time into the planning of dolls... trying to decide on the stylistic theme, color palette, etc. I've probably watched too much Project Runway and now I fantasize that I'm putting together my own "collection", hehe. (I've watched all the American, Canadian and British seasons)

I'm really finding it hard to stomach the cliche Dracula cape. It just doesn't ooze sex-appeal. I want this doll to embody sex-appeal and I suspect my fans feel the same. Got a lot to think about here...

The Centaur Maker is finally done, so be sure to check that out.

By far the most common type of e-mail I receive are requests. I think that's great, so keep 'em coming. E-mail me with all your doll ideas!

I don't always go by requests, but usually they're things I was considering anyway, so it's nice to know they'll be well received. Right now the most requested doll is "Vampire". I'm sure it has to do with a little something called "Twilight". However, for me, it was "Interview with the Vampire" that really romanticized the lifestyle. Either way, that's the doll I'm starting now.

Fun Fact: Belief in vampires probably started because of the look of a decaying body. The decomposition caused gaseous build-up and bloating. Blood would seep out of the mouth while the skin became more rusty colored. So, especially if the person was pale and slender in real-life, their exhumed body would appear more well-fed. The seeping blood and rusty color implied the corpse is feeding on blood. (from Wikipedia)

Top Requests Right Now:
1. Vampire
2. Angel
3. Witch
4. Greek Goddess
5. Spirit of the Elements
