merci la vie!
029 (1)soooo I've been toying around.. minicarta.gif

..with my dollmaker ideas!! I don't think there are quite enough pixel webdoll makers that are animesque gif5.gif gaiaonline and otaku avatar maker are the two that come to mind.. many modern-day makers like everskies are amazing, but with a majority realistic-leaning faces (which are beautiful, but lesser my taste and I'm always digging for user-made anime ones instead xP). 

candybar and neowiz are great examples of what I envision (that're unfortunately getting more lost to time).. >_< that being said, I've made a guideline of what I find valuable in them from example! 173.gif173.gif

most importantly: it's cute bullet_heartflash.gif

now that I have a pretty confident idea of the approach I'd like for the base, I'm still studying the type of site format I'd like to do ^ 3 ^ 

I think these kinds of layouts follows design principals nicely, making both the categories easily accessible at the top and displaying enough items per page so it doesn't feel like a slog to go through them all. criez.gif

as an aside this gal's channel is so cool LOL luv that they play stuff like houchou shoujo gensoukyoku randomly

just for fun and because it's relevant, I thought it'd be neat to share a very casual pitch I made for my friend a few years ago *_* she develops ai filters on instagram; it's something purely for fun but if you ever see it float around somewhere someday, here's some initial concepts LOL tumblr_lkl6570jn71qfamg6.giftumblr_lkl6570jn71qfamg6.giftumblr_lkl6570jn71qfamg6.gif

something very important to me is to make things as customizable as possible within reason.. I think palette swapping is such a convenient and fast way to mix things up considering how quickly programs allow you to do it nowadays!! in the above example, skintone has no excuse to be limited by anything but space or effort restrictions tumblr_lkl6d5i9qD1qfamg6.png

basically u make a pixel doll based on yourself via the filter.. it's amazing how interactive they are these days o.O

websites with HTML-customizable areas to display various widgets like pixels are few and far between nowadays, but I still think there is something I like about people creating what they want and saving it into their image rolls forever! I still have my old ones from 2007 in my photobucket.. mini002.gifmini002.gif

these are all old AWOLnow friends LOL I made dolls based on them.. yes even Ichigo (only 4 ppl will.. understand.. >_> u know who u are)

and who knows.. maybe someday websites will let its users have some visual fun again and let them customize more freely (ie. myspace, tumblr profiles, forum signatures). :-D that's something I sure can look forward to!! gif5.gifmini051.gif

before I begin.... tumblr_ll7xq8CAsh1qi6qow540.gif

new custom girl I picked up from a new artist.. !! 
I'll share pictures soon, she's my first middie blythe ^o^ 
her name is waffle (smiley waffle is her base). laco.giflaco.giflaco.giflaco.gif



it's been awhile YA but I've been itching to log some progress on my new blythe project LOL

so I am technically "skipping a number"! my second blythe project was a bit too ambitious for my skill level KDFSKJSFD.. I think I needed a bit more practice and studying on facial depth before trying my first open mouth doll! tumblr_2b7374f0a0c58df81ef5f97c3deee5fa_dbf816c6_75.gif oopz

but I was humbled at least AHAHA

I think her face photographed cutely, but I couldn't unsee how odd her nose and mouth looked when REALLY observing.. tumblr_lkl654nE1A1qfamg6.gif

I'd like recycle her face plate in the future when I have more practice xP not.. anytime soon-- gif5.gif *is dramatic*

anyway HERE is my new child's inspiration pinterest board! I am specifically extremely inspired by the cute pouty faces of romidoll, one of my favorite customizers. (I hope to own a baby from her someday)........ mini012.gifmini012.gifmini012.gifmini012.gif

not quite there yet, but so far so good >_> tumblr_m3xtm3BvH51rodiav540.gif


she's meant to be an alternative occultist witch apprentice who loves stones and gems (kinda inspired by the rubrubbing in hamham heartbreak LOL).. I am deeply inspired by an old eroge character named lilith! as well as various 2000s illustrations (eroge and oc).

how awesome is this tattoo.. lilith is to the left btw- to the right is nekokinryouku tumblr_9f64623492c6caaeb4e6bf821c2ce2b1_6a1355b1_75.giftumblr_9f64623492c6caaeb4e6bf821c2ce2b1_6a1355b1_75.gif

I think this is the most proficient job I've done so far... (ノ∇≦*) mini051.gifmini051.gif I think she still has a way's to go but I've improved when it comes to determining the relationship between the cheeks/philtrum/chin..

in my first two doll attempts; my soft pastel shading was not very great because of how flat their faces were. I've only been doing test color washes on maliceson, and immediately see how much nicer it looks!!

I thank the creators of popcorn and mao, because I am now able to study physical references.. tumblr_ll7xq8CAsh1qi6qow540.gif it will only get better from here W00T

maliceson's original form.. she is wearing this special outfitI love this creators fantasy-esque work tumblr_b2ca2c7e530ef6fa0562c9241ba755fd_134095e1_75.gif

(not my pic).. I considered buying the white one initially, but I wanted a more classic witch motif!! black and purple is also a good color scheme LOL

lastly, a song that describes her "feeling".. I have two this time! initially I thought shoegaze/alt rock, but it feels too predictable with her casual outfit.. I feel like an industrial type of electronic is more fitting tumblr_lkl65c58Ps1qfamg6540.gif




this has nothing to do w/ my blythe but I doodled my underworld babies randomly and I don't know wut other context I'd share it in so.. Yah tumblr_inline_p6m7snZdrp1rhwzwl_540.gif



one of my resolutions this year is to resume planning personal projects *_* I decided my blog would be a good idea to share initial plans without feeling like a spectacle LOL tumblr_lkl654nE1A1qfamg6.giftumblr_lkl64v9iji1qfamg6.pngtumblr_lkl65c58Ps1qfamg6540.gif

no promises but this IS indeed the year I'd like to make progress on these roadmaps....... I have so little time lately on top of commercial projects BUT I want to try to MAKE time !!

that being said let me break things down a little.. tumblr_ll7xq8CAsh1qi6qow540.giftumblr_b2ca2c7e530ef6fa0562c9241ba755fd_134095e1_75.gif

PROJECT GLIM&GLAM laco.gifmini012.giflaco.gifmini012.giflaco.gifmini012.giflaco.gif


a web-based dressup/avatar game!! I've been studying the likes of existing dollmaker codes online and feel a bit more equipped to know where to start :-D it's gonna take a LOT of trial and error, especially considering web/mobile compatibility.. glim & glam are actually from another project of mine "Salon Glim & Glam" centric around my reaper child Ginnie.. anyway the sister duo will be serving as mascots for this project :-D they are deceased in my other project (k I know it sounds really grim but ITS NOT THAT DEEP or relevant here)-- that being said these are their "living" forms before they passed away!

hmmm (3)

currently I'm trying to develop a cute but cohesive UI based on some childhood inspirations of mine..

how to hit the perfect balance of cute and functional.. these sites did it well imo ^p^ mini051.gifmini051.gifmini051.gif

the standard of web design has gotten a lot more uninteresting in pursuit of a "standardized" look, so I'm trying to find ways to undo the strictness and make something fun!!! minidog.gif

NIBIRU LANDING tumblr_lkl654nE1A1qfamg6.giftumblr_lkl654nE1A1qfamg6.giftumblr_lkl654nE1A1qfamg6.giftumblr_lkl654nE1A1qfamg6.giftumblr_lkl654nE1A1qfamg6.giftumblr_lkl654nE1A1qfamg6.gif

after figuring out the general gist of this game, I'm finally starting to figure out a graphical style I'd like to go for!! I'm very keen on having default, nicely animated pixel sprites (wips below) in an environment that is psuedo 2D-3D..

essentially, I would like a 3D plane to move on, with 2D assets for the environment :-D hoshi de hakken!! tamagotchi for ps1 demonstrates it perfectly (and I'm sure by extension, paper mario LOL but I prefer the stricter camera of the latter)

just observe how mikachu moves and the world around her passes her by!!

if the poster looks familiar I was just mashing roommania into this mockup LOLZ

I'm not sure if I've ever noted a summary behind these characters, but they are basically a weird little family LOL; you control carefree rhaz (the child), you have an angry tech-obsessed older sister named nero, and ma & pa are busy scientist/engineer parents who try their best, but fall short a lot. she becomes best friends with an alien kiddo and works together to collect trash for her parent's current project, while hiding their identity.

it's something personal to my experiences and isn't meant to be serious !! I'm drawing a lot of inspiration from moon rpg's strange but charming dialogue, as well as hamtaro game's lighthearted dialogue ^o^ tumblr_9f64623492c6caaeb4e6bf821c2ce2b1_6a1355b1_75.gif

speaking of hamtaro.. I replayed heartbreak !! I haven't had much free time to animate for myself, but here's a wip!
