I am born by hiritai I am born by hiritai
My sweet Acoe. I was testing her angles on camera, and I think this is my favourite. I just love her so so much.

Anyway, a few pics I took to post before I take my temp leave, just to show Acoe's progress. This is a watercolour faceup, and probably very close to one of the default faceups I will be offering.

As a reminder, if you are interested in Acoe, you can register your interest by joining the mailing list, where you willl be update on all major progess, and have the first go at the first order. hiritai at and if you can, let me know the colour (normal, white, tan) you would be most likey to buy. Again, this is a keen to buy list, not a "I will buy it!" list. It's no obligation, just pure keen interest. I am hoping to accept layaway too, so don't fret, and she will hopefully have more than one order.

I just can't express the pleasure in making something that looks back at you with a sweet little face like hers. I am so proud of her :~;

take care guys!

no brig for the nose that's why its seems creepy to others. but i am envious on how well the lips are done.
hiritai Featured By Owner Aug 18, 2012
Naw, she's got a bridge, it's just very flat XD Harder to see in pictures because her face is so... spacious lol. Lips are easy though, they're my favourite. I've got plenty of tutorial references if you ever need them ^^

do I ever thanks! are they on your deviant?
hiritai Featured By Owner Aug 18, 2012
nope, they're probably in DA somewhere, same sort of thing.
There's this one, and she's just great in general, films a whole lot of her making her BJD: [link]
This is the technique I use mostly: [link] (just go through until you find the mouth)

Tools are pretty essential for lips, I use a nail dotting too and a craft knife. I hope they helped a bit. It's a really fun shape lol, mouths are great to sculpt *-*

I love her so much.

Just curious, where is that wig from? It looks so realistic.
hiritai Featured By Owner Aug 12, 2012
Thankyou so much!! it's not actually a wig yet, it's some angora goat hair I have around. it's gorgeous, and very soft and silky. There used to be a place on etsy that would sell the goat hair on the skin and share the money with the mongolian farmers, who just farmed the goats for their families, and the sale of the hair would buy them new goats. I felt bad because it was on the skin, but at the same time I know the animal at least didn't die for it's skin, and that the family remains well fed. I still feel bad though, but I guess I could do a lot worse. If you aren't into that, Alpaca hair is shawn, and AMAZING. More so than the goat hair. And then there's angora sheep, they're shawn too. It's all on etsy, and you can find some on ebay too.

She is just gorgeous~ I really love her eye shapes, and the delicate face-up on her lips and around her eyes and eyebrows are gorgeus! She has such a cute little nose too. She's just perfect! :love:

I am really loving how she looks so far, especially the eyes. :heart: I might just have to join this list, but then I am afraid I will really want to buy her when she's finished, because so far, she is turning out just so lovely!! :D I can't wait to see more of her as she progresses to be finished!

I try to make a head and looks shitty.

Hitirai makes a head and is perfection.

SalazarPhoto Featured By Owner Aug 9, 2012  Hobbyist Photographer

momyrun Featured By Owner Aug 9, 2012  Hobbyist General Artist
you should be proud of her :) she's beautiful!

i'd have to agree that it is a bit creepy but its still pretty well done for a first attempt. maybe its the shape of the eyes or the fact that the iris' are black in the picture, not sure. At any rate I look forward to watching your progress if you make more, practice makes perfect after all :)
