Balance by SoftPoison Balance by SoftPoison
Hii,

I really wanted to make a picture of Monroo where you can see his body. Most of my pics are heagshots so I wanted to try something else :)

Everytime I look at pictures of dolls I get blown away at how alive they look. And that's something I have a little bit trouble with. How do I make my dolls look alive? Do you guys have any tips? How do you make your dolls look alive?

:glomp:

Monroo is a Ball joited doll
He's a Migidoll Cho
It's a boy :)

Head: Migidoll Cho NS
Body: Eluts senior delf body typ 2

Could I use a couple of your pics to show an example of what my characters look like, with a link and your name giving you credit? Thank you in advance, regardless of your response.

I think the trick is to really put your heart into working on the dolls, and smiling when you pose them and take the pictures. :) Just put all your love into them and they appear to be alive when you do.

Yeah I was also suprised XD But it's all thanks to his skinny jeans. They're so tight that his legs can't really move ;)

I absolutely ADORE this shot!! :love: His pose is so realistic! Everything about it is fantastic. I don't think there is anything you could have done better here. The outfit and lighting back it perfect! The position of the camera was spot-on as well, and I love how he is looking upward. It gives it a cool, myterious feel to it. This is one of my all-time favorite BJD shots!

How the hell did you get him to stand like that?! OoO He looks awesome dude!
If I tried to get Damien or Ghost to do that they would fall over. They are no where near that cooperative!!!

He looks incredibly alive.

He's so amazing.. none of my dolls are this flexible. haha.

Hmmm, I don't really have a lot of experience in giving my dolls a life-like feel in pictures.. I'm trying more and more. i find it helps to actually get into the pose you want the doll to do and then see how your body moves and looks in the pose. I.e. If you want to have your doll pose as if s/he is undressing her/himself, then pretend to do it yourself and see what angles your elbows fall at and try and mimic that on your doll. x3
