So as mentioned in my 2017 Creator Meme post a while ago I am planning a new character and doll! 🙂 This time I actually got the character of her first (haha yes this is unusual for me) but her doll form will not take much longer to be finished, I’m very happy with this.
Well you could call her creation like that. Her idea came up when I doodled my character re-designs for Tsuyu and Kaede! I tried different kinds of styles and “characters” when she was created with her own type of charm and appearance in my sketchbook. And even when I worked on the other two I came back and defined her more now and then. There was something which really got me stuck on her (in a good way). I created her expressions and keeop on working on her personality. After finishing the re-designs I came back to her a last time to create a new image of her all from the beginning.
Personality is building up
When I did draw her I was thinking who she might be, what does she like, what skills might she have. So the image I already had of her came together as a whole. I had fun and enjoyed this little beginning of her “journey”. In the end she was “finished” (maybe lacking some finishing touches, but there she was), some scribbles and ideas of her character. This experience was (and still is) great. I can understand people a lot more now, who have the character in the first place and let it become “real” in this kind of way! I don’t want to sound dumb but I feel like the bond is stronger with her. I’m sure it is even more overwhelming when you “spend” more time with your character, like from rpg’s or writings!
Seiko’s doll form
So… yes there she was… not planning to make her a doll anytime soon. Until… – I browsed through the internet xD. Not with the intention to buy anything for her. But It happend that I found a very suiting head for her! So the urge to take this chance and let her come home grew within me (haha I know maybe this sounds weird but thats how I felt, and still do!) I was lucky enough to find all the “things” I would need to make her first “debut”! Like what a coincidence as I did not want to have a half finished doll at home for too long and I was motivated! Of course there can be added little things later on or accessoires but that “first” image of her will be complete, her character and appearance!
From this post on it sounds that I finished her and just head off and bought her doll form. But well it is more than 5 month for considering, maybe still short in comparison with other people cases, but I am happy with it and that she can be with me soon. I actually plan taking some first pictures this weekend! 🙂 When the last parts arrive ( I only have the head for now).
