BJD: Young B by Maru-Light BJD: Young B by Maru-Light
Don't panic, I didn't repaint Dolly!B. I actually got a duplicate mold some time ago because the Leeke Mihael is one of my favorite molds out there and I was eager to paint another one after painting B. Well, I painted him tonight... and he gave me such grief in the process--things went wrong with his sealer and all sorts of other technical difficulties, he took me twice as long as he should have because I was trying to repair damage as it was happening. :faint: Never a happy time.

But he pulled through. Now initially I just wanted to paint the boy, I didn't know who he was, or who I wanted him to b (haha pun) but after all that happened and all was said and done, I put him together and well... there he was.

For argument's sake, let's call him 'Young B.' This could be B when he first came to Wammy's as a little boy (and he's a small doll too, lol, much smaller than Dolly!B) Or perhaps he's a young B of a whole different nature... ;)

In any event. He nearly killed me tonight. He's earned it.

He figured out who he was ;) His name is Born Beloved.

Faceup & photo by me.

I admire your dedication to the lack of eyebrows that all Wammy kids seem to have :D

Maru-Light Featured By Owner Jan 27, 2011
Thank you :hug: I've been wanting to try some different things with faceups, and the skin texture I think worked out well :) I used to do a lot of painting, drawing and sculpting, etc which sort of carried over to the dolls. I've been painting them since about 2008 I believe. Checking out tutorials in the community and studying the techniques of other artists helped get me started. ^^

hmm. is it airbrushed? cuz ive tried and tried to be able to do something like that and i guess its just not the same as sketching.

Maru-Light Featured By Owner Jan 28, 2011
Some people airbrush, it's something I need to graduate up to. I use chalk pastels and heavily thinned acrylic paint.

Thank you :hug: I've totally fallen for this doll more than I thought I would :love: (He's holding a jar necklace with red beads in it--sort of symbolic of his jam/blood, but I didn't want to use any real jam or blood b/c it might spill and stain him).

You're on a roll! (I love Becoming Beastly :rofl: )

Though I think I've narrowed it down to Beloved Born or Born Beloved... but I'm trying to measure which would be the cooler first name...

Now while you're at it... if Kira happened to have a son doll or something, what would you name him? :XD:

dwn-wt-vwlz Featured By Owner Jan 18, 2011
Probably after an angel of death..... or a mythical god of death...i dunno. or something to do with shadows since hes "light the way" his son could be named after shadows as his foil? it's SO much more difficult finding something for Light's son, because Light would want his sons name to have morem eaning behind it...Maybe it'd be a Japanese name? If it were something with Ichi in it because that means one or something. itd be difficult finding the right one for Light's son. I fhe had a daughter itd be easier. Something from the bible would suffice for her.....
