Dark Child by Maru-Light Dark Child by Maru-Light
Born Beloved got a new shirt. It made him happy and he started twirling around the floor. I really do adore this boy :love:

Born is a Leeke Mihael painted and styled by me :)
He's an Asian Ball Joint Doll for anyone who doesn't know.

They're Asian Ball Joint Dolls. There are plenty of companies that make them & you can buy them on ebay. This particular mold comes from a company called Leekeworld. [link] (He's custom painted and styled, they all are, no two dolls are exactly alike ^^) Hope that helps.

OOO I like the angle this was shot at, and the little bit of effects you have done to make the picture pop!





If your interested, I make custom items and accessories via 3D printing, if not, just know that your doll is gorgeous. [link]

Thank you dear! :hug: I nicked the shirt off ebay, I actually wanted to grunge it up a bit, but then I found one on the mp that was already like that... so he's got that one on the way too LOL Red and white stripes seem to be his thing LOL

Maru-Light Featured By Owner Jan 28, 2011
LOL :XD: Funny how that works ^^

I've always wanted to produce nice photos, but Anda just recently started studying photography for a degree, so we've seriously been trying to up our game these past few months, mostly with cosplay shots but I want to work on doll photography more. I've been picking up some tricks through her and just really trying. I want to keep improving. :)

It's something I've always wanted to do with my dolls (when any of them are complete >.>) but I've got absolutely no idea where to start, it blows my mind haha :XD:

Any books or tutorials you'd recommend? Did you teach yourself?

I kind of gumped my way through it initially, but now I'm trying to pay more attention to what I'm doing. There's actually a helpful bunch of threads on Den of Angels dealing with the how-tos and tricks and techniques of doll photography. Different uses of lighting, cameras, outdoor vs indoor etc. There's also a group here on DA that deals predominantly with photography and technique: :iconresin-aperture:

Also, did I see the word hybrid? :phonecall: Which body are you using? My Mihai's body is the worst I've ever owned (It's a Leeke. Restringing/wiring/sueding is futile :paranoid:)
