    Asamiís diary. Master Mold of the resin dolls. InspireDoll

    Hello!
    I am Marina. Together with my sister, we have been creating porcelain ball-jointed Dolls under the brand InspireDoll. I am the author of the Dolls. But now we have decided to start producing resin dolls too.

    The first project will be creating a young girl (12-15 years old). We have chosen that ages because it is the border between childhood and adulthood when you still have the ability to see the magic world and at the same time intuitive grasp it. We really like thoughtful and enigmatic looksÖ dreaminess and a little melancholy

    As I am good at 3d modeling we decided to create master mold on the computer. I am using 3dmax and recently have started studying ZBrush. Firstly I have created a form of the head and the face. Next step is to make a lid and slots.
    The Doll will be 25 cm tall with a standard set of ball joints.

    We have decided to share the whole process of creation. Hope it will be interesting)

    Interesting! I have heard that other doll companies are turning to computer modeling as well, seems to be a wave for the future (for those who can learn 3d rendering)

    I've always wondered if Popovy used computer scanning/modeling technology especially for their ankle joints.

    Good luck on your project!

    Thank you for the feedback)
    Yes, 3D modeling is becoming more popular as the numbers of the specialists are growing and the material and equipment are becoming cheaper. Also, it helps to work faster and qualitatively)
    But without abilities modeling something with hands it is still hard to create something on computer ))
    I think a lot of dollís masters have started using 3D technology (at least for accessories, or to polish up the handmade prototype), but not a lot of them are telling about it ))

    Thank you) I hope it will be interesting to follow our project.

    Asami's body

    I continue to create Asami)
    I have been thinking about the proportions of the body) Created a hip ball joint. It was a little hard, as I was creating such one for the first time))
    Now I am considering how to cut the body in the best way, to keep the aesthetic appearance.

    Thanks for sharing, it will be interesting to watch your progress. I wish I had time to add 3D modelling to my skill list, seriously not enough hours in the day or years left in my life!

    Thank you for watching!!!) Totally agree!!! There is so much to know, to learn, to create, and there is so much energy right now but the time is limited...

    Yes, 3d modeling is not easy at all! My aunt and uncle were animators- and they switched to 3d modeling ages ago to design various cartoon characters (and toys)- but now it is easier for regular people to use it too- and the ability to get your stuff printed is now much easier too (not quite cheap but maybe one day)

    I think it will help the creative process. I seem to recall that even Mr. Tonner is even moving in that direction- the doll industry is definitely changing! I wouldn't be surprised if Marina had started tinkering with AutoCad

    I hope you are going to design some cool accessories too!

    Wow, animators!! It is so wonderful!!) I love the animation industry so much!)
    Even Japanese anime producing companies are switching to 3d technology) Yes it is definitely the future. It is really interesting to watch the process. It is great to see it is becoming a trend in Doll's industry too! Hope some day 3D printing becomes cheaper.. )
    Yes, we are definitely thinking about the accessories) First of all - shoes)) The most necessary thing)) All these are new for us too, so we will do our best to create something interesting )
    Thank you for supporting )
