I just wanted to say, my best friend bought me this doll from your etsy and she just arrived today. The photos don't do her justice, she is so amazing! The detail you put into her is just awesome, especially in her masked face and nurse's coat. The suede she's made of is so soft! I wasn't expecting that at all, and I love it. You do some very beautiful work! I hope to buy more plague dolls from you in the near future!
I've decided to name her Sinew, given it's a type of thread and a medical term. I thought it would be quite fitting for a plague nurse doll. I can't get over how beautiful she is. I love her!
I'm SUUUCH a terrible photographer! ;o; I'm so sorry about that!
I'm so happy she arrived to your place safely! (I think I forgot to mark the package as "shipped", haha, oops!) I'm also happy to hear that you're happy with her! And you gave her a name too! Cool! I like that name.
You're photos were great, showed every angle of her! There's just some little details cameras just can't pick up very well. It's like trying to scan traditional art. I just spent forever admiring the paint and details as soon as I got her. She'll have a very wonderful home here! I like my dolls I get to last forever, so take good care of them.
Haha, yeah, those boots I bought originally for something else, but I misjudged the size (that goes for all the doctors with the bjd doll shoes) but thankfully, they're just the right size for my doctor dolls. I'm very happy about that.
The pictures for your plague doctor dolls should probably have been taken in a more even, consistent angle. Ideally, it would have been good to keep the camera at a stationary angle (tripod, stand, etc.) to keep the pictures consistent, but I think I know what you were trying to go for. Just from an advertising standpoint, several even photographic standpoint shots would have been more ideal. I would have made even front, back, side, and 3/4th angle shots and then these nice variation/dynamic angle shots as extras.
Don't worry though, most of your shots from your other dolls are pretty good. Again, I would have just looked more for consistency. I don't think nurses would be allowed to have such over-sized, hanging shoe laces like that though. That just looks like a liability waiting to happen.
Sorry, this is just the kind of stuff you pick up when you have an eccentric business friend like I do. That and it doesn't help I have my own, albeit forced experience with photography. This is probably stuff you know already, but I hope it may help. You're not really do this for a professional setting and you have a great fan base, so it's really not a big deal, anyway. Gosh, got to stop being a little nitpicky about all of the little details. Just got to simply enjoy the pictures/art sometimes.
Otherwise, I really like the asymmetry in this design. I would say something about improving the lighting for this one, but somehow, I feel the duller lighting helps to bring a sullen mood to the nurse design as I would imagine it would be in a hospital setting for certain timelines. I don't know if that was intentional or not. The cabinets having that similar, albeit, duller color is also a nice color palette touch to the picture.
Ugh, well it doesn't seem like I'm fulfilling my shorter comments resolution very well this year. This habit is going to die hard.
Haha, yeah, I probably could have taken better photos. The one at the top left, I wanted the viewer to see the shoes better. But yeah, I'm no photographer, for sure. xD;; I do have a tripod, but I can use some practice.
I know what you mean. Those shoes could be hazardous for operation, yep, yep. The shoe laces would be hard to tie though, if I cut them, so I left them alone. >u>;;
And It's OK! I've always enjoyed reading your giant comments! Though I can't say that I can reply just as large.
