  • Elric's black dragon armor (FanArt Critique?) Work in Progress

    My main question is: "What do you think?"

    I am curious on your critique and any suggestions you may have.

    I have been working this armor project for a long while, it fits a Ball-jointed doll, that I painted as Elric.
    The armor's design is based off of several Anime/Manga and video game references. The Torso parts are supposed to look like a dragon's face, with it's mouth open. The lower part of the armor is not yet finished so it is incomplete.

    Stormbringer is currently in works, I have been thinking of way on how to make him a in-scale large dragon for him to ride.(As per to his demands)

    I have a few in progress photos of the parts that are done.

            Calling Elric a common-mass produced "Barbie" is very close to blasphemy.

            This doll is called a "Ball Jointed Doll" or some might know it as "Asian Balljointed doll"
            They are cast in polyurethane resin, a hard, dense plastic, and the parts strung together with a thick elastic.

            Here is the Wiki-information on these types of dolls

              I was highly impressed from your original post when you introduced us to your work. Great stuff! Hopefully you aren't offended.

                Thank you, no I'm not offended, I knew the barbie comment was made in jest. It was my knee-jerk reaction to anything relating to Barbie.

                Not many people might not know what a BJD is So I included the wiki-link.

                Yes big dolls are kinda creepy, and there is a sort of social stigma attached to collecting them, but I prefer to think of my Elric as my really big, expensive action figure. (he's got more then 15 points of articulation.)
                I really enjoy putting him together and I think that I'll work on more props for him in the future, I love my hobby.
                It's kinda wicked-cool to have him sitting in my room reading my books. he's the Centerpiece to my Eternal Champions book collection.

                I've got Corum in the works but it will be awhile before I can unveil him

                  Ball-jointed Doll, I will keep that in mind for future reference.

                  Please do not let my ignorance distract anyone from ElysionGear's masterful work.
