However, I didn't stop there. I continued to search for someone who can tell or teach me more about toy design and lucky enough I found my mentor, Emen Chen who taught me bear making and eventually I picked up this art and enjoy making them till now. I am glad that I am still doing what I like and fulfilled my dream =) But lately, my doll making urge is calling for me again... I am not sure if I should give it a try again.
To start, I have to understand how the BJD mechanism and joints work, hence I purchased a naked Hujoo Doll, a pair of glass eyes and eye putty from Ebay. It's really affordable, costing me less than 50USD in total. As a product designer, I am specialise in designing furniture, electronic and life style products, a dollie figure seems to be much more easier for an art student to handle. (I gotta find a way to figure this out!) Anyway, I plan to explore and learn to remake dolls. (One of the project for year 2012) If I never try, I'm going to regret and never know if this is meant for me.
I CAN DO IT!!! GOGOGO!!!
