I think she's too dark Danny :(
I think most people would be happier with something more average like
A lot of black anime characters use this kind of skin tone.
The dark skin you have is very extreme and the face-up looks a bit lost and I feel that she'll be hard to photograph kind like the DD white skin which I didn't really like either.
I feel like the people that are interested in a very dark skin would still be interested in the lighter skin but it wouldn't be the case the other way. I suppose ideally you could maybe release this skin tone later on?
Seriously though, I disagree with some of the people here, I think his girlish figure is fine. For licensed characters/inspiration I think Touken Ranbu would be one of your better choices right now.
Just my 2 cents, but I think a new make up color scheme should be used on Harmony's face up, as it is not adapted to her vinyl color. It's the same with resin dolls, dark colors tend to "eat" the makeup, so you need a light base for it.
I like her look. The hair isn't quite right though. It seems too thin and smooth. While I know that effect can be achieved in styling, I'm thinking something more natural with a bit of curl would achieve a more real result. As for the eyes, amber or hazel. Something that pops but seems very natural and alluring. She looks good. I rarely see dolls with darker skin tones like this.
I think he looks great, & could look more masculine with some looser fit clothing that doesn't hug his pecs and arms so tightly, if ppl want him to look more masculine, but guys have all kinds of styles, nothing wrong with androgyn or feminine guys :)
Or my favorite non yaoi couple that is hard to find a non yaoi image, Heiwajima Shizuo and Orihara Izaya http://images4.fanpop.com/image/photos/19100000/Shizuo-and-Izaya-anime-guys-19102468-1380-2000.jpg
I like, tough, more Makoto Tachibana from FREE http://img1.wikia.nocookie.net/__cb20140710182903/free-anime/es/images/3/30/Makoto_Tachibana_anime.png
I think Haruka Nanase from "FREE!" looks a bit like him, he has a kind of bored, melancholic expression in his eyes https://s-media-cache-ak0.pinimg.com/736x/69/fe/52/69fe52f4bc6dbf3d30e8305bbeada1f3.jpg
He's coming along great, Danny! Like many others are sure to say, Free is a good anime to look to for torso design. Ed from Fullmetal Alchemist works too.
SHIROE FROM LOG HORIZON
The whole gang's here!!
Very Cute! I love the way she is turning out. The short hair is also a very good idea!
"Here's looking at you kid !"
I thought the skin colour would be a tad bit warmer, but still looking great!
She is GORGEOUS!
I like the last boy very much... bigger , more serious eyes.. hair a little longer and wilder. Not so perfect is a little more exciting.. :) Hope this helps.. <3
She's very pretty! (They all are haha) But I'd say lighter eyes (amber maybe) would be very lovely with her as the dark ones while gorgeous, feel too dark. But awesome job!
How about Izumi Tsubaki's male character designs? They are shoujo-ish yet still handsome and manly at the same time, it will be perfect for a doll, I think
I prefer more broody or serious dudes. Happy all the time is annoying. I think you should take inspiration from the dramatical murder characters because they have really beautiful and unique design without being too out there.
Maybe you should look at "Free!" characters to take inspiration ? :3
he looks like a girl..:D
but he's also really cute..
Suna from Ore Monogatari, Eiji sounds so simmilar to him!
Looking great Danny! Working hard on the Eiji developer project over here . I hope to get the product out to your studio in the next couple of weeks! Can't wait to see what it will look like on the final body.
you can but difficult to dry inside the joints ><
I think he looks nice. Like a young teen. But I think the clothes you're putting him are too fitted and are giving him a more 'girlish' effect. I think he needs clothes that are very boy-like and stands out differently from your female dolls. I could imagine any of your girl dolls wearing what he's wearing right now. How about a button up shirt with a sports jacket? Or a button up shirt tucked into a pair of slacks with a loosened tie at the collar? Maybe a hoodie and t-shirt. I think he just needs clothes your girls would never be caught wearing. LOL
Why can't she go in the water? ;^; I wanted to take pictures of her in a pool....
IT'S A BABY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
shaniqua needs that weave
I like guy dolls with that cold anime look, like the specxy guy from Terror In resonance.
A mohair wig would look beautiful on her - also some lovely brown or Amber colored eyes - swoooon
I think Touken Ranbu characters (online game) has pretty good art and such! For eyes and facial expressions! This is Mikazuki Munechika, one of the swords(characters) There are many more with different styles. ^^
He looks great!
I have been thinking about trying to make Xanxus (Katekyo Hitman Reborn) when the tan/ebony version of Eiji becomes available. But if you manage to make Dante I might have to get that one as well since he is one of my favourite characters.
The chest, torso area look a bit girlish together with the slim waist, it makes him look like he has boobs :/
just my opinion but the face is a bit too pretty? his eyes are too big...
Will you make a buffer option part danny??
Amei esse menino
I like his mouth, but agree that he has too much eye make-up. Have you considered using even lighter brown maybe?
