Hum... I think the face needs to be a little more "square" (I don't know a equivalent of this french expression in english QAQ), it could be more masculine. If you look at asian&european men fashion models, I think it could be a good inspiration to take ＼(^ω^)／
get bettter soon!!!
For me is all about the eyes...I am LOVING these eyes on him! In my opinion, this shape makes it more masculine.
You do your thing, express your characters as you think they should be. Eiji will turn out great!
Clever installation for the traffic lights + regular lights :) I've never seen such a construction before.
Nice!, went to the store, I find it a bit confusing, you should try to separate dolls from accessories by default. Have a great AX.
And I shall anticipate your arrival to L.A.
im so glad you are getting better! thanks danny:)
HOW MANY TIMES HAVE I TOLD YOU NOT TO ENTER THE ROOM WHILE I'M CHANGING
Sorry for spamming but I just try to be as helpful as possible. How about getting inspiration from some male BJD ? I think lips definitelly need more definition (even though your smart doll is more anime style than regular BJD). I came across these images:
I think girls would love lips like that...
YES! Congrats Danny!
I want to correct myself. I'd search not only among otome characters but also handsome characters in neutral animes. Actually I see a pretty serious dilema:
Otome characters (especially with pointy chin and feminine features) will be totally loved by female otaku but might turn off many male fans or some 'normal' female fans. Guy from a gender neutral style might look a little bit less 'sexy' for female otaku but might be attractive to males and 'normal' female otakus. Hmm... how about character like Izaya from Durarara. He's pretty popular with girls (according to the merchandise in Akiba). Even though I don't like pointy chins, characters like this are totally fine for me. BTW, smile needs to be completely different. Research otome characters...
Gotta have a mechsuit accessory!
This spot will always for me hold the memory of stepping off the night bus from Matsuyama at 5.30am, bleary eyed, about to take my first journey through Tokyo. Shinjuku was an amazing terminal to arrive at and the experience only got better from there.

Good Luck Danny!!!! Best Wishes dude and keep up the good work! Sympathies too on the back... I have the same. Dont let it get you down...mine is wearing off after 4mths. It comes and goes, but chin-up, there are always folk worse off than us and I remind myself in the crap times just how lucky I really am overall. Lecture over >< Love Peace & Happiness to you and yours :D

So exciting! Gonna start saving for a smart doll!
Excellent stuff Danny Choo but the 3rd sentence should read "We've also got..." or "We also have..."
Congratulations Danny happy to hear
Too cute... I NEED to buy one someday.
awesome ... Everyone gets to have a this joyous one in their life now!
Mirai Suenaga - Kowai version
Hmm... I think the most professional approach would be a serious research of the otome games and otome animes/manga. Then creating a heavy mood board (with tons of references). 3D characters (or figurines) would be best, because you need to see it from all angles. Then carefully select only few best references. Now I'm talking especially about lips and smile. From my experience, random 'I want to create it my way' approach often doesn't work. Mixing various feedback together also doesn't work. Simply, search for the best reference (an incredibly handsome character which is already popular and loved by many) and copy the best (then add your own twist if you want). I would strongly recommend this approach. (Maybe you know all this and I'm sorry if my comment sounds arrogant - wasn't the intent)
As much as I enjoy reading about your life, work, and... world view, I must say that THESE are the posts that keep me coming back to your site again and again.
Congratulations, Choo-san. Have a good time at AX. We hope to be able to visit the store in the coming weeks. Keep posting the details!
Great to see progress on both fronts, congratulations on opening the brick and mortar show space and most importantly, it's really nice to hear you are back on your feet and able to manage the pain!
The composition of this photo is surprisingly good. It serves as a nice HD wallpaper actually.
Congratulations on your very own online store (ﾉ´ヮ´)ﾉ*:･ﾟ✧
I hope it gets stocked with additional merchandise in the future. I'm already tempted to buy a shirt (* >ω<)
Hope your Spinal Hernia stuff recovers further quickly!
Will it be possible to put her on layaway?

Overwhelming vote for the kistune-mimi >ll add one more!
Its the mystery that attracts me. If she has nicely shaped legs you do wonder, what could she be hiding behind those long black stockings?. hmmmmmm....
