Photos: mostly of ball-jointed Asian dolls (some not quite safe for work), cats, plants; occasionally art; and local Chicagoland scenery. Comments are moderated so they will take a bit to show up.

I'm a big fan of HerrZog's work, and this is why--this doll head is about the size of the palm of your hand, and look at the incredibly delicate patterns painted around the eyes. The skin is "bronze" and when Soom released it I was curious how easy or difficult it would be to paint on it (and have it look nice). It looks very nice. Vesuvia is a beautiful sculpt to start with, but HerrZog also chose amazing eyes to go with the red wig and the bronze skin. Even the eyelashes are carefully selected to go with the rest of the painting.
I decided to rehost the image rather than link directly--it's always a question of which is more polite, taking bandwidth or lifting images :o
