I accidentally this.


Mostly made to test some ideas about joints. Somehow, it manages to stand. Even holds some weird poses. Surprisingly stable for its amount of articulation points :XD:
Now I'm even more sure that beadwork isn't meant for this sort of thing. Really not.
Also I obviously didn't bother with the proportions and anatomy much.
Knees don't bend the wrong way? Good enough.
Sorry.

Leave jointed dolls to plastic and clays. They do it much better :rofl:


* Process shots: sta.sh/220r4jngvxl3 when I have time, I'll do something about them. Maybe.


22 cm (~8.6 inches) tall.
Joints: head, waist, legs (3 - hip, knee, ankle), arms (8 - shoulder, elbow, wrists , 1 in each finger)


Main bead colours (Toho 11) - 2208, 2110, 2112, 901, 49f,  white and metallic brown.
Eyes are white Czech "piggy beads", pupils drawn with nail polish.
Some twin (or was it superduo?) used for finger joints.
Other materials include plastic filling, wooden and plastic beads, wire and chopsticks.

If you want to see a bigger image - download.

Oh, look, something that's not a dragon. Lol.

This is amazing!  And I don't care if plastic/clay does joints better, this is still awesome!  Can't imagine the work you put into this!  :D

Wow!! I think you shouldn't stop experimenting with these! It's awesome! People would be into it! ( well at least I am, I just couldn't afford it to buy.. ) :)

I can't even begin to fathom the time this took you, amazing job!  It makes me sad that it probably wouldn't be time effective to produce many of these considering what time is worth vs what people would pay.  But to me, it's priceless.  Frontier art right here.  :iconbravoplz:

His(or her?) eyes are a bit too big and I don't remember Khajiits having tails like that, so most likely not a Khajiit.=(

Still awesome though.=)

Was made to test some joint ideas, so I didn't intend it to be anything specific =)

Rrkra Featured By Owner Mar 19, 2014
Heh, I'm not quitting=D
It's much better than my previous attempts, but there has to be a way to allow for a larger range of movement...  
Too bad beads behave more like fabric, so standard bjd joint types won't work as good=/
Maybe magnets will help... *stares at neocube*

vonBorowsky Featured By Owner Mar 19, 2014  Hobbyist Artisan Crafter
It doesn't need to have an awesome poseability, but the fact it has some and is made of beads is already very cool!
but yes, maybe magnets can be a good try =)

:D I so wish you would live near to me, so you could teach me some of your awesome beading skills.
Its amazing how all you folks from the east what was still russia when I grew up, be it russia now, ukraine, estonia or so, seem to have an incredible talent for artisan crafts.
I run a deity group on fb and all the russian speaking ladies (well they use the kyrillic lettering so for me it looks russian) make the most awesome deity outfits!!!
and you make such awesome beaded stuff that I get envious of your skills each time and wish I would be at least half as good!!

Haha, yeah, most people I know here do some sort of a craft. Any gender, any age - almost sure to do something craftsy, at least occasionally.
I get that feeling when I see drawings/paintings "Wish I could draw as good". Then I sketch something, look at it and say "Well, I tried". :XD:

:D souinds familar. I can't paint 90% of the time, but occasionally get something goo. but I am getting better at manips, beading I like to do bracelets, but such highly complicated figures as you do? I dont even get bthe hang of increasing and decreasing.. no way. sometimes I see beautiful peyote bracelets where the flowers come out of the sides, and I don't have a clu how to do that

It's fun trying, even if the result isn't a masterpiece =D
With those bracelets, I think they just brick-stitch the extra petals afterwards.

still amazing what you were able to do with beads here. though creatures with scales fit the medium better because the beads look more like scales than fur here :)

Rrkra Featured By Owner Mar 16, 2014
Sadly, they haven't invented beads that look like fur... yet... At least I haven't seen any XD
But yeah, beads do look like scales - that's why I like making reptiles =)

*сидит. В шоке*
Я тебя укушу, если не выложишь технологические снимки... Это... Это очешуенно!
*разглядывает пальцы*
Это гениально!
Твин там реально настолько в тему, что я просто... Почему я не думала об этом раньше?!
А на пятках ног - ты просто заплела кусочек, прикрывающий бусину? В целях стопора, как я понимаю?
А в туловище тоже бусина? Не пойму, как получается боковой наклон?
Оплетка бусин в плечах и бедрах не мешает подвижности? Или тоже получается фиксатор?
Да, я наглое создание... ^_^'

Rrkra Featured By Owner Mar 16, 2014
Снимки будут, только их надо сначала в порядок привести, и накорябать хоть какое-то описание (или смотреть и думать - вот чойта я там делала, и зачем?).
Аха, твин в тему пришёлся, удачная у него форма. Только подумала пальцы подвижные сделать - взгляд на баночку с твином и упал. Я бы по три фаланги сделала, но тогда уже не лапа получалась, а паук.

Что там на пятках, где? 
На фото процесса виднее будет, наверное. Голова, тело, плечи и бёдра - это один и тот же принцип. Оплётка бусин в плечах и бёдрах - единственное, что удерживает руки и ноги, а уж подвижность - как получилась :XD: 

Может, хоть теперь успокоюсь с этими шарнирками =D
