Ah Lan, how much I love him ;3;

He may not be comfortable with his scars and the reasons behind them, but I think they just make him more beautiful.

Lan is a CP Delf LuWen on an FD bod.
scarring all done by me.

Gorgeous <3 I love this shot. It looks so natural and kinda sad, like he's hiding his face instead of the scars.

Can I ask how you did these? I take it they're raised instead of carved? It looks so effective <3

Wow. This is a stunning shot - the burn scars are insanely realistic, and the smoke off the cigarette (did you use real smoke of some kind, or is that a brush?) makes it all the more real.

Awesome.

Daaannngg. There's a lot more to this shot than meets the eye at first glance, and those are the sorts of photos that I LOVE. Perhaps it's a bit forward, but would you ever consider creating a tutorial for burn scars? My next doll will have quite a few, and these are possibly the most realistic I've seen yet!

Geh, I keep coming back to his pitted, mangled fingers. They are so. SO. Expressive and beautiful. <3!

;3; thankyou so much, I'm happy you like them.

Tutorials aren't something I'd be real good at [that and I have a commission service doing this sort of thing -hah] mainly because when I do things, I just sort of do them and wouldn't know where to begin in explaining D:

He's got burn scars, doesn't he? It seems powerfully sad to me to see his burned hands with a cigarette in them. It's a very lonesome picture somehow. (Then again I think scars are lovely when they tell a story.) ;3

Yes, burn scars ^^ He's an involuntary fire elemental that's had alot of control issues with his abilities, he's never been happy for the result u_u

Saw this on LJ first, but decided to come comment here.

I was going to question why someone with such intensive burn scars was still smoking/playing with lighters, until I saw the pyromaniac description.

As always the scarring is lovely and the smoke effect is incredibly realistic, something you don't see that often.

^_^ being a fire elemental, he doesn't need to bother with lighters or flames from outside sources. And losses of control years back didn't stop a smoking habit he's had for over 50 years -heh.

Thankyou so much. The smoke is just a brush I found a long while back in PS, I think it's supposed to be mist [there are a few of them] but it's always worked perfectly for these. I'd leave the picture blank if I couldn't get it to look even remotely realistic ^^

Still always amazes me the amount of detail you put into your dolls and photography. Sadly I don't have that kind of drive towards dolls any more.

Actually, the amount of detail and work you put in to anything is down right amazing, and awe worthy. I know you probably get fangirly crap all the time but I do aspire to one day be as good at detail one day as you are now, in at least one feild XD

Much love for Lan from over here ^__^ His physical doll scars always match so perfectly to the way I see him in my head and they really are gorgeous to look at because they're him.

Sashi is in total agreement and in his eyes, Lan always looks so beautiful. <3

Yes, I completely agree. I've always just seen the scarring as a part of him, it's hard to imagine a time where he didn't have them actually.

Lan: *smiles warmly*

This is an awesome picture Nezu, the cigarette just tops it off, it really feels like there's much more to interpret from it, if that makes any sense. XD
Your scarring work is fantastic as always, very realistic. :D
