Hello everyone! Back when I first got interested in BJD, I was trying to find another way to help me draw and visualize poses and anatomy for drawing characters. The use of a BJD, or any doll really has always intrigued me. I have been an artist for as long as I can remember, I know the best way to study anatomy especially is to draw it from life and real people. I have read the books, I have had the drawing mannequins. But still I find drawing the humanoid figure to be very difficult. My problem that I had with the drawing mannequins was the level of detail. I have no problems getting the basic shapes down, but to jump from that into a fully fleshed character, is near impossible for me. That is where I find that dolls helps. Now I know every sculpt is different and you can't copy the image exactly of course. But just to see the figure in a 3D space and being able to pose and move them into a pose is so helpful. I don't yet have my own BJD. I hope to have one soon. But I am looking for a good sculpt that fits my idea of the figure I would like to draw. (If that makes sense) In the end I'm curious to know if any of you use your dolls for the same? Also I'd like to know how you feel it has improved your art?
