Rainman Discussion

Sep 24, 2018

    1. Hi, I'm not sure there's the best thread to post this, but what do you think about new Rainman's girl, Blina? I'm not sure she would be sold on Elfdoll, but still, it's at least interesting

      Rainman,sculptor, on Instagram: “#swalina #bjddoll #bjd #head #zbrush #3d #sleeping #Her name is “Blina”Beauty Swalina.”
      OPAl80 on Instagram: “#Blina 드디어 #test#샘플 나왔어요 ^^ 메이크업 이쁘게 해줄게 꽃단장후 만나요 ♡ Come in soon Her name is Blina(beauty swalina)(beauty lina) #SwantjePaulina @swalina…”

      If she's discussed already in some other thread, please point me there :)

    2. :o
      I love Rainman's work and I totally love Blina. I miss Elfdoll so much, and wherever this girl will be sold, I'll be there.

      ... edited to add, I just had a look at his instagram and it appears that she's OOAK. Too friggen bad! :sigh

    3. Hey just dropping in to say about Blina, Rainman has said she will be for sale next month. There will be a faceup option too as he has a faceup artist set up and everything.

      I guess we should probably move this discussion elsewhere though as he'll no longer be selling through Elfdoll and instead through this own website which he has mentioned somewhere on Instagram. I'll see if I can find it.

    4. Maybe it's just about this specific makeup? Because in other places he's answered that he's going to sell her.

      There's some link in his profile: [상품명], but it's mostly about figures.
      Actually, I think it would be better to have a thread related more to the name of the sculptor rather than to the specific shop. Sites may change, but we all love Rainman's work in the first place :)

    5. That'd be great news for me as I usually buy dolls blank anyway. :XD:

      A new thread would probably be good ...

    6. Ah yeah that's the site where he will sell her. The Cafe24 link. I forgot it was there in the front page.

      And yeah maybe it would be but we'd have to start a new thread or ask the mods for permission to change this one or something. I don't know. It's just this is an Elfdoll thread and he's no longer associated with Elfdoll. Which is a shame of course, but I love seeing his new doll sculpts as well as his other sculpting work.

    7. May I ask you to do it? I'm not brave enough for the first post :)

    8. I would totally be happy to. Let me just look up how all that works. I've never done it before. Lol

      EDIT: I wonder if wet have to wait for her to be judged as on topic first though? Anyone know?

    9. WoW, this is awesome news! Am running out the door, but she is gorgeous!

    10. Since Rainman pretty much was Elfdoll, I think keeping this thread would be good. The member who posted the first post on this thread is not active, so we would have to ask the moderators to change the title.
       
    11. I don't think this thread was started by the first poster usually the last post of a last thread is used to start the new thread. Thus I think we need a moderator to change the name.

    12. This thread will run out soon (they usually start a new one after 1000 posts or 50 pages), so maybe we can have the name changed then.

    13. We separated out the posts. :) Knowing Rainman's quality, I don't think there will be any topicality issues, but the mod team will discuss.

    14. @AirimirOfGondor I think what we would like (judging by what everyone seems to be saying) is to put the two threads together so that we can stay a more cohesive group. Maybe call it "Rainman Art Dolls" Or Elfdoll and Rainman dolls, because it's already such a slow thread with Elfdoll having been disbanded such a long time. That would make the thread inclusive and more lively and help it thrive :D Is that possible?

    15. If Rainman is no longer attached to Elfdoll, then this new doll would not be an Elfdoll doll.
      And threads are organized by company, so they would be better separated out.

    16. I'm so glad Blina will be for sale! She's so striking and looks really versatile. Hopefully this marks a comeback for Rainman. He's been one of my favorite sculptors since I joined the hobby. :)

    17. I've been following his Instagram since I discovered he had one. :)
      I'm not gonna lie, I think his miniatures are awesome, but I was always crossing my fingers that he'd make BJDs again! :XD:

    18. She is a very beautiful face, I am also happy she has a sleeping version. I find that I am becoming more in love with the sleeping heads because they look gentle

      Has anyone purchased the figures from him before? I noticed some over seas BJD artists dont accept paypal, so I wanted to know if paypal could be used to buy his beautiful Blina

      I read he will offer her in white and normal, I wonder what companies they will match
