I do not own Okami. It belongs to Capcom. It is a fanart.

I will not make any tutorials, and I do not have any tutorials about how to make this dolls.

I really have to make one >.< Thing is, whenever I sculpt, i get dust and mini hairs in my clay. no matter how many times I clean my table and my hands, its always there! I also tend to have fingerprints I tend to sand off later. Does this also work for polymer clay? Or just cold porcelain? and I have never made a BJD before, are there any tips you can give me? Thanks for being my inspiration..

Thank you so much!
I already tried to use polymer clay and had the same dust problem. Looks like it is worst than cold porcelain on this aspect.
But I read you can remove it with some kind of alcohol (I don't remember which).
I really don't have tips to help you with polymer clay, I am not used to it XD
Oh! I am really happy that I am an inspiration for you! I am very honored XD Thank you!

Thanks for the info! (sorry for the late reply)
I've been pawing through your work lately, and every now and again I just stare at your work and I'm confused why nobody made a decent Toothless for everyone to buy at the store T.T

I've been so desperate in finding a animal BJD tutorial to make my own, since I don't have enough money to buy one. do you know any video tutorials on YouTube I can watch and make one? I really want to make a wolf and a cat BJD. i heard rubber bands work for the strings and I remember when I put rubber bands on my Goldberg contraption, I left it in my attic for a year, and they all broke. What type of string do you use?
Sorry if I ask too many questions, its just your work looks beyond awesome :3

Oh, people usually make one and sell it. As it is a copyrighted character, people usually don't make it in bigger amounts xD

You can find a lot of BJD tutorials on youtube, but for human dolls. I didn't followed any of them, so you have to watch them and see which one is the best to try.
And then you make adaptations to transform them in animals.
I use rubber strings, the ones that all BJDs uses as well (you can see it better on videos "how to restring BJDs")

Thank you so much! xD

Fair Point. XD
I wish someone will make a animal BJD DX It would be so much easier. I already know you don't make tutorials, but if you can post a photo of the body parts and inside the head and all that, that would be a dream come true T.T

Thanks for replying to all my questions :3

This is something that is very difficult on animal BJDs, the joints, how to assemble, etc.
I took a long time to get something good, and for now I didn't see people making is as efficient as I do.
That is why I don't share. Even because I wouldn't be happy with companies copying me without any credit, you know? =(
But I am sure that with practice you will get there.

I hear you. I make little air dry clay figures, and now, people are stealing my photos online and blurring out my watermark. 

I really need a photo of the inside of each body part. Do you know anyone who makes animal BJDs and would share the photos with me? 
Thanks for some info XD
vonBorowsky Featured By Owner Nov 18, 2014  Hobbyist Artisan Crafter
Yeah, that happens.. sadly =(
I don't, but keep asking others and searching that someone would give it for you =)
