Can’t wait!

I am loving this one! Don’t like this version, had to look at the blank version which changed my mind :smiling_face_with_three_hearts:

I agree, it’s the blank version compared to this that might make me actually consider him

Yeah, all I can see on this prototype is hair from the nose up like a little werewolf.

I don’t care for the prototype but OMG the video of his photo shoot just confirms what a cutie this little one is.

The sculpt looks alright, but it’s too bad that it didn’t capture the smiles he had during the photo shoot.

The painting style of the prototype really isn’t my thing, but the blank kit looks adorable!

My first thought werewolf look. I don’t care for this artists style at all.The sculpt looks cute though.

LOL I was wishing that didn’t show. I often use a doll to test out my lighting before adding the real baby to the setup. The real baby doesn’t have as much patience as the doll does, so I let them cuddle with mommy while I get things right for them. :wink: I get so focused on the real baby that I don’t really pose the doll when I remove it from the setup, so that’s how that happened, lol. If I had used a reborned baby, I definitely would have taken better care though. :wink: I usually use a blank but assembled kit for this purpose.

Sincerely,
Jessica

I do the same thing :wink: and it usually ends up in pretty much the same position :smiling_face_with_three_hearts:

Not a fan of that prototype either but I’m loving the blank kit. The little bend in the wrist and it looks like his face is slightly tipped up which makes me think he will be a good poser/cuddler

It’s actually quite endearing and it shows how versatile the kits are! Great for photographers practicing lighting :wink:
