Picked up this sculpt yesterday and realized I absolutely hate its thighs. So I ended up cutting a good amount of its lower extremities off and re built bits. I think it looks better now. Completely different joint system. She isn’t as flexible as she originally was but then again I feel like it isn’t as choppy so I’m not complaining.

I’ve also come to accept that if I want double jointed knees that work I have to be willing to accept that when bent it might be a bit boxy. I know how to sculpt knees that don’t look as sharp bent but just aren’t very functional when she stands. They seem to buckle because of her weight she isn’t even that heavy so it really doesn’t make sense. I’ll keep experimenting though.

She is looking wonderful! I love her shape!

Thank You. I’ still tweaking bits and trying to make her symmetrical but i love her shape too.

Ok so I will never be happy until I sculpt my double jointed knees so I didn’t even attempt single jointed knees like I said I would. So far it looks good… but do they work?

So spent some time on this tonight. Again I was mostly carving away at parts that didn’t quite look right. Soooo rough at the moment but once I sand it things will improve. Lol she poses pretty well so I’m happy with the direction of this sculpt.

So in love with this dolls silhouette. Some lines are still a bit too sharp for me but hopefully when I sand it things will soften up a bit. I think the upper arm might be too long. Its an easy fix though.  Almost done balancing her but I still wont be able to tell untill I test string her with feet.

I haven’t given up on double jointed knees but rather than just stay stuck I decided to sculpt single jointed knees and keep moving forward till I figure something out. Still looks nice either way :D.
