Balthazar by Magweno Balthazar by Magweno
:iconlovelytwistofnature:'s commission. She picked her favourite features from previous dolls and I combined them to make Balthazar! He has the ferret-dragon's mane, Liwanu's paws and Ozzy & Vitriolize's wings. She also wanted complex markings but didn't know what, so I did sort of tiger stripes with a blue/purple gradient in the middle. Ohhh airbrush how I love you so ^_^

I had real trouble taking photos of him. Turns out the LCD screen on my D5000 has gone funny and doesn't show much red, so the purples were coming up blue on image review but were fine on the computer.

Also a very boring white background for Balthazar, it's taken me three days to get decent colour-correct photos of him which is ridiculous, so unimaginative photos again. Sorry guys!

He is a fully posable art doll, he has a wire armature which you can gently reposition into any pose you want. Legs, tail, spine, neck, head, wings, everything can be bent, the possibilities for positioning him are endless. He is also one of a kind, I have made him from scratch and there will never, ever be another doll exactly like him!

Are they posable or does that cost more? What is the AVERAGE price XD?

Magweno Featured By Owner Nov 26, 2011  Professional Artisan Crafter
Every doll is entirely posable :) That is what you pay for, I don't make non-posable dolls.
Prices vary between 150-300. It depends if you give me a reference sheet and say 'make that' or if you just want a doll with a couple of certain characteristics, like a purple colour scheme and lots of feathers and I can have a fair amount of artistic freedom. If your doll has wings that puts the price up too; it really varies.
