Doctor Who dollified

new videoJasna Bronić MiklinComment

My bottom still hurts from the long painting marathon.

12 hours of painting in just one day. It was not ergonomic and I discovered I could have been sitting on a pillow when it was already too late. I will not be doing such a painting session ever again.

Ok, maybe for Star Wars. And My Little Pony. But nothing else!

Probably.

At least I think it was worth it. I love how some of the minidolls turned out. And according to the first comments and likes - other people think it was worth it too.

I wanted to do this video since forever and I'm glad I can check it off now.

The Contraption

new videoJasna Bronić Miklin

The not-so-secret sauce of my dollify videos: the Contraption.

This part has changed how I dollify. It has pushed the limits of what is possible and I'm so used to it in the meantime that it has become a standard tool in my toolbox. I've even used it to secure a wobbly spiral in my micro version of Atlantica.

I didn't have great hopes in regards to views for this video, so I was pleasantly surprised when it got around 25k views in the first 48 hours. I'm very  curious as to how it's numbers will progress.

How to modify LEGO hair pieces

new videoJasna Bronić Miklin

There I was, building figures for the next dollify video when all of a sudden it hit me: I need to cut some of these hair pieces. Did I need them? No. But once I had the idea, there was no escaping it.

While cutting I wondered why I didn't think of this before? I don't know. But I'm glad I have this video out now: https://youtu.be/Rhpn7WmQov0 and not only because that's the third week in a row that has a published video. 

The video is now out for a few hours and is doing well. My experiment shows (for now) that when I upload a new video the whole channel gets a great boost in views. But it lasts only as long as the weekend. It seems that uploading once a week instead of once a month (for me) just stops the decline in views. *sigh*
