Tell me your opinion

posted in: workshop blog | 17

Hello my dear friends, I need some feedback from you to help me to improve, and I really would like to know your opinion about my work, what things you like and what things you don’t, so I could do them better. You can comment here in this post or by email using the “contact” page. Don’t be shy! (I promise you I won’t feel offended or anything like that).

 

Here are some questions (but feel free to reply the ones you want or to add new things):

  1. Do you like the shop / website? (it is easy to use? would you change something?)
  2. Do you like the resin and the colors of LittleRebel?
  3. Is the quality of the dolls adequate?
  4. Do you like the packaging? do the parcels arrive well packaged and safe?
  5. What type of dolls do you want to see in the future? (more SD size heads, tiny dolls, msd dolls… other sizes?)
  6. Tell me anything… what do you like about my dolls, or if you don’t like them at all xD

I always take in consideration for new releases the dolls you ask me, so don’t hesitate to ask me for a certain doll or color ^_~

Thanks for your help!!

    Do you like the shop / website? (it is easy to use? would you change something?) – I’m lazy and only switch to my laptop for fic writing—so pretty much everything ‘net related is done on my phone. The site is clean, quick to load, and easy to navigate on my phone. :)

    Do you like the resin and the colors of LittleRebel? – Omg, I’m over the moon with the tan skin being offered! The only thing I’d maybe look for is a pink-based NS…?

    Is the quality of the dolls adequate? – You’re my favorite indie dollmaker. :)

    Do you like the packaging? do the parcels arrive well packaged and safe? – Everything is perfect and packaged well.

    What type of dolls do you want to see in the future? (more SD size heads, tiny dolls, msd dolls… other sizes?) – 100% looking forward to the re-release of Kai! *_* I’d love to see even more fantasy (vampire, elf, etc) heads and heads with even more non-Caucasian features.

    Tell me anything… what do you like about my dolls, or if you don’t like them at all xD – I’ve largely distanced myself from the BJD community, but I always try my best to buy your dolls when they’re released. I hope that you take that as a compliment since it was intended to be, Carmen. :)

      Thank you so much for your comment and your support, it means a lot to me that you like my work and have so many of my dolls. That is the best compliment ^///^

      I’m glad to know that the website works fine on phone! (it was one of the things that worried me because I did it to work on all devices but I only use my pc…).

      And about the resin color, I’ve been wondering if a normal-pink would be easier to match (at the moment I use “pale-normal” which is a pale-pink, and maybe something in between yellow and pink). I will ask my casting company for some resin color samples to see the color comparison. And for the new tan resin, I hope to offer it in every new release ^_^ (since it is not a custom-made color, my casting company shouldn’t have problems to make it as happened with the previous “brown” resin).

      Oh, I’m glad you are interested in more fantasy type dolls and more non-caucasian features! at the moment me too. I particularly like mixed razes features, and I’m also working on an elf version of Sarang.

        Using your website on the phone is incredibly easy! I’ve never come across an issue with it glitching or loading—if it ever comes up, though, I’ll definitely let you know ASAP! :)

        I really do love your sculpts, Carmen. The features are so distinctive and different, and I love, love, love how you do mouths. Jelle was the first sculpt of yours I found and it was love at first sight. I think I might grab another on your next re-release so that I can have twins. :) And I’ve already set aside money for Kamu and starting 3/15, I’ll be setting aside money for Kai II and Ethan’s releases, as well!

        I’m SO happy than tan skin is going to be a regular color you offer! I just received Kaylar in the mail yesterday and he’s GORGEOUS. He’s this perfect sun-kissed tan and… guh. *_* I love him. (And his ears! I love how you sculpted the elf ears, Carmen!)

        re: pink NS – I definitely do like the version that you have right now and it’s not that hard to match with some blushing, which you do with heads, anyway. :) I’ve always had issues with yellowing on my dolls despite no sunlight, and I’ve seen that pink NS has the ‘best’ yellowing results (at least for me, and I totally admit my request is for ulterior motives). If you decide to branch out with other colors, I’d love to see what you pick—for both NS choices, as well as anything fantasy-ish (maybe lavender-gray for a dark elf one day?).

        I’m so happy to hear that you’ll be doing more fantasy sculpts, too! An elf version of Sarang?? I’m so excited to hear! Sarang is my second favorite sculpt, so the only thing that would make me even more excited is an elf Jelle! XD

        I do love how you include a mix of racial features in your sculpts. It’s what makes them less ‘streamlined’ and cookie cutter—and distinctively beautiful. :) I always get so excited when you have a release announcement. I haven’t been able to buy all of the sculpts released so far, but it’s definitely a dream for ‘one day.’ :) You have so much talent, Carmen, and your sculpts continue to blow me away!

        Also, I saw in a different announcement that you’ll be doing surgery soon, and I just wanted to say that I hope it goes well and you have a speedy recovery! <3

    1.Do you like the shop / website? (it is easy to use? would you change something?)
    Hmmm… I don’t think the I’d change much, but maybe some Euro prices to work with the USD converter? Like shipping, etc. Sorry if I don’t make sense. X’D

    2.Do you like the resin and the colors of LittleRebel?)
    Hmmm, another tan that is darker? Not super dark! More of a brown than a light brown. ^_^ (like Spiritdoll or luts light tan and/or tan. <3)

    3.Is the quality of the dolls adequate?)
    The quality is superb! I love it!

    4.Do you like the packaging? do the parcels arrive well packaged and safe?)
    Yes! Packaging is great. I love the box and lil sticky note. <3

    5.What type of dolls do you want to see in the future? (more SD size heads, tiny dolls, msd dolls… other sizes?)
    If you're up for a challenge, full SD dolls would be better instead of trying to hybrid. Mostly for tan dolls. X) And more ethnicities! Mostly African-American. ^_^

    6.Tell me anything… what do you like about my dolls, or if you don’t like them at all xD)
    I loooove all of them! Sadly I missed Tenten… ;v; But I plan to collect more of your sculpts! You're my favorite independent artist! I love your art style! Thanks for your hard work!!! <3

      Aaaaah! If you could, can you release Jelle once more in tan???! I would sooooo buy Jelle in Tan!!!!! <3333333

        ^ That goes with question 5 as well.

        Maybe for the website you could add a way to edit comments? Thanks!

        • LittleRebel

          I think it is possible to edit comments for logged users during the first 5 minutes after posting it… maybe? I will check it!

        Seconding! I would love to see Jelle again—in tan or as an elf! :)

        • LittleRebel
          |

          yay for more Jelle in tan skin! :D

      Thanks for your comment and your help! ^_^

      the usd converter is not always active since it is easier to work with only one currency but I do understand that half of my customers prefer to pay in USD so I will try to have it active. The converter only works for the shop, cart and checkout page. The shipping table info can’t be converted but you can calculate shipping cost in the cart page or during the checkout.

      More people has asked me for a darker tan resin color, especially for Ethan, and I really would love to do it but I need to research about possible color matches because I haven’t got any darker resin at home for comparison. I definitely want to do more different ethnicities in the future.

      Sadly I ‘m not considering making full SD dolls by now, I’m a very small artist studio and could not afford the production cost (and EU Customs fees) of big full dolls. Also the shipping from Spain would be very high for customers.

      Another release of Jelle in tan skin is totally possible. I will add it to my list of releases for this year.

    1. Yes, I like the website. It’s nice and clean, easy and contains all the necessary information.
    2. I love the resin! It looks great and it feels so silky. I’m satisfied with LR normal skin tone and I don’t plan to have dolls in other skin tones.
    3. Oh yes! The quality is perfect.
    4. Sure. The packaging is really smart, I like the idea of that cardboard drawer. And the package arrived safely and fast.
    5. Well, I stick to big boys so it will be nice to see more SD heads.
    6. I adore your sculpts! You’re the best European BJD artist. I particularly like the Asian boy sculpts like Sarang and Seven. I’d be glad to see more Asian heads in the future. And I’d love to have Andre but I won’t be able to afford it in April if you re-release him so I hope he won’t be discontinued and will be available again in some more distant future.

      Thanks for your review Nana! ^3^
      You are very kind, It makes me so happy that you like my work. SD size boy dolls are my favourite too so there always be more, hehe.
      And I’m so glad you like André. I have released him very few times and in very small quantities so I don’t plan to discontinue him yet.

      • Nana

        Oh, that’s great, because Andre is just perfect for one of my OCs. ^.^

    —Do you like the shop / website? (it is easy to use? would you change something?)—
    yeah it’s really good and easy to use! i’m pretty sure the site design has changed since the last time i came here actually, and i’m really liking the new one!

    —Do you like the resin and the colors of LittleRebel?—
    i do! the normal skin head i have from you is a lovely colour, and when i see pictures of the other colours, i think they look very beautiful too!

    —Is the quality of the dolls adequate?—
    absolutely! i love my tenten, i would not hesitate to buy from you again at all!

    —Do you like the packaging? do the parcels arrive well packaged and safe?—
    yes! i love the little box my boy came in, it’s so cute, and a great way to keep him safe and tucked away when i’m not playing with him. ^^

    —What type of dolls do you want to see in the future? (more SD size heads, tiny dolls, msd dolls… other sizes?)—
    i’d really love to see some MSD dolls, since they’re my favourite size! more portable and easy to handle. :P
    sd heads are always great… tiny dolls i like but they’re not my favourite size. other sizes, aaah, i’d be really interested to see a sleek 50cm boy! and 35cm, too, they really don’t get enough love!

    —Tell me anything… what do you like about my dolls, or if you don’t like them at all xD—
    i love the features and sculpting of your heads, they’re really unique and you have a distinct style that’s very eye-catching and easy to recognize! i love the different types of features your heads have, no two really look alike, which is really impressive, because i have a hard time telling like…. ever irl actual human faces apart!
    i think your style would actually suit two of my OCs perfectly, but no sculpts have been released yet that look quite like them, so i’m always looking forward to your future releases! maybe someday i’ll have a million dollars and be able to like commission you or something lol!
    also…. if you ever decided to rerelease svein…. i would jump on that so fast! x3

      Thanks for your review Milk!
      and yes, I usually change the web design quite often… I worked as a web designer before and I miss it sometimes.
      I’m glad you like the resin colors and the box ^3^
      Definitely I would like to release an msd size head. I’ve been working on it, as well as I’ve been making a full msd girl but I change my mind to often and I’m not sure if I will ever finish that project.

      It makes me happy that you say that my dolls have a distinct style, that is really important for me. And I’m surprised that you think that there is no two that look alike (which is good!) because when I look back at my previous works I think, omg some of them are so alike… because I’m so fixed on certain features that I like, that I unconsciously sculpt them again and again (like Asian eyes and pouty lips). That is one of the reasons for what I discontinue most of my previous dolls, because I want to try to make more diverse faces and ethnicities, and also because my style has changed over the years and I like a bit more realistic faces now.

    Do you like the shop / website? I really like the website. It is easy to navigate and looks very professional. I also like that it is mobile friendly. There are a lot of BJD sites that are not mobile friendly. My phone is my computer. So this is a big thing for me.
    Do you like the resin and the colors of LittleRebel? The resin colors they are really easy to hybrid. The colors also have a smooth tone. I especially like the tan resin it’s a nice brown tone that is hard to find. A lot of tans I see are more orangeish which I’m not fond of.
    Is the quality of the dolls adequate? The quality is great. I also like that I can see you growing and expanding with your style over the years. I’m never dissapointed with your work. I love seeing what you are working on.
    Do you like the packaging? I personally love the boxes the dolls come in they always arrive to me safely and quickly.
    What type of dolls do you want to see in the Future? I really love Kamu I have him in tan skin I really love dolls with full lips. I wanted to buy that sculpt the day you posted the progress pics.
    I personally love your dolls I own Kamu and svein and love the jelle scupt. I’m never dissapointed when I see your new work. I look forward to seeing you grow and expanding your work.
    I absolutely love my to boys I got from you. I have Kamu and seivn. They have been a wonderful addition to my doll family.

      Thanks for your review Tristin!
      It makes me really happy that you like the web design and functionality (I love making web design as much as I like sculpting dolls, so my web is also like one of my babies xD).

      I’m glad to know that you find the resin colors easy to hybridate, that is very important. And I’m glad that you like the tan skin, I love that color… I know it might be a bit hard to find resin matches for it because many companies make tan resin orangeish but I’m also not fond on them so I prefer to stay with this tan resin that has a lovely light brown color which is easy to paint.
      Thanks for your support! I hope to be able to keep making dolls in the future and bring new ideas and interesting faces.
