Hi, I'm Sara. I'm a full-time artist living on the range outside of Casper Wyoming, in a place where the deer and antelope play.

Hope you enjoy my work! I pride myself in making it wonderful, and in shipping it fast.

I am no longer selling on Ebay. Instead, I'm selling all my work quickly and privately from Facebook and my newsletter. If you wish to own one of my sculptures, I advise you go onto my website, and sign up for my newsletter. That way, you'll be notified whenever I have something for sale.

You definitely need more watchers, I really don't like how professional artists don't get as much attention as some hobbyist digital artists like wth ?? Your figures are super creative and well proportioned with nice details... I really like them.

And you've been on here nine years !??!?! You deserve over a thousand watchers by now!!

Thank you! Glad you like these cats.

For one, my website has been down and undergoing a major overhaul for some time now, which I'm sure can draw in a lot of watchers and attention. Also, some of these young hobbyist artists you speak of are in high school or college, which means they still have a lot of friends. Sadly, once you're older, your social life can suffer. A lot. Especially if you're an artist. A lot of artists who started in their late twenties like I did struggle to network, because they had no substantial group of real-life friends to grow a network from.

On the bright side, watchers doesn't necessarily mean money. You could have 50,000 watchers, and they could be mostly broke high schoolers who aren't going to pay $500 and up for original art. I have few watchers, but they're the right ones. Through them, I'm making a living doing this, which few artists can claim. I'm not rich, or even maybe even middle class, and I sculpt about 16 hours a day. But I have a roof over my head, food in my fridge, electricity and internet. I'm even supporting a sick family member at this time with my sculpting. That's pretty darn cool, ain't it?

The link to your website goes to a non-existent site. Do you have a link to your Facebook page?

Thanks for letting me know! I just fixed the problem. I had two domains, going to the same spot. www.brutalsun.com ought to work.

Your work is fantastic. I love it. And I know what I'm talking about. My sister, who lives with me, is a professional full-time doll repaint artist. You have full mastery of your tools and techniques. I confess I'll be doing a bit of repainting and/or face-ups myself this coming month, to make ends meet a little better. I can only hope to be a fraction as good as you at it!

Thank you! I've been painting dolls for over a decade and painting BJD's since 2006. What type of dolls does your sister paint? With your skills, I think you'll be fine at face-ups. Just practice and try new things. Everything I did over the years I learned by practicing on my own. Thank you again for the lovely comment! :heart:

My sister paints mostly vinyl Ellowyne dolls, and sells them quickly and privately, off her list and on forums. Demand has dropped off for regular Tonner dolls over the years, but the Ellowyne market remains strong and unsaturated, for some reason. She's occasionally sold dolls for $800 over the past few years. Quite a few $600 dolls. Her usual is about $450--anything below that is considered low for her. The Ello market is very 'vanilla' though. These ladies want dolls that look good in modern spring dresses, et cetera. No weird eye colors. No weird tattoos, or haircuts. If my sister paints a doll with lips a bit too dark, or irises too vibrant, the doll sale flops tragically.

Sadly, sis sucks at having a web presence, so it's near impossible to find a gallery of her work online. I keep telling her she should at least have a DA account and a Facebook page; if she did, she'd be one of the best known doll artists out there. But I'm her sister. Who am I to tell her anything?
