Unboxing & Drawing with EXPENSIVE drawing models


Hello, hello and welcome to my glorious channel, my name is echo Gillette just in case you’re New here and today i’m gonna be unboxing and testing out some really expensive Drawing models i paid so much money for these now we’re gonna find out if it was worth it so through the glorious power of? the internet i have purchased These two drawing models in grey one is like a feminine kind of small body type and then one is kind of like a slightly Larger masculine, body, type it’s gonna, mess with, my, white balance isn’t it god Generally, these things come in two three colors you can buy Them in like pitch black Peach or grey i feel like on the pitch black figurines the highlights are really easy to see and on the really Like peach ones the shadows are easy to see whereas the grey is like a solid middle ground granted that could just be following on Personal preference but i think that the grey ones are gonna work the best for me you’ll have To, pick the ones that work the best for you and your budget, because the grey ones are more expensive if i’m gonna Be honest i’m pretty sure that they’ve stopped, making this line, but there are a lot out there that you can Buy i took a shot in the dark and got mine from ebay, which i very much don’t recommend Because ebay, is like the single most Unreliable online store platform i have ever used in my, life but i got it to work, these things are so expensive They’re, so expensive, now i’ve had those like ridiculous, like wooden figurines that you can get from ikea for like Five dollars those are good for getting like a very basic Understanding of human form these ones are so much more in depth these ones have a much more accurate depiction of like Muscle curvature they have like individual hands they’re, way more poseable And i’m very excited to play with them i have one of these things for so long there are some versions of these that seem To, be a bit more geared towards the american style of drawing but, these ones are a bit more anime esque which if i’m honest i kind of prefer Which is another reason, why i got these they’re so expensive they Also have tons of exchangeable parts and body stands, and i’m just really excited to play with. These, okay, let’s go ahead and open these Okay, so here is the body chen, and buddy kun set in grey great color version By, bandai let’s go ahead and start by opening the body, chun set So on the back of the box they Actually give you a brief explanation of the instructions you pose your figurine and then take a photo of it and then use that photo to trace over and get a reference and Then you can Use that to make the rest of your art simple no look at all these epic poses That’s just great and then in this corner it kind of shows you essentially what it comes with so this is the basic Assembly information it tells you how, to put everything together and then these are Some more complex instructions in japanese the pictures are very useful though i think that the gray Figurine, actually just comes with more stuff, and that might be why it’s more expensive than the other ones because it looks like The pink only comes with the hands and not the stand or any of the props it also comes with This sheet of lined grid paper when i was watching reviews for this i saw a bunch of people, who didn’t completely know What this, was for and it’s actually just so that you can See the space this is supposed to make it easier for a drawing area around your Figurines if you plan on drawing furniture or anything Around your character this will give you a solid idea of how to draw those foundation lines now i actually did open This one box when i first got it because i was just too curious and i had a look at all of the props So the set actually came with a samurai sword a tablet a handgun a Cell phone a flip phone a pencil and a laptop, also the laptop is actually flexible which is really cool First thing we’ve got to do, is get this all out of the plastic It looks like, if i’m reading this correctly the samurai sword should be able to fit Across, these little slits here and then these should all just fit in these little compartments i Don’t understand okay i initially had it backwards but i figured it out although i’m pretty sure i put the tablet in the wrong compartment That that is okay move that cellphone there? Awesome put all of that stuff over here sweet Based on the instructions i think i was able to assemble it correctly so that everything fits within the stand which is extra cool Okay, so now let’s have a look at the actual stand So this is the main stand and this connects to this Base plate through this tiny hole that’s right there and then this is what you’ll be attaching the figurine to, if i’m gonna Be honest this is the part that took, me a solid second to figure out the main purpose of this piece is so that your Figurine has something to rest on if you need to hold it up in the air however it also comes with This replacement piece so these two little arms that are meant to wrap around the figurines waist can be attached to either one of these frames you can just press these arms into place and then you’ll have a different grip to hold, your figurine with i Also, want to point out with this stand you Don’t actually have to use this grip at all because the model can actually be attached directly to the holder Which is really cool, according to these instructions you can, also pop out These little parts here and move this arm to other parts around, this little platform it’s very stable Okay, so now let’s have a look at the body kun Whew this one looks a bit more sturdy It looks, like this one also comes with a set of instructions but for a slightly different method This, is what the props initially look, like, before they’ve been removed, from the casing i actually got all, these pieces out By just lightly, twisting them they actually came, away from the plastic casing fairly easily So the laptop actually does come in two parts and has to be assembled There, we go it looks like This one is much more flexible than the other one which i think is just down to like machining differences this one opens and closes much farther i Think, with this One i’m actually gonna take a second and i’m gonna try and replace the hand Do i just pull it i’m so afraid to just pull this off oh that was scary what hand do i want to try yes this is the right hand lets just try this open palm ahh im worried im gonna bend it, oh my god guys im struggling I just really, don’t want to break it this does not feel natural oh Sh** There it goes there we go did it Oh, that, was terrifying one thing about these Is that the plastic is extremely soft so when i’m trying to do anything forceful with it i’m a Little bit afraid, that i’m gonna break it It’s there, no left-handed peace sign left-handed. Prejudice i Can do this strong independent woman you got this girl Okay, there we go all right after a little bit of practice it does get easier the sheer volume of flexibility on these is amazing I have pretty small womanly hands and these things fit perfectly in the palm of my Hand which for me, is kind of nice because it? Means they, won’t take up that much desk space this could just be the manufacturing but I feel, like the male model is a bit more stiff and rigid Whereas the female model is pretty loose and wobbly that could, also just be because this model is a bit Smaller one of the most impressive things in my, eyes about, these models is the range at Which they can, bend their knees ball Jointed dolls are fantastic at doing this one of my favorite features about the masculine figurine Is that his arms can, actually go forward and back this is a really cool Range of movement that i’ve never seen in another figurine let, me be excited about, my stuff doo doo doo, doo Doo, yeah he’s holding himself up right now that’s so cool, one thing that i was kind of disappointed about Was the fact that the female figurine cannot lift her arm straight up in the air whereas the Figuring, can’ this could just be a defect of these specific models but given the way that the feminine shoulders are put together i feel Like, that just might be a limited range of motion for this model i feel like, overall the masculine figurine has a bit wider Range of motion it also feels a bit more sturdy, also every now And then i see tiny little plastic, defects like the legs aren’t exactly the same this one sticks out A little bit on this side the feminine figures shoulders aren’t completely even there’s tons of little things About these models that aren’t perfect, but They, are much better than some of the other resources i have access to i’m Also really enjoying the feet on these models the flexible toes are great they’re perfect For modeling walking so from here we’re. Gonna pose them take a couple pictures and see what, we can sketch so i took a couple pictures and then i found One that i liked and i pulled it into photoshop just to see if i could get kind of like, some basic Line art i mainly, wanted to see how. Easily These photos, would transfer into like, actual workable lines i really, wasn’t like investing My heart or soul into this drawing i was just kind of scribbling when i was drawing this i was also working with My wacom intuos drawing tablet Which is not in an on-screen drawing tablet so it’s not Necessarily the best for a line art i mainly use this for coloring i feel like These figurines have a lot of potential but i also feel like i need to make a bit more artwork with Them before i can, decide if they’re Actually a very good tool so i may come, back to these in the future So cool, i love it i love it so much i think, overall i’m very happy with This purchase especially given that i was able to find some slightly cheaper ones they’re not Perfect i can, admit that but, they are way Better than the really common wooden ones that you see all the time so my audience and i have been working on making a bunch Of original characters and i plan on putting them into comics at, some point and i feel like these are Going to be extremely helpful as references when i make those comics overall i’m happy, with, it i’m excited to see, where this Adventure goes and i’ll keep you guys updated They are a tiny bit more rigid than i would have expected But i think i can work around that i think i’m going to get a Fair amount of use out of these here are, some really cool fan art By really cool, people i love that i have a community of artists it’s great i’m gonna give you 300 all Some points for watching me unbox my brand-new Fancy toys and i think that’s everything for now so hopefully i will see you guys later bye Fuck you and your 5 percent juice ah

  1. I also have body kun and bady chan. I ordered them online for almost like 2 dollars. Not an original version though. But good to use.

  2. soon we'll be able to print products like these
    for almost no cost at home with 3D printing… nice channel btw

  3. I have all 3 colors. All the colors do come with all the hands, box, accessories and stand that you see here in the video. For anyone one is wondering.

  4. RE eBay: once bought a ‘secondhand’ purse that replaced one that was stolen. I really liked it.
    I got the bag, & IMMEDIATELY the Vendor lost her fool mind sending me increasingly hostile messages demanding immediate payment. I was on an out-of-country 💢roaming charges💢 road trip, so I couldn’t get phone or wifi for 36 hours. I had a TORRENT of threatening messages pile up from her. I paid her

    It showed up & the psychotic twat didn’t simply sell me a KNOCK OFF PURSE, she had SPIT ALL OVER THE SOFT BLACK SUEDE & LEATHER, & stuck a note inside saying “NO REFUNDS! Pay your bills!”
    💢36 hours💢
    It also cost me money to have it professionally cleaned to get the smell off it, her spit & patch where she burned the silky lining. I know it was a FRESH burn, because the bag didn’t just smell of tobacco, the liner burn still smelled burnt.
    Total psycho (the photos of the bag didn’t have a burn inside it.)

  5. Thank you so much for confirming against ebay because I saw these on eBay and there were really bad reviews so I wasn't sure. Are there any safe sites you could recommend to get these?
    Also, thanks for showing how these work. Very informative. 😁

  6. I dont understand why anyone would seriously think they could learn to draw using daft little mannequins. Lay out some cash on attending a life drawing class. Get enough people together and hire a model. Its the best way.

  7. If you want a more less expensive and bigger doll, there is the Made-To-Move Barbie that has all the joints that these dolls have except extra hands and stuff.

  8. They sell the models on wish. https://www.wish.com/search/drawing%20figure/product/5a01235ffd9db803c299367d?&source=search

  9. this is so wrong how dare they say there are only two options for sex and only one option for body type…this embodies everything wrong with the world…..lol just kidding but I'm sure nobody was surprised

  10. I kinda feel like you should only use it as a reference on the side just to help you. And it’s better to not trace. :))))

  11. If you’re worried about breaking or bending the ball & socket joint for the interchangeable hands, just pop some Vaseline or something similar on to lubricate.

  12. THOSE ARE NOT EXPENSIVE !!!!!!!
    24,99 € is the PRICE !  = https://www.ebay.es/i/283009363712?chn=ps 

    IS CHEAP !!!
    WTF THIS GIRL IS SAYING ?

    HAVE YOU SEEN THE "DANNY CHOO" "DOLLS" ??? THOSE THINGS ARE LIKE 400 WHATEVER

  13. They aren’t that expensive! I got mine from japan for $49.99 when they first came out, I would it paid $99.99 if have to, I wanted it this models figures since I was a kid. I was using my brother as a model 😂😂😂… I will follow your page because you’re wearing my favorite colors “black & red” ⚫️🔴⚫️🔴🖤❤️

  14. These figures are super neat, tho if you buy them, be aware that they can come with a LOT of small (and some bigger) flaws.
    For example this is a list of flaws/faulty parts on the Body-kun I bought:
    – one wrist joint keeps coming apart and has limited movement. Because of this, exchanging the hands is very hard and I am often afraid to do it at all because I feel like I might break something
    – one elbow joint was built in upside down which results in the elbow moving in the right direction but at the wrong point so the arm always looks disproportionate if bent. I tried fixing it but the joints are riveted, so there's nothing you can do about it
    – one knee is loose and won't stay in pose
    – one leg is longer than the other
    – one foot is nearly immoveable
    – the head keeps popping off at the slightest movement

    – I keep having to fasten the screws on the stand like every other day because the become loose immediately
    In day to day use, those things just add up and quickly become annoying to have to work around all the time. Tho I still like using the figure for hard to figure out poses. It's helped me a bunch of times, tho I gotta say I wouldn't buy the figure again. I'd honestly rather spend more than 25 bucks (which is what I paid for this one) and get a more high-quality figure instead.

  15. make sure u dont buy the fake ones https://www.google.com/search?q=body+kun+fake+vs+real&rlz=1C1GCEU_enGB821GB821&source=lnms&tbm=isch&sa=X&ved=0ahUKEwjnm82_5cXiAhWFsnEKHUJhBVYQ_AUIDigB&biw=1527&bih=780#imgrc=_gAwTnB2LbSSjM:

  16. its so fucking hard finding real ones. so many Chinese rip off ones. and the reel ones are twice as expensive.

  17. I bought my first Body-Kun drawing model and I LOVE IT ❤❤❤ https://potterylabpro.com/best-drawing-mannequin-model/ I used this REVIEW ✅✅✅ GOOD LUCK to all!

  18. I need those!!! Um… For.. art reasons… Not bc I wanna play with them🤣 ok I wanna play with them like a little kid😂🤷

  19. Hi Echo! 😃 I'm a toy photographer, we use action figures like these to re-create scenes from comic books, movies and our imaginations.

    I'd love it if you'd shoot my IG a follow! My name on instagram is Fantastic Figures! If you ever have time check me out and let me know what you think!

    You helped me with color a lot

  20. I learned to use digital models, with Daz Studio, but there are various platforms. Daz Studio is free, but it takes some background in computers and using software. I pose the figures but pay attention to the proportions and perspective. It takes practice to ignore all the particularisms of the model. All i really need is to be able to look at it and sketch a general thing, and put in details later.
