I had a very productive Saturday yesterday, I did 3 face ups from start to finish! I painted a HZ Wang-Ye in tan skin, a Fairyland MNF RFA event head in natural skin, and a Resinsoul Rong head in white skin. The two MSD sized heads were from one client, and the Wang-Ye was from another. I have one more doll to do for that client and everyone can go home!
Anyway, without further ado, onto some pictures!
First up is the HZ Wang-Ye, or as the client calls him "Mr. Angry-Face". He came with a face up already which the client wanted me to redo with more anger in the brows. Before he kinda just looked like "Meh", now he's full on rage! Figuring out the blushing palette was interesting as his resin is kind of translucent.
Here's his before and after image. The client asked me to keep the designs as close as possible like on the first face up, but with some small modifications. He's definitely an angry doll!
Next up are the two MSD sized heads for a different client! I always love working on their dolls.
First up is the Fairyland MNF RFA event head in natural skin. With this face up I was asked for freckles along the cheeks and nose, natural blushing and make up. I always love doing freckles, pity hardly any of my dolls have them!
Then last, but certainly not least, is the Resinsoul Rong in white skin. She's a woodland sprite/nymph and I was asked to keep her color scheme in tune with that, but otherwise I had a lot of freedom. She was oddly yellowed in the face, which is really strange as she's been in a bag since the client dropped her off with me. I managed to cover it with the face up at least!
That's all for now, until next time!
I finished documenting the rest of the Ringdoll Teen Melody and her DikaDoll 1/3 Jointed Girl Hands in white skin. I also reached a huge milestone for myself. I got to 300 completed face ups! The Impldoll Isaac from the last post was #299, so I redid my Resinsoul Ai named Zephyra as #300, because it's tradition.
Without further ado, onto some pictures!
First up is the Ringdoll Teen Girl body in normal skin and the DikaDoll 1/3 Jointed Girl hands that go with her. She's rosier in person, but my camera always washes out the details. I really should invest in a light box, but that'll have to wait until I'm in Austria. I'm getting all jittery at this point for the big move!
I also snapped a picture of the Ringdoll Teen Melody with her wig on to show to the client. They are happy with the work! Now to work on the rest of their commissions! I still got a Loongsoul White Tiger Ye and another head to work on for them.
Now onto the big #300! As a tradition I always redo my Resinsoul Ai when I reach a new 100th. She was originally my first face up, then my 100th, 200th, and now 300th! I like to always redo her in the same theme to see how I've improved in 99 face ups. It's kind of silly to always redo her, but I've stuck with it!
Anyway onto the pictures!
She's a wind/ice themed character, and I have a love for painting swirls. She's been in my collection the longest, I received her in June of 2011. I've hybrided her on a DF-A 60cm girl body with modded thighs to accommodate the Soom FC Beryl hooves. I really like how she turned out this time!
The first face up I had some help with on the eyebrows and eyelashes because I was getting a private face up workshop from a friend. The 100th face up I waaaay over blushed, and I was still using watercolor pencils. The 200th face up is very pale but nicely done. My favorite is definitely the 300th now, just the right amount of blushing, blending, and fantasy aspects.
That's it for now! Still got more stuff to work on. I think I'm staying closed with my face up shop until after I move to Austria. It's crunch time now and I can't take on anymore and hope to get them done in time...
Anyway, until next time!
Whew! It's been a while since I've posted here, I'm so sorry for that! I've been super busy at work and working on dolls as well. Today I've got a Ringdoll Teen Melody and Impldoll Isaac to show off.
Enough blather, onto some pictures!
First up is the Ringdoll Teen Melody in normal skin. I also painted her body and a pair of Dikadoll 1/3 Jointed Girl hands. I haven't documented that yet so that'll be my next post!
Here's a quick before and after shot of the Melody. It's always so interesting how different dolls look painted by different artists!
Then here's the Impldoll Isaac in real skin. I've worked on him before for the same client, but they wanted me to repaint him as his character had grown. I was happy to work with them again!
Then here's his before and after. How he's changed! It was an interesting challenge to do the silver under his eyes and not cover it completely with his eyelashes. Either way he's going home soon and I can't wait to see him with a wig and body!
That's all from me for now, until next time!
