I've been sick as a dog since Saturday, but I finally feel better today so that's a good thing. That means I can finally mail out the last two commissions I had completed. Either way, I repainted my new girl yesterday and finally documented her this morning. She is a Limhwa Lily in normal skin.
I'm really impressed with her posing, the MSD Limhwa girl body really is a treasure. It moves very smoothly and holds poses nicely. I haven't even really bothered to think about sueding her. Her buttlocks are a little finicky, but they do work to keep her sitting upright. Overall, I am very pleased with her.
Now for the FYI:
I'm holding a free face up raffle on my Tumblr. The rules and everything are in this post. Since I'm all out of commissions I thought it would be fun to hold another raffle. I tend to greatly enjoy them. Either way, if you would like to try and get a free face up from me and have a tumblr, like and reblog that post!
Well looks like I'm out of commissions again, but that's okay. My friend who wanted me to paint her DF-A Fox decided to sell the little booger instead.
All I got to paint now is my new doll that is coming today (a Limhwa Lily), and maybe redo some face ups on my own dolls, but that's about it. Val, my DZ Chen, is in need of a new face up, his is rather old at this point (it was #38). I'm at 138 completed face ups at this point, which has me really proud. I started taking commissions for face ups around end of 2011/beginning 2012. I feel pretty accomplished with how far I've gotten in my craft.
Either way, if you need a doll painted, or a friend does, just send me a contact form, or an email, and I'd be happy to do so. I lowered my turn around rate to 2-3 weeks, though more than likely I'll get done sooner with your dears. I'm debating buying ad space on DoA again, it did help business last time.
I finished up two commissions today, one that I have had for ages sitting with me from a friend that had given me artistic license to do whatever I wanted to on her Dollmore Gem Doll Dona. I also worked on another friend's Dollzone June.
Now for some pictures of the two!
First up we have the Dollzone June. My friend wanted her to have freckles and I gave her some of my premium eyelashes, which are pretty but such a pain to put on. They are actually human fake eyelashes that I simply trim to doll sized. Rather sad that this sculpt is discontinued...
Then here we have the Dollmore Basic Gem Doll Dona in normal skin. She's actually a fairy, but every time I tried to make her fairy like it just didn't look good, so finally I went with a biker look and it clicked. The head is minuscule, as are her hands. Putting that tattoo on her was a challenge because of her voluptuous nature.
Either way, that leaves me with only one commission now, a Doll Family-A Fox. So tell your friends about my shop if they're looking to commission someone to paint one of their lovelies!
I finally got around to documenting my latest face up. It's on my own Fairyland LTF DES in tan. She's super cute and the FL tan is actually really nice, I like it a lot. It's so funny to compare her to my fiancee's LTF DES in normal skin.
Here is Bonnie, she's Jazz's, my DZ Stramonium, daughter. I'm actually in the middle of modding a white LTF hand to look like bone, so keep your eyes peeled for that too!
Now I just need to buckle down and finish up the rest of my commissions. It's been really hectic with work and trying to find a new job that is less draining. Enough whining now, and back to work with me!
I'm back from my trip overseas to see my family and came home with treats, many experiences, and an awkward sunburn along my neck and chest from walking without sunscreen in Budapest.
My SO and I visited Austria, Hungary, and Serbia. She didn't like Serbia much (the amenities weren't the greatest, i.e.: the outhouse for a bathroom), but she loved everything else. It was her first trip to Europe and across the ocean. Her favorite part was all the food.
It is nice to be back home though and in our own bed. So much nicer than a pull out couch for 2 weeks. It was comfortable, but still it's good to be home. The kitties missed us a lot and greeted us with a chorus.
Either way, that means I'm open for commissions again. I still have a few left over that I'll hammer out this next week.
