Alright! Those that keep track of my website changes have probably already seen in my examples gallery that I posted 4 more face ups. I was a very busy bee this past weekend and painted them all over the course of 2 days to distract myself. My wife had to return to the US for the next 3 months as we sort things out with the immigration department here in Austria. I won't go into it here, but it's left me pretty lonely in my apartment with my two cats.
Anyway, the heads I painted are CP Luts Delf Modded Chiwoo SS, CP Luts Nanuri '06, Luts SDF Loid, and a Luts SDF Winter Event 2011 head. I posted them in the last blog post freshly scrubbed clean. A brave Mr.Clean Magic Eraser gave its life for that purpose. Poor thing stood no chance!
Without further ado, onto some pictures!
They are in the order that I listed them above. The client asked for natural face ups for all of them. I love how different their expressions are. Though I wish I'd taken before picturs of the ones with face ups to show how much they've changed. The Chiwoo for example was a goth boy. No longer though!
I replaced the eye putty in the Luts Loid because he had polymer clay in there which had already cracked his acrylic eyes. The others were sent without eyes so for the sake of pictures I just used some I had laying around. I have a lot less spare eyes now than I used to!
Since I managed to finish so many commissions in such a short span of time, I'm opening commissions again for this month! So if you've got a blank head rolling around and desire one of my face ups, please send me a message on my contact page!
That's all from me for now. Until next time!
I had a long week, but I managed to relax a bit with a face up on Friday. I got to paint a Lati S.Belle in normal skin as a little goth. She turned out really cute! I can't wait to see her put together!
Without further ado, onto some pictures!
She's cute as a button! I had a lot of fun with painting her. I didn't want her lips to be pure black, so I made them a grayish red instead.
I also received a large commission order, one for 4 SD heads. Three still had face ups, so I scrubbed those clean last night and gave the 4th head a cleaning too.
The poor eraser stood no chance against them. I'm impressed it only took one whole eraser to get them all clean with. From left to right we have a modded Luts CP Chiwoo SS, a Luts CP Nanuri '06, a Luts Winter 2011 Event Head, and a Luts Loid. All except for the Chiwoo, who is beauty white, are normal skin.
I've already started on all the normal skin heads as they pretty much all can use the same palette for blushing. So far they got their eyebrows and the first blushing layer. The Chiwoo will get painted by himself as he needs a different palette for being white skin. I'm having fun either way!
Anyway, that's all from me for now! Until next time!
I FINALLY got some new work to show! I had a productive Saturday yesterday and finished up the Impldoll Isaac and repainted a CP Luts Delf Lishe as well. I spent close to 6 or 7 hours just face upping yesterday, it was glorious! My work schedule's been really crazy so I've only been able to face up on the weekends.
Anyway, onto some pictures!
First up the Impldoll Isaac for a friend of mine. I was pretty much done with him when I was asked to add the illusion of an eyelid crease to him as the owner didn't quite like the monolid look. I'm actually rather proud of how it turned out since I don't do the painted eyelid crease thing at all. I only used pastels to do it.
Then here we have a CP Luts Delf Lishe in the original tan from 10 years ago. She's an old (but beautiful) gal owned by a local client. She wanted me to recreate as closely as possible her default face up. We agreed that I wouldn't be able to replicate it perfectly as I have a different style most of the time, but I got it pretty close! Either way, she loves her new face and that's the most important part. She aslo asked me to pierce her ears, which is a simple enough mod. Now she gets to wear pretty earings!
I'm hoping to do some face up work today too, but I'm still a bit undecided. I started on the Doll Chateau Andre yesterday too, but ran out of steam...
Until next time!
