With no commissions to paint currently, I've been slowly evaluating which ones of my dolls need a refresher. This weekend Val, my Dollzone Chen in normal yellow skin, got an updated look. His head matches his body better too now!
Without further ado, onto some pictures!
So here's my handsome man. I wanted to mute his colors a bit to look more sickly I suppose? He's a vampire after all and shouldn't look as lively as he was. The part I'm most proud of in this face up are the eyebrows. I spent a long time on shaping and painting them!
Here's the quick comparison of his old to new look. This is literally the 5th face up I've done on him, and I think I finally gave him eyelashes successfully. Though he did fight me on gluing them in place.
I will end this post with the above comparison of all the face ups he's had so far.
Until next time!
I did it guys, I reached my goal of 250 completed face ups! And it was on one of my own dolls, my Dollzone Chen in normal yellow skin. I'm so thrilled that I reached this milestone as I've been a face up artist for about 4.5 years at this point. I've grown so much in this craft, it's amazing to look back.
Anyway, let's get to the pictures!
I like his eyebrows much better again this time around than last. Last time they were so... expressionless? I'm also much more pleased with his blushing. He looks like he's rolling his eyes, that was not intentional.
It's kind of funny how his color seems to be different in each photo, but I promise it's the same head each time! He's on his 4th face up, and it's my favorite so far!
Since I reached a milestone, it's time to post my collage again!
It's been a while since I've posted my face up collage. It's gotten quite massive at this point! My poor photoshop file takes forever to open! One day I swear I should print it as a blanket or something, not like that'd be creepy or anything to have a blanket of a bunch of heads!
Anyway, I'm expecting some more commissions soon so there'll be lots of new work again! Until next time!
I did a face up yesterday and today, and they are posted to the examples page, I just haven't posted a blog post with them yet. Bad me!
Anyway, I redid my Dollzone Miss Kitty and Dollzone Chen's face up in the last two days. Neither changed much, they are mostly just redos for the characters just to update the technique. Both turned out lovely, though with the DZ Chen I tried applied eyelashes and after about 2 hours decided to pull them off. Oh well, Val just isn't the lashy kinda guy.
First up is my Dollzone Miss Kitty who I repainted yesterday. She's my always concerned little lion girl who is actually on a DC K-01 body with Soom MD Cheshire paws. I also recently discovered she likes to wear pants. Who knew?
Then we have my Dollzone Chen, who's been in my collection for a good 3.5 years. He was originally my third face up, then my 38th, and now my 171st. I actually have pulled off the eyelashes at this point but didn't retake the pictures. He simply looks better without them...
That's it for now of my own crew. With March right around the corner it's time to work on commissions again. This time off has been very refreshing and it was nice being able to redo a few of my own dolls.
