Sorry for dropping off of the face off the earth, but I was a busy bee this past weekend to make up for it! I completed 2 face ups and started on another.
The two I finished were a CP Luts Delf modded SS Chiwoo and a Switch Shiho. The third face up I started on is on a Doll Love YouYou. I also never showed the color matched Doll Leaves Dreaming Jax! I'll need to post her too.
Without further ado, onto some pictures!
Since I'm still waiting on my next commissions to come in, I decided to repaint a head I modded ages ago for my wife. The head is a Dollzone April, who I modded from open-eyed to dreaming. It was my first eye mod ever, so it's not perfect, but it looks good enough!
Without further ado, onto some pictures!
My wife has always wanted me to match her face up to the default on her normal Dollzone April. I had to try and color match, which let me tell you is difficult without an airbrush, to cover the mods. She turned out a little dark, but it's hard to tell in pictures. I'm already plotting how I'd redo this face up down the line.
Here you can see the original face up I slapped on her on the left. It was very pretty, but not quite what my wife wanted. It only took me 3-4 years to redo the head. It was low priority since my wife rarely plays with her dolls anymore, but I was itching to paint something, so she was grabbed out of the parts drawer, haha!
I will end this post with a comparison picture of the two Dollzone April heads. On the left is the modded one, on the right is the un-modded one with default face up that I added freckles to.
Until next time!
I've been hard at work on the Nobility Doll MNM Bill Kaulitz head with his Loongsoul 75cm body. I got the head done so far, and the modding of the neck on the body. It's been a very intense commission so far!
Anyway, onto some pictures of the head!
Here's a list of what I all had to do with the head:
Here's the head on the Loongsoul body post modding. I don't have pictures of the before mod fit, but it was pretty bad. The neck has a 13cm circumference, and the head is meant for 10.5cm. So I took quite a bit off. At least he's got great mobility!
Now I just need to blush his torso, peens (there's 5 of them), and give him a mani and pedicure. I'm quite pleased with how good the color match turned out to the body! Loongsoul NP is very very pink and light!
Anyway, that's all from me for now, until next time!
Oh man, with my new work schedule (that still changes from week to week after heaving a steady set schedule for over a year) has been really cutting into my face up time. I will get my last few commissions done though, I'll just have to do some time juggling!
Anyway, this weekend I completed an Iplehouse YID Erica and another Fairyland LTF Rolly VE with an eye opening mod.
First up is the Iplehouse YID Erica in special real skin. She was a lot of fun to work on to give her an icy look. Sorry for the third image being blurry, I'd already packed up the head so I couldn't retake that one.
Then we have a dear friend's Fairyland LTF Rolly VE in natural skin. Her eyes were already opened by a previous artist, but I opened and shaped them a little more to make her less sleepy looking. I was asked to match her eyebrows and eyelashes to her wig, and give her blue eyeliner along with light freckles. This is at least her 3rd face up, I'm the third artist to work on her.
Here's a before and after of her last face up by another artist that sadly chipped. She made a character change, hence why she needed a new look anyway! Eye opening mods with existing eyewells are a lot less intimidating than I thought they'd be. Before this I've done an eye closing mod, which wasn't too difficult either. It's kind of entertaining how I'm branching out into modding.
I'm expecting another face up to do for the same client/friend that the Rolly belongs to, as another one of her doll's face up chipped. She always has such fun concepts for me to work off of!
Either way, that's it for now, until next time!
I finally finished the eye mod and face up on the Mirodoll Lele yesterday. He was an interesting challenge to work on, and only the second eye mod I've ever done. The first was an eye-closing mod on a Dollzone April where I modded her from open to dreaming. The sculpting is very strange on the Mirodoll Lele, but I did my best with him!
Anyway, onto some pictures!
Here he is in all his glory. I've jokingly nicknamed him Mr. Anger because of the pronounced brow bone.
And here's the before and after mod picture of him. His eyes were far to wide, close together, and narrow. Modding the eyes was definitely a learning curve. Good thing I still have all of my sculpting tools!
I used Apoxie Sculpt in bright white (I think that's the color) and then color matched it afterwards with watercolor paint. I'm slowly starting to debate offering mod work regularly rather than on a request basis.
Either way, that's all from me for now!
