It's been a while since I've updated the site, so I cleaned up the example gallery a little, removing older face ups to keep the rest more up to date to my current skill level. I also repainted my Fairyland LTF Dark Elf Soo in tan skin because her old face up had bothered me for a while... I'll get to the FYI after the face up pictures.
Here's my little cutie! I actually had to start over 2/3 of the way through the face up because I hated how her blushing was coming out. It looked like she'd gotten sunburnt! But that is a shame that I did not document with photos, so let's just sweep that failure under the rug to be forgotten forever.
Here's the comparison of her previous to current face up. I've owned her since 2013 I think (got her secondhand), and her last face up was on her for a good 4 years, so it was time to redo it. What was entertaining was that she has yellowed in that time, except under her old eyebrows. I'm not the most careful with my own dolls, but commissions I treat with waaaay more respect than my own because I don't care if my dolls yellow. But I don't want to do that to a client's doll!
Anyway, onto the FYI:
I'm closing new commissions for the moment because I have so many multipart ones incoming that I want to devote my time to. I'd rather keep my turn around time as it is while I'm looking for a full time job here again. I will make a blog post and update the landing page of my site when I'm ready to take on more again!
That is all for now, until next time!
I finally got around to redoing my Fairyland LTF Dark Elf Soo's face up in tan now that I'm taking a break to work on personal projects. Her old face up has bothered me just about since I put it on her, but I kept getting so many commissions that I didn't have time to redo hers.
I still have a few more to reface up, but they will be dispersed throughout the week. If I feel up to it I might even do one tomorrow! Anyway, onto some pictures!
I really love how her eyes came out. It took me roughly 20 minutes and about 5 tries to get the eyelashes to a point I liked them and NOT go too far on them. I kept overworking them badly... Either way I kept working on them and now she's quite dramatic, perfect for a pirate princess since her mother, my DZ Stramonium, is the pirate queen.
Here's also a before and after picture of her two face ups. When I got her originally last summer she had a fairyland default face up, but I wiped it before I even took pictures of it. They had put so much silver shimmer on it that she looked like she was sweating. Just didn't work on the tan skin. I keep forgetting to put shimmer on Bonnie, maybe later I'll give her a layer of gold shimmer just to make her shine.
Here's a picture of her all put together! She's such a cutie. Now I want to redo my DZ Stramonium to match.
