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 managed to finish the last of the commissions I had and shipped everything out today. I feel accomplished!
As for the FYI, I'm closing commissions until March. I'm going to take a break and work on some personal projects since my poor dolls have been neglected with old face ups that I could do so much better now!
Anyway, onto the work from this week!
First up is a Fairyland LTF Rolly VE faceplate from a friend of mine. She wanted me to paint her as a little goth girl, which I was happy to do. I think it turned out very nice.
And then here we have the legs of my SO's Soom Ai girl. She's a red dear so red hooves it is. I was surprised at how few layers that took to build up. I only used about two layers of color to build up the red and another two for the hooves.
