I finished documenting the rest of the Ringdoll Teen Melody and her DikaDoll 1/3 Jointed Girl Hands in white skin. I also reached a huge milestone for myself. I got to 300 completed face ups! The Impldoll Isaac from the last post was #299, so I redid my Resinsoul Ai named Zephyra as #300, because it's tradition.
Without further ado, onto some pictures!
First up is the Ringdoll Teen Girl body in normal skin and the DikaDoll 1/3 Jointed Girl hands that go with her. She's rosier in person, but my camera always washes out the details. I really should invest in a light box, but that'll have to wait until I'm in Austria. I'm getting all jittery at this point for the big move!
I also snapped a picture of the Ringdoll Teen Melody with her wig on to show to the client. They are happy with the work! Now to work on the rest of their commissions! I still got a Loongsoul White Tiger Ye and another head to work on for them.
Now onto the big #300! As a tradition I always redo my Resinsoul Ai when I reach a new 100th. She was originally my first face up, then my 100th, 200th, and now 300th! I like to always redo her in the same theme to see how I've improved in 99 face ups. It's kind of silly to always redo her, but I've stuck with it!
Anyway onto the pictures!
She's a wind/ice themed character, and I have a love for painting swirls. She's been in my collection the longest, I received her in June of 2011. I've hybrided her on a DF-A 60cm girl body with modded thighs to accommodate the Soom FC Beryl hooves. I really like how she turned out this time!
The first face up I had some help with on the eyebrows and eyelashes because I was getting a private face up workshop from a friend. The 100th face up I waaaay over blushed, and I was still using watercolor pencils. The 200th face up is very pale but nicely done. My favorite is definitely the 300th now, just the right amount of blushing, blending, and fantasy aspects.
That's it for now! Still got more stuff to work on. I think I'm staying closed with my face up shop until after I move to Austria. It's crunch time now and I can't take on anymore and hope to get them done in time...
Anyway, until next time!
Whew! It's been a while since I've posted here, I'm so sorry for that! I've been super busy at work and working on dolls as well. Today I've got a Ringdoll Teen Melody and Impldoll Isaac to show off.
Enough blather, onto some pictures!
First up is the Ringdoll Teen Melody in normal skin. I also painted her body and a pair of Dikadoll 1/3 Jointed Girl hands. I haven't documented that yet so that'll be my next post!
Here's a quick before and after shot of the Melody. It's always so interesting how different dolls look painted by different artists!
Then here's the Impldoll Isaac in real skin. I've worked on him before for the same client, but they wanted me to repaint him as his character had grown. I was happy to work with them again!
Then here's his before and after. How he's changed! It was an interesting challenge to do the silver under his eyes and not cover it completely with his eyelashes. Either way he's going home soon and I can't wait to see him with a wig and body!
That's all from me for now, until next time!
I finally managed to finish the Ringdoll Fat Happiness and get him approved by the client! This past week was crazy with work and appointments, but I finally had some time yesterday to paint him.
Without further ado, onto some pictures!
For some odd reason my black paint didn't want to show up on him very well. I swear that I did give him painted eyelashes!! He still turned out cute at least!
He was certainly a tough commission for me as I had to sand him head to toe and then dye him, which I'd never done before. I don't think I will offer dyeing as a service though, I'll just stick to small mods, piercings, and face ups/body blushes of course. Either way, he's done and ready to go home!
Either way, I'm hoping to work on more stuff today once I wake up a little more!
Now for an FYI:
I decided to close commissions until the new year because I'll be in Florida with the inlaws from December 26th through the 31st, so I'd rather try to get through the ones I have now before I leave than take on anymore and make the clients wait an extra week. Thank you to everyone to make the year nice!
Until next time!
It's been a looooong week for me work wise so it felt good to work on dolls today a bit! I mostly did modding work, I'm hoping to actually face up tomorrow!
I finally dyed the Ringdoll Fat Happiness to a nice chocolate tan color. It didn't turn out very even, but it's still decent for my first time dyeing a doll. I had already sanded him completely as he had a previous dye job that hadn't gone too well. The client is happy with the dye job, so now I can finally give him a face up!
What amazed me the most with the Fat Happiness is that he's a lot bigger than I thought! He's a large YoSD! Either way, I used iDye Poly in brown to get him this color. I kept increasing the timer to get all the pieces the same color roughly! It's amazing how different he looks from when he first arrived to me.
Then here's the other doll I modded today, a Resinsoul Mei in light tan/coffee color. The client only wanted me to give her fangs, they are going to try their hand at giving her a face up themselves. I was happy to do the mod for them. Once the fangs cure fully I'm going to clean up the grey on the lip.
That's it for now from me, until next time!
I only have a small update since the last time as I was really sick all of last week. I'm finally better though (not even a sniffly nose anymore!) so this week I'm resuming working on commissions!
What I was able to do was finish sanding the Ringdoll Fat Happiness to clean up an old dye attempt and prep him for a new dye job.
Here's his before and after clean up. I spent a good few days sanding him all over. It's not perfect the clean up, but he's going to get dyed dark tan again so I'm hoping that'll cover the spots I wasn't able to get clean!
I'm going to be using iDye Poly brown, which the client provided for me. I have everything else needed (like a stainless steel pot), so now I just need to give him a good rinse and dye him. Once he's dyed he's going to also get a face up.
I also got an Impldoll Isaac to paint for a friend, which I'm also hoping to knock out this week! I work awkward hours so I'm hoping to get some work done at least! I don't work Thursday (Thanksgiving), but that day is already busy with holiday prep. Either way, I'm looking forward to working on dolls again!
