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!
