I managed to whip up a quick face up on my wife's Soom MD Wolf Knight Romantic (human) head this weekend because his character changed. He's no longer a righteous blond paladin, now he's a sassy purple-haired telepathic lawyer. Obviously that meant he needed a new face up to embody that character.
Anyway, onto some pictures!
I recently got more watercolor paints and one of the colors is a plum purple, which came in super handy when I worked on this face up. I did mix some more blue and white into it to match the wig better. I had to trim the eyelashes big time as they were 8mm long, and that just didn't suit him.
He looks so different in each picture, but I promise that's the same head. It's amazing what a difference a face up can make.
And now for a picture of him all put together.
I did another face up today, this one for my SO on her Soom MD Wolf Knight Romantic (human) head in normal skin. His wig just arrived yesterday that I bought him for his character and my SO finally decided to have me redo him when the grey Soom default face up just didn't work with it.
I'm finally getting the hang of mixing blonde colors for eyelashes and eyebrow hairs, I've always had difficulties with that when I switching from using pencils to paint. I'm quite pleased with the end result of him.
Here's his before and after picture as well. The default Soom face up was nicely detailed, but waaay too bland on colors. The grey lips would have been fine on a white skin head, but not on a normal skin one.
Bonus picture of his (unstyled) wig. It's going to need some brushing and careful styling to lay properly, but at least it fits. A friend of ours has him too, and she's been having an awful time finding him a wig that fits and she likes.
My SO's boy is finally going to get a body in about 2 months (it's on layaway and still being made). I can't wait to see him put together!
