I finally got around to color matching and face upping a head from a friend. I can't remember what body she's on, but it definitely did not match the paper white head on it. The only guidelines I was given were color matching to the body and a fantasy face up.
The head is an artist cast Sweet Dolls Alice, so she's not a perfect cast. You can see at the head cap how white this head really is.
Here's a cruddy cell phone picture of her on her body. The color match is pretty spot on. I don't know how to use an airbrush, so I did it all with pastels.
Now that it's March I'm open for commissions again! I've already knocked out two heads for commission. I also redid my Mystic Kids Miri (again), but she looks better than ever! But first I'll show my commissions.
First up is a Sweet Dolls Aiden in normal pink skin. The head is technically a boy one, but the owner has it on a girl body, so girly face up it is! She also is a redhead and I was asked to put freckles on her, so I did. She turned out pretty cute.
Next up is a Fairyland MNF Ante in tan skin. Fairyland tan is to die for, it's such a pretty color! The eyebrows are a dark grey because her wig is silver. She keeps going wonky eyed on me, so I'll need to fix that, again.
And then last, but certainly not least, is my own Mystic Kids Miri in normal pink skin. I've been wanting to do a galaxy themed face up for ages. I'm really happy with how she turned out. Her last face up was just too plain and disgruntled looking.
I'm not sure whether I'll keep her name (Jolene) or change it. So far I still call her Jolene, but I'm not sure if it's "fancy" enough for a fallen star. Either way I'm super pleased with her face up now.
Now to de-yellow the Dollshe Saint I got hanging out so I can paint him too. And of course the PukiFee faceplate needs to be painted as well.
I finally finished working on the Sweet Dolls Fairy Alexa the other day and finally documented the work. I'm just worried about getting it back to the owner because I have no contact info for her. She handed her to me at the last doll meet, and I tried to get the day off from work for the next one, but I was denied. So now I need to try and get one of my local friends who can go to take her with and return her to the owner (she already paid me).
Now for some pictures!
In other news, a pipe burst in two places in my apartment the other day, so a lot of my stuff is MIA in the mess from shoving everything into one corner. The radiator spewed hot water all over the carpet, so currently we have a giant hold in our wall, and a flying carpet due to it being dried now. So art is on hold for now, but I do have all my face up stuff accounted for so that shouldn't be a problem.
It's also bitter cold again, so I'm going to have a hard time getting the DC Dolores done with the college being closed today to non-students. I kinda need that so I can spray MSC safely. I might try the airbrush method since I have one, just no clue how to use it!
