I have discontinued my face up book at this time (Face Up Handbook) because the technique in it is very outdated to how I work now. The basic principle is there, but the skill level is no where near where I'm at now.
I am working on a new face up book now and I plan on bringing it out as an ebook and a physical copy as well. I will be publishing it probably though Createspace because I can name my own price without having to worry about production cost. I've been using the Blurb platform for it because it's really nice. I've got a good chunk of it done, but the face ups are still missing from it. That's right, it won't be just one face up, it'll be three. I have one face up documented for it, but I might not use that one and wait to get another commission for a goth face up because I don't like the lighting in the shots. Either way I'm hoping to have it ready by summer.
In other news, I managed to pick up a few commissions locally. I have now two dolls to work on, a Doll Chateau Dolores and a Sweet Dolls Fairy Line Alexa. I already got the face up done on the Dolores, but his body blush is going to take forever because he's so big. I'll be working on the fairy first because she'll be simple. She's technically a 1/6 scale, but with MSD proportions. She's also a 3D print, which I've never worked on before. It'll be interesting.
Anyway, onto some pictures of the DC Dolores!
He's really handsome and fun to work on. I love the contours of his face, they are very pretty. Almost makes me wish I had one in my collection, but only almost. A friend of mine owns him so I can play with him basically at any point really that we meet up at.
