I finally was able to finish one of my more difficult commissions, lots of first things to be done for me as a face up artist with this one! The commission consisted of working on a Dollclans Vezeto in normal skin and an Iplehouse SID male torso in special real skin.
The work that needed to be done was extensive. I had to mod the neck smaller by about 1.5cm (first neck mod ever for me), color match the head to the torso, blush the torso and paint body hair, and then finally also a face up on the head. The color match alone took me 3 days to do as I did it all with pastels. I sadly don't know how to use an airbrush.
Either way, onto some pictures!
First up is the head, he's quite a few shades darker now than when he came to me. I struggled with the color match because I started it too orange, so I kept on having to put layers of light blue over it to tone it down. It turned out a little dark, but it's much better than before I blushed him! In the last picture you can see his headcap as a comparison.
Then here we have the body, or rather the torso of an Iplehouse SID male body in special real skin. The mod took quite a while to do too, and I had to use my dremel to get anywhere with it. Once I had it almost small enough I finished it off with sand paper.
I spent roughly 3-4 hours on the body hair alone. This is only the second time I've done body hair so far! Entertainingly enough, both times the clients asked for unnatural colors; blue for the first one, and wine red for this one.
And here we have the comparison of the head before and after color matching and face upping. What a difference! Here you can see that the head ended up being a little too dark, but I feel it's an acceptable difference. I definitely under charged for the color matching as I didn't realize how long and intensive it was going to be...
Anyway, I'm glad he's done! Now onto my next commissions!
