This weekend I managed to finish not one, but two face ups! They're both from one client and I have one more to do for them before I'm fully done with the job. I worked so far on an April Story Lilian and a Doll Love YiYi. They both are supposed to be rather cute, which I was happy to do!
Anyway, onto some pictures!
First up is the April Story Lilian in normal skin, which is also the first April Story doll I've ever worked on. The sculpting is very nice, though she does have some very prominent canine teeth. Not that they're ugly or anything, they're just much more forward than the rest of her sculpted teeth. Either way, she was lovely to work on.
And then here we have the Doll Love YiYi in normal pink skin. I really like her cute little smile! She came with a chipped default face up, which is why the client wanted me to redo her for her. Basically the guidelines for her were pink and cute. She fought me a little on her eyelashes while painting them, but I won in the end!
Now for the FYI:
My hours are going to be increasing at work, so I'll have less time to work on dolls as I'll be working more. That means I may have to take on less commissions, but we will see. One of the 3 receptionists (including me) is going on maternity leave by the end of this week, so I'll be taking over some of her hours.
It can also mean that my turn around time for multipart commissions is going to increase as I'll have to figure out how to manage my free time all over again to divide it into chill and commission work time.
I just figured I'd give you guys a heads up! That's all for now from me, until next time when I have more to show!
