New Work + FYI
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!
First Face Ups of 2014!
I'm not yet dead, though I'm pretty sick and have been since Sunday, but I felt better yesterday and the weather was nice so I adventured to MCAD to work on some commissions. I completed 3 heads; a Mystic Kids Christina, Mystic Kids Elisa Elf, and an Asleep Eidolon Peppermint. All of them got natural face ups so it didn't take too long to do all of them, just the whole morning. Also Mystic Kids must use sealant of the gods, their face ups do NOT come off without a fight. It took me an hour to get all the heads clean.
I'm still experimenting with the new eyelash technique and the eyebrow detail application since I've only recently started using watercolors rather than applying the watercolor pencils directly. It's a lot less grainy, but I still have a long way to go. I'm happy with it so far though.
These are also the first face ups of 2014! Woo! My shops been open 2 years now. I opened shop in January 2012, so this is exciting. I've come a long way since my first commission in actually 2011, but I didn't start actively taking commissions until January 2012. Since then I've completed over 80 commissioned face ups. That's pretty good if you ask me, I have done some freebies and I'm thinking of holding again a freebie raffle on my Tumblr. More details later.
