This "weekend" I worked on the tiny heads on my to do list. One is the final redo I did on the LumeDoll Blaze. The other is a Fairyland Chicline Rou. I'll be taking and posting better detail shots soon!
Here's the LumeDoll Blaze in tan skin first. He looks a lot less startled than last time. I enjoyed repainting him honestly. I feel like I improved in 11 face ups since the last time I painted him!
Now this guy is a Fairyland Chicline Rou in normal skin. His owner described him to me as a bit of a Diva and wanted me to paint him in a gothic style and provided me with a few examples. The lips do have more red in them and I'll take some better pictures of him soon. His head is about as tiny as the LumeDoll above!
Out of all the heads I had for painting I only managed to complete 2 this weekend. The reason is that when I tried to go on Monday to my old college to use the facilities it was closed due to the holiday. It was kind of frustrating driving all the way up there just to have to turn around and go back home. Also work was hellish this last week, so here's to hoping this week is better!
Anyway, onto the new face ups. One is a brand new one, the other is a redo because due to my own stupidity of spraying outside while it was humid the face up started flaking off... I have one more redo which I'll tackle this week along with everything else I got to do.
First up is my SO's Soom MD R. Rico head that's been blank since around Christmas time. Since it was her birthday yesterday I painted her for her. I finally also figured out how to color blonde eyebrows/lashes.
Painting all of those scales took forever because I ran out of paint after 4 scales so I kept having to re-dip my brush. I might still work into her later again because her wig covers all the scales.
Then here we have the redo face up, I have one more to do and then I can send him and his friend back to their owner. This one is the same Souldoll Vito Lester I worked on last time as well. I actually like his eyebrows a lot better this time around. Now here's to hoping the owner agrees!
I finally documented the two previous face ups I posted, and did 3 more! That means I have a lot of pictures to post into this blog post.
First up is the Doll Family-A Fox in white skin. He was a lot of fun to work on and very simple too. I like how he turned out.
Second is my little sea monkey Pearl who is a Dollzone Dale on the human body in normal skin pink. She turned out a lot more elaborate than I though. Maybe she's a princess of sea monkeys?
Then we have a Dollshe Pabo in oriental skin. I really like the feel of Dollshe resin, it reminds me of Limhwa almost!
Finally last, but not least, we have the OE and SA heads of a Dollshe Ausley. I still have to blush her bust and her hands, but then she's fully done as well. Very lovely doll, I'm glad I got to work on one!
I'm also 1 face up away from 160, then I will FINALLY post my face up collage again. It's been forever since I've posted one...
On my weekend I did finally manage to have some time to face up, but I only managed to do 2 out of many I need to do.
The first I did is a fox face up on a Doll Family-A Fox. I still need to document him properly, but have a preview image! He's in white skin and this was him freshly glossed on my table.
And then I took a short break to paint my Christmas doll I got from my SO. She is a Dollzone Dale on the human body in normal skin pink. I'll still need to work on her body, but that won't be until I'm done with all of my commissions.
Both face ups still need to be documented to be properly added as examples. I'm hoping to soon work on the rest of the commissions I have accumulated.
2014 is officially over and it is now 2015. Wow, what a year it's been! This year I only completed 50 face ups (but I did a lot of body work too), while last year I did 56. That's okay, I still have a few heads with me to paint that I couldn't get to before my one week vacation.
Either way, time to show off my favorite face ups for each month of last year!
My doll family also expanded by quite a bit. I'm at 17 dolls right now and one of them needs a face up, and a few others need a redo.
The vacation was nice, I had a very good Christmas with my SO and her family. For Christmas dinner most of her family came over so we were at 25 people and I made 10 pounds of mashed potatoes. Not much was left over after that many people. It was all good.
Anyway, here's to 2015 being a great year!
