I've been productive again since coming back from New York, so that's good! I started on the Impldoll Azalea and Gela heads and I'm nearing completion. I'm just waiting to hear from the client on what else they'd like me to add or if I can gloss and apply eyelashes at this point.
I'm personally happy with how they turned out so far. Both are in custom blue colors, which were an interesting challenge to work on, but also fun!
Without further ado, onto some pictures!
The first picture of the Azalea is the truest to her actual color, she's a gorgeous bright robins egg blue. The Gela is a paler blue, but still very lovely!
The Azalea arrived with a very heavy airbrushed face up that had chipped along the nose and chin, so a redo was in order. The Gela arrived with a far too pink and grey face up from the company and the client wanted her to be more blue.
Now to just wait and hear from the client!
I had a productive weekend, I got two commission face ups done! Now to get through all the others! But that'll have to wait as I'll be leaving for New York for a few days on Wednesday and need to prep a few more things.
But anyway, I painted a Nefer Kane Mini-Lynn and a Fairyland LTF Rose. Onto some pictures!
First up is the Nefer Kane Mini-Lynn I painted for a repeat client who I greatly enjoy working with. They asked me to make the blushing subtle, but with a childlike innocent expression. The head is also minuscule! A little bigger than a US quarter. It's always an interesting challenge for me to paint details on heads that small, but I did it! And the client is happy too, so success!
Then here we have the second face up I finished this weekend on the Fairyland LTF Rose in natural skin. This face up was artist choice, with the only instructions being to keep towards a cool toned color palette. I had a lot of fun with the swirls. It's not often I get to do an artist choice, I always get nervous about them because I'm not sure if the client will like it. Fortunately they liked it a lot! I hoped they would as they are a repeat client and friend as well!
I can't wait to see owner pictures of both of these! I always love owner pictures, I don't get nearly enough owner pictures from clients sent my way to display on my website. Yes, this is a subtle plea to those I've painted dolls for to send me pictures! I like to display them with credit to the their respective owners.
Now for the FYI:
My wife and I are heading to New York this upcoming week to go to the Austrian embassy to submit her application for a residency permit. Things are rolling towards the big move. I'll be sad to leave as this has been my home for 17 years, but I think it'll be a grand adventure and a good change. That means also that I won't be able to get much done doll wise this week. We'll be gone from Wednesday to Saturday. We're staying with a friend of hers that lives there.
Oh, also my birthday is coming up, in less than two weeks! I'm turning 28, so strange to think back to where I was 10 years ago. Not EVER going back to that, haha! I like who I am now, even if I haven't quite found my place in the world yet. At least I found a passion I haven't burnt out on or lost!
Until next time!
I finally got some more work done this week! I finished up the Fairyland MNF Rohan for the same client as the Impldoll Martin, and then I took some time to paint one of my own dolls that I had just recently received. She's an April Story Betty on the new SD16 body.
Anyway, onto some pictures!
First up is the Fairyland MNF Rohan in tan skin. She's meant to be a snow queen. I was given a ton of references as a mood board and I took it from there. The client loves how she looks. I just wish I could get a good shot of how nicely the lips and eyes shimmer between blue and purple. Pictures just do the work no justice... I'm excited to see some owner pictures!
And then here's my April Story Betty in normal skin. I got her secondhand and she's got a bright blue wig, so blue eyebrows and lashes were a must! Also the scar was necessary too (fell on her face as a child in some gravel trying to skateboard). I'm not entirely happy with the eyelashes, but for now the face up can stay so she's not blank. I'm over all pleased with the face up.
Quick picture of her put together. I need to trim the bangs on the wig and thin the volume out in the back. It's ridiculously fluffy, but I love the color. She also stole my Skullery necklace. Why are my dolls such thieves??
Anyway, until next time! We're supposed to get snow tomorrow, so we'll have to see if I get anymore face ups done!
I finally finished the body blush on the LoongSoul 73.5cm V2 body in normal skin! He only needed a neck mod, torso blush, manicure, pedicure, and all 5 of his man bits needed blushing. I'll post those as a link with a warning so that you don't randomly scroll to see a bunch of realistically blushed penises.
Anyway, onto some pictures!
I'm very proud of how the blushing turned out on this massive boy. Now for the links of the peens:
Peen Picture 1 - Peen Picture 2
Click at your own discretion, they are in various stages of arousal so to say!
I am so glad this commission is finally done! Here's a list of everything I did for the clients (they are a couple and sent their dolls together):
Impldoll Martin on SGB Male Idol body
This commission took forever, but I'm glad they are done. I packed them up with extra bubble wrap to protect the blushing, but now the box doesn't fit in the shipping box anymore. Fortunately I have some spare boxes I can hopefully use. If they aren't big enough, I'll franken a box together to ship them in.
That's all from me for now! As long as the weather gets nice today I should be able to crank out another face up!
