The Doll Love Evol is finally done now, and I love the way she turned out. I'm still waiting on approval for her so that I can mail her home.
She was a lot of fun to work on, and I finally tried the whole "stick cotton balls into the eye sockets" thing, so no stray pastel dust went into the head. It works great, I wish I had found that out sooner!
Also I need to take the eyes out of her, those are mine. The commissioner did not include eyes or wig for her.
I finished up two face ups yesterday, and have one more to go today along with a body blush and a few tattoos. I will tackle that as soon as my feet are relaxed and I've had some lunch. Plus I need to go to the post office.
Anyway, onto the dolls that I finished up yesterday. A Hujoo Freyr, and a Soom MD Shale.
First up is the Hujoo Freyr. He's getting shipped to Lithuania today. I just need to rest a little before I go to the post office.
Second we have the Soom MD Shale. I was asked to give him a concerned look and to keep the blushing very soft and gentle. I should post a picture of him with his wig on, he's really cute.
Here's an in progress shot of one of the commissions I'm working on. The weather's been atrocious to face up at home and will remain so for the next week (rain rain and more rain). Anyway, I need to do some changes on the face up above (Hujoo Freyr), but that's okay. Also the eye holder things don't really work so I stuck some eyes in with putty. Such a strange little doll.
Now I better finish my breakfast and flit off to work. Thanks to everyone for being so patient with me this past month.
You're probably wondering what the hell the title of this blog entry means, well let me explain. All this week at work we've been prepping for mother's day because we make the most sales that day/week of. On Saturday I worked for a good 11 hours straight preparing for Sunday (mother's day). I ended up with 5 blisters on two fingers.
The good news is, it's done and over with, school is done, so now I can finish up those commissions I've had with me. I want to get them done and back to their owners as soon as possible. Thanks for your patience!
Oh! And my DZ Miss Kitty arrived safe and sound. She's a wig thief.
She's super cute even blank, but I'm not painting her until I get all my commissions done. That's a really good incentive for me, not like I need one to get the commissions done. I love painting dolls after all.
I've been trying to knock out my last few commissions, but other things have gotten in the way, and now it's snowing again. The weather was so beautiful and now it's cold and icky once more. So that means I'll have to face up at school again until things warm up again.
I will get the commissions done, thank you for your patience with me. I can't wait until school is done and mother's day is over so I can devote more time to dolls again. I love painting them.
Oh! I traded one of my dolls (Mudoll Brownie Nene fullset) for a Dollzone Miss Kitty. I've had my eyes on her for a while but didn't have the spare funds to get her, so I snatched her up on the DoA MP in a trade. She's arriving today. I can't wait! I'm also still waiting on my Impldoll Aldrich. All in due time.
