New Work - May 23rd, 2018
This month has been exceptionally slow for commissions, but that's okay! There's always next month too, where I have some commissions lined up already.
Anyway, the new work I got to show is one for myself, and one was a commission from a dear friend! My own is a Doll in Mind Gayane in normal skin, who'd been a gift from a friend before I left the USA. The commission is a Youlpa Dolls Zenji in normal skin.
Without further ado, onto some pictures!
First up the commission, the Youlpa Dolls Zenji in normal skin, I think at least. He's meant to look like he hasn't slept in ages, and lives off of coffee and caffeine in general. It was a lot of fun to give him mighty eyebrows and eye circles. That's why I love commissions, I get to paint things on dolls I'd never think of doing with my own even! He's a floating head currently, but my friend is saving up for a body for him.
Then here's Autumn, my Doll in Mind Gayane. She's got quite the history being a gift from a friend! She'd been her first doll, after I snared her into the hobby. She fell out of love with her and decided to gift her to me shortly before my move. My wife and I were going to take her with us on the plane as all our stuff had already been mailed by that point, including all but one of our other dolls.
We hit some big snafu's on the flight, like our carry-ons being too heavy, so we had to check one of them. One of our suitcases was too heavy as well so we had to leave a bunch of stuff behind with a friend, one of them being Autumn. My friend finally was able to mail her back to me this past month, but her head-cap wasn't included. She hasn't found it yet, so while she searches, I made her one out of Fimo and magnets to tide her over.
Here's her before and after I repainted her. She had had a default face up, which was pretty, but it's no secret I have to paint all my own dolls or I can't bond with them. I'm slowly working on modding her body to be better functioning.
The DiM Happy Glamour Body is... janky at best. I restrung her with fresh elastic, and elongated the elastic slots on her thighs. Next up is hollowing out her hip sockets so she stops rocking back on her butt and finally sits up straight. I've never done mobility mods like this before, so it's kind of exciting!
Anyway, this is all for now! I'm still open for commission as my slots aren't filled. I'm itching to paint more dolls! Maybe I'll repaint my Fairyland LTF DES next...
Until next time!
New Work - May 6th, 2018
I was a busy bee again. I painted my April Story Betty's other arm (just one tattoo though, not a whole sleeve this time), and I finally had a commission come in, an Angell Studio Hong Yu in normal pink skin. I have a couple more commissions lined up, just waiting on them to be shipped my way!
Anyway, without further ado, onto some pictures!
Here's my April Story NB-SD16 body's right arm with a lovely tattoo of a mermaid. That tattoo is so small as the arm is 1/3 scale! I used a mechanical pencil for the lines, and the colors were added with pastels and a little bit of watercolor pencils. I'm really happy with the outcome!
Just a small shot of what I've customized on her. I'm still debating adding some tattoos to her hips to peek out above her pants. I think that would look cute, maybe some jellyfish?
And here we have the Angell Studio Hong Yu. I'm really happy with how she came out. I was working with the client in real time to get the face up as close to their vision as I could. They sent me several screenshots of their character, and I feel she's really close! I also made her some eyes real quick while the client searches for the perfect eyes for her!
That's all from me for now, until next time!
