New Work - June 19th, 2017
I managed to complete another face up this last weekend while also packing up the apartment/our life. We've made great progress in the last 3 days. But anyway, the face up I did was on a Doll Chateau Zora in the old white skin. I was given artist choice, so I used a warm toned color palette.
Anyway, onto some pictures!
I decided to go with a gold theme for her and mimic the embossing on the body with the painting. I'm rather happy with the outcome! I really like the gold theme I got going here. I didn't paint the body, but the client was fine with that. It would have taken too long.
In other news, packing is going well. It took 4 of us 2.5-3 hours to pack up all of my wife's and my dolls. We have 28 dolls between us, of which 12 are SD and larger (from 58cm to 100cm), 6 MSD, 7 YoSD, and 3 tinies. Only one doll is getting to stay out and not travel per shipping container, which is my DC Snow Nymph. She's coming on the plane with me!
This is what 28 dolls getting ready for a huge move look like. Three bins, and countless pieces of bubble wrap later and they are all secure and ready to go. Mel looks very smug up there. Our stuff is getting picked up for the shipping container on Friday. We got this!
Until next time!
FYI + New Work - June 13, 2017
I've been (figuratively) sitting on new work since the weekend, but didn't get to posting a blog 'til now. I managed to finish up a face up, body blush, and fantasy parts blush on a LoongSoul White Tiger Ye in white skin. I was given artist choice to revamp the little guy. So I did a Lisa Frank inspired leopard boy.
I'll go over the FYI after the pictures. Now let's begin!
For some reason, LoongSoul didn't embed the magnets for the ears in the resin, so they have to be taped on. The spots all shimmer in their respective colors, and I brushed shimmer powders all over the fantasy parts too. He's radiant to say the least! I can't wait to see what the owner will do with him.
Here's a full body shot of him with a (terrible) mohair wig I made myself on him.
Anyway, now for the FYI:
It's no secret that I'm moving to Austria at the end of this month (June 26th to be exact). I'm shipping all my face up supplies and other items per shipping container. That sadly means that I won't be able to work on any dolls for about 2 months, because the time is 6-8 weeks. I'm only taking one doll with me to have while I get settled, the rest of them are going in the shipping container.
I'll need to revamp some things on the site for that then, which I'll do once I'm in Austria. I might even change the layout of the website! I've been debating it a while now since I haven't updated the site layout in years!
Anyway, that's all from me for now, until next time!
