I've been a busy bee this past week! I received a large commission the previous week and was able to sit down this week and start on it. It included a Doll in Mind Flowne, a Miracle Doll 44cm Jing, two Flower & Junior Mizi.W heads, and a Resinsoul Sui and Nian. The two Resinsoul dolls also get fantasy parts and body blushes.
So far I've I've finished the floating heads, and have restrung the RS Sui as well as sueded him. He also sustained a broken finger in transit, so I fixed that too.
Without further ado, onto some pictures!
Here is the Doll in Mind Flowne in white skin. Her theme was pink (clearly), and to paint a heart on one of her cheeks. I had a lot of fun with her! She came with a face up already that had sadly chipped, so I tried to recreate it with my own touch.
Then here we have the two Flower & Junior Mizi.W heads in white skin. They are sisters but with opposite color schemes. The client wanted fantasy face ups for them, but sans swirls as their child is scared of them. So I did some dots instead into the eyeshadow. The client is happy with the work and so am I!
And last, but certainly not least, is the Miracle Doll Jing 44cm in normal skin. Her color scheme is white and blue and coming up with a way of doing fantasy sans swirls and working around the additional 3 eye holes was a challenge. At one point I had to wipe what I'd done as fantasy because it was simply waaaay too much. Sometimes less really is more!
Now for the FYI:
I start a new job on Monday, it is a full time position with 40 hours a week. I'm really looking forward to it! But that also means that my turn around rate will go up due to only being able to paint on weekends. Please bear with me as I adjust to a new schedule. I will do my best to still get your dears back to you as soon as I can!
Until next time!
It's been a while since I've updated the site, so I cleaned up the example gallery a little, removing older face ups to keep the rest more up to date to my current skill level. I also repainted my Fairyland LTF Dark Elf Soo in tan skin because her old face up had bothered me for a while... I'll get to the FYI after the face up pictures.
Here's my little cutie! I actually had to start over 2/3 of the way through the face up because I hated how her blushing was coming out. It looked like she'd gotten sunburnt! But that is a shame that I did not document with photos, so let's just sweep that failure under the rug to be forgotten forever.
Here's the comparison of her previous to current face up. I've owned her since 2013 I think (got her secondhand), and her last face up was on her for a good 4 years, so it was time to redo it. What was entertaining was that she has yellowed in that time, except under her old eyebrows. I'm not the most careful with my own dolls, but commissions I treat with waaaay more respect than my own because I don't care if my dolls yellow. But I don't want to do that to a client's doll!
Anyway, onto the FYI:
I'm closing new commissions for the moment because I have so many multipart ones incoming that I want to devote my time to. I'd rather keep my turn around time as it is while I'm looking for a full time job here again. I will make a blog post and update the landing page of my site when I'm ready to take on more again!
That is all for now, until next time!
