I know, I know... the title is lame, but it's relevant to the new face up I did! Yesterday and today I got to work on a Dearmine Dune in white skin. So far I got his face and ears done, and still need to do his claws on his hands and feet. I will update again once I finish those with detail pictures of the ears, hands, and feet.
Anyway, onto some pictures!
He belongs to a very good friend of mine and is meant to look like a lynx. She loves the way the face up turned out and can't wait to get him home. Soon!
In other news my workplace is offering me more hours next week, so I'm going to have to shuffle around my face up work time a little. I'll still get everything done of course, I just won't be able to do it in one sitting as usual.
I finished up the last face up that I started on August 8th, 2015. I experimented a little with it and it ended up being very very sparkly... Not that that's a bad thing, but I'm still trying to decide if I like it or not. Fortunately it's on one of my own dolls, so I can always redo it later.
Anyway, the sculpt is a Fairyland LTF Juri 2013 that I received in a trade with a customer (who is a total sweetheart by the way). She promptly stole my Chiwoo Elf Girl's body, so I may end up selling those FP's as I already sold a few others of my dolls. On to some pictures!
I went a little overboard with my shimmer powder (I mixed it into gloss and the sealed it down again to get rid of the shine and just keep the shimmer), which is why I'm not sure if I like it or not. I wish I hadn't put them onto her eyelashes because I loved how those had turned out. Oh well. I'll give the face up a few days and see if I figure out whether I like it or not!
I actually finished the face up yesterday in the afternoon. I would have done more work this morning, but it was raining and I didn't have time to get to my back up place to face up on rainy/humid days. Still need to finish another part of a commission by Sunday. It'll be a little tricky as I work 6 days this week (Monday - Saturday), but I will manage it!
Yesterday was a busy day for me! I worked on 3 heads, of which I completed 2 and the third is about halfway done.
The top two are done, the bottom one is not but it's too humid this morning to face up and my back up place (old college) isn't open 'til noon today. That's where I was yesterday too, but after working from 9am to 3pm I realized I was very very hungry, so I had to stop for the day.
This one is a Garden of Dolls Narah in light tan/coffee skin. It was interesting working on a sculpt with such prominent lips. I was asked to make her eyes look bigger and to give her freckles, the rest was up to me. She's a fawn and I'll be working on her body soon as well, just need to blush the hooves! I also realized when I was editing the pictures that she's derp eyed... oops!
Then here we have another Resinsoul Mei, but this time in fleshtone and with a natural face up. Now I just need to restring her body as she's very floppy. It's kind of funny how both completed face ups from yesterday ended up with freckles.
Hopefully soon I'll be able to finish my own Fairyland LTF Juri 2013 faceplate (which I started yesterday). She's going to be a little half dragon girl and will be super cute (I hope) once done.
That's all for now!
I did it, guys! I got to 200 face ups after 4 years since my first one. I've been in the face up business for 3.5 years, but this is a monumental number for me.
My first face up was started in July of 2011, and finally completed in August (a good friend of mine was showing me how to face up) of the same year. So yeah, it literally took me 4 years to get to 200.
Anyway, enough jabbering and onto some pictures!
This is my third face up on my Resinsoul Ai head. The first face up I gave her was also my first face up in general. The second one was my 100th face up, and now this one is my 200th. Now I just need to get another 99 face ups done so I can redo her as my 300th!
It's such fun seeing how much I've improved over the years. I also want to post my latest collage update now that I have 200 face ups on it. It's been a while since I posted it last!
Thank you for going on this great journey with me everyone. And now back to commissions! Until next time!
