Hello all! It's been a hot minute since I last posted, not for lack of having you content to post, but rather I had a lot of errangs and appointments these past couple of weeks. I am so grateful for everyone that commissioned me through my birthday sale last month, it's been a tremendous boost of confidence and joy!
I am still expecting a few commissions to come in, therefore I am still keeping my slots closed for now.
But in better news, I have a lot of new things to share! I have an Asleep Eidolon Agnes in SD scale, a Doll Family-A Auriel, a Dollzone Ivana set of wings, a Luts KDF Summer Event 2013 head, and a set of Smart Doll hands.
Without further ado, onto some pictures under the read more break!
I've been super productive this month, not only did I do 6 faceups, but I also finished a manicure, a gender mod, and the long leg tattoos on a long-time commission. I feel pretty good about all the work I've done so far! I will break up the work into a couple of posts over the next few days, or the post will just go on forever.
The little FYI I want to cover is that I am going to start charging for old faceup removal, as that takes a lot of effort and time, and even materials. I sometimes sit as long as 1.5 hours at removing a faceup thoroughly so I can do my own. Charges start at €5, and can go up if the faceup is hard to remove. Thank you for understanding!
Anyway, sculpts I will show today are a Napalm Doll Hush and her hands, an Asleep Eidolon Agnes (who got the gender mod from angel to girl body), and a Dollmore Judith Zinna. Let's hop on under the read more break for the pictures!
I have finished quite a few faceups recently, so I have a lot to share today! A couple are for myself, and some commissions too. My slots are still open, and I have only a couple more to get through before I can send this batch back.
Faceups today are on an Asleep Eidolon Col, LoongSoul Black Dragon Xunalong, then 2 Smart Doll Cortex heads, and a Lost Chronicles Allurial.
The Loongsoul and the Lost Chronicle heads are both for me.
Without further ado, onto some pictures under the break!
I'm not yet dead, though I'm pretty sick and have been since Sunday, but I felt better yesterday and the weather was nice so I adventured to MCAD to work on some commissions. I completed 3 heads; a Mystic Kids Christina, Mystic Kids Elisa Elf, and an Asleep Eidolon Peppermint. All of them got natural face ups so it didn't take too long to do all of them, just the whole morning. Also Mystic Kids must use sealant of the gods, their face ups do NOT come off without a fight. It took me an hour to get all the heads clean.
I'm still experimenting with the new eyelash technique and the eyebrow detail application since I've only recently started using watercolors rather than applying the watercolor pencils directly. It's a lot less grainy, but I still have a long way to go. I'm happy with it so far though.
These are also the first face ups of 2014! Woo! My shops been open 2 years now. I opened shop in January 2012, so this is exciting. I've come a long way since my first commission in actually 2011, but I didn't start actively taking commissions until January 2012. Since then I've completed over 80 commissioned face ups. That's pretty good if you ask me, I have done some freebies and I'm thinking of holding again a freebie raffle on my Tumblr. More details later.
