Hello and welcome back to the blog on my website! Today's update features everything I completed this past October of 2023, and boy it's quite a bit!! Seven faceups and four sets of hands.
This blog entry is special as it features my 600th faceup, and I am just so proud of my progress the last 12 years since I've started painting dolls. Basically I average 50 faceups a year at this rate, though my faceup output has definitely decreased the past couple of years, as I've taken on a lot of body aesthetic commissions as well. I will post about that though in December when I wrap up this year.
Either way, today I will share a Fairyland RealFee Toki and a Coco, a Resinsoul Ai, a Telesthesia Doll XunYiChao, a Smart Doll Chaos G07 head, a Fairyland Feeple60 Mirwen with 2 sets of hands, a set of Fairyland Minifee hands, and a Doll Leaves Theresa along with a pair of her hands.
Onto some pictures and ramblings under the break!
Hello everyone and happy midway through September! I've been a busy bee this past month and I'll be sharing a few things from August. In August I spent more time digitally drawing than painting dolls, but for that I did get some things doll-wise done too.
Things to share is a Dream Valley Bor from my personal collection, a Luts Kid Delf Summer Event head from 2017, my Simply Divine Thomas, and the Soom SG Obsidius Archangel wings from the "Ode, an der Abgrund" release.
So without further ado, onto the pictures under the break!
First things first, I want to thank all of you for sticking with me these past 2 months of hardly any updating. There's been a bad heatwave followed by a rough cold snap, and now the weather keeps changing from sunny to storming within the same day and it's done a number on my head (I suffer from migraines).
Anyway, I did get a few things done still in July that I wanted to share here. I managed to complete 3 faceups and two little Baby Mossling figures by Goblin Tales BJD. The faceups are on a Soom Heliot from the free choice event in 2011, a Soom Obsidius from this year (2023), and the redo on the MYOU 1/6 scale Gina.
Without further ado, onto some pictures under the cut!
I'm a little late to posting the work of June, but as they say, better late than never!
I was a busy bee this past month, completing 4 faceups, a full body blush, an extensive chest and arm tattoo and some fantasy parts.
One faceup (MYOU 1/6 Gina) I cannot show as the sealant bubbled right before I took documentation pictures. I did document it, but wiped it shortly after. I will redo it during this month, the client is alright with this.
Anyway, on the list to share is a Dream Valley Apocalypse Horseman Withered, a YBee Doll Nora and her body, and last but not least is a Luts Kid Delf Zuzu Corni, her fantasy parts (ears and tail), and her body (Luts KDF Girl Romantic Body), which also received a mani/pedicure.
So without ado, onto the pictures and ramblings under the cut!
Another month done with, and a couple of new pieces to share!
May was a hectic and stressful month, but I still managed to do a couple of faceups. I only managed 3 as I had very few commissions come in last month, but hey, better some than none! I was also sick a lot May and had a lot of extra things to do, so I'm glad I was able to do something creative.
I painted one of those cute Penny's Blind Box Antu Centaurs (Ponder/Thought), a LatiDoll Blue Rucas, and an Iplehouse J.I.D Sierra. Without further ado, onto the pictures and rambles under the read more break!
It's May, so now I am gonna post the completed work from April, but before I get into that I wanted to go over the FYI.
The cost of living has gone up horribly this year along with my rent, so I needed to increase my prices as well. Please see Commission & Prices for the new costs. All estimates I have already provided are valid and won't be changed.
Commissions are still open, so feel free to contact me for a quote or a slot!
Now with the FYI out of the way, let's cover what aesthetics I did the last month. I worked on a Dollzone Po, an Iplehouse EID Gentle Akando, a pair of Miracle Doll 1/4 girl feet, a Dollmore Kid Sona, and a pair of Fairyland MNF Roller Skates.
Without further ado, onto some pictures under the break!
It's been a hot minute since I've posted on here. I have quite a bit of work to share since I had Covid-19 again the first two weeks of August. I have been posting the collages to the Examples section here, along with some new owner pics as well.
Despite this run of Covid being mild, it still fatigued me horribly and it's taken me quite a while to get back into the swing of working on commissions. I have finished 5 faceups, 2 body blushes, and some fantasy parts since then.
Today I will only share the work I still completed in August, otherwise it's just too long of a blog post. Things to share are a Fairyland MNF Alicia, a Popovy Sisters Blue Jay and her body, and a Soom Heliot Fantasy head from the Cosmos release.
Without further ado, onto the pictures and ramblings under the break!
Another month (July) has come and gone, and I have a couple of new faceups to show. I have sadly been sick with the plague, again, but at least it is a mild run of it.
While I've been recovering from Covid I have been slowly working on my own dolls, as I do not want to germ all over commissions. Today I'm gonna go and get retested to see if I am still contagious or not.
Anyway, dolls to post are a Dream Valley Abu, a Faewoods Dolls Freesia, a MYOU DouDou and a Dollzone April.
So without further ado, onto some pictures under the break!
Thank you so much to everyone that took advantage of my birthday sale, it makes me really happy to have such a positive response. You guys are really making me feel loved! I am about to close slots again until I work through all these commissions that are incoming. I have the best clients I swear!
Anyway, I have a lot of new work to show! Today I will show the detail shots of the Dream Valley Zhao and his fantasy parts, a set of Doll Family-H SD sized male jointed hands, a Lillycat Lyse, my MYOU DouDou, a Felix Doll Brownie NeNe, and a Dollzone Miss Kitty and her ears.
Without further ado, onto some pictures under the read more break!
It's been a good while since I have posted a blog entry here, so it's time to amend that! I have been a busy bee since the last post, and I started a new full time job. Currently I am still finding the balance between doing commissions and working full time, so please bear with me. I will be opening slots come April, since I am making good progress through my current commissions.
Dolls I will show today are a Resinsoul Ju, a Doll Leaves Lan, a small MissNekotaku Chibihana, and to finish posting the faceups for February I will also post my Limhwa EOS Nina. This month so far I have finished two faceups, and I have a couple more on my desk to complete. Once that is all done, I will reopen slots.
So without further ado, onto the pictures below 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!
It is that time again to post new faceups I've completed the past month. I've also closed for new slots for the time being as I have a lot of commissions to get through, for which I am very grateful! Once I get down to only two remaining commissions, I will reopen slots.
I'm currently working on 3 heads at once on my desk, most of which are natural based so it should take too long to get those done. Another multipart commission arrived this morning while I was faceupping, so that is exciting too.
As for the FYI, I have restructured how I price my faceups. Instead of charging based on the doll's height, I am going to go off head size, as I should have ages ago. When I first started faceupping, most dolls had the same head sizes within their respective ranges, but now there is so much variety that I needed to clarify my pricing. That way I won't be over- or under-charging for the work that goes into my faceups.
I am of course honoring all the current estimates that I have already accepted. To get a better idea of my pricing, please head on over to the Commission & Prices page.
Anyway, today I will show the faceups I completed in January 2022. Sculpts to show are a Popovy Sisters Blue Jay, twin Doll Family-A, and a Moonlight Jewel Dolls Aylean. Pictures and commentary are under the read more break!
I was busy in November, and now in December too, so I got a couple of new things to show! I repainted my Lost Chronicles Allurial, and two commission faceups on a Faewoods Dolls Orchidaceae and an Immortality of Soul (old) Jaguar.
I have a good start on my remaining commissions as well, so those should be done soon once the weather stops pouring rain or being too humid.
Anyway, without further ado, onto some pictures below the break!
As promised, here is the second blog post showcasing the remainder of the work I've gotten done this month. I have everything packed up and ready to go home now, with address labels and custom forms.
Today to show I have a Fantasy Doll Amber which I dyed and painted, a Goblin Tales Baby Mossling, a Flower & Junior Mizi.W, and my Dollzone April.
Without further ado, onto some pictures under the break!
I have been such a busy bee this past month, and have lots of new work to show. So much in fact that I will need to split them up over two blog posts as to not be utterly overwhelming. It really is a lot!
Today I will show my Volks YoSD Ayumu, a Dollshe Molly, and my Resinsoul Ai, who is my 500th completed faceup.
This also means I will post my giant faceup collage. I will need to start a new one!
Without further ado, onto the pictures under the cut!
