I finally was able to finish one of my more difficult commissions, lots of first things to be done for me as a face up artist with this one! The commission consisted of working on a Dollclans Vezeto in normal skin and an Iplehouse SID male torso in special real skin.
The work that needed to be done was extensive. I had to mod the neck smaller by about 1.5cm (first neck mod ever for me), color match the head to the torso, blush the torso and paint body hair, and then finally also a face up on the head. The color match alone took me 3 days to do as I did it all with pastels. I sadly don't know how to use an airbrush.
Either way, onto some pictures!
First up is the head, he's quite a few shades darker now than when he came to me. I struggled with the color match because I started it too orange, so I kept on having to put layers of light blue over it to tone it down. It turned out a little dark, but it's much better than before I blushed him! In the last picture you can see his headcap as a comparison.
Then here we have the body, or rather the torso of an Iplehouse SID male body in special real skin. The mod took quite a while to do too, and I had to use my dremel to get anywhere with it. Once I had it almost small enough I finished it off with sand paper.
I spent roughly 3-4 hours on the body hair alone. This is only the second time I've done body hair so far! Entertainingly enough, both times the clients asked for unnatural colors; blue for the first one, and wine red for this one.
And here we have the comparison of the head before and after color matching and face upping. What a difference! Here you can see that the head ended up being a little too dark, but I feel it's an acceptable difference. I definitely under charged for the color matching as I didn't realize how long and intensive it was going to be...
Anyway, I'm glad he's done! Now onto my next commissions!
That's right. I found time this morning to finish up the body hair blush on the Lumedoll and knock out the raffle winner's face up on top of it.
Look at him be hairy! Now I just need to get him approved, paid, and shipped home! I hope his owner will love his look in person as well. She loved the pictures, but she hasn't seen the arm hair blush yet.
For this boy I was asked to not fully finish the face up (no gloss or eyelashes) because the owner wants to do some more work on him. I can't wait to see how she'll complete him!
Just for you information, I raised my prices and I'm freezing them for a while at this. Those who have already gotten quotes or am waiting on being sent out will still get the old prices. Thank you everyone for commissioning me thus far! You guys are awesome.
And now for the face ups.
First up is the Fairyland RealPuki Tyni with both of his faces.
And here's a better shot of Mr. Blue-Body-Hair. Gonna try to work on his arms soon. It'll be fun.
Yesterday I worked on the Lumedoll Rischa, making him super hairy. I'm nearly done with him, I just need to do the arm hair still, but I ran out of steam after working on him for about 5 hours straight.
I'm quite happy with the result thus far, this is the first time I've done body hair on a doll, and only the third time doing facial hair. I was amazed at how tiny his eyes are.
