Hello everyone and I hope you all had a great start into the new year. Mine was a bit rocky due to frequent illnesses, but I am finally on the mend so I was able to get some face ups done, but only two sadly. I have a couple other things started, but the weather's been abysmal and wet, and work has started up again too so time has been limited.
Anyway, the two heads I painted were a Doll Family-A Susu (for myself) and a Luts KDF Mill. Both needed color matches to different company resins.
Without further ado, onto some pictures under the break!
Sorry for dropping off of the face off the earth, but I was a busy bee this past weekend to make up for it! I completed 2 face ups and started on another.
The two I finished were a CP Luts Delf modded SS Chiwoo and a Switch Shiho. The third face up I started on is on a Doll Love YouYou. I also never showed the color matched Doll Leaves Dreaming Jax! I'll need to post her too.
Without further ado, onto some pictures!
I've been hard at work on the Nobility Doll MNM Bill Kaulitz head with his Loongsoul 75cm body. I got the head done so far, and the modding of the neck on the body. It's been a very intense commission so far!
Anyway, onto some pictures of the head!
Here's a list of what I all had to do with the head:
Here's the head on the Loongsoul body post modding. I don't have pictures of the before mod fit, but it was pretty bad. The neck has a 13cm circumference, and the head is meant for 10.5cm. So I took quite a bit off. At least he's got great mobility!
Now I just need to blush his torso, peens (there's 5 of them), and give him a mani and pedicure. I'm quite pleased with how good the color match turned out to the body! Loongsoul NP is very very pink and light!
Anyway, that's all from me for now, until next time!
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!
I finally got around to color matching and face upping a head from a friend. I can't remember what body she's on, but it definitely did not match the paper white head on it. The only guidelines I was given were color matching to the body and a fantasy face up.
The head is an artist cast Sweet Dolls Alice, so she's not a perfect cast. You can see at the head cap how white this head really is.
Here's a cruddy cell phone picture of her on her body. The color match is pretty spot on. I don't know how to use an airbrush, so I did it all with pastels.
