I'm still being a busy bee with getting through my commissions. I only have 2 left as I'm still waiting on them to arrive! This past week I managed to complete two more commissions, one is a modded Volks DDH-04 and the other is a Doll in Mind Chloe.
Without further ado, onto some pictures!
First up is the modded Volks DDH-04 in semi-white skin. She came with a previous artist's face up, which I wiped and then I modded some elf ears onto her. Next I did her face up as well as her facial tattoo based off of a character in Dragon Age if I'm not mistaken.
I'm the first to admit that anime-styled face ups are hard for me to pull off, but I'm dang proud of this one!
Then here we have the Doll in Mind Chloe in normal skin. She also came with a previous face up, which took a lot more effort to come off, but in the end she was ready to be painted too. She went from a sweet to a gothic little girl. I need to make her some new eyes, red ones! That'll be fun too.
Now that we got these two face ups out of the way, I need to pay the ransom fee for another commission box to be picked up on Monday. Sadly my post office is closed today, but I was able to ship some out at a different post office.
That is all for now, until next time!
This month has been exceptionally slow for commissions, but that's okay! There's always next month too, where I have some commissions lined up already.
Anyway, the new work I got to show is one for myself, and one was a commission from a dear friend! My own is a Doll in Mind Gayane in normal skin, who'd been a gift from a friend before I left the USA. The commission is a Youlpa Dolls Zenji in normal skin.
Without further ado, onto some pictures!
First up the commission, the Youlpa Dolls Zenji in normal skin, I think at least. He's meant to look like he hasn't slept in ages, and lives off of coffee and caffeine in general. It was a lot of fun to give him mighty eyebrows and eye circles. That's why I love commissions, I get to paint things on dolls I'd never think of doing with my own even! He's a floating head currently, but my friend is saving up for a body for him.
Then here's Autumn, my Doll in Mind Gayane. She's got quite the history being a gift from a friend! She'd been her first doll, after I snared her into the hobby. She fell out of love with her and decided to gift her to me shortly before my move. My wife and I were going to take her with us on the plane as all our stuff had already been mailed by that point, including all but one of our other dolls.
We hit some big snafu's on the flight, like our carry-ons being too heavy, so we had to check one of them. One of our suitcases was too heavy as well so we had to leave a bunch of stuff behind with a friend, one of them being Autumn. My friend finally was able to mail her back to me this past month, but her head-cap wasn't included. She hasn't found it yet, so while she searches, I made her one out of Fimo and magnets to tide her over.
Here's her before and after I repainted her. She had had a default face up, which was pretty, but it's no secret I have to paint all my own dolls or I can't bond with them. I'm slowly working on modding her body to be better functioning.
The DiM Happy Glamour Body is... janky at best. I restrung her with fresh elastic, and elongated the elastic slots on her thighs. Next up is hollowing out her hip sockets so she stops rocking back on her butt and finally sits up straight. I've never done mobility mods like this before, so it's kind of exciting!
Anyway, this is all for now! I'm still open for commission as my slots aren't filled. I'm itching to paint more dolls! Maybe I'll repaint my Fairyland LTF DES next...
Until next time!
This weekend was a busy one for me! I completed the face up I showed last time, and did a full one as well on top of it.
The Doll in Mind Rain just got his last touches this morning (gloss) and he was approved fully as well so he's ready to go home. Then the other face up I did was on my wife's Luts HDF Centaur Madeleine in real skin brown.
Anyway, onto some pictures!
First up is the Doll in Mind Rain in normal skin. He was a very interesting face up for me to work on.
Then here we have the Luts HDF Madeleine in real skin brown. We're still waiting on her proper wig to arrive, but it's in customs right now so it should be here by the end of the week! Entertainingly enough it'll get here right while my wife is out of state. Whoops!
