New Work - Jan 16th, 2017
I had a very productive weekend and managed to finish the Doll Chateau Andre and start on another commission almost finishing it! I got to paint an Aileen Doll Cyclops girl, but she isn't done yet. Waiting to hear from the client on her so I know whether I can continue or if I need to make any changes. The weather was great this weekend so I took advantage of that!
Without further ado, onto some pictures!
Here are the detail shots of the DC Andre in white skin. He's the brother to the Jakov I painted last time with the black fantasy parts. Doll Chateau has such cute and unique event dolls, even if a lot of them don't pose too well, haha.
Then here we have the Aileen Doll Cyclops girl WIP pictures. This is the only second time I've ever done a galaxy themed face up, I'd forgotten how much of a challenge they are, but also a lot of fun!
As mentioned before, I'm waiting to hear from the client to see how she likes the work so far. I'm hoping I won't have to try and do painted eyelashes on her, as every time I tried they looked really odd. So I kept wiping them away again. We will just have to wait and see!
WIPs + FYI - Jan 6th, 2017
I've been back a few days now from vacationing with my wife and in-laws in Florida, and I think I've finally settled back into the groove of things. Work is a bit hectic with it being the new year (we need everything new from the patients), and my hours are still a bit crazy for another few weeks I think.
Anyway, I did manage to squeeze out a face up and started work on a massive commission. The face up I did is on a Doll Chateau Andre in white skin, and the other head I started on is a Nobility Doll MNM Bill Kaulitz head.
First up is a picture of the DC Andre. All I really have left on his face is gloss, and then I'll blush his body too. I started on that, but I haven't gotten far yet unfortunately. He's the brother of the DC Jakov I painted recently, the one with the black horns and wings!
Then here's the Nobility Doll MNM Bill Kaulitz head. So far I've modded his eyes more open and gave her ear gages. That's the first time I've done a mod like that! Took a while to figure out. Finally I just carved into his ear and shoved the eyelet in and sculpted around it. The addition will be color matched as he needs to be color matched in general to a LoongSoul NS body. He's going to be Tom, Bill's brohter, hence why the eye opening mod (they are identical twins but have some differences). I'm planning on face upping my brains out this weekend!
Now for the FYI:
I'm going to stay closed until I get through the large part of my commissions. They really piled up and I'm still adjusting to having less time to work on doll stuff. So the commissions have really piled up and I feel awful about that. So I'm going to play catch up. It's also been exceptionally cold here (-2F with a real feel of -19F on average), so getting to working on dolls has been a challenge. Thanks for understanding, you guys are the best!
