I managed to finish up the two face ups from the last post, and the body/fantasy blush for the Doll Chateau Jakov. The Fairyland PukiFee Halloween event faceplate only needed gloss as he was pretty much done. The Jakov needed his lips tweaked, gloss, and his body and fantasy parts blushed.
Without further ado, onto some pictures!
First up is the Fairyland PukiFee Halloween event faceplate from a year or so ago. He's got a certain charm about him! The client asked for natural blush and freckles.
Then we have the Doll Chateau Jakov in white skin, who is a little imp/demon boy. I've worked on one before, but he had a very different theme from this one! I always love how different owners style the same sculpts. I'm rather proud of the wings and tail as I did that all with pastels. One day I may learn to use an airbrush, but for now, pastels and brush work well for me!
I will end this post with a full body picture of the Jakov all put together. I can't wait to see what the owner will do with him and the Halloween faceplate!
I have some new work to show from the weekend, but it's still very much WIP. I started on a Fairyland PKF Halloween Event face plate from a year or so ago, and on another Doll Chateau Jakov. The PKF is almost done, the Jakov's face I have to tweak a little and start on the body/fantasy blushing.
The PKF just needs gloss now, while the Jakov needs his lips redone, which shouldn't be too big of a task. I love how different both of these look from the previous times I've worked on these sculpts.
My work schedule has been crazy again this week as one of our closing receptionists quit on the spot, so we're trying to figure out the coverage for those two days as there's only two of us who can work then, and we're both openers. We'll figure it out until someone new gets hired and trained in.
Anyway, until next time!
I've been a busy bee this past week with work, but I managed to get some new face ups and the such done! I'm hoping to work on even more today since it's the butt crack of dawn still, the whole day is still ahead of me!
Without further ado, onto some pictures!
First up is a friend's Fairyland MNF Rendia in tan skin. She is a sea witch, and I was given free reign on the lips, so I did a sea green fade. I felt natural lips would be a little bland. I always love working on this color resin, even if blushing sometimes is challenging. It's not often I get to apply piercings to dolls despite having all the resources for it.
I also did a comparison to her default face up. It wasn't a bad face up at all, but I do feel that Fairyland put the eyebrows waaaay too high on it. My friend had added the piercings herself, which I copied over into the custom face up.
Next up is the finally completed Doll Chateau Jakov for another friend.
He was pretty much done, I just had to finish up his wings. He's a David Bowie tribute doll and is finally on his way back home to his owner. Safe travels, friend!
This one is a Luts Senior Delf Isabella in tan skin. It is such a lovely color! I need to work back into her lips a little more and give them more definition. She's also getting a full body blush with freckles plus a french manicure. I'm hoping to work on that today in the afternoon!
That's all for now my friends, until next time!
This weekend was a little less productive than last, but I still got some things done and a WIP to show!
I finished up the third part of a three part commission, the Paper & Sakura Kazarai cat in black resin. She was a bit of a challenge to work on as my pastels were fighting me on showing up on her, so I mostly stuck to paint, but even that was fighting me. In the end I am pleased with the outcome though!
Here are the pictures of the Kazarai. She and the other two heads are on their way home now! I can't wait to see some owner pictures of the lot!
Now I also have a WIP, a long time one. I'm almost done with the Doll Chateau Jakov finally. Just a couple more layers of pastels along the body and he's ready to go home too.
The weather hasn't been favorable these last two days, but I am determined to get things done!
Now for the FYI:
I decided to add an FAQ section to my site. I'll still expand on it as I go along, but I've been debating putting one up for a while. I also put in a little blurb about myself too, just to put a face to the name. If you have any other questions you think I could answer on here, whether basic BJD related or something about me, feel free to comment or send me a note through my contact page!
That's all for now, until next time!
I wasn't quite as productive as I'd hoped, but I did get one face up done today, one I've been sitting on a while. The Doll Chateau Jakov finally got his face up, now I just need to do his body too.
His face up is heavily inspired by David Bowie and is a tribute doll to the late artist. It's an interesting style to work in. Otherwise I have a lot of free reign with the body work, just the face up had a theme.
I'm slowly working on the rest of the commissions as well. I may need to take on less for a while while I get my health sorted out. My chronic migraines have been getting a lot worse.
Either way, hopefully tomorrow I'll have more to show!
