It's that time of year where I'm left wishing I had better tires on my car. I tried to get to my day job today, but my car wouldn't even get out of the parking spot because the mini plow at my apartment complex plowed me in. I also have no shovel to get myself out with. In other words, involuntary snow day for me up in Minnesota.
Also I have to go in and help my mother with data entry at work either on Monday or Tuesday, so I won't be able to work on commissions again until Wednesday, maybe Tuesday morning if I'm lucky. Sorry about the delay you guys, but face up-ing doesn't bring me in enough money to live on, hence why I'm a part-time janitor while being a student as well.
I'm also thinking of raising my prices every 4-6 months by $5 at a time. The first price raise will be in January.
In other news, I did manage to finish up a three part commission yesterday.
Here is the DZ Yuu with his growing in facial hair. I'm rather happy with how he turned out, he didn't even fight me on the eyelash application. He put them right in for me.
And here we have the ZM Large Fox ears I painted. I will be sending the DZ Yuu and the ZM Small Kitty and Large Fox Ears back tomorrow. Hopefully I can get to the post office.
I have quite a few things on my plate right now, but I'm about 50% done with what I have to do. So far I've gotten one face up 95% done and a pair of ears 100% done.
I was originally done with the face up, but when I sent pictures for approval I was asked to add a small growing in mustache to the upper lip. So I'll take his eyelashes off again and add the mustache to finish him up. That should be easy.
Here is a before and after picture. He had the fullset DZ Yuu scar face up. It took forever to get the paint out of the eyelid creases, but after 30 minutes or so of scrubbing he was clean and ready for a new face up. It's amazing how different a face up can make the same doll look.
This is the pair of ears I finished. That's all done with pastels, no acrylics or airbrush used. The ears were originally a creamy white. I still have another pair of larger fox ears to blush for this commissioner and then I'm done.
I also have another head to face up and a pair of ears to blush. It's a 5star Doll Emma with ZM Small Kitty Ears.
Then I have another commission arriving, an Illusion Spirit Annabelle. She's going to be a snow princess so she'll be fun to work on.
