It's been quite a while since I've posted a blog update here, so for once I am doing the FYI first and then I will go over the new work I've completed. It's quite a bit, some personal work, and I will put the images under the read more break as usual.
The FYI I will keep above it as I feel it is important to make it properly visible without needing to open the blog post.
I've really dropped the ball for several months now, and I would like to apologize for that. I've been struggling with my mental health more so than usual, and dealing with the post-Covid-19 effects has been draining and tiring. I lost my job right when I got sick with Covid-19 and have been on sick leave since trying to recover both physically and mentally.
I'd also like to thank everyone who has or wants to commission me for your patience. My communication has been spotty at best the last 7 months...
I am almost done with my humongous commission backlog, there's one left where I am waiting on the approval on the mod-plan before I dive into that one as well. The rest just need to be mailed (though every remaining box requires custom forms).
Since July 1st, the EU has implemented a new system for taxing packages and goods from abroad (outside of the EU). There is no more minimum threshold for avoiding VAT charges (which are 20% of the declared value in Austria), which certainly puts a damper on things... I am still willing to accept non-EU commissions, but please be aware that the client/commissioner will be accountable for the custom fees.
Another thing I want to touch on is that I can only accept 1 full body commission per openings. And the more complex it is the longer it's gonna take me. I'm sorry, I just don't want to fall as far behind as this past year. Thank you for understanding!
Now that that is all written down, let me go over what sculpts I worked on the past few months:
For faceups I repainted my Dollzone Daomiao-2 (again) and for body work I finished up the Doll Leaves 43cm V2 Girl body blush, as well as 3 sets of Resinsoul MSD Jointed Hands. Without further ado, onto some pictures under the break!
I've been quite the busy bee since the last time I posted, despite the frequently cruddy weather. I'm slowly getting back on track of things and packed up all my finished commissions to ready them for shipping to their owners.
I would also like to apologize for my lack of communication lately, there's been a lot of stress in my family life along with a worsening of my mental state, but I am slowly pulling myself together again. I am bound and determined to answer the last couple of emails to confirm shipping addresses and quotes, as well as fill out the customs forms for each one.
Anyway, things to show today are a Withdoll Ash elf, a modded Smart Doll Chaos Envisage, the Dollzone Venus Halo body (B45-017) with her fantasy/SciFi parts, and a Volks SD Saki.
Without further ado, onto the pictures under the cut!
I am finally back home and on the mend from pneumonia in both of my lungs due to Covid-19. I'm not fully recovered yet (that'll take time) but I am regaining strength everyday. I will though resume working on commissions this weekend as I am no longer contagious and can handle the commissions again without risking infecting my clients with this nasty virus.
I did receive a few more commissions for faceups, and gotta finish up some other full body ones as well. Once I re-open slots again, I will post here and on the home-page.
Anyway today I have only two faceups to show, a Fairyland Pukifee Cupid in tan skin, and my Dollzone Mann in peach skin.
Without further ado, onto the pictures under the break!
I have several new things to show, but for once I will go into the FYI first before I show the newest work:
I recently lost my job, and due to how they let me go, I cannot get unemployment until April because I am technically still employed until the end of this month (March 2021). I am gonna have to be frugal with my spending, to stretch my savings as much as I can. Don't worry, my wife and I have an emergency fund that covers 3 months of our expenses. Fortunately my wife is still employed, so there's a good chance we can stretch the emergency fund even further.
As to what this means for my commissions, is that I raised my prices. I've been undercharging for ages considering the skill and experience that I have. Thank you for understanding!
All current commissions that I have agreed to take on will remain at the quoted price. So no sudden extra charges for those!
Now, for the work I want to show I have my Dragondoll Cheng, a Gulliver Small Studio Xiaoxi Micro Mermaid, and the Iplehouse J.I.D. Body. Be warned, the last set of pictures has doll nudity.
Without further ado, onto some pictures under the break!
Okay, I am still bad at updating here, and I apologize for that. With the holidays I had little time to devote to the website or faceup work. That'll be my New Year's Resolution, keep up to date better (like I told myself at the beginning of this year, and we all know how that went).
Anyway, today I will show a Fairyland RealFee Pano, a MYOU Grace, and an Iplehouse J.I.D. Benny. I only have 2 faceups and 4 body blushes left to do, and I can finally reopen commissions. The end is nigh!
Without further ado, pictures under the read more break.
I've been really dropping the ball here, and I want to apologize for that. 2020 has been getting to me like everyone else, and the weather as well as my day job have been wearing me down. But, I am still trying to work through my backlog.
This post will show a lot of new work, such as the Resinsoul Twilight centaur body, Resinsoul Dai body, jointed hands in SD and MSD size from Resinsoul, a Fairyland MNF Dark Elf Soo, and my Doll in Mind Bellosse.
Without further ado, onto the pictures under the cut!
