I got a good start on the 3 part commission I took on (Fairyland MNF Mirwen, Souldoll Tiffee, and Souldoll Johnny), I did do all 3 face ups, but I have to redo one. The Souldoll Tiffee and Fairyland MNF Mirwen are done and approved, just the Souldoll Johnny needs a redo now.
Unfortunately I caught my wife's plague (cold) so I'm a bit out of commission at the moment. I'm still going to work (probably a dumb idea, but I need the paycheck), so by the time the afternoon rolls around I just want to rest.
Anyway, onto some pictures!
First up is the Souldoll Tiffee in normal skin. She's an old gal who needed a cleaning before I could work on her. I couldn't get all of her old face up out of her lip crevice so I covered it with the new face up best I could.
Then here we have the Fairyland MNF Mirwen in natural skin. He's the twin brother of the Souldoll Tiffee, hence why they have such similar face ups.
I'm not going to post the Souldoll Johnny pictures because I'm going to completely redo him anyway.
That's all from me for now. Hopefully I'll have something new to post soon!
After not being able to face up for about 2 weeks due to working extra hours and the weather being abysmal, I was finally about to produce two face ups for a friend of mine and her sister. Both required a cleaning before I could work on them, but that's not a big deal to me usually
Anyway, onto some pictures!
First up is my friends Fairyland MNF Juri 2011, who is very rare, and even rarer to find unmodded! Getting her old face up off was a nightmare, even with the Winsow & Newton brush cleaner it took me forever to get her clean. Either way, she is clean, washed, sealed, and repainted.
My friend loves the way she turned out! My directions were to make her look happy, pink lips, brown eyebrows, freckles on the nose and cheeks, and black eyelashes. I'm super happy too with the result!
I'm also including a quick before and after picture of her, just to show how different she looks after my handiwork. The old face up definitely wasn't bad or mediocre, it just wasn't what the new owner (my friend) wanted.
Then here we have my friend's sister's doll, a Fairyland MNF Mirwen in natural skin. I was asked for dark eyes, dark lips, and loooong eye lashes along with a beauty mark under her eye, didn't matter which side.
She was fun to work on since she didn't want her looking angry or sad, which is often hard to do with how the Mirwen brow bone is sculpted. I didn't have her eyes on me (she has green eyes and I didn't have any in her size in my jar), so I put some amber ones in her.
I also did a before and after shot of her too. I also love seeing how different dolls look painted by different artists. It's always so amazing to me!
That's all for now for face ups. Soon I will make a blog post about 2015 in review. I have the image ready and my thoughts gathered, I just haven't had the time yet to write it all up and post it! Stay tuned!
