I managed to finish up the Tumblr free face up raffle winner's head yesterday already, but my camera was all out of power and I couldn't find the charger until today (it was so obvious that I felt stupid when I found it). He turned out rather lovely if you ask me!
He's a dragon, so I was asked to paint gold and silver scales on him, along with a goatee. I had a lot of fun even if it took forever to build up the colors on the grey/silver scales.
I also have 4 more heads to work on that I am starting today. They've been cleaned and sealed so all that's left now is the painting.
They are in order a Doll Love WenWen, Fairyland MNF Mirwen, Pukifee Mio, and Pukifee NF. The WenWen and Mirwen will be natural while the two Pukifees will be ore fantasy. The tan one is an Impldoll Aldrich.
That's right! I got a lot more done this weekend and a little bit the last one too. I have lots of new face ups to show, including one for myself because 2 more commissions I have on me are more leisurely.
I sent out messages to all the commissioners asking for approval or to give my instructions. I'm hoping for approval so I can pack them all up, invoice them, and ship them back out. I feel guilty that it took me so long to work on these, but life exploded and I was sick for a week as well... Either way, they are done now.
I actually did this one a few days ago, but better late than never!
I did a free face up on a prize head for Allkon, a convention in Texas. I worked on MiroDoll New 1/4 Girl head (such a specific name!). I was allowed to do just about anything I wanted to, though I decided to keep it natural. I gave her freckles, and it took me literally 4 tries to get them decent. I'm starting to get better with my new technique, so I'm pleased about that. The only thing I need is more watercolor pencils in different colors. I need more medium pale browns, most of mine are either really dark, or blonde!
Anyway, onto the pictures!
The lighting is a bit crappy in them because my apartment isn't fully set up yet again. A pipe burst in two places in one of our radiators and we currently still have a giant hole in our wall until Tuesday. Now that the carpet is dry we've started putting things together again, but my picture station isn't quite there yet because that's where the hole is.
Here we are on the first day of a lovely October, and I have raised my prices by $5 each. There is good news though, I'm no longer charging extra for fantasy work on face ups. So if your character has tattoos or scars on the face, you won't have to pay any more than for a basic face up.
Also I am hosting a free giveaway on my Tumblr. I'm not kidding. I've had this head in my collection for about a year, and I did get her a body, but she just doesn't fit in. So since I got her for free, I'm giving her away for free.

I'm also going to raise my prices in April, but I think I'll freeze the prices then for a while.
