First things first, I want to thank all of you for sticking with me these past 2 months of hardly any updating. There's been a bad heatwave followed by a rough cold snap, and now the weather keeps changing from sunny to storming within the same day and it's done a number on my head (I suffer from migraines).
Anyway, I did get a few things done still in July that I wanted to share here. I managed to complete 3 faceups and two little Baby Mossling figures by Goblin Tales BJD. The faceups are on a Soom Heliot from the free choice event in 2011, a Soom Obsidius from this year (2023), and the redo on the MYOU 1/6 scale Gina.
Without further ado, onto some pictures under the cut!
I have good news this rainy last day of September. I have pretty much caught up with all my outstanding commissions, to the point I finally feel ready to take on more work. I haven't been commission-less these past couple of months, taken on some here and there. I admit I was dealing with some creative burnout, but I am finally getting back on track.
So this FYI's TL;DR is that I am reopening commissions this coming week!
I am aiming for opening slots on Wednesday October 5th, 2022.
Important to mention is that I can only take on heads and mani/pedicures this round as I have two full body commissions on me right now that recently arrived, and to prevent a heavy backlog I want to limit how many body blushes I do a round. Thank you for understanding!
Now that that's out of the way, I have a lot of new work to show! I got a Birdcube Lipu head and bunny ears, a Dream Valley Bustet body, a Dream Valley Rita, an Autumn Goblin Tales Mossling (all 5 faceplates and the body), as well as a Smart Doll Chaos V01 to show off. Without further ado, onto some pictures under the break!
As promised, here is the second blog post showcasing the remainder of the work I've gotten done this month. I have everything packed up and ready to go home now, with address labels and custom forms.
Today to show I have a Fantasy Doll Amber which I dyed and painted, a Goblin Tales Baby Mossling, a Flower & Junior Mizi.W, and my Dollzone April.
Without further ado, onto some pictures under the break!
I have a lot, A LOT, of new work to show. I'd been struggling through June with bad weather, home office, then returning to the office, but I have gotten some new work to show!
Things I've worked on are a Volks DDH-10, Dream Valley Ann in tan, Angell Studio Cassie, Impldoll Colin, two Goblin Tales Baby Mosslings, and my Dollzone Mann. I also got the Resinsoul Twilight commission continued, but I will post those in a separate post.
Anyway, without further ado, onto the pictures under the break!
Since the last post, I had a couple more commissions trickle in, and I was able to squeeze one of my own dolls in while working on them! So today I have for showing the redo on a Goblin Tales Mossling in fall colors as his body blush flaked off, and the face up on my Dream Valley Ann.
Without further ado, onto some pictures under the read more break!
Whew, finally got some commissions in and managed to finish a multipart one already! I only got to show the Goblin Tales Mossling spring edition that I painted for a dear friend of mine.
Without further ado, onto some pictures. The FYI will come at the end!
I poured a lot of work into this little critter, in fact I devoted most of yesterday to painting him. My friend asked for a little lady bug on his face, which I loved. So of course I had to make it look like the lady bug would travel along the face haha.
Now for the FYI:
With January over and it officially being February for a few days, I raised my price points by €5 each for basic work. It's been over a year since I increased my prices last and I feel my added experience and skill warrants a higher price.
This is only for new commissions, not ones where I've already given a quote. Those I will honor of course.
That is all for now, until next time!
I was a busy bee these past few days. I managed to paint and finish up a commission that included a body blush and 5 face plates! The doll is a Goblin Tales Mossling in dark tan and orange. I still have more to work on for the client, like a pair of wings I sculpted and cast, but that is my goal for today.
Without further ado, onto some pictures!
Whew! There we go, all 5 faceplates plus the body. The body was all dark tan other than the lower arm pieces, so I had to paint the belly leaf and the inside of the ears lighter so I could match it to the faceplates. He's a little Autumn spirit, and I'm so glad I got to work on one of these cuties.
That is all from me for now, hopefully I'll have more work to show tomorrow!
