So far this week I've only done redos rather than brand new face ups. I do still have two commissions on me, which I will tackle today.
Since I've had this boy for sale since January about with no reasonable offers on him, I decided to redo his face up since the old one was way too brown. I'm hoping this will increase his chances of being sold...
The other face up I did yesterday was on my partner's Soom SO Adamelli Centaur girl. I just did a face up on her a week ago, but it reminded her too much of her Soom MD Shale, so I redid it.
The first face up on her looked plain, but those were the directions I was given. The second time I was told to give her freckles and given some reference photos for what she wanted after realizing she looked too much like her other doll.
Now to get back to the Impldoll Aldrich again.
I was still using my old method with him where I would draw on the eyelashes and eyebrow hairs with the pencil rather than paint them. I need to invest in more watercolors so that I can expand my palette. Either way, he looks a lot better this way. I almost want to keep him, but I don't know who he is or who he could be since the character he shelled has been taken by my Soom FC Chrom.
Oh well, hopefully he'll sell at some point. I've already listed him way below retail price for new and blank. And now for some detail shots.
My new boy (Impldoll Aldrich) arrived two days ago and he is so perfect it's not even funny! I had gotten some secondhand Soom Chrom legs to hybrid onto him and I was worried I'd have to mod him to fit them. As luck would have it, they are a perfect fit. He stands with little fidgeting and looks great for my character. Yesterday I gave him a face up while waiting for some glue to dry on a commission head.
Here he is! His tan was an interesting challenge to blush. Who knew dark peach would work great for subtle blushing? I certainly didn't! I was going for reddish browns originally, but then I tried the peach tone and it worked great. I still used the browns too though for the eyes and such. He's my only boy with eyelashes.
