FYI & New Work - Dec. 1st, 2022
This past month I have been a super busy bee with getting through many commissions, and I ended the month with a solid 11 faceups. I do have another I had started along with a body blush, but I ran out of time to complete them.
I won't be sharing all of them today, because that would make this the blog post that never ends...
First up though, the FYI:
As I already wrote on my homepage, I am closing commissions Friday, in other words tomorrow, because I want time to finish all the commissions this month, so that I can be away from home guilt free starting January 11th, 2023. I will be gone for 6 weeks, I will be home in the week of February 22nd, 2023. Weird to think that 2022 is almost done with. Thanks for understanding!
Today I will share my Faewoods Dolls Orchidaceae, a Charm Doll Eric, a Soom TG Keny, and the Fairyland MNF Ingrid open eyed and sleeping heads. The rest will be shared next week in another blog post.
Without further ado, onto some pictures!
New Work - Sept. 17th, 2022
It's been a hot minute since I've posted on here. I have quite a bit of work to share since I had Covid-19 again the first two weeks of August. I have been posting the collages to the Examples section here, along with some new owner pics as well.
Despite this run of Covid being mild, it still fatigued me horribly and it's taken me quite a while to get back into the swing of working on commissions. I have finished 5 faceups, 2 body blushes, and some fantasy parts since then.
Today I will only share the work I still completed in August, otherwise it's just too long of a blog post. Things to share are a Fairyland MNF Alicia, a Popovy Sisters Blue Jay and her body, and a Soom Heliot Fantasy head from the Cosmos release.
Without further ado, onto the pictures and ramblings under the break!
New Work + FYI - Mar 28th, 2020
I have a bit of work to show again from the last weekend (not this one yet)! I'm hoping to get through the neck mod and the eyebrow repaint for a very patient commissioner. The neck just needs to be smoothed out now, and the eyebrows will get repainted today.
But anyway, work I can show today is as follows: face ups on an Angel Philia K and M, and on a modded Fairyland MNF Chloe (a previous owner added elf ears). The two AP girls have natural face ups, and the MNF has a glam/fantasy face up.
The FYI relates to my prices, the COVID-19 virus, my birthday, and what this means for the near future.
Without further ado, onto some pictures under the break!
New Face Up April 14th, 2016!
Technically I finished the face up yesterday, but didn't get around to posting it. I started it on Tuesday evening, and finished it up Wednesday morning. I was given artist's choice with this one. She's a Fairyland MNF R.A. event head from the Fairy Line release. The weather's been gorgeous here so I can work anytime on face ups!
Without further ado, let's get to the pictures!
The head belongs to a good friend of mine, and she wanted me to do whatever I felt like doing with the face up. The first thing I did was do freckles as I know she loves them on dolls. I sent her progress photos, but she hasn't responded yet to the final pictures yet. Soon I hope!
I knew I wanted to do a fantasy face up again since I've mostly been doing natural or basic face ups lately. Nothing wrong with those of course, but sometimes I just get the itchy for fantasy swirls!
This week has been busy at work. Normally I just work part time, but this week my schedule's been shifted a little. On Monday instead of opening I closed, and Wednesday I worked an extra two hours, and today I do a full 8 hour shift as one of my fellow receptionists is ill and I don't mind covering for her. I also got the new website for work up and running, and am helping to maintain it along with the FB page. It's a lot of work, but also a lot of fun!
Anyway, I should stop blathering now. Have a great day everyone!
Last Work of January 2016!
It was a busy weekend for me! I did 2 face ups, not quite as many as I hoped to do, but I had friends come over so my time was a little limited, but I still dented my commission list and even did one for myself!
First up we have a Fairyland MNF Luka in natural skin with light freckles, light cat's eyeliner, but otherwise natural. I'm really proud of her eyelashes. She's also my 220th face up to date!
Then here we have one I did for myself on my new girl, a Dollzone Moon in normal yellow skin. I wanted her to be mostly natural looking with some light fantasy aspects, such as the scales along her eyes. She is a dragon after all. I made the eyes myself, along with her wig.
Here she is all put together! I still need to take some pictures of her in actual daylight. Soon!
January 2016 was a good month for doing face ups, I did a 6 face ups! That is quite a bit considering I couldn't do any for about 1-2 weeks at one point because of scheduling conflicts with my jobs.
This week I'm hoping to tackle the 3 part commission I got and get that one done too. If I can't do it before the weekend not the end of the world, but I'll try regardless! I feel like I'm on a roll!
All the detail shots!
I finally got around to documenting the face ups I completed the other day. It took a while but it is done!
First up is the Doll Love WenWen. She's really a cutie! She's going to have pink hair, hence the pink eyebrows.
Next up is a Fairyland MNF Mirwen. I've always wanted to see one in person and she really is a pretty sculpt. Usually face up artists either make her angry or sad looking, but my customer didn't want either. I feel she actually looks like she's smiling, so that's good.
And last but certainly not least are the two Fairyland PukiFee faceplates. The first is a Mio and the second is a New Family event faceplate.
All the Fairyland face ups were for one person. Now I just need to get all the heads back to their proper owners.
Next up is the Magical Angel Kelly (girl). I'm going to have a lot of fun with her. She'll have a face up, body blush, and a mani and pedi.
Two Similar Face Ups
I finally got around to repainting my new girl (Angell Studio Dina) and my partner's new girl (Fairyland MNF WooSoo Vampire). Entertainingly enough they both have a similar color scheme. Both are pale with white hair, though my girl has heavy scarring and hers has scales in the face.
First up is my new girl in all her scarred glory.
I love how subtle she turned out. I wanted to make the scars look old rather than freshly healed. It's been a long time since she earned those scars.
Her previous face up was the company default and very sweet, but definitely not my character Elandril.
Someone actually asked me to put together a tutorial for doing scars on a BJD. Luckily Elandril does have an important scar on her arm, so I can do it with that. It's so easy to do scars like that too.
Next up are the detail shots of the Fairyland MNF WooSoo Vampire girl.
This girl is spunky, because she's a rebellious teenager. The white dots on her are scales and perfectly reversible as well because they are just white glue.
More Commissions Done!
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.
