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!
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!
I've been really dropping the ball here, and I want to apologize for that. 2020 has been getting to me like everyone else, and the weather as well as my day job have been wearing me down. But, I am still trying to work through my backlog.
This post will show a lot of new work, such as the Resinsoul Twilight centaur body, Resinsoul Dai body, jointed hands in SD and MSD size from Resinsoul, a Fairyland MNF Dark Elf Soo, and my Doll in Mind Bellosse.
Without further ado, onto the pictures under the cut!
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!
I had a very productive Saturday yesterday, I did 3 face ups from start to finish! I painted a HZ Wang-Ye in tan skin, a Fairyland MNF RFA event head in natural skin, and a Resinsoul Rong head in white skin. The two MSD sized heads were from one client, and the Wang-Ye was from another. I have one more doll to do for that client and everyone can go home!
Anyway, without further ado, onto some pictures!
First up is the HZ Wang-Ye, or as the client calls him "Mr. Angry-Face". He came with a face up already which the client wanted me to redo with more anger in the brows. Before he kinda just looked like "Meh", now he's full on rage! Figuring out the blushing palette was interesting as his resin is kind of translucent.
Here's his before and after image. The client asked me to keep the designs as close as possible like on the first face up, but with some small modifications. He's definitely an angry doll!
Next up are the two MSD sized heads for a different client! I always love working on their dolls.
First up is the Fairyland MNF RFA event head in natural skin. With this face up I was asked for freckles along the cheeks and nose, natural blushing and make up. I always love doing freckles, pity hardly any of my dolls have them!
Then last, but certainly not least, is the Resinsoul Rong in white skin. She's a woodland sprite/nymph and I was asked to keep her color scheme in tune with that, but otherwise I had a lot of freedom. She was oddly yellowed in the face, which is really strange as she's been in a bag since the client dropped her off with me. I managed to cover it with the face up at least!
That's all for now, until next time!
I've been a busy bee this past week with work, but I managed to get some new face ups and the such done! I'm hoping to work on even more today since it's the butt crack of dawn still, the whole day is still ahead of me!
Without further ado, onto some pictures!
First up is a friend's Fairyland MNF Rendia in tan skin. She is a sea witch, and I was given free reign on the lips, so I did a sea green fade. I felt natural lips would be a little bland. I always love working on this color resin, even if blushing sometimes is challenging. It's not often I get to apply piercings to dolls despite having all the resources for it.
I also did a comparison to her default face up. It wasn't a bad face up at all, but I do feel that Fairyland put the eyebrows waaaay too high on it. My friend had added the piercings herself, which I copied over into the custom face up.
Next up is the finally completed Doll Chateau Jakov for another friend.
He was pretty much done, I just had to finish up his wings. He's a David Bowie tribute doll and is finally on his way back home to his owner. Safe travels, friend!
This one is a Luts Senior Delf Isabella in tan skin. It is such a lovely color! I need to work back into her lips a little more and give them more definition. She's also getting a full body blush with freckles plus a french manicure. I'm hoping to work on that today in the afternoon!
That's all for now my friends, until next time!
