Once again, I've been a busy busy bee with face up work. I've just about finished everything I have on me, other than the DF-A BoBo and the Little Rebel Andre as the owner is waiting on his body to see if he needs a color match in the face!
Things I painted the past few days are: Notdoll Ligaya, Mystic Kids Evelyn, Fairyland PukiPuki Mary, and again my Dollzone Daomiao-2 because she chipped her face up due to my rough handling of her.
Without further ado, onto some pictures!
First up is the Notdoll Ligaya in crystal rose skin rocking a goth look with dark blue lips. This gal's head is massive, and requires at least 18-20mm eyes. I didn't have anything in those sizes (other than some demon eyes in 18mm), so she got some grey 16mm eyes put in.
It's rare that I get to do gothic face ups, I mostly get to do natural or fantasy. Despite that, I still enjoy doing darker face ups too!
Then next up is another goth beauty, this time a Mystic Kids Evelyn in normal pink skin. She was tough to get clean because I swear her old eyelashes had been superglued in place. I could not get them off, not even with isopropyl alcohol! I finally had to scrape them off with a pin and rip them out with tweezers. Good thing they were already heavily damaged so I didn't feel bad ripping them further apart.
This little thing is a Fairyland PukiPuki Mary in natural skin. I was given free reign with her, so she got a fantasy face up! Glittery blue make up, but otherwise naturally blushed. I need to secure her wig better too. She belongs to the same client as the Mystic Kids Evelyn.
Last, but not least, is the redo face up on my Dollzone Daomiao-2 in normal pink skin. I'm actually much more satisfied with this face up than the last one. Just kind of annoying that I had to repaint her so quickly... Either way, she's a cute little thing, being the tallest of my YoSDs.
I'm still open for commissions as most that I've done these last two weeks are already back with their owners! I still need to restring the Mystic Kids Evelyn, but then she and the PukiPuki are ready to return home to their owner. I am expecting one more commission from the USA, which'll be a fun one to work on!
Now that it's March I'm open for commissions again! I've already knocked out two heads for commission. I also redid my Mystic Kids Miri (again), but she looks better than ever! But first I'll show my commissions.
First up is a Sweet Dolls Aiden in normal pink skin. The head is technically a boy one, but the owner has it on a girl body, so girly face up it is! She also is a redhead and I was asked to put freckles on her, so I did. She turned out pretty cute.
Next up is a Fairyland MNF Ante in tan skin. Fairyland tan is to die for, it's such a pretty color! The eyebrows are a dark grey because her wig is silver. She keeps going wonky eyed on me, so I'll need to fix that, again.
And then last, but certainly not least, is my own Mystic Kids Miri in normal pink skin. I've been wanting to do a galaxy themed face up for ages. I'm really happy with how she turned out. Her last face up was just too plain and disgruntled looking.
I'm not sure whether I'll keep her name (Jolene) or change it. So far I still call her Jolene, but I'm not sure if it's "fancy" enough for a fallen star. Either way I'm super pleased with her face up now.
Now to de-yellow the Dollshe Saint I got hanging out so I can paint him too. And of course the PukiFee faceplate needs to be painted as well.
I was a busy bee today and did two full face ups and finished another one that was already started.
My partner pointed out that they all seem to have the same color scheme, just with different eyebrow colors. I think it's because each one is natural with similar skin tones.
I feel very accomplished. What's funny is, I've worked on all of these dolls before.
Since I have no commissions to work on right now, I decided to wipe my new girl's default face up and give her one of my own. I originally intended her to face freckles, but after three attempts I gave up. She's still cute without freckles though!
Here she is before and after. Her first face up was pretty, but it wasn't her. And it sparkled way too much and was rather bland. I like to have some life to my dolls hence why I love blushing. Her name is Jolene and my cat Jhana snuck her way into the background of the after picture.
