Hello all! It's been a hot minute since I last posted, not for lack of having you content to post, but rather I had a lot of errangs and appointments these past couple of weeks. I am so grateful for everyone that commissioned me through my birthday sale last month, it's been a tremendous boost of confidence and joy!
I am still expecting a few commissions to come in, therefore I am still keeping my slots closed for now.
But in better news, I have a lot of new things to share! I have an Asleep Eidolon Agnes in SD scale, a Doll Family-A Auriel, a Dollzone Ivana set of wings, a Luts KDF Summer Event 2013 head, and a set of Smart Doll hands.
Without further ado, onto some pictures under the read more break!
I finally finished up the Resinsoul Sui, now all that's left from that client is a Resinsoul Nian. The Sui left my whole desk purple, and so many cotton balls gave their life for his blushing! He was truly a labor of love. I could have saved myself a lot of trouble by just learning to use my airbrush, but I'd rather not experiment on client dolls...
But anyway, onto some pictures!
First up, his head. He's in white skin and his color scheme is purple and black. He actually currently has a silver wig, but I think a deep violet or black would be amazing on him too! I fought with the eyes because they are too big (Resinsoul included them). I haven't done scales like this in a while, but they look good on him!
Next up is his body blush. He has muscles on his muscles. This boy is ripped. I extended the scales from the tail onto his back and blushed his body with purples again to match his overall theme. He also got restrung and sueded too!
And to finish up showing his pictures, here's the rest of his fantasy parts in detail. Clawed hands, lizard feet, wings, and his tail. I didn't take a picture of the other side of his tail, but it's just a light violet, nothing too special. You can see it in one of the body blush pictures though!
I'm still very much closed for new commissions. I don't see myself re-opening until late September at the earliest... And I'll have to cut down on how many parts I accept per slot. With working 10 hour days my free time is very small and restricted to weekends only. I feel bad making my clients wait so long on face ups and such.
For this client I have 1 more doll to work on, who needs a face up, body blush, restringing and sueding, fantasy parts blush, basically an all over job. Then for another client I have another 3 dolls to work on, and from a friend I have a smol Doll Family-A Luca dear to paint. Thank you guys for being so patient with me!!
That's all from me for now, until next time!
Despite having caught some sort of crud, I managed to be somewhat productive. I've been sick a week now, but I think I'm on the mend! Either way, I finally was able to document the Fairyland LTF Wings this past week, and I painted my wife's Flower & Junior Mizi.W head!
I also got a large order of eyelashes in from Taobao so that's great too. I can't wait to use some of them! I got 10 pairs of black, 10 pairs of brown, 8 pairs of white, 6 pairs of blue, yellow, and purple, and 4 pairs of bright red. These should last me a while!
Without further ado, onto some pictures under the read more break.
I finally finished working on the Sweet Dolls Fairy Alexa the other day and finally documented the work. I'm just worried about getting it back to the owner because I have no contact info for her. She handed her to me at the last doll meet, and I tried to get the day off from work for the next one, but I was denied. So now I need to try and get one of my local friends who can go to take her with and return her to the owner (she already paid me).
Now for some pictures!
In other news, a pipe burst in two places in my apartment the other day, so a lot of my stuff is MIA in the mess from shoving everything into one corner. The radiator spewed hot water all over the carpet, so currently we have a giant hold in our wall, and a flying carpet due to it being dried now. So art is on hold for now, but I do have all my face up stuff accounted for so that shouldn't be a problem.
It's also bitter cold again, so I'm going to have a hard time getting the DC Dolores done with the college being closed today to non-students. I kinda need that so I can spray MSC safely. I might try the airbrush method since I have one, just no clue how to use it!
Tuesday was super busy for me on the doll front, I finished the two face ups and wings from the previous week, did two more face ups, and 3 hands. I still need to document all of them properly but I wanted to share what I all did.
As you can see, I had a very full plate to work on. I'm going to hopefully document everything today before work and get all of them listed on the site.
The heads from left to right are an Unoa L-Bi, Impldoll Greta, Doll Love M K, Doll Love YouYou. The hands belong to the Impldoll Greta, and the wings are hand cast and painted by me.
I'm currently working on two heads and a pair of my wings that I recently sold. The heads are both YoSD heads from Doll Love, one is an M K and the other is a YouYou. Let's see the WIP shot of them!
The YouYou will still be getting freckles all over the face, the M K head is almost done at this point, just need to add more details to her. And the wings sill need to be darkened up with a few more layers of purple.
I blushed my reject pair today. I'm quite happy with the outcome! I wanted them to match my LTF elf chiwoo named Diuris for the orchid on her face. I pretty much used the same colors as for her flower for her wings.
Here you can see a side view to show Diruis's face. She's a little demon flower fairy, or something. Mainly she likes being pretty.
There we go! I cleaned up all three pairs now that I've cast. One I'm never selling/giving away because it was the first one and has stunted talons. The other two I might be willing to part with, but not yet. I first want to paint them all pretty!
Here you can see that I stuck them on three different sized dolls for size comparisons. I originally intended them for YoSDs, but they work great on MSD too. A little small on the SD though. I should be able to paint them on Thursday if the weather permits. I know it won't tomorrow, too humid and gross, unless I go to college and do it there. Hmm...
Today was very successful! The molds worked great and I now have three pairs of RESIN wings! Now I just need to sand them and clean them up, and they're good to go!
They are also really light weight. I can't wait to try them out on my LTF to see how they fit!
I'm so happy with them! Thank you so much Zirconmermaid and Gerald! You two are the best!
Today the weather finally allowed me to work at home, so what did I do? I blushed some LTF wings! I think they turned out quite nice with the over all color scheme of the doll. I was asked by the owner to make the long feathers sparkly and glossy like the horns.
And here we have the "owner" of the wings. She got her face up redone as well since it got damaged in the move and I couldn't fix it...
Slowly but surely I've been working on some wings to market and sell for BJDs. I'm currently still at the prototype stage, but I'm slowly getting there. I've made the magnets fit at this point and the wings no longer droop when put on the doll through clothing. Now I just need 8mm x1mm N50 magnets to stick under clothing so that the wings will stay in place!
I can hardly wait to make molds and cast them! I'm so excited at this point!!
