I've been quite the busy bee since the last time I posted, despite the frequently cruddy weather. I'm slowly getting back on track of things and packed up all my finished commissions to ready them for shipping to their owners.
I would also like to apologize for my lack of communication lately, there's been a lot of stress in my family life along with a worsening of my mental state, but I am slowly pulling myself together again. I am bound and determined to answer the last couple of emails to confirm shipping addresses and quotes, as well as fill out the customs forms for each one.
Anyway, things to show today are a Withdoll Ash elf, a modded Smart Doll Chaos Envisage, the Dollzone Venus Halo body (B45-017) with her fantasy/SciFi parts, and a Volks SD Saki.
Without further ado, onto the pictures under the cut!
I actually finished this face up on Sunday, but I'm only getting now to posting it. This time I got to work on a Withdoll Elf Hunter Emma in grey-UV skin. That resin has a slight translucency about it, it's very pretty!
Without further ado, onto some pictures!
I was asked to do purple smoky eyes, black lips with gold flecks, and white eyebrows and lashes. White eyebrows are always such a challenge for me, even though I like the end result! Fantasy colored resin always provides me with a learning experience since I have to use different color palettes to make them look natural. Always a fun thing for me though!
Now for the FYI.
I intend to reopen commissions at the end of this week. I'm almost done with all that I have to do currently (just got the Ringdoll Fat Happiness left, who needs a dye job and a face up), so I'm just about ready to take on more! Keep your eyes peeled for the announcement!
Until next time!
I finally got to 230 completed face ups! This is also my 4th face up on a Resinsoul Mei. It's such a pretty and versatile sculpt. I also blushed some Withdoll MSD Boy Hands with the face up. The RS Mei is in fleshtone (which is a normal pink color), and the hands are in white skin. I was asked to blush a happy medium tone between the two.
First up, the face up on the Resinsoul Mei. He's an elf boy, and for inspiration I was given pictures of Legolas and Thranduil from Lord of the Rings/The Hobbit. I wasn't sent eyes with so I just used some spare ones I had laying around.
Then here we have the Withdoll MSD boy hands in white skin. They were a lot of fun to blush, I used the same colors as I did on the face up to pull it all together.
And just a picture of the hands with the head. It obviously isn't a perfect match, but I didn't want to go too pink as then the hands would look weird on the body.
Now that the work's been shown, it's time to post an updated face up portfolio collage! It just keeps getting bigger and bigger!
What a lovely sight! It's always so much fun for me to look over this collage and see how much I've improved since starting to do face ups in late 2011. I've been at it about 4.5 years now. What a ride it's been!
I know, I know, I should have gotten some of these done a while ago, but things have been rather crazy here. I finally had some downtime today and managed to do a face up. Now I only have 2 commissions left.
First up the finished pictures of the Withdoll Angela in rosy brown. She's meant to look like a mix between a night elf and a drow. It was quite the challenge to work on that resin color, but I'm overall happy with the end result.
And then here we have a Dollzone Moon, who is a really cool little hybrid. Her owner has her on a Doll Chateau Alberta body, and with the head being so big (it's meant to be YoSD) it works great on it. I can't wait to see her put back together again.
Also some FYI. My schedule at work is changing to earlier. I'll be working from 6:00am to 2:30pm Wednesday through Sunday. That is really nice for me because then I get to work on other things in the afternoon, like face ups!
I tried out my spray booth this morning when I couldn't sleep, and I must say it does make the MSC much more tolerable. It doesn't completely eliminate it, but it does a good enough job of it.
Anyway, I wanted to show a picture of what I'm working on right now.
She is about half way done at this point. She is in the rosy brown color that Withdoll offers. Very lovely for a drow/dark elf. I'm hoping to finish her soon.
