Since I didn't have to go to either of my day jobs yesterday, I decided to work on face ups instead from the morning into the afternoon. I worked for about 5 hours non-stop on two heads, a Soom MD Beyla romantic and Soom MD Bygg human head. Due to the freezing temperatures (16ºF and lower), I had to go to my old college campus to work. I sadly didn't take into account that there was an event going on (a pretty big on, the art sale), so I had to hide myself away in a different area to work.
Either way, I'm just about done with the two heads, I just ran out of steam after 5 hours and had to go home. I also got pretty hungry as I couldn't eat in the space I was working in, and didn't want to even try and pack up everything so I could go somewhere where I could eat and come back.
Here are the WIP pictures so far. I need to punch up the pinks along the eyes and lips more, but otherwise they are just about done. I also need to check if the owner would like them to have applied eyelashes, and if so, what color. I'm hopeful I can work on them today to get them done.
Someone asked me on one of the Facebook groups if I had used a stencil for the rose on the Bygg's face because it looks so perfect. That made me super happy because I didn't, it's free-hand.
Also I'm not accepting any new commissions until I get back from Austria in January, 2016. I'd rather not have to rush through them all, or have them sit for several weeks while I'm out of the country.
Anyway, that's all from me for now! If I don't update before Thursday, happy Thanksgiving to all the USA peeps!
