Technically I finished this face up yesterday, but I didn't get around to posting it here until now! This time I got to work on a Luts Senior Delf Juniper in normal skin. The owner had her sent (along with a friend's doll, they ordered together) directly to me from Luts to save on shipping. I'm really looking forward to working on the second doll too as she's a Japanese ghost.
Anyway, onto some pictures!
She was a fun gal to work on, and the clients were nice enough to provide me with eyelashes and face masks. Not that I mind grabbing into my own stock as I provide all sorts of eyelashes for free, but it was still really nice! This head also bitterly fought me on painting her lower eyelashes, but I prevailed!
And just for something fun, a friend of mine on Facebook asked to see face up improvement collages, so I redid mine that showed my first three compared to my last three. It's always fun to see how one improves!
I've definitely stepped up my eyebrow and eyelash game! I was pretty terrified of eyelashes when I started, and usually avoided doing them if I could. Now they are some of my favorite things to do along with eyebrow detailing.
I switched from watercolor pencils to paint in that time. That alone bared some challenges to learn a new skill set. I'll openly admit that my first face ups after switching from pencil to brush were awful. Getting good liner brushes definitely helped as I only had a short tiny detail brush at the time.
In other news, I'll be experimenting with some different sealants, such as Citadel Purity Seal and Army Painter Anti-Shine Matte Varnish as it's getting harder and harder to find MSC for a good price, or at all. All my usual sources only have it in gloss or for the cost of my soul. I still have like 3 bottles of MSC, which I'll continue to use for commissions, but on my own dolls I'll try out the other sealants, to test how I can work with them.
That's enough from me, until next time!
