I've been super productive this month, not only did I do 6 faceups, but I also finished a manicure, a gender mod, and the long leg tattoos on a long-time commission. I feel pretty good about all the work I've done so far! I will break up the work into a couple of posts over the next few days, or the post will just go on forever.
The little FYI I want to cover is that I am going to start charging for old faceup removal, as that takes a lot of effort and time, and even materials. I sometimes sit as long as 1.5 hours at removing a faceup thoroughly so I can do my own. Charges start at €5, and can go up if the faceup is hard to remove. Thank you for understanding!
Anyway, sculpts I will show today are a Napalm Doll Hush and her hands, an Asleep Eidolon Agnes (who got the gender mod from angel to girl body), and a Dollmore Judith Zinna. Let's hop on under the read more break for the pictures!
First up ist he Napalm Doll Hush in purple/lavender skin. She's a mature 33cm doll, so the head is actually fairly small. She was a fun challenge for me to paint, especially that teeny tiny tattoo above her right eye. I drew it in pencil first, and then painted over it with brush once the placement was right. The hand tattoos are without any sketching before as the owner wanted them to look home done.
Then next up is the Asleep Eidolon Agnes in normal skin. She'd come with the limited company faceup, but the company had forgotten to omit the magical gold emblem on the forehead and the dots under the eyes. I wouldn't have been able to remove them without severely damaging the faceup otherwise, so the client and I agreed to have me redo her and match her eyebrows and lashes to her golden wig.
Her company faceup was lovely, but a little flat looking. Sadly I couldn't get all the black paint out of her mouth crevice, no matter how much I soaked her in isopropyl alcohol and picked at it with a pin carefully. At least I could cover most of it with the new faceup!
Then last for today, but certainly not least, is a dear friend's Dollmore Judith Zinna in white skin. The inspiration was the 1940s Japanese Advertisment posters. I've worked with the 1940s look twice before, but I think here I pulled it off the best. She will get a beautiful vintage inspired wig, which I helped my friend order through Taobao. She's gonna be gorgeous once all put together!
She'd arrived with a faceup by a previous owner, which was pretty close to what my friend wanted, other than the freckles. Personally I feel the old faceup was beautifully done, even if the previous artist went a little overboard with the blue blushing. Either way, my friend is happy, as am I.
So that is all for today lovely people. I got a couple more photos to edit and I should have a new blog post up in a week. Until next time!
