I have several new things to show, but for once I will go into the FYI first before I show the newest work:
I recently lost my job, and due to how they let me go, I cannot get unemployment until April because I am technically still employed until the end of this month (March 2021). I am gonna have to be frugal with my spending, to stretch my savings as much as I can. Don't worry, my wife and I have an emergency fund that covers 3 months of our expenses. Fortunately my wife is still employed, so there's a good chance we can stretch the emergency fund even further.
As to what this means for my commissions, is that I raised my prices. I've been undercharging for ages considering the skill and experience that I have. Thank you for understanding!
All current commissions that I have agreed to take on will remain at the quoted price. So no sudden extra charges for those!
Now, for the work I want to show I have my Dragondoll Cheng, a Gulliver Small Studio Xiaoxi Micro Mermaid, and the Iplehouse J.I.D. Body. Be warned, the last set of pictures has doll nudity.
Without further ado, onto some pictures under the break!
So first up is my Dragondoll Cheng color matched to IoS white skin. My poor 12 year old boy was once upon a time white skin, but is now a very buttery tone. So I had to lighten him quite a bit so he'd match his new IoS Class80 body. I also finally admitted to myself that he need scales along his face, like his daughter Talulah (my Dollzone Chinese Dragon Girl). The scales really shine!
And just one more quick comparison to his last faceup from 2017. This is the 4th faceup I have given him, and the 5th he's had. His first faceup was the company default and made him look like a vulcan drag queen.
Then next we have the Gulliver Small Studio Xiaoxi (micro mermaid) in white and orange skin. This little guy is only 5cm long, literally the size of my pinky. Painting the face was a challenge, but despite my brushes striking, I am still satisfied with the work on him. This tiny thing has functional elbows and wrists!
A picture of him in my hand, in case you didn't believe just how small he is. The freckles along the face are shiny gold, which is really difficult to pick up with the camera, but I promise you they are there.
Last, but certainly not least, I'm sharing the Iplehouse J.I.D. girl body with glamour bust and in special real skin. She got a very natural blush with freckles along the upper torso to match with the freckles along the face. I also painted both the flat and high heeled feet.
Well that's it for today. I have some more work on my desk to complete so I am hoping to post another blog update at the end of the week.
Until next time!
