It's May, so now I am gonna post the completed work from April, but before I get into that I wanted to go over the FYI.
The cost of living has gone up horribly this year along with my rent, so I needed to increase my prices as well. Please see Commission & Prices for the new costs. All estimates I have already provided are valid and won't be changed.
Commissions are still open, so feel free to contact me for a quote or a slot!
Now with the FYI out of the way, let's cover what aesthetics I did the last month. I worked on a Dollzone Po, an Iplehouse EID Gentle Akando, a pair of Miracle Doll 1/4 girl feet, a Dollmore Kid Sona, and a pair of Fairyland MNF Roller Skates.
Without further ado, onto some pictures under the break!
First up is the Dollzone Po I painted for myself. I'm not entirely fond of how mature the faceup turned out, but for now it can stay. I'll likely repaint them sooner than later, and also paint the long noodle dragon body as well.
Next up we have the Iplehouse EID Gentle Akando in white skin. This boy arrived with a Faceup that sadly made him too dark for the newer body his owner wanted to put him on. He also had mellowed over time so he required a color matching as well. It’s so rare I get to work on more realistic sculpts, even if I love it!
Here is his before and after his spa treatment. His old Faceup wasn’t bad, just not quite what the client wanted for their OC. I was more than happy to redo him! His eyebrows took on a life of their own, but I like how they turned out, as does the client. I was almost sad I didn’t get to do freckles on this lovely redhead, but that’s just because I love doing freckles on dolls.
Following that, we have a pair of Miracle Doll 1/4 girl feet in white skin. These are specific to a sculpt and are to match the default Faceup and a hand blushing I did some time back.
Then here we have a Dollmore Kid Sona in pale skin. Here the client wanted her to look like she’d been on the sun a lot and it was a lot of fun to blush and paint her. Normally this character has blonde hair, but the client likes to swap wigs so I offered to do neutral brown eyebrows and lashes, to make wig swapping easier.
And last, but certainly not least, is a pair of Fairyland MNF Roller Skates in white skin painted in a pastel rainbow theme. They were a fun challenge to paint and blush, especially as my acrylic paints were fighting me on the wheels. I really need to invest in some better paints for things like that. I don’t like using watercolors for bigger surfaces or thicker coats as it’s more likely that the sealant won’t adhere and secure the watercolor paint. Either way, I love how these turned out.
That’s all from me for now, until next time!
