Well, I got hit hard with the crud in December and wasn’t as productive as I hoped I’d be. I did manage some work before I succumbed to illness in the beginning of the month, but it was way less than I planned for. Oh well, at least I did get some things done!
Things I have to show for today are a Popovy Sisters Tawny Owl on Body IV in coral skin, a Fairyland Feeple60 El Elf Event A 2021 head, and a Doll Family-H 1/3 scale Small bust piece. The last two belong together so. Just as a quick warning, this post does contain doll nudity.
Without further ado, onto some pictures and blathering under the break!
First up is the Popovy Sisters Tawny Owl on Body IV in coral skin. I really love how her blushing came out, though I was struggling a bit with the detailing on her. It might be time to update my brushes again. I did enjoy painting her hands quite a bit though.
Then next up we have the Fairyland Feeple60 El Elf Event A 2021 head in natural skin. Painting such a unique expression with lip biting was a fun challenge for me. The peony on her temple was entirely done with pastels, and I am really proud of how it turned out. I’m honestly a little sad I didn’t take a video showing off the shimmer and detail work on this head. I went as far as painting the inside of the lip a different color than the outside to make it look like she is wearing lipstick.
And then last but certainly not least is the DF-H 1/3 Small bust piece in normal yellow. The client asked me to colormatch the F60 head and this bust to match better through blushing as I do not feel confident in taking on dye commissions. I think the match turned out pretty nice as the colors were quite a bit different.
I’m hoping that I am finally well enough to tackle the last couple of commissions I need to finish by January 9th to be able to ship them back on the 10th. This is also the reminder that I’ll be away from home for 6 weeks from January 11th through February 22nd. There will be likely a small price increase when I get back because the cost of living has skyrocketed here and the utility prices have tripled.
That’s all from me for now, until next time!
