I have been such a busy bee this past month, and have lots of new work to show. So much in fact that I will need to split them up over two blog posts as to not be utterly overwhelming. It really is a lot!
Today I will show my Volks YoSD Ayumu, a Dollshe Molly, and my Resinsoul Ai, who is my 500th completed faceup.
This also means I will post my giant faceup collage. I will need to start a new one!
Without further ado, onto the pictures under the cut!
First up is my Volks YoSD Ayumu in pure skin normal. He had his faceup from 2012 still, but it was horribly stained from a wig, and I am notorious for having to paint my own dolls, sooo... redone he got!
Here's his before and after collage, I think he looks way better with some nice freckles along his cheeks and nose! I need to get a good picture of him with this twin sister (my wife's Volks YoSD Chinatsu) who I painted previously.
Then next up we got a Dollshe Molly painted from head to toe by me for commission. I was given artist choice, so they became a cute little orange tabby type cat. I even made some acrylic eyes for them. The owner is happy with the end result, as am I!
And last, but certainly not least, is my Resinsoul Ai in normal skin. She bears my 500th face up! I've been a faceup artist for literally 10 years now (a little less for commission), and it's so fun to see the development of my style over the last decade.
My RS Ai was my first resin bjd, and had also received my first faceup all those years ago. Little could I have known that I'd stick with this for so long, and I don't see myself stopping anytime soon.
I made a quick collage of all the faceups she's had by me so far, spanning from August 2011 to October 2021. I repainted her every 99 faceups so she could always be the 100th. Always in the same theme, but with improved skill and style. This faceup is her best one yet I feel!
Now for one more thing, my monster collage split into sections of 50.
I can't even post the collage in its entirety because of how long it is. But believe me, my computer has been struggling with opening/saving it despite a good portion of the layers flattened.
I want to thank you all who've commissioned and put your trust in me to handle and paint your dolls. I couldn't have gotten where I am now without you. Thank you, from the bottom of my heart, thank you.
Here's to many more exciting years as I work towards 1000 competed faceups!
P.S.: I will do another blog post in the next few days for the remaining faceups I have done recently!
