2021 has come and gone, and we are 3 days into 2022. What a year 2021 was too... I got severe burnout, caught covid, lost my job, my wife lost her job, rebuilt my mental health, established goals for my future and how I want to proceed, and generally I focused on myself. I'm grateful we had the resources for me to do so.
Dollwise I wasn't as proactive as in previous years, as I only managed 30 faceups in 2021, and 39 in 2020. These two last years have been really hard on everyone.
I did manage to crank out a couple more things in December 2021, so I will post those now. I got to finish painting the Iplehouse HID Woman hands, Miracle Doll 1/4 Girl hands, Sugarble Darlene, Dollpamm Loli girl body, a Fairyland RLF Luna, and a Fairyland MNF Miyu. Be prepared for a long post.
Without further ado, onto some pictures under the break!
First up is the Sugarble Darlene in normal skin. This is my first decora style faceup, and I did have help from my friend who the doll belongs to with the glitter placement. She's a hybrid, so she got a body blush too to make the parts match.
Then here is the Dollpamm Loli Girl body in normal skin, blushed to match the Sugarble Darlene head. I absolutely love the little wing tattoos I did on her (they cover inset magnets), and the chrome nails are fun too.
Next up is a cute little Fairyland RealFee Luna boy in tan skin. His ears had to be painted over as he'd gotten chewed up and repaired. He cleaned up nicely though and is cute as a little worried button.
Following are the Iplehouse HID Woman Hands in normal skin with a long pointy nail mod blushed naturally with a black manicure. It was surprisingly difficult to do the mod, as I'd never attempted it before. But it turned out good I feel!
The smaller white skin ones are Miracle Doll 1/4 Girl hands with a fantasy manicure to match her company faceup and body blushing. I can hardly wait to see how she looks all together!
Last, but certainly not least, I painted a Fairyland MNF Miyu in natural skin. He's a very old boy, technically still a CP sculpt as he is from before Luts and CP split. But I am counting him as a Fairyland since they had the rights for the sculpt and was available through them for many years. Anyway, he's a grumpy little thing, getting the eyebrow color right was a pain, but I succeeded in making them blue grey!
I already got a few new commissions lined up as I send out the completed ones this week. I still got a few slots open, so grab them while they're fresh.
Until next time!
