Aesthetics of March 2015
This month I relaunched my face-up comission shop and gladly got some heads to paint right away. But since I had had such fun painting the Teenies of my friends, I started out with redoing Hani's face-up. She had started to look a bit bland next to the others, so an update was due. I tried to keep the worried expression she's had but make the blushing more vivid. I added a hart to her cheek a bit later, once I noticed it was missing =_=
Then I got two heads from a customer. And she wanted basically the opposites for them. Above is a head which I instantly thought looked miraculously like my Manna character and luckily the customer asked for a pastely sweet face-up fit for a lolita character. This is a very nice sculpt from a small new doll company and I hope that more people will get this doll since it is so darn cute!
The other head was a slightly modded Migidoll head. I have wanted to do a face-up on a Migidoll, seeing as their dolls can be face-upped so versatilily. When the head was blank I wouldn't have recognised it as a Miho. (Well truth be told I'm no expert on Migi, but still.) But as soon as the lashes and brow was done, the doll started to look familiar.
Well, I hope to paint many more heads in the coming months! It seems that Lil'Loki isn't as distracting to comission work as I had feared as I had these two heads done in record time. :) And let's face it, with the latest shopping spree I had I need the comission money :D
