Aesthetics of April 2015
A massive comission update ahead :) This month I got just two clients, but both had multiple heads/parts to do. It has been a few weeks filled with pastel dust but the results are worth it.
First up I got an order to blush basically an entire Kid Delf centaur doll, all in blue shades as the character is related to water. So the face-up is again one of my most colourful ones. I hadn't seen a Luts Berry before, but it is a cute little sculpt. The eyes somehow remind me of Soom Yrie...
The hooves. Actually just one of each back and front leg is pictured, but of course I had all four of them to do. They just all look exactly the same so I didn't bother squeezing them all into the same picture. The client of course got previews of all four.
Those trasparent hooves were a bit tricky... The resin actually has a slight yellow tint when it is this thick, so my first blue layers made them look black-green! But luckily a few more layers moremade them blue. And you can see just how much darker they become when stringed with the other parts. Those are the same hooves! :D
The torso, also with blue tones. That small transparent part was much easier to blush, since the resin wasn't as thick. Overall the torso was left quite light, since they needed to match the unblushed thighs.
The tail was a work of art to beginwith and I hope I did it justice :)
Hands blushing. The client wanted blue palms, to match the rest of the theme.
I also got the wings for this pegasus to blush, but I'm not sure if I'll be able to finish them by the end of this month...
And onto the next comission :) I got three heads from one client, all to have fairly natural face-ups. This gorgeous DES needed a bit more smoky eyes than the other two though :)
I haven't done face-ups for many dolls with eyes this big, so I was worried if I would have eyes to take the pictures with. Luckily the 18mm eyes were a fit, although I'm sure the doll would have looked even better with 20mm.
A Kivi who will end up with red hair/green eyes combo :) That's why the eyebrows are more brown than what I usually do. Also, there are freckles, if you look closely :)
Ans last but definitely not the least, a Twing-key with a girly face-up. When I first found BDJs, DoD's dolls were the ones I fell for. Since then I have switched over to Soom, but these dolls have a special nostalgic feel to them still :) So I'm glad I got to paint one!
