Aesthetics of... April-June 2016
Yeahh... I have so totally forgotten to update my face-up portfolios! =_= Gomen! I took a small break though in May, since I had entrance exams to go study next fall. But before and after the exams I did manage to do some face-ups. Now my shop is again fully open, if anyone wants to commission me! ^-^
Anyway, first up was an Yrie owned by Fairchildren. I was very thrilled to do this, since her Yrie has been among my favourites of this sculpt. ...And also because I have wanted to paint an Yrie to see if I would really like to own this sculpt myself too. :P And yes, I do! It was sooo nice to paint this doll, I love those lips and with the lid creases the eyes look so nice as well ^-^ This slightly cranky expression is also quite suited for Yrie, she looks to be full of attitude. It would be a welcome change into my crew of jesters and sissies.
Then there was a face-up + blushing commission for a Nanuri head and mismatched torso+hands, that needed to be blushed to resin match. The pictures are aweful, I don't even know how the colours look so off, but all-in-all it was a nice face-up to do. I have done this same job previously as well, so it was another 'upgrade' work :3
From the same customer I also got to work on a Breakaway minifee. I now know why this sculpt used to be so hyped½ Breakaway has very lovely features that can be made into a boy or a girl (as it is here). And hey, open mouths always get to me! XD It was close if I hadn't started to hunt down the SD version of this sculpt to be my Fyrd back when I wanted to get him in resin.
And as the cherry on top, I got to paint this lovely tan Ginger for Velvet. The actual head is a bit more red, but I could get the colours just right on my monitor. (I think it looked ok in PS though, but now in Flickr it looks way more orange.) I love LM sculpts, but Ginger has not been among my favourites. But Velvet was smitten with him ever since he was first released. She always said that she'd need him in tan though so I was so happy for her wen LM announced their tan event and she could get her dream doll! And seeing this boy blank made me really appreciate this sculpt more! He has a very nice mouth and nice cheeks. And this tan is so beautiful, OMF! Now I'm really contemplating whether to get myself a tan Sophia to be an SD Alistair. I had almost corssed that girl off my list, but now I really want a tan doll and she's the perfect character for one. And I love Sophia's sculpt ^-^
