AOD Ruo Feng

So here is an update, I was recently commissioned to do a face-up~
Which I'm more then happy to oblige~  I was pretty much given free reign over the colours as long as it was bright colourful and there were freckles XD which is always a bonus for me because I love working with colour =P

So I got sent the head~

He had what I'm guessing is a factory face-up~ he has a bit of damage to his lip, which the owner told me was due to him previously having a lip ring. I sanded it down a bit so that when it came to blushing it wouldn't be too obvious, as some damages can make blushing a lot darker then it should be.

The head all cleaned up, this one was a tough one to clean. The gloss he had on him refused to budge, but in the end I managed to get it off @_@

Here are a few progress shots, not really that much of progress is shown but you get a rough idea XD also before the freckles went on I had a slight panic moment. I hadn't shaken my purity seal and sprayed it onto the head and the whole thing frosted over I was like NUUUUUU!!!!! HOW COULD YOU???!!!!

Luckily K was online and I had panicked about it to her, she then told me that it was ok and that I can save it. And thankfully I was~ I lost some of my line work and colour but those were easily re-applied again. Just the feeling of working on something and then having to start again is not a good feeling, but yush thankfully it was saved and it was sealed properly afterwards~

I actually got rid of some of the stray freckles as the owner didn't like them that much, which I can completely understand, so they were wiped off and the rest were kept~

So that is the final face-up~ He is now all packed and ready to be sent back home to his owner~ I enjoyed working on him and I think I like his lips the best hahaha~ I also added some shimmer powder onto him, but I didn't go OTT hahaha would have looked quite bad if I did OTT on him with that stuff XD

Update 11/03/2012

Whoa... haven't updated in a while, I've been awfully quiet on every end of things, been so busy and trying to do as much as I can after work, and I'm getting uberly tired *sighs* anyway I have quite a lot of update for this post, so be prepared to be spammed with loads of pictures~

So first is first, this was done a while back. Custom House Ai not too sure on the actual mold... I get confused easily, so like I don't know if the mold is Ai or it's the line name... none the less it's a Custom House n_n For this one I was asked to just add more colour on to the face-up and to add freckles, which was a pretty easy job n_n

These are the before shots of the original factory face-up.

And these are the after shots of the face-up~

So that is the Custom House done, I'll let you guys in on a secret. I actually did this before the Supia Rosy =X so it's bad that I didn't update it when I did get it done hahahaha...

Moving on, next is a CP Juri. This was done for the winner of the free face-up raffle n_n I regret not taking pictures of it when it arrived to me, from what I could tell it had it's eyes opened and had it's cheeks sanded down. The eyes were done quite decently, but the cheeks... they were so roughly done, I had no choice but to smooth them down myself.

These pictures were taken after I had finished sanding down the cheeks to smooth them out. I was actually in the process of taking the face-up off before I remembered that I was to take some pictures for reference XD

So that is the head, I kinda wished I was able to sand down the left cheek a bit more, but I couldn't cause if I had sanded it anymore, it would have made the cheeks un-even *sighs* so yer, she has a dip on the left side, but at least it's less rough now.

I had to blush match the sanded areas of the cheeks due to the fact that she had some yellowing on her, so yer I blushed matched her cheeks hahaha and then I gave her a natural look well as natural as possible, seeing as I've noticed that my blushing is actually quite heavy... so yer... hahaha my line work is a but meh lately as well... no not lately, has been meh since I started hahahaha.

And moving onto the final one, K asked me to do a face-up on her Fairyland Riff, he was lovely to work on, I think K plans on putting a tattoo on this boy which I bet will look awesome!! XD So yer when I was doing this boy, I wanted to try and do a colourful face-up, there are quite a few colours in my set of pastels that I rarely use, and when I get to do whatever I like with a doll I like to try and use some of these colours. I started off using purple, and then I wanted to see what blue was like, and well... I ended up just keeping as one eye purple one eye blue XD

Well that's it, all the dollie stuff I have done until now. Hopefully I'll get more in the future, well I hope so hahaha there are loads of dolls that I would love to work on, and so many more plans to complete~
