Commission updates for MayWong

MayWong was one of my first customers but it has taken me a while to getting around to her heads. The main reason is because I am behind on all my commissions but also because I was trying to read up on the manga Inuyasha so I can do the characters justice. These are the only two heads from her that are not based on Inuyasha characters as far as I can tell but I have gotten to a point in the manga where I feel I know the characters fairly well and will be starting in on them soon.

CH Stella + wigs & Custom House The Ai Girl Body

I'm getting ready to post my girl up on evilbay so I took a bunch of photos of her. If anyone is interested, CH SD girl bodies are also quite nice. As with most SD bodies, it's a bit trickier to pose them due to the weight but once again, CH shows their years in this industry with a very nice natural look. Out of all the dolls I've had the chance to play with CH hands and feet have the most mobility without any compromise to stability. I'll do side by side comparisons of various SD bodies soon.

EDIT: Her starting bid will be $325 + shipping. If anyone is interested here feel free to leave a comment or contact me since I don't love using ebay.

Light of Day

Hah! I took awful awful pictures last night thinking I could function at four in the morning. I took some new shots outside for better lighting to show the faceups better.

Birthday Weekend

My birthday is a Palindrome this year! It's on 11-22-11 but I celebrated with some friends this Saturday to avoid Thanksgiving weekend. I was still fairly productive though. I finished two commissions and worked on my own Custom House Prayer Choa. Here are some pics. The commissions turned out fairly well but I only took pictures of one so far. This is Eden redone. You will remember her from before.

CH Stella is Done!

And I don't know if I liked her better before or not. One think I know is that I will try out softer looks without line-work or perhaps just very little line-work. I think the lashes and the brows and lip liner distracts from the beauty of the sculpt. If I were to redo her, I would do the same pastel work but keep the eyebrow lines softer and the lower lashes very short in a very light brown. I wouldn't add lashes and I would not use a dark color to line the upper lid.

You can see in the first photo that her eyebrows are not perfectly level. I'm ok with that and I like how it gives her a slightly snarky look. I would have more photos but my camera batteries pooped out. Pls enjoy and let me know what you think!

EDIT: I need to fix her lashes...but she's basically done. I have some wigs I wanted to photo her in but next time...and yes I am still working on commissions. It'll take some time since I can only do it on the weekends.

Why you don't always need line-work

Custom House Stella W.I.P.

I'm sure you all know I'm a big fan of Custom House. This is their Stella sculpt. I am debating between keeping her or my CH Prayer Choa. I think I will know more after I finish my Choa faceup.

I'm tempted to leave her faceup as is but I think I will add lashes and brows. Hopefully she will only get better.

Commission updates

So Audry is completed and approved but I don't have a return address to send her off to since the owner had ordered the head from Volks and had her sent directly to me!!! I have sent an e-mail to the owner but have not had a reply yet. Hopefully she will be claimed. This is a photo of her glossed. Her banks keep falling into her face so I didn't put her on a body for a photo.
