Resin eye first pass! Printed greyscale just to test size, attachment method and gloss application.
Custom faceups, mods, and the like
I repainted my obitsu gal this week :) Next time I’ll try decals for eyes, getting them even and smooth is way too hard for me.
I modded Nemu’s nose a bit and gave her a new faceup. I was going for a more glamorous SD-style look, but I’m not sure yet about the super thick eyelashes.
This weeked I customized Asuka’s makeup a bit – re-did the lips, thinned and darkened the eyebrows, and add a bit more blush here and there. It was helpful to find out that I could mod the eyebrows without removing them, saving me some time and aggravation in getting them symmetrical. Elf ears are made…
Freya is a new anthro BJD collab project between Hujoo and and US retailer JunkySpot. Of course I can’t resist the kitties, and the fact that she can wear Azone Pureneemo clothes is an extra plus! And this is really for real my last faceup for a while, I’m completely out of MSC.
I happened to get my hands on SQ-labs‘s Miyuki head, which had been on my wishlist for a little while. My plan was to give her a really cute and cheerful expression, and insert a bit more smiley-ness into the sculpt by painting darker corners on the mouth. She looked quite strange on the DD3…
She’s ready! Still has no name, though ^_^; For the faceup I was able to use more watercolor pencils this time, they are better suited to vinyl than resin. I still ended up going over everything with acrylic at the end to get a cleaner edge.
I think the mouth and eyebrows need another pass with the paintbrush, but she’s looking good so far!
