Continuing my sunny weather faceup projects, I was able to do a custom faceup for SWS DDH-16 head. Volks did a pre-order for these heads last year and I ordered one without a specific plan in mind. Eventually I decided on a red dragon themed girl, and I was able to trade my Flesh color head for SWS to make it work.
I might end up making new eyes for her, but for now she looks pretty good with these ‘Dragon’ style pink eyes that I made. She’s wearing a Volks outfit and hair accessory with some resin horns from Taobao.
The horns are very lightweight but even with a powerful magnet it’s tricky to keep them in place. Having the headband and hairpiece there makes it more complicated. I’m thinking I’ll airbrush the horns black/red… at some point.
Up close the details look neater than I remembered – soft focus is kind to slightly imperfect faceups! Her scale details are painted with metallic gold acrylic paint, which ended up looking pretty neat layered with the pink cheek blush.
I’ve got more faceups to post and another batch in progress, including a dragon boy, so look forward to it!
