Hur hur I got a head.
Even though I had totally planned on getting a Mirodoll body first, and a head later. It may end up not working, but it's a start.
I had a very short list of sculpts that might work for Logan (I can't get used to calling him James), and by chance I found one today on the MP for a great price, in the color I wanted, so I couldn't pass it up. Dollzone Cosmo was one of four heads I liked that were pointed out to me by various DOA peeps who read my "What sculpt could make a decent Wolverine?" thread, and I did like him, so I did a half-ass mock-up yesterday. It looked ok, and finding him this morning sealed the deal.
So then I did a slightly less crappy mock-up (only slightly less)
Could use some eyes....
I think he has potential!! He will of course have black hair...the blue was just so it could be seen on that black background (and a nod to back in the day when blue was the over-used black highlight color for hair). Alls I did other than the hair was use the burn tool to darken places on the sculpt, so I should be able to get this look easily with pastels.
I have an idea of how to do the hair with fur. I'll have to glue, but who cares.
The only things that will trip this up are the head not fitting on the body, or looking horrible or the head not looking good with my other two who are not changing. The tiny eyes worry me a tad....but it might be ok.
Normally I would wait until the body is in hand before I do extensive faceup work like this will be, but I'm not sure I can wait XD
In other news I broke the freaking Souldoll body while I was getting it ready to sell!!! I'm so pissed. I think I'll try and sell it (damaged disclosed of course) separately from the head now.....Ugh. I have never broken a finger before....and of course they don't sell hands so I can't replace it (which I totally would have done). It really sucks. That's like, $50 I am going to have to knock off the price.... :P
