Whee two posts in a row!!
But I have pictures (sorta), so I thought I'd post them.
First, the teeth before I finished them.
They are ungodly messy here. I knew it when I did it, but holy hell it looks worse in the photo D:
and they are a little crooked....I think I fixed that, but who knows?And lol the msc in his nose XD
I did clean that out...I had to poke at it with tools, but it came out...
So after it dried, I got back in there and cleaned up all the roughness, and epoxy clinging to his mouth, fixed the lines, and hopefully just made it better.
Sadly none of my photos turned out...but I need to redo some of his faceup, so hopefully I'll get more later.
This is what I have so far!
:D I love how he turned out!!
First, I love that he can wear the longer wig now. I know they're all the same head, but I swear only I and II ever looked good in this wig. 2.5 always wore shorter hair (he can still rock the short hair, but now he can wear all the wigs! Well, almost all. One doesn't look good on him). I really think my Kara Klums, despite having similar faceups and being the same person, do look different. Some of them can't wear certain styles as well as the others, II takes way better photos than any of them (III being the next most photogenic), I(one) doesn't do short hair at all (it's bad) and Azrael looks like he's smiling while the rest of them look miserable. Or very focused....I think this one looks focused now. Eyelashes may ruin that. Another reason not to do them....
I'm actually afraid to put the piercings on him now. I sorta like him as is. I'll at least do the eyebrow. That won't mess him up.
Thanks to giving Chibi Alex the eyes that came with my LTF, I had an extra pair of the Alex-blue eyes in 14mm that I gave him (he had 16s in....they were huge), and in person they look so much more striking now, with all that dark around them. I spent more time on his eyes than I think I've ever done on any doll, and I think it paid off.
Though there are a few things I need to fix:
• His teeth aren't white. I guess I thinned out my paint too much lol. They need another coat.
• I want to taper his eyebrows better
• I also want to see if I can draw upper eyelashes on him...I've done it with Mini, and I liked it, but not since. I don't want to put them in if I don't have too
• Alex is an insomniac and I'm not getting that here. I feel like I could have used more of that blue-grey around his eyes...I might try that.
That's it! Easy fixes I can do tonight. Along with the Alpha Omega tatt on his hand and 2.5 on the other hand. He looks kinda naked without them, and 2.5 never had his number anyway. It said II since that was II's body first XD
Again, I only number them because people ask me. I know which is which, I could literally tell with my eyes closed. IRL (if there was such a thing) Alex isn't numbered. Unless you count the 13 on his shoulder XD'''''
More attempts to get the teeth!
This is probably my best shot, and I had to lighten the hell out of it in PS.
I don't know why his eye is so massive and starey here. It's not like it's huge...he has the half-closed eyes.
And Alex I wearing the new wig!! He hung out with me while I was working on 2.5 (I always have a finished one around when I redo one of their faceups....it helps to look even though I know what I'm supposed to be doing).
Despite what it looks like, he does have eyes. His lashes are insane....I think I need to cut them.
I love the wig. I will need to moisten it every time I want to take pics (because it's huge), and I want to try and straighten it, but it's perfect. It even fits! Which is amazing since he's got the tiny head of doom. It looks great on him (not on 2.5 - it was scary on him D: ), and it shall be his wig from now on. Totally worth all my pp monies! :D
