Saturday was nice, so I was able to get a few heads that have been sitting around done for someone else. Yay! Now I have a few more for yet one more person, and I'm done and can work on Dollism stuff!!!
Sunday was not so nice (hot and disgusting, like usual), so I worked on my dolls lol
If they get messed up I can always do them again. And curse a lot while I'm at it.
First, on Thursday I got the materials to make the Unicorn tail for nameless Unoa boy. I must say, it looks awesome. I could use smaller magnets...but thanks to putting a couple dolls up for sale, I suddenly have some, so I might work on it a little before getting some pictures up. But I love it. It's just how I wanted it.
On to other stuff.
Look who it is! :D
The new Soshi/Des got a face! :D
I don't know what that chain is....I found it laying around and decided he needed it... As you can see, the hands (which I covered up with those armband things the old one used to wear. We've regressed. A lot.) which are SD hands, look great. He keeps.
It is very obvious to me that I based the new faceup off the old Shiwoo's faceup, but the eyebrows are two-colored to match his hair and he has freckles now. And a scar, which was a last minute add-in because for some reason my brush skipped when I was blocking in his eyebrow and I decided to go with it. He'd totally have a scar. And, hopefully, the new faceup is better....since the first one I did on my old Shiwoo was like, my fourth faceup ever. Lol. ^^'
I also had to fix my Dollmore Ujee's faceup. He managed to damage the hell out of it somehow....the only thing I can think is that it happened when he faceplanted on my ipad...but I looked him over and he was fine! So it must have been delayed damage. His nose and lip had a huge chip....so I fixed both and kind of cleaned him up a tad (fixed his eye makeup and evened out the eyebrows). AND I found iridescent pastels over the weekend, and added some shinies to him. Cause he needed em. I think he looks better now (though I doubt anyone else would even notice :\). No pictures today, I couldn't bring everyone.
I also did my Migidoll Ell head, which is the third version of my character Marcus Alexander. Guess who he named? XD
Marcus and I have had enough trouble at this point that he will get his own entire post later - when I can get a decent shot of him. Hopefully outdoors and with David. And maybe Alex if they all cooperate. Either way, the head is faceuped, he's fabulous and I think he'd be perfect if MD River wasn't hovering in the future waiting for me to buy him too.....but at least if River doesn't work out or I don't get him, Ell will be exactly what I need.
Mwa ha ha!!!
Ok, I always feel the need to explain this to people so they realize the actual thought and time that has gone into it before rolling their eyes at me. After the book I'm about to write, feel free to roll away, but not before, damnit!!
A while back - a year or more I think as I have no idea where the original doodles went, so they must be in an older sketchbook - I opened up Deviant art to find, on the front page, all MLP fanart, as was pretty much the norm then. It was everywhere. Everyone did My Little Pony all the time and it's all anyone ever saw on DA.
Except for some reason I totally snapped when I saw it that day. I had probably done some art the night before that was ignored and blamed it on MLP, or that was the day that a certain person I watch had posted some art of her own OCs and the very first comment on it was "what ponies are these?", even though they were human and very much her own human characters doing their own OC things. PONIES WTF NO!!!? I ranted around in my office for a half hour and then had to go to a meeting where I thought it would be nice to have Alex go to MLP land, where he would go insane from the cheeriness and color and a murderous rampage would follow where all MLPs would die horrible, gory deaths.
And then I thought it would be even better if he went incognito and was a pony, then they wouldn't see him coming. So I spent that meeting doodling a very angry MLP-looking unicorn/Pegasus-thing with green and purple hair killing MLPs. With blood. Lots of blood. Obviously that was a productive meeting.
This is what happens when my mind wanders.
It was a doodle, so it was crap, and mostly black scribbles filled in with colored pencil...but I knew what it was supposed to be.
Fast forward some time, and I found an MLP generator on DA that I used to create the Alexcorn (cause I found out the unicorn with wings is an Alicorn? So....it made sense to me.) which got me thinking about it again. I bought one of those Muny things from Tokidoki to paint, but never got further than spraying it (someday....). At some point I must have thought it was a good idea to make it into a doll, because I started looking at those Silverbeam ponies on Etsy.....but I never bought one because they're kind of small and pricey for the 3D printed materials IMO (though I've seen one in person now....and I might cave someday anyway). Then I remembered Conie. I spent some time looking at pictures and wouldn't you know it, Conie is capable of really looking pissed from a direct front angle. I did more doodles, this time of Conie, complete with joints and angry face in the note book I currently use, and deemed it good.
I put Conie on my trade list for whatever I was selling last year, but never even found anyone who was selling one (I did find one on DL, but it was for more than a new one cost and had a faceup and blushing that looked not great and that I'd have to remove), so no Conie. I thought my roommate might get me one for my birthday (it was in my WL I sent her) but she opted for Carter instead (yay!) so I still didn't get one.
Then I went to Texas for Doll-A-Kon and The Doll Peddlar was selling them.
Well if that's not fate I don't know what is!!!11!!
I had to buy him blushed, so I went with pink, because I figured I could live with pink more than brown if I never got around to doing him up right, but the day before fathers day I wiped him blank anyway (and it took half the day. I'm still dead. What the hell do they seal these things with?!).
Sunday I finally got round to working on him. And, well, here.
I glued faux furs to the resin mane, and made a new tail with magnet to replace the old one (which is in his box). Like the real Alex, he's never heard of such things as combs. He also has overly-exaggerated eyelashes because, Alex.
Side view. His wings are a tad askew. Both wings and horn are shiny! Not that you can tell. I thought about putting red on the horn, for blood lol but I didn't.
I wanted to give him his "cutie mark" of Alex's black rose tattoo on his butt, but it's so small I failed like, three times in a row, so I quit. I may try again when the weather is better.
You can tell he's Alex, cause
"Bitch, stay away from my coffees."
There's the look.
SO yeah. There you go. Over a year in the making. What's funny is that in Texas the friend I was sharing a room with was flipping though my notebook and found the second set of doodles staring Conie as Alexcorn. She was like "you really were planning this forever!"
Well, yeah. Even my impulse purchases aren't really impulse. lol
And really I feel as though I should get some sort of award for this being the first, and only AU version of Alex I've ever made. I could have a million of them.
And look, here's Ebils! Just cause he cutes and I am selling his like-sized companions so now he needs new ones.
He ditched his wig and is now sporting a cool hat.
Oh, he found a friend already! Sorta.
lol I just thought they were funny sitting on my desk^^''
I doubt they'll hang out much. Alexcorn needs smaller, or lower-domed eyes. He kinda starey.
Hopefully I'll get some pictures of everyone else I worked on over the weekend later on this week. And they won't need a book to go along with them. Well, maybe Marcus. That one photo refuses to center. :P
