Face-up Fantasy #04 updates
So I did not post any progress of my Face-ups for a while now. As mentioned earlier I had some time to get things done on my practice head! What you will immediately recognize the „new mouth“ of hat particular head. Yes I just tried out my first modding. It is not finished yet though. It needs to be refined and done. The modding was more exhausting I thought it would be! But it turned out not too bad for the first time.
Pre-modding – After the long break I had to get used to my brushes! That’s why I kept things simple on the first try. I worked with brushes and acrylics.To make things different this time I wanted to give her some little vampire teeth, and they kinda turned out pretty adorable! Also used some more blushing to make a fitting appearance. Also some of my new own home made eyes! 🙂 Ah I have to try out my other new designs aswell this weekend!
I always admire people who have more experience with Face-ups and their close-up shots with such neat lines and brush strokes! I hope I can get at least near this one day! 🙂 Trying my best!
This Face-up got actually two different states. I filled in the inner eye line with a lighter color. A good practice and fun too! I thought maybe I can see where my face-up journey is going or at least seeing a style? But to be honest it might be a bit too early to say things like this. As just in my beginner state there is so much time to experiment and trying out different things.
Fun fact: This wig and eyes are actually for my DD Megurine. Which just I will collect this weekend! 🙂
This Face-up however took me some more time, layers and blsuhing. And I ‘m quite proud of it. It hurt a little when I removed it for good.
It was a lot of fun and gave her more personality! But the dangerous thing however is, that you might like a Face-up and character so much that you want to keep the Face-up. Haha and that’s something I don’t want – my practice heads should remain for practice only. I actually edited the teeth for this picture for a better view!
What I realized in my „active Face-up week“is that it is kind of hard for me so draw Face-ups out of the blue. And that is actually what I am doing with all this practice. And when a Face-up is done checking which eyes and wig might suit for a couple of picture, before removing the Face-up again.
Don’t get me wrong I really love character design, that’s also why I am doing this, but I have to improve a lot more before getting deeper in my designs. First I have to get the basics done. So that’s when I had a more „clear character“ in mind.
But let’s see where my journey takes me. I Hope you enjoyed my little progress, have a nice week. And please look forward to my DD Megurine Luka unboxing!
