✦ My faceup progress diary! ✦

Recommended Posts

Since I've just started doing DD faceups, I thought I'd make a thread here to log my progress. It's taking a lot of self restraint not to just commission a professional right now, haha. My victim is my 2nd girl, an original Mirai head I bought off Mandarake. She's asymmetrical and has really deep eye sculpting which makes painting difficult. A lot of newer DD heads look flatter, somehow? But I love her angular, old school anime head. 

First attempt is pretty bad...

Second attempt isn't amazing but I feel like my line control is getting better. I don't really like the shape of her lashes and I tried to do a kind of mock open-mouth thing by adding depth which didn't work out. I'll try again next time!

What do you mean the second attempt isn't amazing? That is INCREDIBLE. I could probably never do something like this on my first and second try. Please keep going; I NEED to see more of your work. :)

Thank you! I have done a few BJD faceups, but I'm a beginner there also and haven't done any in over a year 😬

Is there anything stopping you from doing it? 💕

Ahhh thank you so much 🥰 !! Trust me, there was a lot of scrubbing things out with a wet cloth and redoing them lol. And up close it's a lot more grainy. Thank you for being so encouraging, I will definitely keep trying to improve!

Basically lack of knowledge...

If you ever want to give it a go and talk to another newbie about it, do feel free to message me 😄 it seems quite daunting but can be fun if you really want to try it.

Oh, that's awesome!  As long as you're having fun doing them~  But these already look pretty good!
