As I finished DIM Love body customization for my Natalie I discovered that DollShe oriental skintone is too dark for it. So I recreated the faceup on DollShe fresh head, with some alterations. I tried to copy the eyebrows, though the rest of faceup is much lighter in person due to a skintone difference. Still, it’s the same Natalie. She turned out younger though, and I’m so happy about the result.
I cut off the upper eyelids a bit, so the eyelashes have more room, and deepened the mouth corners.
Whispering Grass Natalie is a BJD head sculpted by me and casted at DollShe craft.
I bought a DIM love body for my Natalie, and it’s a great body (otherwise I wouldn’t choose it) but I had to do a plenty of mods to it.
DIM body is on the left, i-Doll body is on the right for the comparison purpose, as i-Doll is a nice realistic body, but it’s just too big for the character I have in mind.
“Before” photo is on the left, “after” is on the right.
The most noticeable mods:
- additional pieces inserted into the shoulders to make them wider,
- the breasts are made more flat and hanging down,
- knee-thigh area is refined to create some muscle shape there.
There are a plenty of less noticeable mods, lot of them are internal, both subtractive and additive with use of Apoxie Sculpt. I promise to make a full mod chart as I did for FacoDoll before: http://ira-scargeear.tumblr.com/post/63538594412
I’m waiting for ImplDoll heeled feet now to complete the body, because my lady needs a pretty heeled shoes.
Also it looks like I need to paint another Natalie head in DollShe fresh instead of oriental, for a better skintone match.
Do you like a new proportions and shapes?
Some sunset photos again.
We had a massive rain today.
Another set of sunset photos from today.
Shot with Canon EOS 100D and Carl Zeiss Jena Pancolar 50 f/1.8. Looks like this lens will be my main lens despite it’s manual.
