Cleo dead tired repaint by FrankieNadine Cleo dead tired repaint by FrankieNadine
My first commission,
finished :0

Removed her golden streaks, she looked like my grandmothers
Christmas tree.

It's just sad I don't have a proper lens, the vintage macro lens that I have for my eos has gotten some moist in it's inner works. Maybe I should sell my next customs with the goal of buying a half decent macro lens.

I think this was a Dead Tired Cleo. She comes without bangs :)

She has beautiful eyes. I also love the barely-there eyebrows. I sometimes think eyebrows are the most important feature, as they totally change expression.

And is she wearing tin foil? Haha. :)

I didn't sell her.
She was painted for someone,
but my last repaint sold for 120.
But she came with clothing and body painting.

I prefer her without the gold tinsel. :)

I don't know why they put it in.. why not some blond and brown streaks?

That does sound much better.
I'll probably end up rerooting any dolls I have that have the tinsel. :<

She looks wonderful!

How did you remove the golden streaks without leaving a piece of them in the doll's head?
Reply
:iconfrankienadine:
FrankieNadine Featured By Owner Oct 1, 2012  Professional Photographer
Oh,
I just took a pair of tweezers and pulled them out,
the golden streaks are added later I think, because I looked up the both ends in each rot hole,
held them both and they came out fairly easy.

I hope that helps

Oh, I get it =) looks easier than I thought, I wish I could afford to buy dolls for customize, Cleo would be a perfect base doll for my OC Araci.

um, do you use watercolour pencils?~ and if so, what kind? Ive only been using acrylics, and it kinda is hard for tiny stuff...~
Reply
:iconfrankienadine:
FrankieNadine Featured By Owner Sep 30, 2012  Professional Photographer
I use acrylics :0
I use a water color pencil to sketch the shape of the eyes to make sure they are the same.
The brand is Caran d'Ache, if you buy that brand, be sure to check if you got water color, they also have water resistant pencils... not what you want.
