Hello again! Hope you had a great weekend and you started the new week on the right foot. As for me, I’m very happy to say I finally finished painting my Junia on Friday and I also painted both Shiny Fairy May and Peak’s Woods Sassy Rosy on Saturday. I was going to post all the progress for May and Rosy’s face ups here in the blog, but I’m not sure what happened with my computer today that I lost all the photos I took over the weekend, including all the photos I took today of the dolls all done.
I’m kind of sad I lost all the photos, but I hope I can retake some of them soon and they will be better than before. Of course it’s impossible to take face up progress photos now because I can’t go back in time, but at least I savaged one photo I took today because I had it opened in Photoshop for the magazine tag. In the meantime you will have to bear with me while I can take more photos and show you the rest of the face ups.
I’m happy that finally all my dolls are painted, and though they all have mistakes and irregularities I can work with all of them in photos now. I’m not too convinced on May’s face up, but I ran out of airbrush cleaner so any changes will have to wait. And who knows, maybe the face up will grow on me.
Anyways, to celebrate 17 years of the modern BJD, Xanadu thought of a great idea to share the love for the hobby. So here are the rules of her tag:
1. You need to think of a name for your magazine.
2. Choose a theme (it can be Halloween or something completely different).
3. Take an appropriate photo using your own BJD’s.
4. Use your own editing program (let us know which one you used).
5. Most of all . . . have fun!
And here’s my cover, with Frida, the fairy of the forest making her first appearance:
As you can see, I chose a magical theme for my magazine, where you can find all kind of information from what to do if you find a fairy to recipes for potions and enchantments.
I used Adobe Photoshop for the edition of the cover and called my magazine Magica.
I uploaded the unedited photo to Flickr, so I can show it here too:
Hope you guys like how my girl looks. I’m quite happy with the result. If I ever get better at face ups, I will probably re do it with the same colors and style because I couldn’t imagine her looking any other way now.
Have an amazing week!
