My JID Asa, a gorgeous BJD that I have had for months finally got some face colour yesterday. As soon as I got her, I made her something to wear, but I was undecided in how to tackle her face up. I tried a couple of different temporary looks just trying things on, but wasn’t happy enough with any of the results to commit to them. I decided to think on it for a while. So I left her with some lips on and set her where I could look at her everyday and get to know her a little better.
Well yesterday it was time! She was tired of waiting and I was tired of poor Asa looking at me mournfully with only lips! Here she is as I received her….
I was soooo excited to get her! She is my first real BJD. I also have a 60cm Obitsu girl but Asa is different. She’s resin, for one thing, so she’s quite substantial, and although she doesn’t like to sit, she poses much better then the Obitsu. Much more natural looking. I will have to play with her stringing and joints a little to see if I can help her to sit better. Someone on DoA can likely help me with that. For now though on with the pics and paint!
Isn’t she lovely?
There’s a close up of her unpainted face. Her random default eyes look like one is cloudy. It isn’t. It’s bad lighting and likely a finger smudge….. my bad!
After I made her a dress (some time ago) I did play around with the face up, but left only the lips (as I mentioned earlier) Here’s how she looked as she waited for me to get my act together and stop fooling around with commissions and projects for other dolls, lol!
Here’s a full length showing her little frock…
Right. Off with her head! Here has has the lips and a little cheek blush. Then I really went to work….
Now she has more definition to her lips. She has subtle blushing and shading on ears, cheeks, nose and in the eye area. She has a little make up too. She still needs eyebrows and lashes, but here’s a look with her eyes temporarily put back in.
That’s as far as I got. Ran out of time and had to pause to make some eyelashes for her anyway. All the store bought lashes I had were too thick and just looked silly on her! So I had a break while the lashes dried and hopefully I can finish her in my next session, this afternoon if I get time!
Hope you enjoyed watching Asa get a face! She has a new name now too ^_^ Sasha!
Thanks as always for reading :o)
