I set about painting another Monster High doll and I just love Cleo De Nile’s tanned skintone.
I began with a Cleo De Nile Dead Tired doll, purchased new to customize…
Of course out she comes! Here’s a close up.
Off with her paint!
I found the factory lip treatment to be quite interesting. How the lip paint goes quite a bit below the sculpt of the bottom lip and the sides don’t go all the way to the edge of the mouth. Still, it does look good with the rest of her paint, but since that’s gone, sayonara lip paint, lol!
Ack, she’s faceless!
I removed that last little bit of the residual lip colour and began anew 🙂
I started with some contouring and shading around the eyes, lips and nose, cheeks and chin… Then on to some eyecolour. I have chosen to give her green eyes. The colour is achieved by mixing and blending a number of hues.
Still lots more work to do on her eyes, but they’re coming along. Still lips and brows to do as well!
K, here she is just after having the gloss applied to her eyes. She has of course had full body blushing and shading and she’s all sealed with MSC.
I made her a little something to wear that looks great with her lip colour 🙂 She’s also got gloss sealed finger and toenail polish!
After that, it was time to take her up to the studio for some better lit shots 🙂
She’ll be up on ebay a little later and I will update with a link when her auction is up. In the meantime, here is one of the studio shots 🙂
Thanks so much for reading 🙂
