Obitsu #2 Head. Take One.

Well, here she is, my first attempt at painting (and rooting) the more realistic Obitsu #2 head:


I named her Lenore. She has an Obitsu SB Slender body and her hair is a blend of RestoreDoll Stacy Titian and HiHo Silver Saran.


Since I paint mostly anime-style heads working with a realistic mold like this doesn't come naturally to me. It's a shame because I love the work that other artists have done with this head! ^o^ I rooted her hair in a day (using my usual needle-knot method, no less) and even though the head was soft my left hand hurts like hell!


She's wearing a Volks WTG outfit. I'm planning on sewing her something but I can't decide whether to make a dress or a casual outfit.


I haven't felt up to playing VP lately. I'm at that sky castle in Chapter 8 and I keep falling off. I did manage to gather all the stones for Seraphic Gate, though! I'm strangely enough using an all female party of Lenneth, Eimi (Aelia), Lyseria and Meltina (Mystina). They kick ass.

^____^ Thank you, it's sweet of you to say so! I've never tried making a doll of a real person, I wonder how it would turn out? ^o^;...

Well I have a pretty round face, rounder than I think volks or azone makes so you would have to add clay to the sides to get a realistic effect and that would just be scary. LOL! I am so cruel to myself sometimes.

I don't really think that would be necessary. O_o;...

Volks heads are all pretty angular, but the Obitsu 01 and 02 heads both have a kind of feminine roundness to the cheeks. Maybe that's why I'm finding myself attracted to them? I'm getting tired of looking at all these sharp angles, I guess.
