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.

GIVE ME! You totally need to make a Nila doll, I'm your biggest fan!

^____^ 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.
