Adventures in faceplate carving.


I decided to try and give my Blythe a new face, it might not be easy to see from the pictures (doesn’t help that I didn’t take “real” before photos) but these are the things I’ve done:

– opened her eye holes a bit, especially at the top (to allow her eyelids to close without scraping her eyelids, which I plan to paint.)

– I sloped the bridge of her nose a bit more, as well as narrowed it just a bit. I also carved her deeper nostrils.

– carved her philtrum, making it more noticeable.

– I sanded down her bottom lip quite a bit, to remove some lines that had been carved by her previous owner. I also carved under the bottom lip. She had a lot of tool marks there, from her last carve job, that needed to be sanded away.

– I sanded her chin to give her a more defined cleft.

– I deepened her one dimple. I don’t plan on giving her a second one. What I did do was upturned her lip (more) on the dimple side, to make look like she’s giving you a half grin.

I’m really happy with how she’s turned out. I need finer sandpaper!PicsArt_1443420594894PicsArt_1443420195560

And I whipped up some hats… (my froggy stuff)
