L-R - Bronzed, Sallow, Peachy
I describe the Sallow and Peachy colours as essentially light tans with the same tonal value, but Peachy is more red, and Sallow is more yellow. I deliberately picked non-racial descriptive terms for the colours because I wanted to avoid calling any of my colours anything”skin”.
Referring to any one colour as the standard for an ethnic group, particularly a “group” as large and diverse as “Asian”, makes me extremely uncomfortable.
AH - I checked my track & trace number, and they’d tried to deliver it this morning!
So all my wee dolls are in town!
I’ve had a few people ask if it’s possible to open Chris’s eyes.
I made an attempt to do so, but the smallest available glass eyes (2mm) were just ever so slightly too big to look OK - and opening the eyewell large enough would mean loss of detail.
So I went back to my file, and used a 2.2mm sphere as a boolean to open the eye after adjusting his eye socket, cheekbones and forehead. The result is ever so slightly cartoonier than the original head. I also closed his eyes.
I’ll know if it works in just under three weeks, if the post behaves.
both the giveaway winners have got in contact (whew!)
THE DOLLS HAVE ARRIVED IN THE COUNTRY!
I said that I would wait a week and then re-draw if I didn’t get confirmation from the give-away winners (kimmsauce, and starponywars. I haven’t heard from either body yet.
Just letting you all know that I have messaged both people again, and if I do not hear from them by Tuesday I will re-draw two new numbers.
Sorry it took so long to answer this, but I needed to fix some issues with my SD prototype before I could take these photos.
Chris is the right size to pass as a MSD for an SD, (being 1/12 while SD’s are 1/3).
Jensen’s slightly miffed that the wee guy has been getting all the attention lately…
He flat out refused to stand on the carpet, but I put that down to him being strung quite loosely.
excuse the muck on the carpet and skirting board - we’re in the middle of getting our ceiling repaired and flakes of plaster have been dropping quicker than I can clean the buggers up.
Also - if he looks weirdly top-heavy in the last two photos it’s down to my amazing photographic ability of taking the worst photos ever. Those were the ones I took first and I was so worried about him faceplanting that I didn’t scoot back far enough.
