Ok, editing the caption. I am practicing repainting anything I can find. This is what I assume is a Bratz doll that I found at Goodwill. Any constructive criticism would be GREATLY appreciated. I’m hoping to work my way up to doing faceups on MH and ball jointed dolls someday. 

Also, I messed up with the sealant a bit next to her mouth, I know what I did wrong so please ignore that!

Yep, Bratz, and it’s lovely! I like the way you’ve done the eyes, they look like clear gems.

Can I make a suggestion?  Not about the painting on this doll, because that’s perfectly lovely.  What I want to suggest is not to feel you have to “work your way up” to Monster High dolls.  They’re inexpensive dolls, and they do sometimes show up in thrift stores.  Mostly, though, remember that no face up is permanent.  Even if you get a full price MH (I don’t know where you are, but there are a bunch of $10 big-box Scaris dolls in my local Big Lots and Tuesday Morning stores), you can paint the face, take photos, wait for feedback (or not), wipe the paint off, paint it again, and keep repeating.  This also has the benefit of letting you know of you’re using any aggressively stain-y paint…

(And it honestly took me years to realize that I could wipe the paint off of faces I’d repainted but didn’t like.  Yes, it stung a bit to erase all of that work, but, what’s the good of keeping something you don’t like—even if you did make it yourself?)

I have on question and one question only; hot dang this is gorgeous; are you going to sell her? * __ *

Hopefully I’m responding to this properly, I’m a little bit uh… Bad at tumblr. I am hoping to sell customs and do face up commissions in the future, but this one is kind of scuffed up and damaged since I got it used, I’d feel pretty bad selling her >:

Rrrrrgh I want to respond to people on the post about my recent repaint but I’m not sure how that works on tumblr. Like, if I reblog it with both of the people see it or just one, or…?

I’m streaming for a thing! If anyone wants to watch, here is the link!

Ok so I’ve been quiet about this for some time now, and I thought I should break that silence and make this public. (Hey other people are posting art PSA’s, this ain’t new)
We are Artists, We are many
Being a artist on Tumblr alone isnt easy. There are millions of other people  doing the exact same thing you’re doing. Amongst all of them you can be overlooked so easily. Now I am familiar with all those PSAs about not worrying about being popular and loving your own art. Thats all well and good, no ones debating that. But we artist want to share our art with the world. We want to show everyone what we can do.
The Wall
When we receive praise and love for our work, thats the best feeling in the world for us. We all have friends, fellow artists or not, that support us. But here on Tumblr, your art might not get pushed out into the crowd. For myself as an example, I get a 1 reblog for every 10 likes on something. And this is only including when I originally post it. When art post is liked, no one else sees it. Likes stay hidden and don’t appear on others dashes. (And yes, some blog themes do show likes, this I am aware)
Likes are good, but Reblogs do a lot more
When someone reblogs your art, a whole new set of people get to see it. Most of them are people who have never seen your stuff before. For example, whenever Carbines Official WIldstar Tumblr reblogs my Wildstar art, I get bombarded with likes, reblogs even follows! But before that, when I post it in the first place, not much happens. Dont get me wrong, I’m grateful I get anything, but feedback and notoriety is what keeps an artist like me going, and many others as well. Now I may understand that sometimes something someone draws isn’t your cup of tea, that’s alright! But even if you show a little interest, a reblog does a world of difference.
Support your friends, Support those who care
I know this is all sounding a little preachy, but it’s something I needed to get off my chest. There are no complaints, there are no orders, just a call out from all us artists. From the big and professional, to the small and unseen. We all want to share our art with the world, and it can all begin with a reblog.
( I dont think I need to say that everyone should reblog this, it goes without saying no?)

reblogging for  awareness

I totally should reblog more.
