Mamachapp Moko-chan + Neo-go repaint

Achtung! Major girly-ness ahead.

Haven't updated in ages! I'm in such slump, work-wise and hobby-wise. ><
Well I got busy painting again this weekend after receiving my first shipment of Obitsu heads and bodies. I painted a Mamachapp Moko-chan doppelganger (custom #6) to put the Moko-chan outfit I got from Dollshow 20 to use. Her head's ginormous. (See comparison with Volks Neo Go after the jump.)

-dies from overdose of moe-

Those gigantic eyes too aaages to paint. Her "animal ears" are attached with elastic and wouldn't fit any of the smaller Volks/Obitsu heads I had. So I had to order a head similar in size to the original Mamachapp doll - the Obitsu #1 comes very close.

Obitsu bodies have tighter joints compared to Volks, which makes them easier to pose. Moko-chan uses a 23cm body and she's even capable of balancing on one leg. Neat!

I also wiped and repainted the blonde Volks Neo Go 3 head (custom #7), aiming for better results this time. He's retained his original sullen and pouty look. My sister mentioned she still prefers black-haired "Kanda". It's just that the Neo Go 3 headsculpt practically dictates the uber androgynous look. IMHO, Neo Go 2 heads make better-looking males, but I don't have a body for the one I'm painting next. Meh, I hope Volks will restock their Neo Go bodies soon.

No! I like how the blonde looks like now. He looks more attractive. I think you've gotten better the eyes look more alive! ^_^ Moko chan is so cute! Wish she could smile tho... hahaha... Her custume really fits her well. good job!

Costume, you mean? :P Thanks hon. The new brushes are working out quite well, it's now a question of refining painting technique. I think I'm lashes-challenged. :X

I'm not so fond of gigantic anime eyes, but I think you did a good job. And the blonde guy is so handsome!
Btw, thanks for adding my page in your links! :D

Thanks kizzychan. I'm not a fan of the huge-anime-eyes look either, but I'm susceptible to painting them on my smaller dolls, lol. Go figure. XD
