Ryx's faceup

Just a little update on my Soom York since he now has a faceup!
This guy's character has developed a lot in a couple of years and gone through some changes, both in appearance and personality. I previously had Ryx as Soom Photon, back then he looked like this! Looking at old faceups you've painted feels just horrible XDD

All the credit for this new gorgeous faceup goes to Sarg ♥ She's such a faceup wizard hahah XD





I also have two test photos with the eyes and wig:


I really love this eye style on Ryx, it fits his character perfectly! I just wish the iris was slightly smaller :/ These are 14mm, but 12mm eyes would gap too much from the corners... This sculpt seems to have one of those challenging eye shapes - small, yet wide =_= He'd need 14mm eyes with the iris size of 12mm eyes X'D Buuut, maybe I'll get used to this look, it doesn't look too bad!

As for the wig, it's perfect! ♥ Overall I'm really loving this boy now and feel like York works as his character much better than Photon did. I also feel like there's now more resemblance to his sister Melanthe, who is NS Soom Cuprit.


Next step would be designing Ryx's tattoos and painting them, the latter will fall on Sarg's shoulders again XD I like designing tattoos on paper, but my shaky hands and precise brush work on a doll are not a good combination... Really glad that I have Sarg to help me out with things! But yeah, Ryx is going to have something on his upper torso and arms. I have some ideas, but haven't completely made up my mind about them yet :) Sarg needs to work on some other faceups anyway, so I have time to think about the designs and sketch.

I've been working on a pair of leather pants for Ryx as well, hopefully I manage to finish them later this week :3 I'd love to make him a leather jacket as well, to go with those pants, but not sure if my sewing skills are good enough to be able to pull it off... Guess we'll see about that later X'D For starters, maybe I'll just make a simple tank top! (even found a nice fabric for it recently)

      For now I'm just trying to get used to the way these eyes look on Ryx, it's not too bad! I actually just finished the pants and top yesterday, pretty happy with how they turned out :D

  2. He looks awesome! True the bigger iris gives him a sweeter look that intended, but it doesn't look bad. And that wig is super cool, I'm really liking his style ^-^

    1. Thank you :3 Yeah I agree about the eyes, it's not bad, but I'm not sure if the look is a bit too "puppy eyes" for his character XD I'm really loving that Frappzilla wig, it's so easy to style and just perfect! ♥

  4. New Ryx is handsome!! And Sargg did an amazing job, those scars look terrific!

    Hope you can find some small irises eyes for him, although he looks awesome with these ones!

    I can't wait to see the tattoos! And a leather jacket looks challenging, but I'm sure you will make it look amazing :D

    1. Thank you very much! ^^
      I think I'm just gonna go with these eyes, it doesn't really bother me that much now that I've had some time to get used to it XD

      Hope to get the tattoo project started soon, though it might take a while before finished ^^; We'll see about the leather jacket... It might be fun to try to make one, if I can't buy the perfect one anywhere :D
