Hello, nice to meet you by AndrejA Hello, nice to meet you by AndrejA

Before asking anything, please check my F.A.Q. !!!! ^___^

This is my new girl, she is a Monster High Draculaura which I finished customising just yesterday. This is how she looked originally >>> [link]
It was my first go at repainting a MH doll, I have learned a lot and am looking forward to start working on the other 2 I bought. Regular commissions have got priority though so it will be some time before I finish them.

Sculpt: Monster High Draculaura
Customizer: me, Nicolle's Dreams ([link])

Are you interested in seeing how I paint faceups? I have started a new project called Faceup Stories on Youtube. More info >>>
Faceup Stories[UPDATE 19June]
The Faceup Stories project is on hiatus until I have something new to show. I feel like I have covered most of the techniques I use.

So beautiful! Do you have a tutorial on eyes? I. Getting tripped up on eyebrows/lashes & irises.
Also, what kind of paint are you using to redo the body? And what brands? Thanks for any info....

OMG!!! I love you and your stuff! I follow you on Youtube, you're my inspiration to do this kind of thing! I just did a draculaura repaint today! Not quite as nice as yours, but you had more practice with BJDs and stuff I'm sure :P Huge fan! You're my fav youtuber! :D

omg!! is perfect *-*
Lolli-Star Featured By Owner Dec 22, 2012  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Wow, that's stunning. I've been thinking of repainting one of those to make their face a little more bjd-like.
If you don't mind me asking, did you use the same materials as you did for any other faceup? Also, did you spray a base layer of sealant before you started?
Thanks in advance!
AndrejA Featured By Owner Dec 23, 2012  Hobbyist General Artist
The answer is yes for all of your questions :)
milobeecute Featured By Owner Nov 21, 2012
She's beautiful! Do you sell these dolls?
AndrejA Featured By Owner Dec 23, 2012  Hobbyist General Artist

She's adorable. Love it! I'm planning to do a repaint of a MH doll too, but I've been putting it off a little bit because I'm so afraid to paint or draw in her eyes. The outfit you have on this doll is cute too. Did you find it by looking in a specific size range? I feel like I might have a hard time finding clothes for mine because I'm not so sure if things will fit. (I once accidentally bought a super dollfie dress and bonnet for a BJD I had that was a little taller than a Barbie. I couldn't believe I made that mistake!)
ilvmakindolls Featured By Owner Jun 18, 2012  Hobbyist General Artist
Wow! I have a vinyl doll that I want to redo the face on. May I ask, did you use the same paints, pastels and pencils on this doll that you use on your resin faceups???? Thanks!
AndrejA Featured By Owner Jun 21, 2012  Hobbyist General Artist
Yes the process and materials are exactly the same as faceups done on resin.
ilvmakindolls Featured By Owner Jun 24, 2012  Hobbyist General Artist
Thanks for the information! I finally got a Monster High Doll and am planning on working on her later today. I hope I can do
AndrejA Featured By Owner Jun 25, 2012  Hobbyist General Artist
Good luck :)
FireIvy Featured By Owner May 22, 2012  Hobbyist Artist
How do youu repaint MH and Barbies?
AndrejA Featured By Owner May 22, 2012  Hobbyist General Artist
The same way as BJD resin dolls, the process does not change.
GothicWaters Featured By Owner May 4, 2012  Student Digital Artist
Those eyes are amazing <3

OMG I want one now... I have to stop checking your gallery, because my money won't survive! She's really amazing and delicate, she seems sweet. I can't imagine the time it took to change her hait (you rerooted them?)
TwilightWatanabe Featured By Owner Feb 23, 2012  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
the monster high dolls are pretty cheap compared to bjd's they're like 15 dollars and what not
Nadia-photography Featured By Owner Feb 24, 2012  Hobbyist Photographer
yeah, but in switzerland they're 30 ^^'' That's not really expensive either, but if I wanted a customized like this one, it would cost more I think =)
Loivissaxxx Featured By Owner Nov 4, 2012  Hobbyist Artisan Crafter
Customs seem to go for an average of $50-$130 depending on quality and complexity of the customisation. Some people who are just starting out offer them cheaper but often don't have many examples of prior work. Also the dolls do cost a bit to ship over seas as most repainters and customisers seem to be n the USA or England. But they are far cheaper than a bjd not that you can really compare the two they're very different.
TwilightWatanabe Featured By Owner Feb 25, 2012  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
true true, I want a customized one myself but I think I may just try and figure it out on my own or something. I'm too broke
Nadia-photography Featured By Owner Feb 26, 2012  Hobbyist Photographer
Haha, yeah me too! I'd like to try by myself ^^
Enocia Featured By Owner Feb 20, 2012  Hobbyist General Artist
You did an amazing job, as usual~ Gods I wanna know how you did it. D: I've been wanting to play around with these dollies. I have a draculara of my own that I want to mess with.
Danielle-chan Featured By Owner Feb 18, 2012  Hobbyist Digital Artist
