Here is little Jaedon Brian again with some more paint and some eyes temporarily popped into his head. Jaedon's mama is interested in hazel greenish eyes for him, so I'm trying these Lauscher ones on him while I paint. They are very interesting in the sense that in some light they appear more hazel green and in other lighting conditions they appear a deep, almost forest green with hazel specks. They are wonderfully piercing and look very pretty with his skin tones. We shall see what his mama thinks of them. I also have a deep dark newborn blue that I might try out, just for curiosity's sake. He's another serious looking baby, and to me his face beams with wisdom and intelligence. It's something in the intensity of his stare and that furrowed brow.
This boy is going to have a LOT of hair. Billowing spirals of cropped curls all around with smooth edges is what his mama requested. Oooh I can't wait to see him with his curls! Tonight will be another long one. I'm already buzzing with my evening jolt of inspiration and it's only 5:30. The early evening walk did me good. Gotta love that fresh air, no matter how humid it is here!
Happy Friday! This is the Owen Francis sculpt I posted WIP photos of a little while ago. This Owen is a custom painted kit for a fellow reborn artist and he (or she) is looking as cute as can be. I love that little balled up fist of his left hand. It really captures the detail and I love the way his little fingers are turning out. His newborn complexion is really coming to life. Today I will complete his painting, adding more color to the soles of his feet and palms of his hands. I will also paint his veins and finish other aspects of his circulatory system, lips, brows, hairline and of course the final finishing. This weekend I have to start his (or her) rooting. Owen will have a medium fine head of newborn baby soft straight black hair. My daughter was born with a head full of pin straight jet black hair and I want to capture the essence of that new, baby softness with a directionally rooted style that lays effortlessly with a smooth of the hand. Owen is an adorable kit with a serious little face that begs to be kissed in spite of its peevish demeanor. : )

Good evening! Here are some pictures from Jean's photo shoot today. He is super huggable and sweet! He is available for adoption now. I am asking $2500 or best offer for him. I am also willing to consider layaway options with a minimum $300 deposit.
Hello ladies! Late last night I was able to finish up the final touches on my latest toddler boy Jean Baptiste. Eyes have been glossed and hair has been finished! I am amazed at just how alive he looks in person. His eyes and hair combo are gorgeous. I'm glad I took a creative risk on this one!
This afternoon I was able to take several pictures for his photo shoot which I will post later. He is so handsome and is a wonderful toddler addition to any collection for sure. ; )

Greetings lovelies! This is a WIP post about a very special custom baby boy I have in the works. His name is Jaèdon Brian and he is a prince. Hehehe, no seriously, how cute is that little frown of his? Jaedon in the Hanna sculpt by Reva Schick, one of my all time favorite sculptors. He also has the prettiest little feet!
Last night, or rather this morning, I got minimal sleep. We went to a cousin's birthday party yesterday (soo much fun) and then when we got back I was busy fixing up my stepson's room for his arrival today well into the wee hours of the morning (so many toys, so many clothes). Anyway, my brain is totally pooped but, infant fashion beckons! You guys know how I love baby clothes and I been searching the web for the perfect ensemble for baby Jaèdon. I'm in love with this multi-colored striped sweater, knit hat and sock combo from Baby Gap. : )
