Spectra was repainted by me
Dress made by :iconfiremoon5:

:star: Repainting a doll is a hard work, and I don't usually keep most of the original character's features because I'm not painting a new version of those characters, I'm changing the doll's face and personality completely to make them unique and different. I mean, to me it would be a waste of time and effort to work hard in a repaint if I'm going to do exactly the same painting the doll already had, at least when it's about a personal repainting and not a commission. :) :star:

She was the first MH doll I had, and seeing the improvement in my last repaints I decided to paint her again to see the difference with the previous one. I remember how scared I was when I decided to remove her factory makeup and start with my first repaints, and I felt so disappointed with the result, but it definitelly worth it when I did this and I compared.

At first I was going to paint her cute, but Spectra's face is really apropiated for regal and angry expressions and my character Violet is totally like that, also I read some comments asking me for different expressions, so in the end I decided to paint her like an altive princess. I also tried to make her look kinda sweet at the same time, like someone who is always acting like a diva but has a sweet side in the deep, I don't know if you get what I mean.
I really love how the eyes and eyebrows came out, it was a real challenge!
Also she won't be for sale, but I'm thinking about repaint another spectra and sell her on etsy

feel free to critique to help me get better, but please be respectful with my work! I put a lot of time and effort on this :)

I love all your dolls eyes. :) They always look so pretty. And I like how you blended like a blue and purple eyeshadow. You did really great here with her whole face and everything. One thing that bugs me is the dark purple in the corners of her mouth. To me it seems like it would be better if it were lighter or something. Or maybe thats just me.

I know you paint the doll's faces, but do you also make/buy them new dresses or something? Just wondering lol :hug:
I saw some comments like that about the lips corner, I'll do a test with and without them so maybe I'll stop doing them, or I'll use lighter colors
yes, the custom dress was made by :iconfiremoon5: as you can see in the description
I only have this one custom for MH dolls, but I plan to get more from her
