Spectra was repainted by me
Dress made by 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.
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
