Monster High: OC Harley by Shadow-People Monster High: OC Harley by Shadow-People
*edit* This is my second doll mod. Not very good...
Meet Harley, daughter of the Harpies. By all means her arms should be her wings, but I don't know if I could do that.
She used to be a Gloom Beach Draculaura. I think I will re-do her wig one day. It is also unfinished. The top half id clay, but I still want loose hair beneath it. It's supposed to be feathers, but I guess they dont really look like feathers, huh?
Her outfit is made from spare fabric I had laying around. He wings are foam that has been shaped with a soldering iron. Be careful if you use one, I burned my finger with it and now there is a welt.
I am still trying to think up accessories for her and a pet. Probably a phoenix.

Her wings look like their coming out of her butt, but, overall she's not half bad.

They'd be much lower if that were the case. Her wings, however, extrude out of her lower back and curve outward, much like hers www.figurerealm.com/userimages…

I know I'm a bit late to the game, but I'm in the process of modding a Monster High doll into a Mass Effect OC, and have been looking up different ways of adding clay to the head (which kinds to use, how to affix it, etc.), and I have to say, this is really awesome. I didn't realize the wings were foam until you said, and her bangs look great! Very reminiscent of feathers, and the styling you chose is awesome. Also a stupendous paint job. How did you get that gradient on her legs and arms? It looks very natural and awesome :)

It was watercolor paint. But not the kind you have to wet first, the kind that comes in a tube. I just layered it on from light to dark. I got lucky that it worked because I didn't seal it between colors. I suggest letting it dry first and then putting a coat of sealant on before adding the next color.

What are you making? Asari? Turian? Either way. that's rad!

Asari :) She's inspired by the multiplayer vanguard asari, but I'm making her my own (there's a character sheet and a title card on my DA page). I'm both excited and nervous, because I have NO idea how to go about doing the cranial crest, and this is my first time doing a custom mod like this. (I also have no idea how to do the armor, but that's a worry for another day.)

Boil bake?? How is this magic done? (I'm so new to sculpey it isn't even funny /o\)

You sculpt what you want, like say the Asari hair, and drop it in boiling water. This allows you to keep the sculpey on the head so it wont loose shape while hardening. It will not be as solid as regular baking, but it's sturdy and safer than putting a doll head in an over. Which is also doable with a stand, but you risk melting.

And I can drop the entire doll head, even if it's already painted/varnished? I MUST RESEARCH THIS.

I would paint the head afterwards! Unless you're keeping the factory paint, then it should be okay for about 10 minutes, but you will have to handle the head gingerly until it dries.

nice custom doll, and putting my two cents in, a hawk would be the kind of pet I think a Harpie would have, but that's just my thought.

what kind of sealer do u use for her to keep the paint on and from chipping
Reply
:iconshadow-people:
Shadow-People Featured By Owner Nov 10, 2012  Hobbyist General Artist
No sealer will stop the paint from chipping completely that I know of. Sealer does help to slow the process. If its an area such as the wrist, elbow, or knee joints there is likely to be chipping from wear and tear. As well as the feet if shoes are put on and off a lot. I dont have a specific brand, I just use any matte sealant. But I hear mr. super clear is best.

I guess that offer is almost nice. But if you checked the date on this this picture is a year old and I have done way better work since then. Either way, to each his own.

I usually use an airbrush now, but you can get overall smoothness with a paintbrush as well.
