So one of my customer is studying medicine with her partner (how sweet is that btw???), so she wanted to make a pair of figurines that's wearing medical white coats!
It was definitely something new to me, and I find myself feeling excited to make them!
(YES! NOW ALL MY PRODUCT WILL BE ABLE TO BE SPINED AND YOU'LL BE ABLE TO SEE ALL ANGLES! HEHE)
Some reference photos!
I was given the school logo so I can image transfer it on to their coats. It took me quite a number of tries, but image transfer when done well will always be better than my bad painting skills :D
My camera skills isn't that good either so it's not coming out very clearly...but hopefully it's still pretty clear how it looks in general!
I was also asked to mosaicked out their names - which is understandable, but quite a shame, because I'm pretty excited about the name tags too! I find that it puts a nice touch in there.
The base for the figurines was also quite unique - a smooth one, to imitate the hospital floors! That was also the reason why I thought we should put something there because it looked so empty! Hence the name tags. Sometimes good ideas really come to you unexpectedly ey?
I also really like how they're holding hands. Of course, it's also easier for me because I don't have to do things separately (only making the hands when they're already on the base so that they look natural). But BECAUSE they're only holding hands, they are able to stand much closer together compared to hugging!
☹️ I'm actually quite upset about these two images because I focused on the wrong things... Quite disappointed at myself to be honest UGH.
One last photo to end this post!
H has been a wonderful customer, she gave me all the details I needed within the custom order form, and I didn't have to ask for more information! She was also really supportive, and enthusiastic. Love working with such people ♥
She even passed me a salmon onigiri when I met her to pass her the figurines, because we talked about how I wish I didn't HAVE to eat but just eat for fun hahahaha. It's definitely a gesture that I will remember in times to come!
