Well. Well. Self-esteem isn’t something I have in copious amounts but I’m clearly not beneath having an egotistical moment as when I came across a problem today and thought to myself “who could I ask about this— oh, I should try FYBJDM, they know—- wait.” Wait.
Yes! I got a basic reference here, but the other one I remember that was REALLY good I couldn’t find so I made my own, it’s not as good as the one I remember is, but it’ll do. ヽ(￣д￣;)ノ
Eyebrows tend to be thicker closer towards the bridge of the nose and taper out starting at the arch that beings at around the corner of the eye. Of course shapes can vary and some arches aren’t quite as noticeable, but this is the basic anatomy of an eyebrow.
It’s something people tend to forget, that eyebrows have anatomy just like any other part of the human body!
Also for placement, eyebrows follow the gradual outward curve from your nose up to your brow line. Slap your dang hands on your own face and feel around to to see how this is done.
The idea being it, loosely speaking, goes in a gradual circle and forms your eye plug holes, which your eyebrows trace. To illustrate this I made this gif of a skull wiggling its eyebrows despite the fact they’d have no muscular tissue to actually accomplish this.
This can be difficult when giving a faceup to BJDs or any other doll for that matter because a lot of sculpts don’t have a definitive brow line, nor do they have a skull, so following the gradual curve of the nose can usually get you in the right place!
If you’re still having trouble, try looking at your own eyebrows or pictures of hot celebs b/c that’s kind of more enjoyable than your own face sometimes idk it depends on how healthy your self-esteem is for that day.
I hope this helps a little!
Happy Faceup Fridays!

I hate how fyeahbjdmods only ever posts faceups or really high quality pictures of dolls with a minor mod. They hardly ever post awesome mods or in-process pictures or process to finished pictures. Sure they don’t always look as good but it’s an important part of the modding process and what I wanted to follow the blog for.

HOW WAS I SUPPOSED TO KNOW THIS IS WHAT YOU WANTED IF YOU DIDN’T TELL ME. I am *always* open to taking requests of what people want to see, but when no one tells me anything different I’ll just keep posting what I have been.
I didn’t even know it was okay to submit WIPs of anything.
It is! It totally is, I just rarely get them! (I might actually have some I haven’t queued yet in the inbox, typically if you don’t see your post after like a month you should message me since the queue is set up for posts for every two weeks).
