Re: Pinup from 1900

Interesting. For some reason, I don't get a sense of 1900's or age, she seems to have a more contemporary hairstyle, and the fur could be from any age. I like the idea of her hair, very interesting curves and waves and the way the sun hits it, but I think it looks too stringy. Not sure how to to make it less so - maybe if some of the hair was more blended instead of all as individual strands. Also, some of the shadows appear harsh. Her neck shadow and breast shadows are smooth, but under her lip, nose and eyes they are missing soft edges.

I like this. Great the way the hair is lit. Also like the way you have painted that furry stole. Well done.

Re: Pinup from 1900

I like it just the way it is and don't change that hair. I love the individual curls.

Thank you and I won't! It was a done deal when I finished it and I liked it. That's when I know I'm done.
