Re: Himba Beauty WIP

Update.

Aw, Patrick...that's sweet but I'd look funny in a beard. Seriously, I love YOUR style/technique! Thank you! On the postings...I took almost a 2 year break in there, too...guess I'm just a slow poke. Aren't there a few on the site that have over 25,000???

Martin and Wendy...thank you!

Pamela... double thank you!

Rich and 03ahmed...thank you!

Diana...silly girl...I can't wait to see yours! lol

Almost done the face now...worked the last 2 days on it but forgot to take a photo until it was too dark yesterday. I'm still working on the lips and the shadow parts around the chin and up the side. I'm fairly pleased with the smoothness of the skin, just hope it turns out the same on the rest of her. I've decided that I'd rather do wrinkles...smooth can be boring.



Closer


Whole thing

Re: Himba Beauty WIP

I just can't believe how you manage to do this. Cathy once asked me, jokingly, if I wasn't managing to buy the dual layer Ampersand boards with the ink, then the grey and then the white It looks like you've got one because you cut through to the grey layer perfectly

Oh, and I do wrinkles because no way could I do smooth and keep it consistent. So if ever a young girl asks me for a commission - sorry, no can do
