So … much …. hair…

This past Friday, I went to Greeley Paint Group at the Nerd Store. Very, very low turn-out, but I got some quality time with Synjinn and Volkon’s hair. I am starting to discover that hair, for me at least, is an area that I really need to work on (at least at this scale). So far, I am not too happy with what I have, but I also have to realize that I have a lot of work to do still on it, and it is clearly in that UGLY phase that all miniatures go through. Progress so far:



I am most happy with the progress on the back, but at the same time, it is too “stripey” at the moment. I need even it out, and I need to work on the deep shadows still. Tonight I think I might take a shot of him and convert it to black and white to see the levels. I am very please with the face, and I am please with some of the highlights on the back, but the different shades of brown I think are just a bit too much. It is kind all over the place. I know how hair looks highlighted, and this isn’t it, but also this isn’t reality. It is a miniature. It is a balancing act, and I am still finding my balance.

    I agree that the hair appears very “stripey” but if you start really looking at hair in direct light it certainly can look that way. I think the skin is looking really good too. Glad you were able to have some quality time with Synjinn did you reveal all of Alfonso’s secrets to him?

      I kept most of the secrets as he asked. 😀 I am bringing Volkon to 3rd Saturday, so I hope to get some input from you and the others as to where I need to go, or perhaps, just be a bit more patient. Some of it looks good, and it just might be that I need to even it out. Patience might be all that I need, and time. There is a lot of paint to apply to him still.
