I have started the Nocturna Violinist. He is 54mm, so is quite a challenge, so far I have only done the face. Its not entirely complete as I need to fix a few things and add some more colour to his eyes. Anyway. I thought I would show a progression of my painting of his face, so here goes:
(Keep in mind that these pictures show the face at 4-5 times the actual size)
Picture 1, just some sketching of colours, no real blending.
Picture 2, started adding some colour and blending, but wasnt happy with it as some of the colours were out of wack.
And Picture 3, he is nearly done now, just eyes to be fixed and more colour added and fixing some of the highlighting. Also need to tone down a few colours, like the purple around the eyes.
