Facepaint update II
I'm building the skin tones and starting to lay in the hair. I think the right eye is pretty much where I want it to be. Its in deep shadow but still has a hint of catchlight there that I want to remain very subtle. This girl has freckles too and I want to indicate those as well under the makeup but not make them prominent.
The scarf of course needs more work to develop form. I don't know if I'm going for detail of the knitted fabric on it, likely not.
Each time I pass by this image I see something new. The piece is a little unnerving, perhaps that direct baleful look that has that effect. But having an effect on the viewer is all part of art I think.
