    usual suspects,
    A mix of sepia and burnt umber was used to lay down the hair, scratching with a XActo Blade and various pencil erasers, sepia with yellow was used for highlights, a ear bud sprayed with isopropyl alcohol was used for the out of focus areas 0558686C-FCB1-43AA-A0A2-958191E1C396.jpeg

    To me, that may be the best looking hair I’ve seen of yours. Which is saying something as it’s always great.

    That hair is phenomenal. Kinda reminds me of Reese Witherspoon for some reason. Really amazing job so far, can't wait to see the progress!

    Trying some new techniques for colour matching, looks like the usual mess :) D50187CA-8819-4ECE-9665-0087071B8E79.jpeg

    And a bit more human :)
    I intentionally sprayed to dark to use the blue shift of white, it was just experiment and I’m not sure how it will end, but worth a try, so many different things going on this ref! F1B64F57-32C5-4EDC-AFD5-5F4D9D989B0C.jpeg

    Just goes to show that you are human after all. Fighting skin tones, colors, textures, blotchyness like us mere mortals. Love watching you overcome each obstacle. Keep telling us your thought process as you go.

    That’s a bold experiment, bu it looks like it coming towards a good tone.

    Another masterpiece in the making, I'm sure you will overcome the issues of experimentation. And I have found that the worst that can happen is you wipe it off and start again, its just paint.
