More erasing but this time I got some fiber castell hard erasers in the mail and used the heck out of those and an eraser I picked up at the local hobby shop that has sand in it

    It's coming along great. Your values are just a bit off. To help with values, set your camera to black and white or use a greyscale value finder.

    Yeah that would Def help. I cut out my black and white ref for the stencil and had only printed a color copy cuz I was gonna try my hand at color. Changed my mind since I need skill first lol. So I've just been casually glancing at the color version while painting in only black.. didn't give myself too much time to complete this project on time so just going for closish on how it turns out. I like how it's looking, but Def don't have the right values or anywhere near photo realism...but I think she will like it..I might add a tiny amount of color if I have any extra time. Got today and tomorrow to finish so should get it done. Thx for the advise.

    I would say your approaching photo-realism, I mean you exaggerated a little but I actually really like that

    20180211_003937.jpg well this made my evening. Pulled back a bit (maybe alot) on the old trigger while basically point blank range working on the nose of this little lady... so bad I had to wipe the whole damn lower part back away and try to work the area around it so it wasn't to noticeably "erased".grrrr.
    @basepaint you wanted me to post my bad along with my good attempts..here is a big ol mistake..guess I better make her pretty again...*fingers crossed*

    20180211_015757.jpg after two attempts it's back to acceptable. Not as good as I want it, but I'm not taking a chance on screwing more up refixing it again. Still looks good enough to me..

    20180211_031912.jpg added a little color to make it pop. I know it's not like the reference but by golly I'm finally looking at it and feeling really good about it. I'm digging the real/cartoon look it's taken. Just gotta work on the divider that separates the two and add in the text...getting closer
