Completed Critique Afghan Girl - Finished

    Hi All,

    She's done! The girl with the difficult-to-paint eyes! Hope you like her.

    In the end I decided to go for a gloss coat over the eyes, instead of a catchlight. I just couldn't get the catchlight to look right.

    I'm afraid this'll be my last paintjob for a while, as I'll be moving to another continent over the next weeks and I expect that'll absorb quite a bit of time. And my paints will be on a ship for 6 weeks, darn... :cry:.

    Cheers,
    Adrian

    Here's the original picture, and another one, picturing the same woman a few decades later (the girl was 13 when the famous picture was taken):

    Great Work Adrian! And I brlieve it's not an easy job... unsual skin tones. It's much more difficult try to achieve real tones, than ones we do on our own on the figures, and I think you achieved it very well :)

    Regards
    Pedro
