    Here's the pre-shots, before the first post.

    This time I started from drawing eye by pencil to make sure what I know and what I don't about eye.

    Primed with Vallejo primer, and airbrushed Dark blue and orange for shadows and highlight as a base.

    Start from drawing eye..

    And then move onto face.

    Unbearably sumptuous. The colors are so rich and yet Down to earth. It's like a very good cheesecake.

    Thank you very much for your compliments, Mike S, Carl, Marc, Ronald, Giovanni, Tommi, Jay, Mike M, Meizi, Mark, Eduardo, william, Rob, and Ngai! and...Thanks for your compliments on my pencil work, Carl, Tommi! :)

    As Eduardo and Rob said, yes I thought I need to try another approach which is different from what other great painters did on this bust. They are too great. and I think "Box art sample is too great. Always!", too! :)

    I didn't have much time today so...here's today's small progress.
