Oleysa 1/10 bust WIP

Discussion in 'vBench (Works in Progress)' started by Power Elephant, Mar 26, 2020.

  1. Here is what I've got so far. Comments apreciated, especialy on the freckles. So far the reception has been positive, but I can see how it might not appeal to some people.

    Nice! I kind of like the freckles. If it were me, I'd lighten them up a bit in the highlight areas with a glaze or two. Cheers for taking a risk.

    Nice fleshtones, & as Matt says above I'd blend the freckles in a little. The flowers on the plinth are a nice touch, & add a splash of colour.
    Great work, watching with interest!
  4. I would have most definently used a brighter shade in retrospect, but this is my first time doing it so I didn't really have a reference point. I did add a few glazes already to blend it in a little bit, but I'm afraid of destroying the contrast I've worked so long on. I'm not going to be doing anything else to the skin for now, I will take a second look once the rest is done.

    Hello, as people have already said they need tweaked, I would lose a few here and there, especially near eyes and on chin. The philtrum also needs to match rest of lip in colour.
    Female faces have less contrast usually.
    I am sure you will be working on this still as its a Wip, but this is my opinion. Thanks for posting. Michael

    Hi Peter

    This is a really lovely sculpt like your fleshtones what mix did you use ?

    As for freckles agree with the comments about lightening them a little but good on you for the splatter

    Look forward to seeing you do the hair and the flowers


    Thanks for sharing

    Happy benchtime

    Stay safe

  7. Here is an update. Much like the freckles the sheer fabric is something I'm doing for the first time. Took me a while but I think I finally got it right. None of these newly painted parts are finished mind you, I was a bit impatient and jumped around with my painting.
