    Hey Guys,
    I finally got around to paint the face.The sculpter put a lot charector and detail on the face.
    When dry I will accentuate and deepen the shadows.

    I welcome your critique and advice, we all learn from each other.

    Head without face protectors. I left the face protectors out temporarily so that you can get a decent view of the face.

    Hey Keith, thanks for that.

    Teeth.
    first I painted the inside of the mouth wit a mixture of Burnt Umber + Magents.
    while the inside of mouth is still wet , I mixed more Naples yellow in my flesh highlight mix, and very carefully painted the individual teeth,
    I hightlighted the teeth where ever needed with Titanium white with a very tiny amount of Cadmium red mixed into it.

    Hope this helps.

    Kenneth, thanks a bunch for the encouragement and for the kind words,
    your opinion is always much appreciated and very important to me.

    The sculpter did all the hard work for me , all I had to do was paint it.

    Cheers.
