    very nice rendering for leather, if you allow me? added more shadow in the hollows of the hair a few very dark ones will give you more volume in her hairstyle

    I know why you only do busts and not full figures Nap - because the pants haven’t been built yet that’ll take the job on. 967960F0-BD4E-4332-8F9A-36B2F7A29DDB.gif 2D595E19-AB7C-453B-B1EB-A617BE1F4A0E.jpeg

    Hi Nap

    a nice start to this one. I do like the bust, but wonder whether it is just the angle of the photos or are the hands a little on the small side?
