    Hi to all!

    This is a another masterpiece, as expected from Adriano Laruccia.......I hope I will make it justice as I splash the paint on.........

    The 1st photo shows my 1st attempt to paint the eyes over an undercoat of Dark Flesh (AC) after almost two months without touching a brush.........obviously it went in the water as I started afresh over an undercoat of Orange Brown 981 as depicted in photo No2!

    Photo No3 shows the face painted with the base coat which is:

    English Uniform 921 + Vermillion 909 + Sunny Skintone 845 + Medium Olive 850

    Photos 4, 5, & 6 show the 1st, 2nd, & 3rd highlights respectively, plus the first lowlight in No6. This was achieved by adding S.Skintone 845 subsequently into the base coat and the lowlights with E.Uniform 921 + Verm 909.

    Photo No7 shows the face after a diluted wash of Intense Orange 851, to introduce some life into the somewhat olive tint which is typical of the Arab skintone.

    This was followed by the 4th highlight, adding Flat Flesh 955 into the previous mix, and the 2nd lowlight, adding E.Uniform 921, also into the previous mix. Photo No8.

    Beard area was tackled next in photo No9, the 2nd lowlight mix with Black 950 added.

    Photo No10 shows the face in its final stage before the satin varnish was applied. Here the 5th highlight (more Flat Flesh 955 into the previous mix) was added. Deepest shadow is Black 950 + Vermillion 909.

    Photos 11, 12, 13 show the face in its complete form where some minor touches were added with the same highest highlights and deepest shadows.

    Now Gordy come to my rescue pls, as I can't fathom how to add the photos :angry: :( so I'm sending them to you now..........

    Any questions, fire on pls..........

    Sorry guys I posted this twice, can't see how to delete it, so if Gordy can come to my rescue pls............

    I'm paying for my hybernation I guess, as I'm sure I'm giving you all dudes something to laugh about when you see these kind of posts and can imagine me screaming madly helplessly at this box infront of me :angry: :lol:

    Keep on smiling as that's how I wish and want to see and hear everyone do ;)
