    Hey Guys!

    Here is the Viking head more or less finished.
    I kind of feel the hair lacks the zap or 'glow' that I want,
    so I might go back and add some more highlights, what you guys think?

    Anders-

    Really nicely done. I think the blonde hair looks good. There is quite a contrast between the hair and beard. Was that intentional? Will you go back and add highs to the beard?

    I think it looks great as is... :)

    Thanks Guys!

    Keith,

    Yes, I did do that intentionally, however I will repaint the beard as it dont look too hot. It looks better in person as the pics kind of wash the effect out, but it still needs someting done to it to add a little zap to it.

    I saw this in the round last night. It is excellent. Anders has developed a real knack for painting expressive eyes.

    I read an intriguing suggestion somewhere...

    Add a very tiny amount of irridescent white to your final hair highlight mix. Helps the hair to "pop out". I have not tried this yet but plan to as most of my ( :lol: ) hair is dull...

    Thanks guys!!

    Thanks for all the nice comments, I am very flattered.

    I have now repainted the beard to about the same as the blonde, and it does look a lot better. Will show more pics soon!
