What this has done though is leave me feeling a little underwhelmed with my painting. After the high of the metallics in the last instalment, it's been a bit of a slog with this Andrea piece. I think that 54mm for me isn't my natural habitat on the whole, and so I've been feeling a little like I'm not doing it justice. As a result, progress is painfully slow compared to my normal output and enthusiasm tends to then wax and wane.
That said, I have made quite a lot of progress...
The skin is done, the cloak has received a lot of extra attention and the freehand is in place - still need to get some light and shade in there - the bow and much of the quiver is done, as is the skirt.
I need to decide whether to add a small freehand to the tabard, then the hair, jewels and metal parts of the quiver need to be done. Oh, and I'm going to steal a long hair from the cat for the bow string! After that I plan to put the model down for a few days and come back to it with fresh eyes to see what I'm "missing".
Once this is done I have a couple of really quick, fun pieces to finish off before I decide what my next project piece will be. I've been discussing what I think is a great concept for a dual effort with a good friend too (over a few drinks a few days ago). If that gets off the ground I reckon it could be a really cool, and creepy piece... ^_^
Until next time.
