I am happy to present my finished version of Lesza from Ignis Art. I had a very particular idea for this model, there were a specific theme and concept that I was hoping very much to convey.

I feel l had some good success with the Spira Mirabilis Troll I just previously painted. In terms of the painting process and how well it all came together this model wasn't as flowing as the Troll but I am still feeling pretty happy with it. I really love having time to learn closely from other artists in the community and I think it's pretty clear I've taken a lot of inspiration from them here but once again trying to put my own spin on things.

C&C is always welcome and thank you to the entire community for the continued inspiration and support.

    Very nice Absinth Fairy :p everything is nice and sweet but in my opinion it would be nicer if the hair had one more stronger highlight. Probably I wouldn’t think about it too much but after watching your interview with Vince Venturella I agree that you need to push your hair game futher - your busts will be a perfection then :) Good job, I’m counting days for your next beautiful paitjob since you’re probably already finishing something as stunning as this lady in green :D

      Thank you kindly for the feedback.  I did push the hair up further before knocking it back on this model, but I didn’t like it.  Maybe it’s my taste invoked I just always think it looks funny on the models I’m painting to put so many various flashes of white around.  I did however use a new technique on this model.  I use some matte varnish which really has a slight satin finish compared to most of the rest of the hair and I was picking out highlights on the hair using this.  Perhaps next time I will be a bit more bold and use a satin varnish.  I felt it was quite an effective way to give the hair white flashes without having to paint it white.  I’m going to continue to experiment with this on future projects because matte - satin - gloss finish should be another tool in our inventory :D
