Inspired by Jakob Villien’s posting of his version of Maia from our coaching session about oil and skin, I thought I would post my ‘student’ version. A result that I am very happy about. Criticism and comments are welcomed.
Once again, thanks Jakob.

    She turned out splendid! C&C? The area around the eyes is slightly coarse, and the hair could use more time picking up highlights to define the volumes. Still, these are minor critiques. You did a great paint job on her!

      Thanks alot Rhiana!
      I think you are very right about the area around the eyes needing more attention and it is something I definately will work on. And man, hair? It looks like something that should be easy, but I find it very hard to make it look ‘non-sculpted’.

    • Rhiana, "Cyradis"

      Yeah, hair is tough! I think to an extent on most sculpts we have to go “okay, this is sculpted hair”, but make it good within that limitation. Too finely sculpted of strands and it is insanely difficult to work a brush on. Too flat or too coarse of a sculpt and it looks like a blob or cartoony.
      I tend to like to think of painting the hair shapes before defining the strands themselves, if that helps. But while doing the volumes, keep brush strokes going in the direction of the strands. Nicer on a model like this since the hair shapes are pretty straight forward.
      You definitely have the skill - you worked a lot of nuance into the skin and other features already. Not easy, but you can do it :)
