Strifrieng 2



The "I" is not working very well on my keyboard, so this post was made with some frustration, lol.

Thanks for all the suggestions in my last post. I am going to leave it (probably) with just the string (I think). I got quite a bit done today. I started with correcting her eyes. They were way too small and the shadows of the sockets were just wrong. I still think that one eye needs a bit of enlarging on the top. Let's see... then I started on the hair which really pulled the colors together in my opinion. The dark side of her face is very warm and I love the way the yellows and shared oranges of the hair pulled the colors together. Then I went to the shirt, and part way through the black background.

It might seem like I work one piece at a time, which I do in a way, but I am always adjusting parts I have previously put it.

Anyway here it is until next Tuesday.

Looking great Nicole. This is truly going to be a lovely masterpiece.

It's gorgeous. The eyes look great to me. Beautiful work.

Beautiful, but the string looks like it is running from her nose instead of her fingers, maybe if her hand was further away from her nose it would look that way. Anyway I love your work!

Amazing challenge you've set up for yourself, and I haven't a doubt that you'll make this one great. I've been working on my figures, too. I grew up doing figures (Batman and Robin) but I seem to have lost much of my powers there.

You are a master in this area, Nicole.

BTW, I wish very much that the "I" on my own keyboard would quit working, too ;)
