So I’ve finished Major Victoria Haley to the best of my ability. And as always, the Cannon shows me exactly what I need to improve upon. I am really unhappy with having to detail out a face. Faces are the worst. I hate faces. I haven’t got the right wash/eye/highlight techniques figured out. I try to make sure the paints are thin enough, follow tutorials, etc. All I can think is that if I keep practicing, maybe something will click. I don’t know.
On my attempt at painting Haley, I tried to keep it simple. Gold, Brown and Blue were the main colors used. I ended up washing out the work I did on her face when I tried to highlight. Oh well. Next time. Other than that, I think the model was fairly decent. I think the pros call this table-quality?
