Lewis. Our eldest son. In rest and recovery after a ACL reconstruction. Slow and steady wins the race. Working on less detail but still enough detail with bigger mark making. Very pleased with the outcome. #figurepainting#pastel#pastelart#seascape
Italeri 1/72 German Fallschirmjäger. I got a country of 1/72 soldiers that I've been collecting since I was an adolescent (among bootlegs and originals), I never wanted to paint them, but these three dudes were my first ones, and I must tell: it was a hard work to my eyes and to hold the hand steady!...More coming up next #172scale#scalemodelling#wargaming#figurepainting#figurine#miniatures#miniaturas
Our bodies are the only way we have of making sense of the world and everything in it: we experience, understand, and affect everything that is outside of us only with our physical faculties. There is no other way. Wherever I am, I am always in my body.
We want eyeballs to look like...well, like balls, like they are round.
One way to assist in the illusion, is to gradate the values from dark to light to dark again. Generally speaking, when faces are light primarily from the front, or front-sides, the whites of the eyes will be the darkest in the corners and lightest in the middle, towards the direction of the light. The appearance of the iris, in the middle of all this, interrupts the gradations, but that should not deter us in gradating the white part of the eye. I will talk about how to color and value of the iris of the eye in a later “Tip”. Oh yeah!
I almost forgot the shadow. When the light comes from above, which is typically the case, the top lid casts a shadow onto the eyeball, so the area just below the eyelid should be a shade or two darker (see examples). Let me know if you found this helpful, or just confusing.
