While Alice stares at me 99% completed I thought I would start on this big fella. He is a 200mm bust with a lot of opportunity for trying new things. Here is what I am doing with him. His face is so amazingly sculpted I wanted to go for a portrait style of realism on it. I typically go for higher contrast so this will be difficult for me. The other thing is trying to simulate a kind of embroidery pattern on his jacket. I saw a neat little tutorial over on planetfigure.com that made me want to try it, I plan on doing the hat with the same pattern. There is still lots do to on his coat and the rest of the bust. Here is the progression so far in a kind of SBS, let me know what you think.
