Here are two shots of my current project, Harton's 200 mm Mountain Man bust.
His face needs to be given a flat coat and his eyes a gloss one.
'There is no shading or highlighting except for the coon skin and face/hands..
Since taking these, at the suggestion of my figure building friends, I have added more highlight and shadow around the eyes, nails and knuckles, He also got a layer of shadow to his beard. There is now a tiny spot of white on each eye from the prevailing light soiurce.
Also, the arm/hand/rifle pouch assembly has not been permanently attached here and there is a great deal of fringe to be added.

That looks great! The skin tones and his clothes just kinda "jump out" at you. A wonderful job.....show us more!
