So today for you I have only the beginnings of highlights on the figure.
Taking photo's at this stage is quite useful as it helps me to see where things need to be tweaked before I go any farther. For instance, the shading on her face needs to be deepened, the highlights on her dress are too low and lack depth of colour. These I will glaze down with the base colour then reclaim the highlights and bring them up several notches. The highlights on her cape are sloppy and will be glazed down with the base colour and the highlights will then then being reclaimed and tightened up. Also the grey trim needs quite a bit of work as I have merely sketched in the roughest of highlights. And of course the staff, the gemstone and the dragon need to be completed.
In the following photo you can see where she was at last week and where she is now.
I plan to have her completed and ready for a final test shot before weeks end. At this time I have not made a decision on how to base her as she is to be part of a ten figure war band. This being the case whatever base I design is one I will have to repeat nine more times, so I need to make something I can tolerate doing repeatedly.
