Pow-Wow Indian WIP 4

I have done a few more things to help me see better "road maps" of this man's anatomy, such as blocking in his hair and I continue to work on his jaw. The eyebrows will need some refining and then I think I will move on to his hat. Lots of detail there. I need that to be the correct darkness to be able to gauge how much darker the skin tones or his face paint needs to be.

You are making progress. I can't wait to see the hat. Happy New Year!

Thanks Vicki,

I actually have started on the black top hat, painting around those feathers is a real kick! Next, I get to try to get a beaded-like texture in that hat band...whatever was I thinking of when I decided I loved this photo and had to paint it?
