I wanted this sculpt to have a very light, natural look-- this character is a "soap and water" kind of girl. Anyway, I didn't do lashes or eyebrows because I don't have the right supplies yet, but I was focusing on doing the lips.
My first faceup was yesterday, and after it was done I started laughing because I thought, "Gee, my soap and water girl sure likes Cherry Kool-Aid!" She had that crazy stained mouth look that small kids get. She also looked like a makeup counter disaster with WAAAAAY too much blush! So, I wiped it and tried again. I'll need to try to take clearer photos because the lighting is just not showing what *I* see when I look at her. She has a little bit (just a little!) more color than is shown in the pics. For example, very light blushing over her face. And I tried sketching in her eyebrows using an oil-free pastel pencil, but apparently, it just brushes away, lol! I can tell that eyebrows and lashes are going to be a real bear for me, though...
Ok, enough chatter, tell me what you think please:
VERRRRY faint, but I added little white (well, light peachy-white) lip lines! Weee!
Very over-lighted photo, but you can best see the faint eyebrows I did:
Oddly enough, I like how the left side came out better. I am right-handed and ended up doing the left side upside down. Maybe I should do them BOTH upside down...) First I shaded a flesh-tone pastel where I wanted the brows to go as my guide, and then I lightly sketched the eyebrows in with a pastel pencil in brown.
I have SOOO much respect for all you faceup artists out there-- this is very hard work! But fun!~Tinooseus!
