Scarlett by BikerScout Scarlett by BikerScout
I started this piece well over a year ago and created a semi-tutorial/tips & tricks piece to accompany it - I thought it was about time I finished it off!

I'm fairly pleased. The face has worked well and I'm satisfied with the lighting and level of detail.

The hair however, I found really tough. I've left it unfinished in places as I just couldn't get it right (harking back to my old 'unfinished-can-be-finished' mantra!)...

I'm going to be a little more careful in my choice of ref pictures in future, especially when there's a lot of hair involved! :giggle:

Great! Love it :) Especially Scarlett, she's just GGG (= Gorgeous Glamorous Goddess). And speaking of her hair, well.. although I didn't paint her, just like you did, but I made a typography portrait and her hair was just - urghhh, exhausting to make - 543 layers :) It's different kind of art, but I really believe, how can it be difficult. PS - if you like Scarlett and wanna see my portrait of her, I'd like to show you :) [link] And once again, you did rly good job :)
