Shaetann WIP 3 To Hell and Back
Another wip on Shaetann. I’ve started painting the horns, which doesn’t show in the photo. After digging out my old lamps and dull coating him I managed to get a decent photo.
He’s quite close to being finished now, just a couple of small things left:
Increase the shadow a bit more and the highlights
Decide on what to do with his eyes
Final glaces on the horns
The last week I’ve been reading through the painting books I have to try to get some more help with improving my painting. So I intend to use that with my next project. Especially the parts about planning the project before you start painting (I’m terrible at that).
So it’s definitely time to get started with my entry to the Die Vincis painting competition. After a lot of thinking I’ve decided to go with the Gatekeeper bust. It should be a real challenge and incorporate one thing I’m dreading, OSL. I’ve never managed to get a good result but as an old Swedish saying: “Shame the one who gives up”. Not the perfect translation but it works.
