Road to Scale Model Challenge..
So we are down to the last week before my next competition here.. Scale Model Challenge which is located in Eindhoven, Netherlands.
Above is a quite shot of the layout for the models that I plan to bring. Though I decided late last night that the red brick one will not be going in the end. It requires more effort than I have time for this week and am not going to take something half-cooked here to the show.
Though I am making checklists for the other pieces, taking the advice I have received in many places for it, and what I should be focusing on to improve them. Mostly quick fixes for many, but enough that will take a good evenings worth of work to get them figured out.
Last night I started on the Alien bust. Working to remove some of the "airbrush" look to the head. Cleaning up the separations between the claw/head, and mask/face. Adding further irritation marks near the mask sections. And toning down the blue aspects on it as well.
After a couple hours of work, it was really coming together further, and making a bigger impact on the eyes even though I didn't touch them. Which was nice to see that working for me.
I will continue on the leather sections tonight on the Alien, but then move on wards to the Ronin next. Fixing some of the texture sections there as they should be relatively easy fixes there to move forward. Though the thought of freehand, although would really make a nice impact on it, is not on the table for this week.. but perhaps something to think about on the next piece.
Let's see.. but expect quite a few of these mini-update posts this week as progress is made..
