Big head wip - steps by meririm Big head wip - steps by meririm
Latest edits: Corrections on the neck, proper collar, had to add two more colors for a proper gradient of blues on the clothing (GAH), vague idea of the final form of the hair.

I'll die of old age before I finish that thing. I swear it undoes itself when I don't look at it.

That's a lot of braids. o_o Looks sweet, though! Kind of random, but I really like the stray locks of hair. Also, *beautiful* skin tone! *Envies*

Thanks a lot for your comment. :) And yes, that's a lot of braids @_@ I don't know what possessed me.
For the skin tone, I just fell in love with pictures of the Himba people, who use a mixture of ochre and fat to protect their skin from the sun, it gives it a reddish tinge that I thought was beautiful.

WOW, are you doing every little plait by hand? That's amazing detail!

(I wonder if her neck might be a tad far back?)

Yes I am. ;_; I tried copy pasting but it just doesn't work since the curves aren't similar betwen the braids.

(I'll see for the neck... It'll be mostly covered by the time I'm done, and it's too straight anyway...)
Thanks for the comment

I know what you meen on the copy paste, You try it, you know it doesnt work, you sigh, you remove it, then start the next little part all over again.

Very inspiring!

I think copy pasting isn't that interesting on large pieces, even "symmetrical" ones... Redrawing a part will often give it tiny differences that prevent the picture from being too repetitive, not to mention that most of the time you'd have to fix the shading anyway. :)
Long life to the old fashioned methods!

Le cou changera plus tard, quand j'en serai au col. Il est là pour "être là" encore.
Et merci pour l'oreille. :D
