Happy Monk

More progress on Happy Monk - and lots of time spent on cleaning up his skin.

I'm going to get rid of the white spots on his beads as I don't feel they're necessary.

There's still plenty of shading and highlighting to be done on both the skin and the cloth -- but I feel like it's really starting to come together. I also tried the crosshatch technique for the first time on his stockings and like the texture it created.

And here's a look at him from all sides - as well as the complete composition.


  1. I'd have to say, from seeing it last night at Great Escape Games, the photos don't do it justice.

  2. Thanks - and, yeah, I desperately need a better camera. All of those photos were taken under the same light, at the same settings... and only one background turned out white. Sigh.

  3. I like the red cloth most of all. I think the variations in the color look great along with the highlighting of the material.

  4. Many thanks - that deep orange/saffron robe colour scared me at first but it came together nicely.
