Yeah, now all it needs is a lil dusting of talc around the nostrils and you'll be done :lol
I keed, I keed... :angel
Looks *much* better Steve - I have no experience with painting 1:1 faces, but I think if you could soften the hairline *slightly* it would improve the overall look greatly.
Maybe just a couple of subtle brush-strokes of a lighter shade of brown, here 'n' there along the hairline?
Just wanted to chime in and let you know you captured Carrie's likeness very, very well. Great job. The bone structure is dead on.
My fiance who went to cosmotology school has a few suggestions for you:
(According to the above reference picture in the previous post)
* The lip color for Leia was more of a softened red rust color that has been blotted away and has been topped with a light gloss coat.
* Instead of the bright pink eyeshadow, try a light muted brown color, (applied lightly)
* The blush is more of a peach/apricot/brown shade (nuetral).
She thinks Lucas' overrall makeup scheme was mostly muted natural tones that showed off her youth and gave her that "fresh face" look.
But just wanted to let you know how much you did a great job on her. Keep up the good work. Just some food for thought.
Just like I said in the last thread thread you posted asking for opinions on this, I don't like it. I don't feel it's the paintjob entirely, though, I think the bust itself has a lot to do with it. :unsure

I tend to agree with Funky Judi on the likeness. In peoples experience I`m interested if this type of bust would cost a couple hundred dollars or if this is a 2500$ sculpt. Im trying to get a grip on what qualitys available for what budget at the various ends of the spectrum.
