    My only comment would be that I personally think that there is too much black around her eyes. I think she had more of a pink/purple eyeshadow. The cheeks had a bit more blush in them too I seem to remember.
    I also seem to remember that her bottom lip was more fuller for some reason? :)
    Apart from that I think she looks great.

    Cool Carrie bust. Where can I get one.

    Constructive Criticism Below

    The bust looks very good except for a few rough areas here and there that should have been smoothed out. The likeness to Carrie Fisher in the sculpt itself is pretty dead on, but the paintjob is kind of weak. The flesh tone is too pink and too pale. It makes her look kinda dead.
    The painted in hairline is bothersome. It makes the hair look really fake especially near the sideburn area. I like that you mixed in shades of brown for the hair.
    The eyebrows look painted and heavy handed. Try using an extremely fine paint brush or draw the individual hairs in with a colored pencil.

    Nice work Streetjudge79

    I'd like to be the first to give a *positive* comment about your ANH Leia bust :)

    AS you've said, her bottom eyelashes need a bit of a trim, but I think this is an excellent likeness (courtesy of CKing I believe?) and with a bit more 'blusher' on the cheeks she'd look 'spot on'

    Although I may be a lil' bit biased as I think Carrie Fisher circa 1977 was *very* cute :D
    If you put this on a full mannuequin, just make sure that the (ahem) * are duct-taped-down.... just like the original :love

    Cheers,
    John

    The flash washes out a lot of the color, the cheeks and skin tone are fine. Any more blush and she would look like bozo the clown.
    I re did the eyes since I showed these photos, so she doesn't look like she's got black eyes now. Not much I can do for the hairline, that is the way it was sculpted, it left no room to paint on hair ends. If I did that, they would look awful.
    Thanks for the constructive criticism, I want my client to be 100 percent happy so any changes I can do to better the bust, I welcome them.

    Granted they are only *temporary* but I think if the eyes were dark brown, it would add a lot to the Carrrie Fisher likeness.

    And I know what you mean about camera flash 'washing out' the colour details... maybe the bust has plenty blusher as it is.... and as I recall Leia's overall complexion was quite pale in ANH so that looks accurate :)

    Cheers,
    John

    Well, I don't like it at all. But in all fairness, I think a lot has to do with me just not liking the bust to begin with. And you can only work with what ya got. :unsure

    No offense to you (hopefully) but I think its generally just kind of creepy looking. She's got this look on her face that isn't quite "normal". I can't describe it.

    Steve, it´s doesn´t look that bad, it can be nicer though with a few changes

    First of all, you need to change the eye color, to dark brown. But also if I were you, I would go for a pair of real glass eyes that are alot more expensive but well worth the money.

    You need to do her skin a little bit more warmer and soft.

    Here are some pictures of the Leia Statue that I made for a museum in Paris last year and a picture where you see what kind of color you need to buy.
    They cost $120 a pair

    Steve,
    The skin tone KICKS *. (as a matter of fact, I like all of the paint work)

    but yeah, the eyeliner isn't subtle enough. TOO prominent.

    LOTP's, any chance of getting a closeup shot of your eyes?
    Well, not YOUR eyes, but your Leia's eye area?

    *ss*

    I don´t have any better shots of the eyes, but belive me, when you buy a pair of those expensive eyes, you get a total different result.

    Steve, get rid of the black line under her eyes altogether (in your second set of pics). It doesn't belong. Do this and guaranteed it will dramatically improve the over all look.

    Any female friends of yours that treat their own eyes on a regular basis? Perhaps you could consult...

    Also, though I know Fisher was made up rather heavily for filming, you may want to knock back the red a tad for more realism...

    You're definitely on to something here; just keep massaging it a bit...

    Here is a VERY quick and dirty view of what I'm thinking... I know the color I used doesn't quite match, but you get the idea.

    As I think about it, I think the thing that is off about the black line under her eyes is the spacing betweent the line and her eye. IF you do keep black down there, bring it right up to the eye...

    Thoughts?

    Thanks for the input guys, yeah, I think I'll just bring the black line up right to the eye.. I wish I had the right eyes to put in her , I know that would improve it a lot. This is the first female bust I have painted in about 7 years so the makeup is a bit tricky for me as I have no experience with womens makeup ( Just waiting for Borgdrone to make some comment on that, LOL..) I'll keep plugging away till I get it right. Thanks for the help fellas.

    okay,heres what i see... blend the light color into the upper cheek(its to light right now) more below the eyes where you covered/thinned out the lower eyeliner. And extend the lower lip's lipstick a little more towards the corners of the mouth. And darkin in the noseholes a tad more,with a dark to light process using brown. And if you want a seperation in the lips use a very dark red and paint a very thin line across for seperation,and lighten up considerably towards the corners of the mouth.
    Not many people are aware that a paint job can either make or break a piece.
    For example: i've seen excellent sculpts before painting and then after its been painted it look like hmmm??wow? that doesn't look very good,and your like what happened??? And i have seen not so good sculpts with a excellent paint job look amazingly different. Its all in how its executed with the paint and finishing touches that breath life into a piece.

    Lord of the Props... that is *outstanding*. I think I'm in love. :love

    Although she looks a little bit startled - like she's just seen a ghost.?

    Any chance of pics taken in less harsh light (preferrably daylight)?

    Cheers,
