Re: a study in form and light

no, this was all me. I get one hundred percent of the glory or the blame! I really should have thought about this before (like the eagle head made from wood).

Re: a study in form and light

some more warping and some pathetic shading. I now desperately need to find some kind of reference image where the light is coming from the left and the body is reclined in a similar fashion! b7.jpg Will you now use this to enhance the figure of your latest female character in the Benedikt story?
