Another dark and gloomy one tonight - sorry - I just love doing them
The skull has been living in the garden for a few months - I think it can get another coating of yoghurt and go back outside for a while - plus the lower jaw which I forgot to do. It's making good progress given that it was rather bright plastic and now is duller plastic!
I opted just to use the modelling lights on the strobes tonight - one high up at about 45 degrees - the other far lower and pointing at the end of the violin.
I'll pop up the original so you can see the effect of adding some topaz adjust to bring out the dark bits. I'm hoping that when I look at it again tomorrow I don't spot anything horrible!
I really really want to find a nice old bit of oak tabletop next ........
I'm rather pleased with the result
