Here I've attempted to paint my test levy's cape with the three color method. Once again I've gone too light with mid-tone and highlight color and had to go back and hit them with a wash. I'm not entirely happy with the results, but I'm not dissatisfied enough to do it again:
I hope you enjoy the very photogenic background I downloaded off of the teh interwebs.
The hyper-observant among you may have noticed some other changes as well. I went back and tried to tighten up his legs a bit by adding more base color and shrinking the shade color. Also, despite what I told myself (and you, my loyal viewers), I attempted to paint some eyes on him. This is just as hard as they say it is and necessitated repainting most of the face. I still need to shrink the eyes some. I think I might need a 10/0 brush to do it though. I have no idea how some people can paint two-tone eyelids on these little guys.
While I was working I noticed a flat spot on his head that has no hair texture. You can see it in the third photo. I guess I'll have to X-acto some grooves into that patch?
Anyhoo, getting pretty close. Hair, belt, basing and we are done!
