Please, no, not literally. n_n
Nothing exciting, photo-wise, but Jer’s Sleeping Sevy head recently came back from being repainted (again), so I’m trying to make peace with the new look.
From a technical standpoint, it’s excellent, with exceptional linework. From a “capturing what I asked for” view, it’s… maybe a little less on the money, which is why I’m struggling a bit with him. His lips are… still kind of hot pink (and this after multiple attempts and dozens of references to get them to the color I wanted), and his overall appearance strikes me as more “fashion model glamor-puss” than “grumpy fighter-type”. I think darkening his lip crease and extending the corners might help with that?
I dunno. Like I said, I’m trying to give him a chance and make it work.
Might’ve gone a bit overboard… oops.
Ever since the Carrot-kun fiasco, I’ve been dragging my feet on photographing Jer again. The faceup on his other head was such a disappointment that I scheduled a slot with a different artist to get him repainted as soon as I could (he went out in early September), but it’s going to be at least a few more weeks before I expect him back.
I’m hoping – really, really hoping – that this time it will work out better, and I didn’t want to spend too much energy and work on an old version of him that would be rendered obsolete. But I miss sharing him, so…
