Painting the face

The face of this figure was already primed some time and was desperate waiting to be painted. Inspired by the stunning paintwork of Jaume Ortiz on this figure few years ago I decided to try it myself. I first started  placing the rough highlights and shadows on the face and continued blending all the transitions. This is the current status of the face. I still have to paint the eyebrows, eyes and lips and do some more blending in around the mouth area.

Cheers,
Marcel.
