Thank you to everyone who posted comments here and over at this thread on DOA. With your help, I learned where to add color to Frank’s face, both in terms of shading and blush.
First, here’s my beautiful model, Frank N. Furter as portrayed by Tim Curry in Rocky Horror:
Before we start, a special thank you to the lovely and talented DOA member Magic Toadstool, who summarized my questions about blush with a nice diagram:
Armed with helpful tips, I did eye socket and nasal shading in Prismacolor Violet [PC932] with a light overlay of Rose [PC929]. My new best friend the Prismacolor Colorless Blender [PC1077] softened the shades nicely. After that, I combined Rose with the slightly lighter [and aptly named] Blush [PC928] for the actual blush. I blended with the Colorless Blender and my eraser.
Here’s what he looks like now. Constructive criticism on the purple shadows will be cheerfully ignored, but I solicit opinions on the blush. What do you think?
He shoots well from all angles. I especially like this up-the-nose shot. No, really, I do.
I think I’ve figured out why I like the Yukinojo sculpt so much. It reminds me of my own facial structure and features [mostly around the jawline and cheeks].
