|Hasbro Princess Leia repaint work-in-progress - general skin tone|
|General skin tones aside, Leia's facial features has yet to take shape ...|
|... as her lips, eyes and cheek blush needs to be painted on|
Each and every attempt at painting skin tone has resulted in a better understanding of how acrylic paint can be manipulated to simulate skin. For me at least this has been the case. What I've learned is no amount of how-to videos or tutorial blogs can ultimately be of help unless you practice ... a lot. Pretty obvious one would think but harder to put into action especially if you procrastinate like me.
|Of all Hasbro Princess Leia's features, her hands lack the most detail ...|
|... making it the hardest parts to paint well|
This repaint project is turning out to be a tough challenge because of the very simplicity of the Hasbro Leia action figure. With just a simple white gown, skin and hair forming the main attributes of this figurine, there's simply no place to hide when you don't paint well. It's definitely the scariest project I've attempted so far. Chances of crashing and burning are ridiculously high.
|Hasbro Princess Leia is all set for her final makeover|
In addition to Hasbro Leia's general skin tone, I also touched up the whites of her diplomatic gown. Just a bit here and there to smoothen out transitions. All done in final preparation before Leia's facial features - eyes, cheek blush, lips - are painted in. And then she will be finished ... by the next post.
