Soul-less ginger

Or a WIP for Black Widow, your call.

I am both frustrated and calmed by painting such a tiny model.  I had a few frustrations with my skin paint coming out a bit splotchy but I am more or less happy with the skin.  I am a bit frustrated with the eyes but they are passable as they are barely visible at that itty bitty size anyways.

I decided to go with a freehand zipper after touching up the body suit and will move onto the highlights and painting of the straps and armour patches.  I am thinking of keeping her body suit black but making her holsters, belt and armour pieces (shoulder pads, knee pads, and greaves) a dark grey.

A short post, but hopefully inspires you to do what I have done: use a camera to double check your fiddly tiny bit painting.

    The freehand zipper can be easily identified as such, well done. You could give the skin a glaze with a more rosy colour, but depends how you see the character.

      I’m having a tough time with her skin. I thought it looked too pale but it is the black making her seem so pale. I did some tests on other pieces with her final highlight (which looked nice and rosy) but it was actually paler that her skin. I will try bringing the black down a shade and adding some flush to her cheeks.
