Some face painting tests. I used black spray (GW), bugman’s glow (GW), sunny skintone (Vallejo) and reikland fleshshade (GW). Pretty ok, but I’m not happy with the consistency of the vallejo paint and next time I will use a darker tone for less contrast and less layers, which took of some skin smoothness
Those finely barred feathers on the sparrowhawk's torso are simple and yet tricky to do at the same time. Like the grass in my kangaroo coaster, I need to make sure it doesn't end up looking like a uniform bunch of lines. The bars follow the contours of the feathers, which in turn follow the contours of the sparrowhawk's body shape. Some of them overlap, and some are ruffled to reveal the soft down between them. It's a simple pattern but it needs to be done right in order to look natural, and it's simplicity is what makes it so easy to get wrong!

Artists . @jeeamirza @pomegranates @samira.mian @islamicillumination @saara_0_0 @shaheen.kasmani @maaidanoor @amberkhokhar @wasidaniju @azizaesque . . About the above artwork... "This diptych is a prelude to the artist’s piece Garden of Reflection. . It depicts two birds that are searching for one another, awaiting the promised reunion. The golden sun shines down on the birds as a symbol of light and hope. They fly from tree to tree in search of one another so they can join and rest together in the Gardens of Paradise. They knew each other once upon a time, they lost each other, but under the Light they will be reunited as promised by their Creator. The Noor (light) of God will shine over them, there will be peace, there will be love, and there will be an eternity together." . .
