Welcome back (you've been missed), and thank you for the new image!
_________________
Love prevails.
~ Tracie Mckinney-Hammon

Have patience with everything unresolved in your heart and to try to love the questions themselves as if they were locked rooms or books written in a very foreign language. Don't search for the answers, which could not be given to you now, because you would not be able to live them. And the point is, to live everything. Live the questions now. Perhaps then, someday far in the future, you will gradually, without even noticing it, live your way into the answer.

Looks good. Is this one of the fabled female Haruchai?

Glad to see you again, hue of bone! Smile

Very well done. I think the face expression is a bit not like something I'd expect on a face of a Haruchai, but that may just seem to me.

Wave

Not bad; the skin texture looks a little plastic-y compared to some of your other works (the latest young Mhoram springs to mind), though. And agreeing with Effy about the expression...perhaps you could try something a soupcon more 'indifferent'?

Hope to see you around more!

I'm getting an elderly Michael York vibe from that portrait.

It reminded me of the chap that was in that karate program, the old man kept calling him "glasshopper" - David Caradine was it?

Yes (googled), but it was Kung Fu. Didn't realise he was dead. Wasn't he in that film with Jane Fonda "They shoot horses don't they"? Or was that a different Caradine?

No (googled again) that was Michael Sarrazin. They do look slightly alike. Embarassed

The skin is some seriously immense work Smile Not so sure about the expression again, this one feels even less Haruchai to me, though some of that may be because of the eyes, are they supposed to be like that?

No need to blush, people have different levels of face recognition, I'm generally awful at that, to the point there was a time I thought one of my favorite actors, namely Tim Curry, was three different actors Big Grin And I've got lots of more samples like that.

That's good! Much easier to see now that it's lightened up, and the eyes are better. Like the background too.

Has he invested in hair straighteners? I thought they were curly!

A lot more lifelike in the last image. The youthful neck creates a bit of a funny contrast, however.

The last one's very good.

If you want to make the cuts more realistic I think shading some of the bigger ones (like the one below the eye) might help.

What's with the eye-balls? They're always missin (except in the first picture.)

However, they were flat-faced and brown-skinned, with curly hair cropped short, as Iolanthe has already mentioned. I wouldn't mind seeing a version with a flatter nose and curly hair. [/i]

Eh, there's room for artistic license. The eyes are a hint at the haruchai mindwelding abilities I would think (or maybe an allegorical message?)

I wouldn't call the nose thin or long. Never really had a strong mental image of them but I remember their depiction in the Bed Time Hour (which had curly black wigs) and I just couldn't imagine them as haruchai. They were just wrong. This fellow however has a haruchai air.

Going a little bit off topic, what do we suppose the haruchai look like experience-wise? I remember an argument being made that while good fighters can be identified by the scars they sport, the really good fighters are babyfaced since they beat anyone who came close to them. I think the haruchai are more in the first category. They're not supermen, just really good fighters who have to face each other (their equals) as well as all sorts of horrible monsters Spoiler:
though maybe that's changed in the Last chronicles? Until Linden appeared did they fight anyone?

I think I preferred the last one. This one looks like his inner fire's bit quenched. Hellfire, that's not the Haruchai way! Cussing

Yes. That's the hair. Of course, it's silver, he's an aged Haruchai. But for that, it's about time we saw some curly hair.

He should have a receding hairline. On the basis of all that sufficient thinking raises the head temperature. Very Happy
