hi  man!  I lay each section of hair down on a glass plate first and glue the cut end. after that dries I have hair peices I pull off of the glass. I trim the gluey end so I have a nice clean peice of hair with a strip of dried glue holding it.

 I then apply the peices working with the way they naturaly want to curl or flow.  Start with forehead peices falling towards the face and the side then working back  in layers untill you get to the nape.  the nape hair is shorter than the front too.
 Only the tips of the hair have a holding gel. the rest of the hair is soft to the touch.

She looks like a living painting. Her face is so expressive, you can just see the sorrow in her eyes, and I love the effect you've done to make her hair stand up. Did you use wire for that?

her  hair is applied just a bit at a time and glued at the root in a flowing direction.This way it lays as if its being blown

Now got 'Stormy Weather' stuck in my head...

Is the hair fixed in that windswept style? I love her cold weather face; pink nose tip, flushed cheeks, and the little muscle under each eye. Lovely.

It's been awhile, girl. :)

Reminds me of Les Mis'. A very human face and not so elvish as I'm accustomed to seeing in your works. Any inspirations?

Sleetwealth Featured By Owner Apr 16, 2013  Professional Traditional Artist
Thats a pretty good guess since i had the art for Les Mis' on my muse board for a long time. Cosette with the giant mop. She was not directly inspired by anything tho.
