London Training Company Portraits

Four more stages of Raj. Now you really need to sharpen your powers of observation to spot the difference. I'm nearly finished and will only post the final stage when I'm happy with the tiniest details. There isn't much point posting any more until then. So for now, and in case you are staring at these four wondering what I've been playing at, let me explain: firstly I worked on balancing the skintone, then I added in more shadow and the finer details around the eyes, eyebrows and mouth. I thought I'd pretty much finished but when I came back to it the next day I decided the bags I'd given Raj under his eyes made him look too old. To rectify this I scumbled white into the shadows which made him look decidedly ill, so to rectify that I added yellow, red and brown to bring the skin back to body temperature. Phew! Nearly there.
