The eyes of Rodin

Just a quick update on Rodin today.  He’s been a bit slow starting, worked on him everyday this past week but played with colors, set a few bits then would pull them out and change my mind.

His eyes are done at this point and part of a cheek, earlier on he was experiencing what any woman who’s ever used cheap mascara has experienced, raccoon eyes.  😉  They’re still there a tiny bit but it will all blend in once the areas around the eyes are better filled.  At least I’m hoping they will!

No matter how hard I try, I just keep going tiny with the pieces, really really need to break out of this habit then the mosaics would complete a lot faster.  But with bigger pieces it always feels for me like less effect in shading and shaping occur so inevitably I end up going small.  Arrgghh!  Rodin will take some time, I may start a second project just to avoid burn out from only working on one thing.
