This is my entry for the 14th Flood the Portal Friday.

The theme ws facial hair.

Late background is late.

I hope you like it!

Detail is nice, but its just a addition to the object.
And objects are basically light and shadows, get these down perfectly first.
I think you should rather spend the time your spending detailing to get the values down better.
Anyway, nice detail!

Luwano responds:

Too true! I need more patience and practice to get those down a lot better. But I just love to play around when drawing textures manually. I should probably do more exercises and less doodling... and less procrastination.

Thanks for your advice.

I love how detail you went through with the objects even though there are 2 things that bother me. Everything is too sharp, not a big problem but it tends to get my eyes off from the main focus, the wood board back end need to be soften or blurred a little. The second being there is no shadows, the things that does look kind of like shadow isn't strong enough.

What I do really like though is the realistic detail on plastic shave blade holder and its design and I also like the wooden ornament thing that holds the hair bristle :)

Luwano responds:

Yeah I should have paid more attention to the shadow and basically to the proper composition of lights and darks. Thanks for the review and the pointer about the sharpness / focus.
