I'm always emotional in RPG games and ME is no exception. When I think of Benezia, I remember that her main goal was to convince Saren to turn back to the good way but she failed. I see this inner struggle in your pose, as if you were trying to overcome the indoctrination process. I like that feeling. Good job, as always ;)

Cheers! I always wanted to know more about Benezia and her past. Her headdress was so symbolic to her appearance when the player meets her that i felt she would be less of a enemy if you could see her without it. (i also wanted to show off the paint job id done on the prosthetic lol)

You did it very well. All you asari skin work looks very real. And same here when it comes to the Benezia herself: in this headdress she looks like book example of a villain but at second glance you can see how tormented she is.

Thanks!! in part thanks to your great headpiece! Even with the paint flaking off when i got to the hotel (think being in the hold of the airplane did it) and repainting it by hand the night before, it turned out ok! Plan to do a proper airbrush repaint of this before Expo

Did you do a PAX layer first?  That'll usually help!  And doing thin layers of paint (if you're not airbrushing).

Let me know if you need any help! :)

Yeah, pax first then airbrushed the paint on...but it was peeling off really bad i could strip it down to its bare latex with just my fingers! Only thing i could think off, was the very cold plane hold messed with the paints and pax

That might be it. Hm... or maybe the mixture of prosaide to paint? Sometimes that will mess with it. Try using more prosaide to keep it flexible!
