I'm pretty happy with the hair, I just need to go back and add a bit of shading in a few spots. However, I can't figure out how I should paint the "halo" effect on his hair style. Any help on that subject would be appreciated :D.
Oh, and dat second photo...his left eye (the one on the right for us :P) looks pretty crazy. While I might say this is the camera showing me some faults, I seriously went and stared at the figure for like half an hour trying to figure out how that eye looked that way in the photo. It just doesn't...so just chalk that up to camera tricks. Never had the camera do something like that to me before though.

The hair and skin are both looking excellent, and I must say that I'm impressed with the scars you added to his back.
A brief note on your camera-fu: I've noticed that your recent photos have a bluish-purple tint to them. I've run into this same problem while trying to take pictures of Vivian, but I eventually figured out what the problem was. Next time you take some photos, don't use my old camera; use the other one. And this time, set the camera to "incandescent" mode while using NORMAL lightbulbs. That removed the blue and made for very nice pictures. That's what I'm doing right now, and I have to say that my current photos are my best work ever (sans some additional lighting...).
Also, you're making me jealous as you have most likely passed me up in skill level, but I'm bogged down painting this stupid dwarf army (*grumble, grumble* like a true dwarf) and haven't had any time to practice on real display pieces. Just wait till after ReaperCon!
Anyway, good to see you painting again, but now you owe me a post on my WIP.
