As you see, I have brightened the highlights in the face a little. It remains to be seen if I need to add anymore to that when the hair has been added. The ear was done using the same technique as the face making sure to give the highlight a shadow to give it a 3D effect. I am finding the photos at different stages very helpful, as it shows up the little flaws you don't necessarily spot while painting. I find it another way of stepping back and assessing the work ( a handy tip if your space is limited).
