Is it a curtain, or a wall of ice?

Looking good Win :clap: :clap: :clap:

I am just battling to tell if she has her head behind the gap or through it. The left eye suggest behind, and the chin area suggests through.
Let me know which it is then I can assist in getting the effect correct O0

Thank you Nolan, shes behind the gap, I tried to fix that around the chin by running some of the lighter bits up onto the chin and lightening some of the chin line but it didnt quite work. I would appreciate your advise.

awesome, as she is behind the gap, what you need to have is a found edge all the way around the edge of the wood so you can see a distinct difference between the face and the wood.

There are four ways to do this:

1) Add more wood texture / grain and bring that right up to the edge of the gap so that it abruptly stops creating a difference in texture between the face and the wood

2) Add more contrast between the face and the wood. At the moment the face is darker so you could add more contrasts into the face to enhance the tonal value change between wood and face.

3) In this scene the light is coming from the right to the left, so I am expecting the wood to cast a shadow on the face right side of the face.

4) The bottom gap in the wood follows the exact silhouette of the jaw and chin creating the illusion that the bottom half of the face is protruding through the gap in the wood. Change the shape of the gap to break the jaw / chin silhouette illusion O0

Here is my updated sketch with the changes suggested. Not sure I quite got it Nolan. I seem to have lost some of her face now :confused:

Looks great to me Win. The shading on her left does the trick.
