    I have designed a new angel, a full description of which is on my blog. I have one problem, to have a face or not.




    So my question is this:

    No face
    Face in a lighter colour ink
    Leave face as it is


    Please help

    I really like the face I think it makes it much more friendly and gentle.
    I think it looks ok as it is, though I can see what you mean about it being a lot darker than the rest. Maybe you could use a grey rather than black next time to tone it down a bit.

    I like Melanie's suggestion to use grey, as it ties in with the dove and will compliment the pink too, lovely work

    I like the face too, and think it is fine as it is (: I don't know if it would become a bit "something and nothing" in lighter. Maybe something with a brown hue to it rather than black, to tone in with the browns in her dress, and the earthy tones of her hair and wings would work?

    Personally speaking, I like it as it is but if you do lighten it don't do it too miuch.

    She's lovely Diane. Could you use a spare bit of glass to experiment on, with/without eyebrows, different shades. I like the brown idea, or maybe even a very pale pink, sort of more a hint of a face. Celeste, the angel you made that I have, has no face and I love her like that, I couldn't imagine a face on her, so I'm sort of comparing this face with hers. They're both very serence looking, beautiful

    i think it is beautiful, maybe go with a browner tone with a pinker colour for her lips?

    thanks for all the comments and votes. I have another one on the table at the moment, so she has no face, but as she has dark brown hair and green dress I think black will be ok for her face. I will however, do a bit of experimenting!
