I've customized Saito yesterday!
He is my first custom repaint with hair attachment :D
It was hard, but also a lot of fun :D
Actually, I was repainting his beard and eyebrows FIVE times!
hahahaha - I was trying some different techniques almost every time :D
Finally, I was satisfied with the look, so for now it will stay :D
I'm not a wig maker...so his hair could be better.
I know it has some minor issues with the way it looks.
That was my first time though, so please bear with it somehow :D
I used white goat hair :)
I love his eyes :D I'm super happy how I painted them hahahaha
Sorry for not being modest about it, but I'm really, really happy  ❤ ❤
(He has heterochromia.  His right eye is blue with brown and left blue-greenish)
He is very photogenic :D
I took some photos while working, in case if you're interested in the full process:)
1. I washed out some of the original painting
2. Painted his beard and eyebrows
3. Painted his eyes 
4. Cut out all his hair
 
5. Marked directions for "growth" of "new hair"
6. Started sticking the hair to the scalp (it took some time) :D
He looked hilarious at the end XD XD XD
7. Cut his hair (and then saw some mistakes with gluing and cutting :P hihihi...)
8. I washed out all my painting (without eyes :P) and painted him again - the fifth time! 
(he looks soo young and "strange" without his facial hair
Believe me, it was a lot of fun

Now is Akiko's turn
