Back at it.
I messed with his hair (I grew him some), and the middle image shows a close-up. It’s subtle, but I think it’s (mostly) finished. I also gave him the start of a shirt. I’m not sure yet what color I’m going for, but I hope I’ll know when I find it. In the meantime I’m painting the cake which has been a pain, and I don’t really know why. I do like the stripes on the candles though.
By the way, the top photo shows a kind of glow at the right and left edges because I was able to open the studio door and drink in the sunshine while I worked! When I took the photo, all that light seeped in and gave the edge a purple haze.
