I've skipped blogging the previous three WIP shots on this guy - and wasn't going to post him until he was finished - but as I'm becoming happier and happier with the results... well, I had to share.
This bad boy is still only at the 50% mark and I'm a bit daunted by how much I have to complete in order to get this guy to the level of painting I'm trying to achieve. It's getting more and more tempting to take shortcuts and speed things up.
I'm tempted to pick up another project for awhile, and come back to this one afresh, but then I worry that it will languish on a shelf for weeks (or months) before I pick it up again. So I'll keep plugging away and stab myself in the eye with a paintbrush every time I catch myself taking a shortcut.
