Thank you Seliah-- I am trying to give him a unique look. I still have some work to do though and typical of me, I have a ton of projects bouncing around.

I think you're definitely on your way to getting that different look. I also like the particular brows you've chosen to use for him. I personally have a thing when it comes to eyebrows... they can make or break an entire texture, and his are nice. :)

I hear you loud and clear about multiple projects... I'm the same way! LOL

I know, some times I get frustrated with myself, but since I primarily do this for enjoyment, I work on things that I am in the mood for, which is why some of my projects take some time to hit the store. If I were methodical, I would be able to produce a lot more, but I have a lot of feeling for my art and so the feeling that I get when I am doing it is important. I will sometimes set aside a project when it starts feeling tedious. I love this hobby, so I am trying to preserve my passion for it and for me, that means bouncing around a bit LOL! I think that is how us artists are sometimes. I think you are right, eyebrows can really make or break a look.

That's a really good way to do it, AD. I made the mistake of taking my passion for photography into a commercial operation and it almost killed that passion. I would have been a much happier person if I'd stayed doing it because I loved it.

Yes Lorraine, I did the same thing with photography. I had a passion for it from the time I was in the 6th grade when my parents gave me a 110 film camera back in 1977. I got my first 35 mm hard body Canon AT1(I still have this) at a swap meet back in 1983 and I took that thing everywhere for the next couple of decades. I had a passion for nature photography, mainly I loved to shoot insects and plants. I did not switch from film to digital until 2005 when the SLR's got affordable enough to purchase and started getting to the point they could come close to film when I got a job as a photojournalist. That was a huge mistake. I lost my verve for taking pictures in my off time. I came to realize after awhile that all I did was photograph news stories anymore. No more art, no more fun, and it was a very deadline driven occupation. I did that for about 4 years. I had quit the job and about a year later I was walking around in the jungles on Guam taking in some last bit of the Island as I had to leave the next day, and I saw the Guam Ghost Orchid. It was late in the day with just a few hours before sundown, this was a flower that I had actually searched for repeatedly as I am a ghost orchid enthusiast, actually and orchid enthusiast in general. I realized that I did not have my camera. It was a mad dash to go back to my hotel room get that camera, and get back out there to get some pictures. I have occasionally felt that enthusiasm since then, but not nearly as often as I did before that job. I regret ever having done it. I will never repeat that mistake with another hobby.

Me neither. I now follow the edict 'if you are not having fun, you are not doing it right'.

Thank you Lisa, I plan to finish him up after Polly and a Dawn character I am working on with Luminescence3D right now.
