The first photo is where I left off, I was generally happy with the eyes but was lost with the background and the forehead was wrong.
Here it is now, after I picked it back up tonight. I had sketched on it a bit and gessoed over part of the face. Right now this is about what I have with the reference. This photo is pretty terrible though I need to wait for some better lighting to take another photo. I’m happy with the progress. The dark smear is where I started to add the black from the penguin suit but I’m not sure I like it so I wiped it off. I’m still not sure what I’m doing with the background but I like the face more than I did.
