Just my humble opinion. I'd just concentrate on the head and shoulders and no details in the background.

Looks like a little Jack Russell. (?) Doing an incredible job so far.  O0

As far as the background, you could try a very fine, light sanding to get a grey tone. You'll want to practice that on a different piece first to see if you like the effect. I tried it a while back and you can get some interesting effects. Put in his feet in much the same way as you did his lower chest, not quite as fluffy, although fluffy slippers would be kinda cute    :jk:

I rather like the background as is though, he stands out quite nicely.  O0    :clap: :clap: :clap:

Thanks for adding the photo Mea.
Robbie this is excellent :clap:   :clap: as one has to be careful as you can't fix mistakes.
I too would leave the background untouched.
