Thank you Nolan and John!

I sent the image to the client and she loved it! She said she had tears in her eyes seeing it. I was so relieved because I wasn’t very confident about this one. After showing her daughters she contacted me again and asked if I could add a few more white hairs around the eyes (eyebrow area). She said he was very old and his eyes were usually hard to see through his hair.
I guess I’ll work on that a bit today and see what I can do. I hope you aren’t tired of seeing Thor, because I’ll probably repost before I send it to her.

EmmaLee, rest assured that we NEVER get tired of seeing your work and the transformation of a somewhat very difficult reference photo into such a beautiful masterpiece which you did.  I don't know what a few more white hairs will achieve but looking forward to seeing what you do with it. I knew that your client would be over the moon with what you had already achieved for you are an outstanding animal artist.

Ahh, thank you so much Patricia!

Actually she wants more hair around the eyes with a few white hairs mixed in. She mentioned that he had “old man eyebrows.” So I need to make his eyes look less visible and age him a bit.  :sweat:

Post away EmmaLee, on some of my earlier works I think I may have posted progress reports 8 or 9 times! Never worry about  ´over-posting´. You´ll be the first to know when we´re tired of it....   :attacked:         :2funny:
I´m looking forward to seeing what little tweaks you end up with. Take your time, you´ll get it done.  :cheering: :cheering: :cheering:
Cheers, Val

Thank you MaryLou and Val!

Ok here is old man Thor.  Haha
I definitely aged him. I hope the client likes this better. She might want more of his eyes covered.  :sweat:  I’m ready to move on to a different project.
