I wasn't sure if I was going to continue with this piece. Found some time the last couple of days to solider on, as I figured, the worse I could do is dump it in the bin and start over.
Have been trying some new things.. .. example.. for the wood grain of the table, I used my watercolor pencil but instead of using water.. I used Linseed oil. It did give me the richer colors I was looking for. But it does case some issues. Added so shadows back in and just started working on Nari's face. Decided to give her green eyes this time. Started with some base color on her face and inner ears. Still not sure how this will turn out, but I will keep working on it.
