Sachmo update

well worked on this guy some more yesterday, finally getting his nose right, I think I painted it over about 5 times. Still trying to get the eyes and shadows right. Waiting to hear from the client about this update....


I'm linking this one for Paint Party Friday because I have not gotten to do any other painting this week. Hope to get back to this guy this afternoon and get him finished up. Would like to deliver him soon. Check out the other artists participating by clicking on the link in the right side bar.
