    Really like the eyes, you've made them very expressive. The antlers are a good touch and look really nice.

    Thanks Simon, The antlers look a bit odd, perched on top of the very tall backpack, but they add a bit of width, and also help set the picture. I'm really happy with how they have come out.

    I need to work on the ropes, they are very finely cast, but unfortunately some are a bit brittle, and have broken in bits. I may have to get some rigging string to fix it.

    I'm entering the home straight, which as any long distance runner knows, is the hardest part...
    I'm happy with the overall results so far, now it's just the finishing touches, and a few touch ups.
    Right?

    I need to finish the straps for the backpack, the arms are only loosely put in place, and the ropes need a bit more definition. I'm not 100% happy with the beard yet, I might add a bit of grey in there.

    The photograph shows the red a bit more vivid than it is in real life, I just can't get this phone camera to tone it down.

    Time to start wrapping it up, or I'll tinker for ever...
    A few touches to fix, the arms are not fixed in place yet, I'm not sure what I want to do to his walking stick yet. I actually like the 'bare, just debarked" look, but I need to practise that ton a piece of rod first, to get the colouring right. The antlers will need some strong to replace the broken resin .

    Hi Henk

    He’s looking good , I would just put a light wash over the stick to brink out the texture a bit more
