Since you guys are such great help I am going to post him here and see if I can get some input. He's 100% digital. I am emotionally involved with this little fella. Hes a work in progress. I really want him to look the best he can http://www.wetcanvas.com/ubb/biggrin.gif So please.. post any suggestions!

cute - I have a weird response. I like what I see and actually want to see more. Is this a cropped version or the whole thing? What if the composition has more space to the left so it seemed like the gnome was looking toward something - just a little more of an environment. Obviously it is not a necessary thing, but just a personal compositional preference - maybe that is not what you are looking for?

One more question...

Hes going to have tufts of hair coming out of that hat a trimmed beard. (and a lot of detail work on his clothing is left to be done as well) Does anyone have any good suggestions or guidelines on applying facial hair? I have shaved it off, but never put it on.

I am going to give him a bit more room to the left and see how that works. That was exactly the kind of thing I am looking for. Thank you Shriner http://www.wetcanvas.com/ubb/smile.gif

Really good Shehaub. One thing i noticed is that his hands seem really tiny or is that a characteristic of gnomes? http://www.wetcanvas.com/ubb/biggrin.gif I think you have a winner here!

Tossing my 2 cents in. I figure you're already going to do this but I'll mention it anyway, I think relected light in his eyes would really bring this little guy to life.

I have enlarged his hands and done some highlight/shade work on him a bit. He seems to be coming together pretty well.

I have yet to expand his surroundings, but that is probably going to be my next adventure. I am hoping he is looking more and more "regal". Hes supposed to be the king.
