I really like how the texture of the paper plays in the final result. Very cutie guy!

Shelley. He's roly AND poly! I love the brushwork you've done here. I would have mistakenly overworked the detail. This is wonderfully done.

Thank you Jamie & Brian - He was more challenging than I had thought he'd be. Glad you like him!
