I've been hooking as much as life will allow. It's seems to work...Leo is done...for the most part...his tail is in need of a bit tweaking.
The early morning light does not show his colors at their best...he's a very colorful guy.
Now, it's on to the flowers and background.
I made a big booboo when I first outlined his body. Do you see the double row going up his leg and then turning?...it shouldn't be there. His mane should be there. (I was taught to outline the main motif!!!) Big dilemma here...if I take the line out and try to piece in the tiny ends of his mane it will look horrendous. In truth, the booboo is growing on me...it somehow looks more antique-y primitive. I'm pretty sure I'm going to leave it alone. Comments...ideas? You hookers extraordinaire please share your thoughts. Critiques are most welcome.
The lavender flower is coming out..I was playing around.
Enjoy the day,
