Man Goes Green

The green man finally got some of his proper colour, making him look quite different. A layer of Olive green over the background has made it drop back considerably with a vaguely leafy feel, while the ivy emerging from his mouth has been glazed with a layer of Sap Green, thicker in the “v” shapes between the lighter veins of the leaves.

It was focused work that took several hours to complete, but it’s very worthwhile. He’s beginning to feel pretty close to completion now. I hope to finish up in the next couple of days.
