Thanks! I greatly appreciate it. And I must agree... it looks far less demented without the "zombie eyes."

Do NOT rush this. No commission is worth doing less than your best(which is top notch). You have great command of the brush.

I would suggest that you complete the eyes before the rest of what you have left. I admire your talent.

Thanks DLeeG! I greatly appreciate it. I've found that I can't really rush myself. I still don't spare any detail, but at least I'm sort of "forcing" myself to work.
Which I've also found is hard to do.

I almost did do the eyes early (because the white spaces were distracting even me) but I managed to use that as motivation to finish I guess.

For those curious, my teacher and her husband (and everyone else) loved them. My commission was paid in-full with their happiness, an A+ in art class, and an old Rapidograph pen.

Wow...that is some amazing detail....

If that was me, I honestly would have left the eyes unfinished. That was incredibly creepy. XD

Thanks fhyde! I used a size 2/0 brush to its end on this one alone. I'm looking at it now and it's pretty disheveled. Actually not sure why I still have it...

I would have probably left them blank if I didn't get paid to do it... I can be demented at times. :P
But, I have noticed that more people liked them as zombies than children.
