Anyway, it turned out more reserved than I expected. Almost wary and uncertain, and I don't know why...but I like it. Like the stark simplicity contrasting the...well...almost hurt expression.
I dunno, maybe I'm reading too much into it. Truth is, The ear had been longer and the shoulder had sloped more smoothly to the bottom when I started out, but neither really worked as is, so I moved them back.
Hmph...this could almost be the cover for "Inherent Flaws." Maybe that's why I did it. Maybe that's where it came from. Whatever. I'm letting it dry so I can sign it and maybe put it up on eBay. See if I can sell it. The money'd come in handy.
