Thanks Val, my daughter played around with an app on her IPhone with a photo of mine and sent me this. I found that this is perfect as an Avatar. 😂

Added the skin color base on the face, as well as below the chin (with shadows) Worked on the eyes, eyebrows and the ear. Leaving for Chicago in a hour so I won't be able to work on this again until next week. But as always, thoughts of what I've done so far are greatly appreciated!!
Cheers,
Sharon

Hi everyone! Back from our working trip to Chicago and then had to recover from a nasty cold I got there. Doing better now so picked up the brush and continued to work on Mr Hopkins. I’ve done the skin and the hair. Working on the beard. Do you think the beard needs to be darker? What do you think is the dark area around the lips? Is it black beard hair? Skin colored that is tan like the neck? Should the areas under the checkbone be more black hairs? Clothes are so much easier to paint than a bearded face? Would really appreciate any suggestions. Many thanks!!
Cheers,
Sharon
