So, I don't think Larry here is going to be good enough for competition; at least, I don't think he's going to be as good as the elf girl. I'm going to try to finish him anyway and take him for feedback. I'm honestly not sure if I'm screwing something up or if it's just that I'm using a color palette I'm not used to, with a level of contrast I'm not used to. So I'll at least get some opinions on the thing.
Anyway, today I darkened the shadows on the orange robe back down a bit and did the sleeves and trousers. I need to re-line a couple of spots by his hands.
