Well, there was some learning on this one. For some reason, I had a lot of trouble with the 'fur' areas and especially the face. In hindsight, I believe I stacked way too many layers of paint up and fiddled with it way too much. I wiped the face clean and started over on it three times. It still didn't turn out great, but it is certainly better than earlier iterations. The fur texture retained too much of the pre-glaze which led to trouble down the road trying to blend thick layers. In the wise words of James Wappel - "Less is more, more is way too much."
There are parts that I think turned out quite well and were very easy to accomplish. I didn't have any silver oil at the time so made due with a Payne's Gray pre-glaze and dry-brushing white to achieve what I think is a pretty decent-looking metallic hand-claw device. I also like how the leather clothing turned out.
