I have worked on this puffin most of today and I am so pleased with him. After making my "bust" puffin, I challenged myself to do a full body - just to make sure it wasn't a fluke!
Heavy threadpainting is not my normal MO. I have done a few pieces, including my bust puffin I mentioned above, but I find it very time consuming and usually I like the look of thread sketching better. It lends a lighter, more free look.
With that said, here is my newest puffin and I think my all time best!
