I have now started on his uniform. This part should go fairly fast since I have already worked out the palette. I just need the days when I can work on it. The weather's back to being humid, so it's back to McDonald's tomorrow. Also, the face is still unfinished and will be finished when the uniform is done.
Hoping to have this done by the end of the month, first week of July at the latest. Then I have to start on another soldier portrait.
I can see the light at the end of the tunnel on this at long last!
