So today I chose to try again. I’m much happier with the results. I “zoomed” out and tried smudging for the first time since I was in school. I’ve never felt that confident smudging but it seems to work well for this picture and I am absolutely happy with the Evane figure which I don’t say about anything very often. I do however feel quite miffed with the Tristan character who I’m convinced is consciously refusing to stop looking demented! More boy practice required I think.
