It's coming together like I imagined it :)

A couple of weeks ago, I shared a first look at my brown wizard rug. Here are a couple of updated pictures. I'm attempting some camouflage (very rudimentary) art in this rug. First the stepped back view of the whole rug.

I'm trying to combine a wizard and owl in this piece to represent the brown wizard in LOTR.  From a distance his face appears to have an oversized nose with a bump. This was a happy surprise to me. Because,
 his broken nose is
really is the tip of his nose, with a moustache beneath. His robe is supposed to emulate shadows on foliage, and kind of be a form of camo... I'll take a pic of the plaid wool that is making this work so well to me.

Of course, I have a mental image that I'm comparing it too. It is coming along great to me. (Rather immodest, but like a child, my work delights me). The proddy eyebrows are just like my old lady eyebrow hairs!  Hope you like it too.

I think he's coming along wonderfully. I like how your putting all the color together. I'll be looking forward to seeing more progress.
