Some progress on Mr. Sea
Okay, so these fins are HARD to mosaic. I tried a couple things before deciding to define the edge then let it dry good before I try adding the sides.
As I mentioned before, I redid the eyes and nose three times before settling on this:
boy, the face really defines the mood of the whole character, I discovered. But this is what I wanted. The others ranged from goofy to strange, lol.
This section of white on the side is supposed to be the splash when he comes out of the water. I was going to put a few of them around him and I've got NO IDEA whether the concept is going to work or not. This is the kind of seat-of-my-pants side of mosaic that I hate (I prefer knowing whether or not something is good before I do it LOL), but what can you do? Sometimes, you've got to just run with something and if it ends up sucking, live and learn!
3D mosaic is definitely a challenge, but I'm having a lot of fun watching him come to life.
