Still working on Rhea. For the last few weeks I've been working on the bark texture and redoing the hands/roots. I've also been working on the stream and the overall feel/color in the background. I've added additional texture and details to the background and will start working on the foreground soon.
At this point I'm guessing about 40 hours left in finishing the piece.
There's some funkiness in the lighting as I'm finding it difficult to set up decent lights in the area I'm currently working in. Hopefully I'll figure this out soon.
Also, I'm still getting used to this new web profile I'm using, so as a tip if you make your browser about half normal size the pictures will enlarge.
