17th Century Polish Hussar - Update 2

A few refinements on this wonderful bust to share. The face is near completion with further highlights, hair painted and the eyes further refined. I have to say that I'm not totally thrilled with the eyes. From some angles they look great, while from others they aren't quite right.

The pattern is outlined on his coat in a mixture of Mars Black and Cadmium Red. I wanted the pattern to be present but subtle. I plan to go back and work subtle shade shifts into this area to bring out the pattern more.
