Wow, thanks SMF! Mostly I used a hard brush with relatively low opacity so I could go over and then smudged it. However, I think I over-smudged :).
Your avatar is absolutely beautiful!
On a completely different note, because my computer is set to Australian time, you supposedly posted that at three in the morning, lol.
And here is my work on the face of my new guy. It was supposed to be palomino but turning darker than I thought. NOT happy with the darker nose, it should have more of a 'slope' to it, I think...
ETA this killed the quality, as per usual.
