I finished the hands and the knife today! I am almost done. I just have to do the butterfly which shouldn't take that long, but it will be weird since it is bathed in shadow. I am very happy with how the knife turned out. I tried to do some rusty parts, but they didn't really turn out well so I just glazed over them with some black and it turned out fine. I especially love the handel and all of the highlight bits. You don't really see any in the actual blade itself because it is turned against the light, but I still looks cool. The top hand looks a bit off. I don't think the blending is as good as it can be, and the fingers look a bit off(I think they might be a bit chunky looking, but that is in part because of the kind of awkward angle(especially the pinkie finger.) Regardless, I am happy with how it is turning out and I am excited to finish it this weekend.

I finished the face, i think. I am happy with how it is looking. I might fix up a few things when i go in again on monday. It has been fun working on this :)
