I've started the panting process. I has been kind of challenging because of the size of the canvas, and I suck at color mixing. I am happy with the tongue, but I think I am going to go in and fix the teeth, and make there be more darks. I will hopefully get this finished in the first week of August, but I am going out of town for the next two weeks and for the next two weeks I have camp, so it is going to be challenging. I am completely changing the background, probably to a more blue green color, but I don't really know what color to make the hair. So if anyone is reading this and has a suggestion, feel free to drop it in the comments.
I just want to comment that the last two Lunchtime Lecturers(Sasha Waters Freyer and John Freyer) have the same last name: Freyer. Are they related or is this just a coincidence?

Also I have no idea how to give a credit line to his work because they are so complex and especially for All My Life for Sale have a huge amount of elements and media. Because of that, I am not going to give them credit lines beyond the name of the project associated with each picture.
