I made this for my wife for Valentines day. It is my first try at CYO.
There are fun things that we joke about that I had incorporated into it. Like the initials on the back of the head, If you were in school in the 80's this is what it looked like, along with the TLA mark. LOL. Our kids initials are on one ear and the year we got married on the other. If you are trying to figure out how there are 5 kids in 2.5 years, just ask. LOL.
I painted the body first and liked the way it looked so I wanted to leave the front clean so it would not take away from the body. The back is fully covered which is okay by me. But, I am glad I left the front clean.
There is also a hidden Mickey.
I used oil based paint pens on all colors except the pink, that was water based. Now I need to seal it.
