SAL Update: Green Iguana #28

Has it been three weeks again? I guess so! – Spring has sprung around here, so I’ve been trying to spend more time outdoors. But nevertheless, this little guy continues to be addictive. Here’s where I was last time:

Green Iguana - 2019-04-06

And this is today’s picture:

Green Iguana - 2019-04-28

Quite a bit of progress! I worked on the area above his eye as well as the background. I almost got a page finish at the top, and then it’s down to four of the twelve pattern pages that still have open areas, and just one of those is completely white! While the end is not quite in sight, I’m getting there!

Today’s progress on Mr. Iguana – here’s the shot from three weeks ago:

Green Iguana - 2019-03-17

In the meantime, I’ve finished filling in the area under his eye, and once that was done, moved the frame a bit up. Therefore it was time to take another full picture of him!

It’s been another week since then, and I’ve made some progress on the area behind his eye:

Green Iguana - 2019-04-06

Onwards to filling in above his eye and doing the background at the top, so I can move the frame over to the left.

Mr. Iguana got a finished eye today! Here’s last time:

Green Iguana - 2019-02-24

And now we’re here:

Green Iguana - 2019-03-17

The eye is completely filled in, and I’ve started working on the horizontal strip below his eye, which will also lead to finishing a pattern page. I’ll then go on to deal with the area behind and above the eye. The pink vertical line slightly in front of the iris is the midline of the piece, so once I’m there, this will be three quarters done! Makes me think I’ve got a chance to finish it up by summer!

Green Iguana - 2019-02-03

He’s gotten most of his makeup now – mostly those dreaded colours indistinguishable from white left over:

Short post this time. The eye has gotten a few more colours. I went from here:

Green Iguana - 2019-01-13

To here:

Green Iguana - 2019-02-03

The lines are much stronger and the first shades of green are making an appearance.

Not much progress this time, but very visible nonetheless. I went from here:

Green Iguana - 2018-12-19

to here:

Green Iguana - 2019-01-13

He’s got an eye! These are just the first 3 and a bit darkest colours, but it’s already looking good. Finishing the eye will really bring out his personality.

Last time I still was in the middle of some background:

Green Iguana - 2018-12-02

I finished filling it in for another bit, and then moved the frame, so as requested, you get a view of the full design so far, and then the new position of the frame:

Green Iguana - 2018-12-07 - old position

Green Iguana - 2018-12-07 - full design

Green Iguana - 2018-12-07 - new position

Since then I started to fill in the area from the right:

Green Iguana - 2018-12-19

The dark line that’s appearing is the ridge where his eyebrows would be, if he had a single hair on his body. No idea how much I’ll get done during the holidays, we’ll see that next time!

Wishing you all a good start to 2019, see you in January!

Not that much excitement this time around, but I continued filling in the background and went from this:

Green Iguana - 2018-11-09

to this:

Green Iguana - 2018-12-02

Just a bit more filling in, and then I’ll move the frame so that that empty roundish area to the lower left is in the middle and tackle his eye, which will be back to confetti central!

Progress! Here’s where I was last time:

Green Iguana 2018-10-21

First I filled in some of the missing area in the middle:

Green Iguana - 2018-10-27

Next I moved the frame, so here’s a picture of what he looks like overall at the moment:

Green Iguana - 2018-10-27

And here’s the new position of the frame:

Green Iguana - 2018-10-27

… which I used to fill in the upper right corner:

Green Iguana - 2018-11-09

Yay, background! It really is that much faster than all the confetti that make up Mr. Iguanas skin. As you can see from the full picture, though, there’s still quite a bit of his face missing – the area around his eye as well as most of his mouth. So it’ll be back to confetti soon enough.
