Fussing around today with the moustache, needed to lower the left side a bit so that the hairs are visible in front of the lip. Added lots of detail (tiny bits of color) to the beard as well as the skin that is just below the beard. I actually put skin color on and then drag it back into the edge of the beard.
Next, I somehow lost the top of the left ear a while back. So I repainted it and added more light to the lobe and edges. Decided the edges were too harsh, so took a small brush and blended them into the background.....creating a soft edge.
