Slice and Count

Sneak peek on Slice and Count. Finished Slice last night and painted him like a white lumina pumpkin instead of a traditional orange pumpkin. Slice is shown on his base in the first photograph holding on to Count's leash to make sure he doesn't fly away and get lost. Unlike most bats, Count has a terrible sense of direction.

A closer view of Count shows his vampire fangs and orange eyes. This view also shows you the copper color of Slice's eyes and the shadowing around them, as well as his sun kissed cheeks and almost perfect smile.

Slice is wearing a deep orange vest with white and black polka dots, with a little striped sweater, shirt and tie his mother picked out for him to wear to the carnival. He is also wearing white and black striped stockings. This view shows how the wire (Count's leash) appears to be held by Slice's little fingers.

Side views of Slice.

Look at that face!!!! Alas, it wasn't the lack of a dental plan that caused Slice to lose this tooth, but a wild pitch thrown by his brother, Sliver.

I need to get back to painting on Gourdon, the oldest of the three "Lumina" brothers. Hope you enjoyed the peek!!!
