Updated: Huggo the Hippo
Here is the final Huggo painting (pending any minor tweaks) as his eyes look a little too intense. While painting I've fallen in love with the idea of giving him two tone irises. My biggest challenge in this revision was to make him more crisp and readable as well as to make the lighting feel more real and make more sense.
