Finished this fella up this morning. The reason the colors on the face look mottled is because I went back after he was varnished and darkened the red. As the wood was sealed the additional color is setting on the surface and did not soak in as it normally does. It actually looks much better than it does in the photo but it's a good reminder of what sealing the wood prior to painting can do. There is a photo of him prior to retouching in the gallery album where you can see the change.
Hope you like him. He stands about 13" tall with the base.
