Better late than never

Another work in progress is finally finished.  Nikolai has caused me more than a few headaches and I have not always been keen to finish him off.

But time has made the heart grow fond and I have come to view his personality with affection.


He is not modeled on a real owl but rather on a matroschka doll.  Not only that he has been through several colour schemes before finally becoming the stylized and colourful bird you see now.
