Above shows 3 images of the stitched cell's progression to date - at the top is when it started - the 2nd image is just before it had it chiffon layer added - the 3rd image is to date. You can see how it is (slowly!!) getting less defined but at the same time becoming more 'integrated'.
I'm quite pleased on its progress but it's much slower than originally planned ... although I'm only working on it intermittently when I have 'dedicated personal studio time'. I'm unsure if the original 'colour-play' changes will be apparent at the end but will have to wait & see.
