I'm attempting to be subtle - never my strong suit - and making some balanced characters. Now, my monsters are becoming too human and my heroes are becoming too monstrous. The bad guys have honour and don't blame the son of a traitor for his betrayal. Things are gonna change in the editing stage!
My story is topical: I wanted the villains of my story to connected to a mafia so I Googled Mafia, Ontario and learned of the " ‘Ndrangheta". The villains, or the monsters, as described above, are part of a 'ndrina based in Vaughan. Now, I've learned that the ‘Ndrangheta in Italy is trying to kill the Pope. Man, that's cooler than anything happening in my story!
I think you see my mustache in this picture. Well, the picture's terrible but perhaps you can see a few wisps of hair.
Picked up my gouges today for the first time in too long. Mostly, I reacquainted myself with the cheetah and scraped a little off here and there. I found some pictures online of cheetah paws but didn't bring them with me to work on detail. Next time.
