Softening the golden tip of his now by adding light washes to make the transformation much more gradual really smoothes out his snout. His nose is washed in red tone then darkened around those fabulous gleaming wet nose dots along the top edge. I love the way the light catches that texture there. His tongue is pinkified more and his lower lip darkened. His eyes are detailed.
