Making Ella look old was giving me a lot of trouble. Her jet black fur and kitten-like appearance made it very difficult to age her. After consulting Justin (who told me that Ella was a particularly hard nut to crack), we finally got our heads around making her look like an old lady.
Subtle changes, like a bit of a double chin. sleepy eyes, a rounder belly and making her shorter were key in making Ella look old.
What do you think?
