The Droop Makes One Look Old

The eyes do require some adjustment, but I'm getting there

Frank's Animation Render-in-progress

After a weekend of frustration and hair-pulling (Sir P. does not have a moustache anymore) because the textures on Frank's face kept disappearing...I used a different Blinn and the textures stuck. How simple..
