MY BENNY BEN (UPDATED)

I've hooked profile memorials of my Rotties Shumba and Panzer as well as Shadow and figured it was time for my boy Ben to have his.  So today I pulled what won't be the last loop pulled on Ben's Memorial because I can see changes need to be made, mostly with the shine on his black hair.
Am so sorry I chose this particular side of the reversible black because it shows up more brown than black.  Won't hook another...yet I might pull out loops and turn the wool over.  

I was really worried about the eye but after 5 tries I might have gotten that part.  Think my biggest problem is the shine on the crown of the head, snout and ear.  Perhaps the ear can be fixed with a more narrow and somewhat darker shade of grey to differentiate the ear from the body.

This morning (Saturday, day after first blog post) I looked at the hooked profile and decided to take a photo with a different camera to find out if that camera captured what I see.  Here is a more accurate picture of what I've hooked and the color.

Here is the photo from which I drew the pattern.
Happy Friday Saturday and happy hooking.
