That mustache is just gorgeous! And French-knotted to a fair-thee-well. It is pleasing looking. I have finished the top part of his sash and started on the encroaching gobelin on the reds of his uniform. After I get the left side of his uniform stitched I'll be able to start on his beard. I prefer to do the long/short split stitch after its surrounds are stitched so the fiber can overflow onto the nearby stitches and there won't be any gaps.
I have finished his teeth using the slanted gobelin. Notice that those teeth on top slant one way and those on the bottom slant the other.
