Horror Challenge - The Dream Wanderer

Hello everyone,
I finally have the time to get started on this challenge. Due to the small amount of time i can dedicate to this project i had to review my goals but i’m still pretty satisfied with what i came up with :
Fortunately or unfortunately, depending on your point of view, my character only appears in your dreams. He is tasked with lighting up the darkness of your mind therefore shaping all of your wildest nightmare and revealing your biggest fear. He is not here to physically harm you but worst, he knows how to use your own emotions against yourself. Do not underestimate him because of his old age. if you encounter him, your already doom prepare yourself for a descant into madness.

Here is my reference board. i feel like tim burton’s “alice in wonderland” really fit the universe i’m going for.

Quick start for my character face before going into detaille i need to make his outfit in marvelous designer and model some props

he is getting some nice close or is he ?
