I've started working on the face, shown above. As I mentioned in my last post, I'm working from a reference photograph for this, but I will make adjustments to account for skin tones and other details that the camera did not capture. So far this piece has a very cold feel to it, and I'm trying to keep it from looking too dismal. The piece will be titled "Solitude", and I want it to be a little stark while somewhat peaceful at the same time. By the way, I'm using UART 800 grit, and the face is about the size of my palm (I'll try to post a photo showing the relative size later).
