Female Bust

My first time making a life size bust of a woman. I was inspired by Phillipe Faraut and if you don't know him you should because he's sick....

Heres a working shot taken by Kassie Weiner, who was working on the bust behind mine. Thanks Kassie!

Progress shots.
Simple armature, newspaper and tape.

Humanoid formed clayhead.
Marked off some guidelines for facial landmarks.
Fleshing out..

More work.

Lips, nose, cheek, orbital sockets... Human osteology background helps a lot for this.. Thanks Professor Gustav!

Total Working time... 5 - 6 hours? Time flies when you're having fun.
