Hyper Realistic Reconstructed Sculpture #2 Final

Hopefully, this is the last post about sculpting this particular clay model.  YW as I had mentioned in a previous posting was supposedly completed back in 2010.  But my usual practice is to set aside models for a time so that I can have a period to reflect and perhaps be a little more objective about what has been done.
This year, I decided to make some adjustments,making parts of the face fuller, widening the shoulders and making numerous adjustments to the skin texture.

The last two images, I tried to bring out the skin texture more fully by increasing the contrast in the photo.
I found it more difficult to photograph this sculpture because of the subtlety of the skin texture which on young individuals tends to be soft and not easy to read. Another aspect of this entire project that isn't mentioned is that each sculpture in this series has a unique skin texture which isn't too surprising when depicting human beings of different ages and gender.
Meanwhile, the end of the month is fast approaching and the push is on to complete a number of projects by month's end.
I'll be back again next week.  Till then have a great weekend.
