Hyper Realistic Reconstructed Sculpture #6 Part 5

The focus of this past week was to get the neck and shoulders of #6 "caught up" to the head.  When I begin a sculpture, the main strategy is to model all aspects of the sculpture simultaneously. The reason of course is make sure that the sculpture grows gradually and remains in balance. That's why I was a bit concerned last week that the head was too far advanced in its development while the rest of the sculpture remained neglected. This can lead to proportion problems with various parts of the model.

The next stage is to return to the head and try to fill out the face and then return to the neck and shoulders for any further readjustments. In an earlier post, I had mentioned about doing two versions of this sculpture,one ecorche version and one complete. I'm still interested in this idea but I feel that its best to move on and complete this model and return to the other idea later. We'll see what happens.
In the meantime,I have a special post coming.  Watch for it later this week.
Take care.
