The above images are the last of a series of hyper realistic busts. #8 is a reconstruction over a real human skull and like the others I followed the contours and the anatomy of each cranium to produce all the different faces. Unlike a forensic reconstruction,this series of busts will be part of an contemporary art installation.
Getting back to the title "changes and adjustments" refers to the modelling. In the earlier version of #8 she was very lean looking which after several months of not working on her I noticed that her neck, shoulders and lower jaw were not the right proportion. After making the necessary changes,the sculpture is in the process of going through the final stages of contouring  and so the next post will be about the beginning stage of applying the skin texture. I'm looking forward to it.
I'll be back soon. Cheers.
