Urge to Sculpt: Part 4 Shadows & Blending here are the spoils of last evenings thithering about.
Old Nut Grassbottom blooms!
(those his cheeks are pinkish-which doesn't show like that in the photo)

It appears that I am lacking in the necessary skills required to bring features to life.
I'll have to read some more and see if I can get some insight.
The face appears flat to me, and I'm unable to properly blend the cheeks.
A bit of sandpapering does give it a weathered effect, which I like.
I'm so happy with the sculpting though that I'll keep working at it.
I an completely enjoying my new hobby.

Purchased a block of air dry clay yesterday so perhaps a smoother surface will be different to work with.

Hat and hair finished.  I have *no* problems with hats!  lol

Think I will do heads only until winter.  I'm anxious to play with and refine my sculpting and painting skills.

Have a creative day!
