ok, here’s a little something I knocked up today. I’ve been meaning to do it for ages, anyway, a little rough, but here it is,,,easy block out
Make a cut back to reveal the chin and shoulders…
Next cut around the face to create the hairline
Then mark out the nose line and eye lines
Next scrape back the wood to create the eye sockets
I use the radius of the bar to deepen the eyes
I then form the line between the lips
Next create the bottom lip
I use the tip of the bar to scrape back the wood
Eyes now… top eyelid first
Then bottom lid
Then the line below the eyes..
A little more work on the chin
The nose I think is a little flat, but I’m sure you get the idea…
Next I deepen the temples and define the hairline
Then get those lips right!
A touch of the burner to emphasize the shadows and a sprinkling of the sand-o-flex to soften the edges…
I hope this helps someone out there!
