On pieces like this, I work the hardest on the face and head. I try to capture the gesture with the body, but don't fret about super realism. I want this to look like it was made with my hands, and not out of some ceramic mold. Its and original and should look that way.....like an Osterberg!
I have already paper mached over these changes, and the next step is the glue/cloth mache layer which is where the real facial expressiveness is achieved.

You know if I only had a bigger studio, I could get so much more "stuff" out! More tomorrow.

I try to get as close as I can with the tape ups, but never worry about being exact as it is pretty hard to do with the squishy crunched up newspaper. After a layer of paper mache, the head will be solid and I can fine tune it by adding or subtracting as needed.
I am going to try and be more diligent posting so you can see the step by step progress of this (and other) projects.
