Other priorities this past weekend so not an awful lot of work accomplished on this current piece. Here is today's work . . . and yes, it is taking a bit of time to get to this point. As is my usual approach to a piece and in my usual technical style of layering, getting the skin tones just right is what is really driving this one. Laying in layer upon layer of ever darker grey tones to build up the roundness and shadows and give dimension to the arms etc. is making me take my time on this one. I am feeling pretty good about the piece at this point, so don't want to 'screw it up!'
