3 hours later....

I gave the baby some poutier lips and more of a button nose. That's better. I also did its ears, and those take a while. Sculpting is slow going, but the results fascinate me. Maybe I'll get to the legs tomorrow, but one of the arms is giving me some grief, and those hands will take a while to detail, but it sure is fun.

Sculpting is a lot like drawing in that you "rough-in" the body first. You go for basic shapes and the general idea, then move on to detailing. At this point, only the head is detailed, and one arm more completed than the other. If you detail everything as you go, you may find out the shapes are all wrong, and waste hours of work. Isn't that a cute little pose?
