Pyle's Pirate; The Sculpey Sketch

Though I've never done this for a figure I find a Sculpey sketch of a bust to be a big help in it's development. The sketch is a nice warm up and helps to establish the character of the piece. It also helps to identify those areas that might be more difficult than others.

Here are a the first views of the sketch. I also added a piece of wire to represent one of the hoop earrings he will be wearing.

Nicely done so far Gary.

John, Thanks, I appreiciate it. SO FAR is an understatement. The big hurdle for me is not the work, but sticking to it. I'd rather work on something 10-15 minutes every other day than do nothing for weeks or more at a time. Getting these smaller projects done will just make way for the larger ones that will require a lot more effort. Thanks again. ~Gary
