More work on the torso!
I was pretty happy with it at this stage, but unfortunately It went a bit south after I took this photo + my last day of work on it 😜
I think certain parts of the portrait became more accurate after the work I did, but I killed some of the attitude/expression. I'm Learning when to to stop "fixing", and let the good things be. I find this can be difficult to recognize mid-process, since so much of a sculptor's work requires being constructively self-critical. Hoping to get it back to this point! All I have was a bad iPhone photo of it at this point, so...☝️
