Athena | Head Work.

During working on the shadows and highlights of the character I detoured on to working on the head and sculpting the look of the character. The following was my attempts to create the head of the character.

Fig 1 |  Molding Head

Fig 2 | Working Out Perspective

Fig 3 | Attempt 1 - Working Out Highlights and Shadows

Fig 4 | Attempt 2 | Working Out Curvature Of The Face

With attempt 2 I found that the eyes where too small and didn't work with the  head. I therefore progressed by making bigger eyes.

Fig 4| Getting somewhere - Begin to understand the eyes along with the highlights and shadows. Also  start development on the Nose.

Fig 5 | Again attempt to add curvature to the head, Defining Nose and Eyes Further.

Fig 7 | Looking For More Detail Around The Eyes. More Definition to Nose.

Fig 8 |  More Definition On The Eyes, Mouth, and Nose

Fig 9 | More Development On To The Nose, Mouth and Highlights

Fig 10 | Working Out Highlights and Shadows Once Again

Fig 11 | Attempance at Highlighs and Shadows. (Eyes Tested)

Fig 15 | Beginning To Develop Hairs

I was pleased with the head but the issue around the cheeks where still lingering. After spending to much time on the head I realised it was compromising my efforts to complete the project and therefore I moved on reluctantly.
