Now that the rough layout work is done, I like to sculpt the faces next to get the proportion of one figure to the other correct and so I have the character of the sculpture established. The character is important because it will dictate the adjustments I make to the poses as they progress. I find it is helpful to have the finished size of the head before I build the armature.
Final skin texture for an old face is done by first adding crisscrossing fine lines over the entire surface of the finished face. These cross in a diamond pattern just like your own skin. Sorry, these are hard to see on this image.
The ears are roughed in before attaching to the head.
Teeth are added using a 1:1 mix of white and translucent polymer clays.
We will sculpt the child's head next time.
Have a great day!
