Alice Update

Hi there. Last night I had a chance to set aside all the Dracula set design, props, etc and get back to sculpting for a few hours. Ah, therapy!

 The clay is conditioned and applied to the armature so it will be about 3/8" thick.

The major topography of the torso is laid in with a sculpting tool.
These features include establishing an anterior and posterior center line which follows the twist of the body. Markings for the pectoral muscles, the ribcage, and the pelvis.
 The same markings are laid out on the back.
 The armpit and other features are marked.

The muscles are laid out and the final smoothing is done.  A few odds and ends like arms, hands, and feet are started. More to follow as I am able to get back to her. Thanks for looking, have a great day!
