    Hey Gordy!

    This is looking good as usual! Looks like the opposite of the chubby fella you did last time :)

    Thanks fellas!
    Anders, yes! ;)
    Patrick, i divided the putty while it was still soft around the lips and kept pulling and tucking until the upper lip and teeth were two distinct entities...

    added in the upper eye-lids and beefed up the frontal process of the zygomatic (the bone around the outside of the eye, forward temple) some refining of the levators and blending it in with the inner eye... next up some some nose work

    Hola Gordy!

    Beautiful! A Question though, the eye balls you added underneath the eye lids, about what size are them before you added the lids?

    thanks fellas,
    Anders, its about this big (i'm holding up my finger and thumb with a small gap)

    Glencoe Health 2nd Edition. Mission Hills: Glencoe Inc., 1989: 61. "The eyeball is about 1 inch (2.5 cm) in diameter" 25 mm

    armed with my handy-dandy converter it scales down to (in 54mm|1/32) to 0.79375mm - just a "c" hair under a millimeter..
