Stoic - Part 3

My nerves are engaging in a great disagreement today. Ever since my surgery a week-and-a-half ago, the back of my right arm and some other parts have been numb. Well, I think progress is being made because this afternoon the back of my arm started itching. Yup, those nerves were crying out, "Scratch us now!" So, as I was super excited to be receiving any message at all from that vicinity, I obliged. Thing is, the "scratch me" nerves hadn't cleared the request with the "touch us and you'll be sorry" nerves. I'm a quick study so following a brief episode of electric knife jolts I decided that the "scratch me" nerves warranted ignoring...at least for now. I'm happy for progress none-the-less.

I finished "Stoic" today. I'm so sad that I don't have the original sculpture to credit. I went looking for it and was unable to find it. I must do better next time. Here's the finished piece and below are the last few stages.


I added some yellow highlights.

I added more blue to the body and headpiece.

I darkened some of the shadowed areas
and added lines for the arms.

I darkened the background. I thought
the background needed to be a tad "dirty".
