I believe this is week 5 for me on this pose.  I have been neglecting to post in progress pictures on this one.   Two more weeks with the model to finish it up.

It has really just been in the last couple of weeks that this one has started to come together.  This is a return to oil-based clay after a lengthy foray working with hard wax.  I’m still using hard wax, but I wanted to use something I could work faster on and in a looser style.

I started this pose with my usual drawings to better understand the pose and figure out proportions.
