Cast Drawing - Finishing Pt. 3

Plugged in another 8 hours on this baby today and got his raised arm and pec pretty much finished, tone smoothed out and transitions going. Some of it is a little too hard-edged yet, but that got fixed and I just didn't have time to photograph the latest version.

I think the rest of it will go faster now that I've gotten used to it, and discovered that smooth tone is much easier with hard charcoal that doesn't fill in as quickly, so over this next week I'm gonna be polishing the whole cast like that shoulder and hopefully in another 10-20 hours this thing'll be dooooone. Having a ton of fun with it still though, this is the fun part, not so much because of the work itself but because this is when it starts actually looking real. Excite!
