Above is the finished sculpt the jaw actually broke and fell down just like that and I actually thought it looked pretty cool with the tongue and all so i kept it.
Working with NSP Chavant Medium Oil based clay bout 2 hours in have the majority of the top skull blocked in and gonna start working on shaping the head and bottom jaw. Sculpting seems to be very meditative for me I can get in the zone very quickly and stay there for hours on end very enjoyable.
UPDATE: Just got the top part of the jaw and teeth in place and refined the eye sockets a bit.
I’m gonna finish the skull out and then start adding the muscle portion of the face since this is my first head sculpt I really want to learn all the bones in the face as well as where all the muscles are, it will be a great teaching tool starting from the ground up.
UPDATE: Finished the jaw and lower teeth gonna start adding on the muscle.
UPDATE: Added a tongue and eyes and hair.

I think we should all live life slower and more appreciative, enjoying every moment for exactly what it is and nothing more.
Here are 12 ways you can live a simpler more joyful life. I will be practicing all of the below as much as possible.
I climbed 21,000 ft of elevation going up and down about 9 times on my bike tour and barely made camp as the night fell and in the process twisted my ankle pretty bad rendering me quite useless. I biked/walked another 15 miles to find a phone that actually worked and was able to get a hold of my Paps to pick me up because their was very little chance I would make it any farther being injured. This was my first attempt but not my last I will be readjusting my gear making it as light as possible and most likely change from a bike tour to a hiking expedition as the solitude and quiet I was looking for was quite difficult to find with all the passing cars every 5-10 mins. I think hiking the trail might offer me a little more tranquility and natural surroundings. It was a great experience and I’m learning what to do to make my adventure more comfortable and enjoyable and hauling 150lbs of gear is not the ticket . I will be recovering for a week or so as my body feels like I was beating with a bunch of bats. Next time I will be doing allot more conditioning before I head out. I will be looking at doing possibly a couple sections of the Pacific Coast Trail. All the things I wanted to do meditating, creating camp, enjoying my surroundings were quite difficult to do in such pain and anguish as all I could focus on was how bad my body felt and barely being able to walk. I learned some great lessons and will use them in my next journey. “A man should never be ashamed to own he has been in the wrong, which is but saying… that he is wiser today than he was yesterday.” ~Alexander Pope
