In other news, it looks as though I'm going to need to drop $Texas on another pallet of clay. I'm down to my last 3 billets and I'm nowhere near the volume I'll need to finish the back assembly. I just have to keep telling myself that this is an investment in a reusable resource. Woof.
Day 4 - The collar and "neck brace" begin to take shape. I'm trying to take a Top-Down approach from here and finalize details up top while blocking out shapes and structures below.
Day 5 - Looks like Carlos lost his mustache. Eesh, I guess I should rename him Adolf. Certainly is white enough. The shoulder straps are reworked for the ump-teenth time. A couple test details are sculpted into the chest. The abs are bulked up and worked slightly.
Day 6 - Focus shifts to the abdominals. Symmetry still needs work as the basic plates are laid out under the Pecs. The collar is finely detailed and nearly completed.
