The Ninth part to "How to Sculpt a Face" lets us really develop and polish the dolls overall look.
STEP 33: Blend everything in and check over the doll's face. Anything you can see that you don't like? Looking at the profile of the face I can see that I still don't like the way her brow is looking. I'm happy with the general shape of the head now though.
STEP 34: I've added thin layers of clay over top of the areas I wish to build out. Here I am adding a bit to her brow line and her right cheek. Don't be scared to go over and change things you don't like. Try to keep your patience and work at it until you're happy. You will progress in your skills in leaps and bounds if you do this step.
If you keep doing the same mistakes without fixing it up, your skills will stagnate. Try to get it as accurate as your skills will allow. Push the bar.
STEP 35: I'm going in and blending everything I've added and defining the bone ridges and details again. She is starting to look how I envisioned her. I'm still not happy with the eyes though. I need to fill the eyes out to give me a smoother plane to paint the eyeballs onto.
I keep fiddling away....
STEP 36: I'm happier with her appearance now. She's smoothed out, her eyes are how I wanted them and her brow looks like what I was trying to achieve. I hit the max of what my abilities would allow that day- I tried my best- and I find her visually pleasing.
I think we're ready to move on.
