Making some headway...
I also spent some time on the mouth ensuring the corners of curve back into the face and creating a curl from the chin up into the lip. I continued my shaping down to the neck and also started adding detail to the mustache. It should be noted that the mustache is not finished as I will be adding some breaks to both the upper side of the mustache where it extends from the face and also some larger breaks along the bottom edge. Once the breaks are cut in I will continue shaping with progressively smaller #11 (veiner) and #9 gouges until the desired level of detail is desired.
All-in-all the piece needs several more hours of work and I'll keep you posted on my progress.
Enjoy the day (there may have been a couple of blizzards in DC but it ain't that bad up here in the snow belt !!)
