Sorry I've been away so long...it's been a busy couple of weeks and unfortunately I haven't had as much time to dedicate to this project as I would like. But, thankfully, it was about 60 degrees here and sunny, so it seemed the perfect opportunity to take pictures and get cracking!
I combined these two pictures together to get the composition/head angle that I wanted:
And this is what I have so far! I still have a lot of work to do, but i'm really liking how it's turning out!
