So I took a break from the arms, and worked on:
- face -- the first phase of the left half of the face is essentially done, and it looks AWESOME!
- "knees" -- if you recall, I removed the legs at the knees, and created a socket in which to attach the displaced legs. The exposed "knee" area was used to lock the position of the lower legs by building out the breeches and tucking them into the boots.
- boots -- further reduction and refinement.
- doublet -- starting build-out of the represented layers.
