The Lion - Prepwork II: The Face/Head

With the leftover putty used to fill-in the underside of the torso and complete the basic form of the cuirass, I began to work on the face.

The first thing to be done is remove the superfluous elements of the Imperial helmet: namely the neck and ear guards. You don't have to be particularly "careful" as the helmeted portion of the head will not be visible on the finished piece. That being said, dry fit the lion cowl often to make sure there are no surprises later on. . .     

I do not know to what extent the face will be visible/exposed. The "new" helmet has a very cool bevor that I would like to include; however, I don't know if it is the right call given the scale, etc. Currently I am leaning to leaving the face exposed. . .

The preliminary enhancements to the stock face are filling-in the attachments points for the cheek-pieces, and enhancing the brow and cheekbones--DONE! This will probably be followed by enhancing the upper and lower lip/chin DONE! and adding the facial hair.

More to follow!
