I think this is very well made! You should definately sculp some more. Have you ever consideret making more than the head? Adding the body?

Thank you. as far as for the body, I would need to get some wire armatures, and more practice.

:D well I did use some tools as well. but yeah, it wasn't that difficult to be honest just took time and patience.  I still have a lot of room for improvement though, I wouldn't say that I have skill, you on the other hand have quite a bit of skill, especially when it comes to calligraphy. 

thank you. :D

pretty good! have you tried working with polymer clay? you can use Turpenoid or lighter fluid on polymer to smooth everything over once you're done sculpting to get a really clean look with a face and hair. :)

no problem! I find it essential on a finished figure to remove the finger prints and other imperfections - but only on a finished one ;)

Overall a great piece of work. My main critique on this one is the neck, it is too thin. Also there needs to be a little bit of polishing over little divets (most likely made by your nails) as well as a general sanding to smooth out the piece.

thank you, very much. and you know your right about the divits I've been trying to get rid of those and by the time I think I'm done, I find that MORE HAVE TAKEN THEIR PLACE.  though I will still continue trying.  I'm not quite sure how to sand it but I will think of something, I might retake some better photos after I do so. thanks for the tips.

I know how that is, it gets really frustrating. They are generally caused by fingernails so what I generally do to help fix it, is I cut my pointer fingernail as short as I can without hurting myself, then I focus on only using the pad of my finger. It takes a lot of time but is worth the effort.

thank you for the tips I'v done my best to smoothe it out as much as I could, I will be making a new composition photo in the near future, thanks so much for the tips. I will be sure to apply them to my future pieces as well.

Yeah, it is the hardest part about working with clay.
