Green cup and apple

6x6 oil on hardboard

Made a little boo boo with the right side of the cup. Dang it. It seemed hard to make this one lay down. Not sure what to do to make it proper.

Cast 2

Different angle but it looks a bit wonky. Only wanted to work on some of the face, not the whole. Makes your brain tired.

Cast 1

8x10 oil on hardboard

Working on planes of the head.  There were more planes than i had made shades for, so I'll have to think a little next time. I'll just move the lighting around to get a new view. It takes a long time to draw all those planes and get them close to correct.
