I've been focusing in on the portraits, hands, feet, and the robe the last few weeks. It is currently within a few days of being done!!Below is what has been going on behind the scenes sculpting St. Anthony & Child.
(St Anthony & Child have wet rags on their heads to keep them cool in the summer heat)

Working on the portrait of St. Anthony. I'm really concentrating since I have limited time with my model.
(St. Anthony's head is designed to come off so he can come out of my studio. The armature is visible here in his neck but not for long.)
I am working on the Child's portrait. My little model Owen (of 2 yrs) is sitting in a chair near by for a quick view of his eyes. He has grown a lot in the last few months into less a baby and more little boy, so I have to use old measurements, pictures to go for what I want. His spirit of wonderment and sweet curiosity remains the same. He watches 'milo & Otis', "Land Before Time', and his parents read him books to keep him seated or within view of my quick sculpting hand!!
