Honah Lee Sculpture – Part 1

I started with a sketch, to-scale, of a bust of my dragon character Honah Lee.  I have limited clay for this and my initial drawings were way too big, so I scanned it in photoshop and printed it smaller.  Comparison is below.  It was still too big, so I made one more printout a little bit smaller.  The next step is to use tracing paper to come up with the final design and begin building the armature and bulking it out with foil and paper to try to save even more clay. I think the head “fronds” need to be adjusted in their length, and I need to look at more reference photos to see if I have the ears and other parts in the right places.
