Final head ready to mould

I have finally finished the head. For the detail, I made some texture effects with a paintbrush creating random lines a bit like small hairs. For the face, I have made a texture stamp out of silicone, from the skin of an orange as shown below. When I press on his face with this stamp, it gives it an effect similar to pores on skin. Usually found on facial skin, though, some people have them with more predominance than others. DSCF000po4.jpg

Below are two shots of the finished head. Ill probably spend another few minutes cleaning it up, prior to do the mould. But that's it! It's finally done and I am happy with the way it looks!

Lets not forget that I have been developing this head's design as well as all the other parts of the creature's body, for over 6 months. And yes I could have finished this model a long time ago, but I tried not to. I like the whole design process, the fact that I don't know how it's going to look like, until it's done! Although, any work that I do to it, day by day, leads to progress. And that is usually good news, because the more I work, the better it will look!

If we were given more time to work on this project, I would certainly not want to be finished by now, I would carry on developing its overall design, until the last few days before the dead line...

But time has come, and even though the dead line is for next monday and I still have a lot to do! I don't feel that I am late in any way. I do feel though, that I took advantage of the time I had to develop the way the 'tourist' will look. At this stage, some luck would be handy though, I must be honest!
