Bird head is finished!

Here's an update on my latest bird sculpture. The part you see is about 32" tall. There's a base at the bottom, but you can't see it under all that plastic.

Now I need to refine the texture on the body and start on the base, and still need to sculpt the bird that will sit on the base looking up at her. Sounds like a lot, I know, but at least I'm getting there!
