I FINALLY finished the foliage on my GreenShade piece and so now I can begin work on the central character. She's a funky little lady- very much a Gulf Island Hippie Chick. I determined her proportions in context with the background by placing tracing paper on the piece and doing a very rough sketch on the paper. The next step will be to build the polymer clay body using the sketch as a pattern. Yes, those are my toes at the bottom of the photo.
