portrait bust – part 4

finally i am able to pick up this carving again… i am still in the roughing out phase, but decided to carve all around, to get a better feeling for the proportions. he is still a little too “big”, as i need some wood to carve the smaller shapes. overall, i am happy how this stage looks, as i can see already some typical features, which hopefully will bring out a resonable portrait… so, here he is, now raised, as he is right now..
