This was my second cast in charcoal, at some point the teachers thought I
should trash it and start over because I was struggling too much with the drawing.
Now it's probably my favourite. It's Beethoven's death mask. Spooky.

The finished version has a smoother gradient in BG, I promise.
An early stage of a cast sculptor Max Patte made for some movie,
maybe Narnia I don't know. It's really cool though.
This stage is the most critical, if you get this right the rendering
is actually quite easy.
