Creating a Modeling Clay Bust

I created this small portrait of Joseph Smith the other day with the intentions of continuing on to create a full bust to be able to work from. However, I got to this point and began to realize that many of his features were over pronounced because of the small scale that I was working with. So, even though it resembles Joseph Smith, it won't quite do the trick when it comes to using the bust as reference for my painting. I have decided to throw this one back into the heap of clay and start over - larger this time. At least I got a little practice and a little better acquainted with his features!
