A "carving" experiment

After an unexpected deployment of the notion of carving with the torch on the head of Perseus on the Medusa sculpture, I decided to execute an aside. A small, simply gestured, piece of figuration that explores the possibilities of the ace-torche's gouging, slicing, and digging.

RWJR is the resident authority in this area - and since I have said more than once that I wanted to be HIM when I grew up...here we go. My carving efforts thus far - infantile and clumsy (but those parts of my character have usually worked in my favor by the addition of a fierce obliviousness).

Its not done yet, but close. It is not so much about any "refining" - simply some "meat" on and off in a few more places; and perhaps a shortening of the torso (it takes ten seconds to cut right through and accomplish MAJOR proportional alterations).
