more progress on the skull..
i re-sized/shaped the head, then began building up the facial structure a touch on the nose and brow. also added an eye socket to one side of the head as you can see from the photo below. the eyeball i have in there is able to rotate freely within the socket [which is quite cool!].
last night i ordered a couple of webcams. my hope is that i can dismantle one of them and re-house it within an eyeball – so this thing could be watching you as you look at it!
the next stage was to carve a chunk out of the cranium, to create a quarter-spherical opening. i then constructed the elliptical brain cavity inside the skull. i hadn’t realised how much room there is inside one of these things!
as you can see from the next photo, my estimations of the required foetus size were way off the mark… you could fit triplets in there! i could pad out the space with the ol’ grey matter, but i think the only reasonable course of action is to make a bigger baby.
