*nk* <--- sound of brain waking up.

That's a very cool image. I like that. How big is it? Do you have any notes on technique?

It's 22" x 24" :) I do the "wet on wet" technique as much as possible so that I wouldn't have to worry about the "fat over lean" golden rule. (I'm not fond of rules haha) Thank you! :)

The effect is very smooth and has lovely plasticity. Imagining it at full size helps me to think about the methods, so thanks.

I love the contrast between the semi-realistic face and then all the artificial cogs. It's beautiful.
I didn't notice the windup key in her back at first. :love:
