The Belt of the Day - So To Speak

I started out the day, feeling kinda down, it happens. Artists live so much on an edge of a sword. Anything can make them fall into a mood. Best way to pull yourself out of that is just live and keep working.
I fleshed in the the right fore arm first today. Then I worked out a few kinks on the face. Then I started his belt. Making little balls of clay to act as brass tacks on it. This is going to take a lot of time, this kind of small detail.
Oh, I feel great tonight.

Final photographs

Photos below show the belt as I start adding little balls of clay to act as brass tacks.
