This is a 5x7 board. I've used only the scalpel blade and have spent about 5 hours on this so far. This is a detail from a bust of Karl Friedrich Schinkel, a prominent architect in Germany in the 1800's. I liked this image because he's a handsome fellow. :)
Like skin, doing smooth marble in very slow going...

Slow going, but you're making great progress. He's going to be wonderful!

Wow, you could leave it just like this and it would be outstanding.....

Thanks everyone, for looking in and for your comments. I have made some progress on this piece. Here is an update. Photo was taken and adjusted with cell phone. So it is not of the best quality. It looks ok on my phone, but probably horrible on a large monitor. My apologies!
I will probably not post again until it is completed.

Well done and at this stage quite powerful.

Thank you all for looking in and for the wonderful feedback. Doing smooth surfaces is surely time consuming! Here is an update from my phone's camera.http://www.wetcanvas.com/Community/images/23-Sep-2014/218845-2014-09-23_11.37.28.jpg
