Now that the sculpting for the belly button and the stomach are now complete I can move on and start adding back the scars to the front of my torso. Keep in mind that I still need to work on sculpting the back and the sides of the torso but the front part is pretty much complete. Some people may advise that you wait until the entire torso is completed before adding the details like the scars but I like to work a little differently. Adding the scars now helps give me an overall feel for the piece and the patterns that I use for the torso will help me come up with the designs I end up deciding to use o the rest of the body.
Once the scars have been added back I will start working on sculpting the back and then add scars to there as well. From there I’ll move onto finishing the arms and hands. I’ll save the textures for the skin details towards the end since I want it to be consistent over the entire sculpture.I’m getting a lot closer to completion now but even with the front of my torso complete I still have a few areas that are in desperate need of some rework. I still need to finish up the face and the skirt has a few issues that I will need to address as well. I will comment more on these areas once I get to them in the future tutorials. For now the design of the front of the torso is complete and you can see what it looks like before the scars are added onto the sculpture again.
