Hi there,
For some reason I haven't been able to reply to comments. DA keeps going to a blank page when I hit "reply"!?! I just wanted to thank you for you comments about my sculpture and wish you luck at the 2 cons that you're planning on attending with your artwork!
Since you mentioned the sculpting process, I do have a step-by-step on my website at myimmortals.com if you're interested in seeing how I do it. Again, good luck at the cons, and I love your work as well!
Susan

Thank you.. I just checked out your "How I sculpt" page on your website..  amazing! :)  The amount of details you put in (like the ears) is astonishing..  You have very good eyes for getting the 3D form from just a couple of photos.  Someone told me that all artists should have a go at sculpting to improve how to see the 3D form..  one day i will give it a go..  :)

Thank you!! I don't know if you read one of the suggestions I had on the sculpt page. There is a book called "Drawing on the Right Side of the Brain" by Betty Edwards. (I just looked it up, and apparently it's in its fourth edition!) Well, anyway, people used to ask me all the time how I draw, when I was doing 2D portraits, and I didn't know how to explain it, since I have been doing it naturally since I was a young child. Betty Edwards goes into the aspects of how most people draw what they think they see instead of what they actually see. She had exercises where she would put two intricate objects next to each other, and asked her students to draw the space between the objects! That literally forced the mathematical (right) side of the brain to analyze the angles and spatial relations to get the shape right. AHA, I recognized that method as a description of what I do when I draw and it's probably what you do as well!! So to extend this to sculpting, it's the same method. I CONSTANTLY use space relation line markers when I sculpt, and if you get all those angles and spaces as close as possible, the end result can't help but be a fairly decent likeness. 
Keep up your beautiful work! You are so skilled a portraits. They're all amazing!
