change of face

See and see again the new head of the doll and I could not be satisfied. There is a problem of proportion and that tormented me so today I decided to made ​​a big change, I choose a bit more mature features and expanded everything. The new sculpture is still in its early stages but I'm much more confident now. To get the best we must have the courage to disrupt our work and never being content with the first result. If you do not like something you have to change it.
