This course has been great fun, and I’m sad that it’s over.

However, Dev said that he’ll hold another course later in the year when he has some free time, so between now and then, I’m going to buy some cheap clay, and try to work out how I’m going to make those concrete heads.

I’ll need a lot of practice forming facial features – it’s one thing drawing a face, but another thing entirely doing in in 3-D!
