I had some pictures, but I can't upload them to the crappy old cafe computer i'm on.
I've got an animatable mouth now (used armature wire on the jaw). Also cut out the eye holes. Looks allright. Not fantastic, but allright. I'm expecting the head to look alot better when I paint it. I've been doind research on how it's done; think i'm going to try something different. I'm going to try either pastels (the powdery kind) or actual make up. Should be fun buying that. Then i'm going to spray it with drawing fixative. Should work good.
I'm almost done fiddling around with this head. After that, things should get alot easier - no more really tough technical problems. I'm feeling like this stage is the top of the roller coaster; after I get past this hard part, things should happen really fast. Hopefully.
