Share a little about the materials, processes and techniques used to create this piece. I used charcoal to practise drawing the 'bones' under the face. I tried to focus on overall shapes using the toaster and wedge technique and on light and shade. I can see that I haven't quite got the protrusion of the teeth right. I will keep working on that. Some angles are off too.

Is the piece for sale? No

What advice would you give someone starting this project? Start with a box then make the 'toaster and wedge' as Gary demonstrates. Check your angles and measure!
