Finally had some time to do some more work. The downside to using plaster is that it makes a heck of a mess when you sand it(and I've got a lot of sanding to do). Definitely not a livingroom activity, dust floats everywhere
I got the rough shaping done, and it's starting to look like something. Next up, I'll add some plaster to the low spots, sand, and repeat until it's just how I want it. I also have more reshaping to do on the back end. It's also taller than it needs to be so I've got room to trim the body to the height I want.
