Master Class - Lou Marinaro - Day 2

So after Day 2 of the Master Class by Lou Marinaro, I spent a little longer with the sculpture I was working on and really like the results.

My first impression after this experience was learning how difficult it is photographing sculptures. The strength and quality of the light effect the sculpture in really different ways. I have a new appreciation for how difficult a job this is. I mean, take the pair of photographs below as an example.

I really am not sure which one is objectively better. This becomes all the more complicated once I run the photograph through Photoshop. 

The other pictures are other views of the sculpture before I alter it to make a painting from it. I am thinking of adding another half armature to this sculpture. I am excited to get moving further on the project.

the more abstract it becomes, and, ironically, the more real."
