Lunch Crunch - Day 1 - Migraine

This is my first crack at lunch crunch sculpting. It's kind of a cheat because while 90% of the character was finished on the first 1hr lunch. I wanted to go back and finish it the next day. There is a total of approx 2hrs put into this little character study. I had a headache while sculpting him and so that sort of bled through into his expression. I decided to call it "Migraine". Approx 5.5" ta
ll in WED clay.
