Anyway, here are a couple of progress pictures.
The paper mache base skull with a cardboard tube neck, also mached.
After applying some of the facial features.
While the eye sockets look really large and wide here, they don't seem so big in person. And actually, I'll be adding more clay to the face to create a more saggy skin look and to achieve heavy-bagged eyes. Had to stop here, though, because the wife wanted to have a dinner-and-a-movie night with me. Damn, woman! You're interfering in the creation of art!
