First create a vertical section down the
centre back and work horizontally and
parallel to the outline. Again, work on the
surface of the skin and use a guide from
the side to determine the correct length.
Continue with parallel sections up the head
working in the fingers and with tension

Once you've completed the outline, work

Repeat this process on the other side.
