Samantabhadri: Hair

I've been working with the statue's hair this week.
Since she is completely symmetrical in equipoise, her hair is one of the few places where an element of breath and movement can be introduced. 

The first step is to sketch the basic forms that can be used for the front and back of her head.

After settling on one basic form, I add details and decide how to carve it out in 3D.
