Working on my Charlie Chaplin Commission

It's always so intimidating to try to capture a known personality and this one so classic. I sculpted the head with Living Doll. I love this clay!! However it was so difficult to tell if I had him down or not without colour. So I baked it and started colouring.
 A wash  of Raw Umber and then in with the eyes and a little blushing and classic black coal around the eyes. I still haven't added the moustache, just a bit of coal to see if it would come to life as Charlie or not. No lowlights yet in the eyes either but I think I got it.
Once I costume and add the hair and hat it'll look like Charlie I think.
