Over There

Yesterday I worked on a sculpture of a WWI Marine, using some of the reference photos I'd taken of Marines in period dress on Tuesday.
I had a 1/4-size figure of a 1912 Marine already in process, and I decided to move him forward six years and equip him for France, 1918.  He's still a bit 'wooden' in the way the wrinkles and posture go, but he's developing nicely. Today I will begin crafting his pack, gas mask and all the other cartridge belt gear.
