    10 pieces make up Luke's head, 4 in the neck, the face, a core block, and 4 pieces for the hair...

    looks good as it is, but I think I'm gonna make his hair "pop" by shading and highlights.

    Coming out great. The face is kind of "greasy" looking, maybe a layer of a semi flat clear to make it more realistic?

    I will be flat coating the face, and glossing the eyes, to give them that "wet" look.
