Figure Modeling: The Torso

For the next three weeks I will be working on this sculpture of a female torso. Right now I'm using my female plaster casting as a reference. The main purpose of this is to develop an understanding of what the body does in a contropposto stance, that is where the weight is distributed more on one side of the body than the other. For one thing, the hips aren't level and whatever angle the hips are at, the shoulders are in an opposing angle to balance it out.

Anyway, these are the roughs for now and I'm kind of sick of staring at them:
