(WIP 1) Life No man's land, Battle of Kursk 1943

This bust portrays a battle weary Russian infantryman prior to the Battle of Kursk.

I am trying to render the subject the 1000 yard stare where he's staring blankly while holding his cross in prayer (arm not attached)

A glaze of sap green + raw sienna was used to tone down the underlying reds to suggest a sickly solider pushed to the brink of exhaustion.
