I cannot count the amount of times I've started over to try and keep things symmetrical. I've recently had a downturn in health and my eyesight has been damaged; it's seems to be effecting my sculpture work. I've needed to use calipers a lot more than I used to but I still love to create so I don't mind the adjustment
Nice video indeed; it's always interesting to see an artist working. The face has very soft and realistic features. I also like the broken baby face on your blog. Kamia says "Asymmetry creates beauty" of course, but I think it has its limits...just my opinion. I've had a look at your blog and saw you had problems with your ideas being stolen by others...and your decision to post pictures only when the piece is finished, but your blog has a copyright so are your photos and concepts not protected already?

Unfortunately you can't copyright an idea unless you purchase a patent which is the problem I'm running into. When it comes to artworks, laywers are only interested in breaches on completed pieces, not concepts or works in progress. It's a shame because sharing works in progress and putting ideas out there is a lot of fun and an easy way to get important feedback.
Besides it's very difficult to trace the origin of an idea; how is it possible to determine who thought of something first? There are so many artists out there, throughout time also. Many ideas and concepts have been used, copied, improved...maybe it's inevitable with art...I don't know. A lot of people like to see work in progress, but I think you have a point when you decide to show completed pieces first and later the wip. As Kamia said, keep up the good work. It's really promising.
I love it when artists share their thoughts and exploration on their blogs. Marina of Enchanted Doll is an excellent example, her techniques were always openly shared and it certainly didnt hold back her artistry. I oscillate, at times sharing at times keeping a trade secret.
