The lost pilot

I'm inspired by a WW2 discovery they've made in the Egyptian desert. https://www.cnn.com/2012/05/11/world/british-wwii-plane/index.html So I decided to do a sculpt that would tell the story of a lost pilot in the desert.

I'm inspired by a WW2 discovery they've made in the Egyptian desert. https://www.cnn.com/2012/05/11/world/british-wwii-plane/index.html

So basically, I'm doing a WW2 pilot lost in the desert, helpless. Surrounded by dunes of sand. Once the sculpt is done, I can have fun in subsance painter doing sweat, sticky sand on his skin, dry lips, and maybe even grease stain on him, but for now, I'd love to hear your thoughts about what I've done so far. I've obviously been focusing on anatomy in the last few days. I feel like the right forearm/hand might need a bit more work. He'll be holding his pilot helmet in the right hand, but I need to make his helmet first. I want to get the base forms right before getting into more details ( veins, wrinkles and then skin pore/imperfections). I'll create 1 or 2 extra props, like his harnest with his parachute he used has a shelter from the sun. Maybe a hand pistol on a belt.

Can't wait to hear what you guys think. I really enjoy the idea of telling a story through the images and feel confident enough now to give more emotions to my work.
