Progress on Panel 5: Canto 4 - Faces

Things are starting to develop well on panel 5.  I was a little concerned about the layout of some of the figures in this composition the last few days.  Once I did the rough in I wasn't entirely confident with the proportions of each face.  Once I was able to get all six heads roughed in I decided to take on the face that I had the most issues with.  After three hours last night, I took the photo above of Horace.  Another hour or so working on the eye, beard, lips, and crown and it should look better.  

 Here is the third pass on the face of Ovid.  I still have a little bit to go on the crown, the head and some of the highlights and shadows.  After that I'll start working on his clothing.
