Shivas dance of destruction

Shivas skin is painted and the figure is blocked in in the round.... but now needs a head.
You can see the charcoal o the black gesso of where the head needs to be placed. The rear hand still needs to be painted in as well.
 Here is  a closer show to show the shading details added to the figure.
I painted in the rear arm.

 Here is a detail of the hand.
This is the first placement of the head and shape but it didn't look right so I had to do it over again.
 I blocked in the major planes of the head and face, this time softening the edges and pointing the chin a bit more.
I added a bit more shadow depth and blocked in the eyes.
I then did a little work on the hair and added in more stars into the cosmos.
