Came accross this nice quote by James Gurney (not sure if he is the originator of the quote) and thought I'd pass it on as a reminder. Of course, we can substitute "sculpt" for "paint" and the same still holds true:

"Donít paint a figure; Paint a person.
Donít paint a head; Paint an individual.
Be accurate, but see beyond the surface.
Beware of pictures that are correct but lifeless.

The face is the window to the soul.
All of humanityís greatness and frailty can be found in a single pair of eyes"
