I’m working on the skulls high on the right side, gradually bringing them down to meet the foreground. Getting the balance of the contrast is going to become increasingly important, and I’m concerned to get the scale of the skulls right as they get closer, but simultaneously looking for a swell-like motion in the surface too emphasize the feeling that the angel is wading through a sea of the dead, so having some variety of size is necessary too. It’s tricky to find the balance. I’m going to continue with the work, then edit when I’ve completed the layer.
