Giacometti – sculpting styles

After experimenting with both smooth and uneven styles of sculpting and seeing how they both looked in digital form I have decided to experiment more with the style of  sculptures I am making.

I want to look at a few artists who abstract the human face in different ways and achieve different affects.

Giacometti is a sort of obvious starting point as his style feels like a more textured and elongated version of my Pulled face. I would be interested in making work with more texture, like his, as I was really impressed with how the more textured work (pulled face) looked in the 3D digital format.
