    ShastaDonegan Lets start with ridiculous and move backwards.

    Very, very nice Hoytman. However I think you need a few more pairs of boots ;)

    Mossyback, are you going to post a completed picture? I can't wait.
    Daniel, when I've done animals like that, I have a difficult time getting the head to stretch over the chin and onto the form. Did you have any trouble with that? It looks like it would be pretty tight.

    That is probably my all time favorite mount done by you and your team. The neck rolls, musculature of the body, the eye set and expression - all spot on. The finished piece, with the little one on the base, is absolutely beautiful!

    Beautiful Dennis, loving seeing these WIP pictures. Question for you, what do you use for your veining (see it on the leg) and also what you use for resulting the form (vermiculite, mache, plaster, ?). Thanks.
     
  10. I love all the neat stuff being posted. All I have is a bobblehead made out of dock foam.

    I rarely ever have any problems at all. Usually they slide right over the nose.
