    This is my frist attempt at a coyote. I had to add almost six inches to the form lenth, however, I did not change the girth of the form and now it seems skinny - any advice?

    Next one widen the girth as well as lengthening it. You have to keep everything in proportion. If you lengthen it, it needs widened to.
     

  3. Not sure but i think there might need to be some slight wrinkles in the muzzle....not as much as if it were snarling but just slightly

    thanks for the advice, if i was to go to the trouble to re-hydrate and try to shorten the length and try to add girth in the shoulder/ribcage area would i be on the right track?

    Mark is right about keeping proportion, but six inches of length is still too much for that form and even adding girth wouldn't make it look correct. I think a lot of that extra skin could have been taxied around and "stacked" in place. just my opinion

    Nina, stretching the hide width wise would have taken out some of the length, so 6 inches would not necessary any more.
