On this photo, it was very apparent that he lacked serious movement in his hind leg and one of my friends drew this on really effectively. They also helped with the near shoulder which I was having trouble with previously.
I have also been recommended the book 'Modelling and Sculpting Animals by Edouard Lanteri' and so I have purchased it and I can't wait to look at it and share what I learn from it.
I have a lot of work at university and it is only going to get worse unfortunately but I aim to work on him in revision breaks during Easter whilst I am studying for my exams, once Bailadito is out of the way!
Speaking of Bailadito, the response to him has been very lifting for me indeed, and I would like to thank you all yet again!! I will be sending the first casting out on Monday and he will be painted really quick. Horsing Around have done a wonderful job on the castings, the clean-up work is so incredibly minimal, and he looks so good and professional now that he is one colour and not three shades of grey (not quite fifty!!)
Sorry, bad joke... ;-)
