I have been working on my sculpture's hind end after focusing on his forelegs, head and neck. I think I am finally happy with them. However, only time will tell as I am now adding the tail to see how the overall piece balances, both in the sense of physics and overall appearance!
The tail is incredibly rough here, it will end up with more depth and flow. I don't plan on going right to the end of the tin foil there, either. But so far, so good!
