Progress

I think I am making some progress with Andre. I'm pleased with his front half, mostly. I am very pleased with the left side of his head:







I am not thrilled with his rear just yet, though. My brain is rebelling and refusing to 'see' what needs to happen with those big 'ole butt muscles:

I think I'll spend some time on Photoshop changing things around. as you can see, I couldn't resist adding some details like wrinkles. Sometimes I need that to encourage me onward, to be able to visualize what direction I am trying to take this sculpture in.

We've been getting snow non-stop for days, which really helps me settle in and get into sculpting mode. I love days like these where staying indoors with a warm cozy fire going and sculpting feels like the exact right thing to do :)

I love his new expression with the flicked ear.. he's still friendly and willing, but you can just see him listening to the driver of his carriage. :)

Heheh - I can never get my (real) mare's haunches to work with me either!

I think he's looking awesome, Sarah! I liked the pricked-forward ears a bit better but this softer expression is also very charming.
