Started in early this morning adding scrap upholstery foam onto the Mach III. (There is a foam shop near me that I can buy rolls of foam in varying thickness for additional fleshy exploits later.) You'll notice the bolts in the feet now, when this animation practice armature is finished, I'll be experimenting with tiedowns on a rehearsal stage.
I'm having great illegal levels of fun shaping this trial puppet up with scissors. (HAVE TO stop for the day to do paid work.) But will pick this up again in days to come, further deep carving the foam to match the clay sculpt, adding hooves, etc.
Tomorrow I plan to cover the legs with faux shearling fleece, rather than squander the beautiful brown goat skin I have at the ready, in all its primitively lengthy, wispy curled glory, to ply on the final Rana puppet.
