Well, this is sort of the sausage-making version of sculpture. But I think he’ll come out OK in the end. The body armature is only about 1/3 finished, and there are still a lot of decisions to make. Probably a lot more changes coming, too, as I continue to change my mind every 15 minutes.
It was fun working on him outside, but the weather is turning stormy, so I guess I’ll have to finish him down in the basement. That means he not only has to fit through my front door, he also has to be a shape that can be maneuvered through the kitchen and down the basement stairs. Wish me luck.
