His arms still need work, some of which might have to be done in the hard wax, and I need to settle on a style for the leg fur — it can get more abstract or more literal in places, but atm it’s a bit too diverse — and the hair needs to be better. And a few other things, but I think all of the really tricky stuff is done.
I need to think about where to go after this. I’ve got a few small pieces to finish up, but aside from those, what’s next? I like detail and a decorative quality, but I also like bold work like that of Dylan Lewis, and want to try working rougher, or mingling the rough and the smooth. I also want to improve my knowledge of anatomy. That seems vital, whatever style you’re making figures in (abstraction doesn’t really appeal to me). I’ve got a long list of things I want to make, but I’m especially fond of the blindfolded head with the hands, and think it could be an interesting image to explore. As an exercise, I might try working with that figure in a few different styles and poses.
