A Work In Progress
Sometimes what looks fine in a sketch doesn't translate well when it's blown up to a 2x3 foot canvas. As I lay down the bottom layers of fur, I realize I'm not happy with the polar bear's right leg. The angle is awkward and doesn't look right. I also have a problem with the face. The nose is too long. I'll have to tweak these two problem areas until they seem more real. Too bad I let that polar bear model go home early. I could use a few more poses to choose from.
