From sculpting the squirrel, I was able to make some serious headway in making more rigid armatures. It's these really difficult sculptures that you have to try more than once to make properly. At the end of day one, I told Jennifer that I was probably going to restart the sculpture. I'm glad I didn't. The pose turned out just right.
Oh, and I am glad that she talked me into putting jogging shorts on. Although I still firmly believe that pants on animals is unnecessary, they look great on the squirrel – and look at that tail!
