#11 Remarque: "Fox Watch"

A fox is a lavishly beautiful animal with a triangular shaped head and a look that a cartoonist would give to the devil!

When designing and modeling a longhaired or fur bearing animal, meaningful shapes and surface passages cannot be accomplished without understanding the subject's skeleton and anatomy.  The sculptor must assist the viewer with strong, simplified structure and understood bony waypoints.

This knowledge is also important when sculpting tomorrow's subject - birds.  Where a quadruped is covered with hair or fur, a bird is covered with feathers and the artist must know what's underneath and how the bones articulate.
