#78 In the Studio: "Tweaking" it . . .

Bitter cold wind has kept us inside and the moose "tweaking" continues in the studio.   Anatomy and proportion, clarity of contour and silhouette, meaningful and understood shape is my goal.  I try to determine if this will be a working sketch or will I complete and cast it.  I want to retain the freshness and simplicity of the initial idea.

Although the leg length is correct "by the book" and calipers, I'll consider exaggerating the length.  A piece of aluminum foil makes me see antler shape and silhouette.

I'm in pursuit of the essence of the animal.
