Today's Wild Hare... :)



I got a wild hare to put in some wilder hair! :D Just to the forelock. Just because I really should be doing anything but fiddling around over there (including taking the time to take the dogs to the park instead of a run around inside the garage - for both of our health). Ah well though, sometimes you just gotta take a few minutes to do something when the mood strikes ya! :)

Here I've only really added a tiny tad onto both sides of his forelock giving it taper & fringe. But I think it really helps from various angles a lot more. Especially to complete the "flare" feeling of his swishing tail - these are reminiscent to me of a flamenca dancer's dress motion... constantly whirling and so very full and heavy looking yet somehow light all the same!

Enough waxing philosophical... I have to hit the showers now. Got pretty grimy today (not doing this 20min add on)..

Btw, in case it's not really clear -> this is just the base & I'll be blending/grooving it one these tendrils firm up. Sunday! :D

What a different feel it has to me than this view I took yesterday..

OMG Morgen - cast him already! You are killing me here! lol

Morgen said...

Lol - tx hon butbutbut... no but seriously, I really thought I'd be done sooner but this guy has a lot of things I want to tweak to get as good as I possibly can. I know you can't please everyone but he's almost reverse engineer inspired? If that makes any sense? The more little things I tweak the more the rest "works" for me. Hope that made sense! :D

Love the forelock -- I've seen this look when a stallion "inflates" and bobs his head ... :)

Morgen said...

Love that term "inflates"! Its so true though. He is, for a "standing" horse he's really all over the place - just a split second pause actually. You nailed it Sue!

Carol said...

OMG Morgen he is looking incredible! The detail and expressiveness on his head and neck are really beautiful!

Morgen said...

Thank you Carol - I really hope someone commissions one with you. I keep showing off my Johann you're doing you know! And telling everyone to get in while the getting's good before you double/triple your rates due to demand. ANYHOW though, but seriously & sincerely, thanks! :)

He is so beautiful. I can't wait to get my hands on a copy of him. You've really outdone yourself on this one Morgen!

Morgen said...

Thank you so much Heather! It's encouraging to hear others dig him as much as I do. It's so funny with a standing horse, you wonder "well is this boring or what" and try to add life but... well... sometimes ya wonder if you're kidding yourself. ;) ANYHOW, thank you so much for the kind thoughts (everyone!). :)
