I have worked on this one on and off since last time I posted an update for him.
Here is his body as of now. I have been working on his hind end making his legs. The left side is much better than the right at the moment. I put a hole on each side where the socket should be.
The legs also have a hole where they align with the hole on the bodies. This helps me ensure I get an event placement. I had the left leg close to finish for a while, but making the right leg match it was a challenge. But I think I have it pretty close. The paw area is not complete though so it looks like a hoof, which will not be the final result.
Sorry for the odd angle of the below picture. Since he doesn't have sockets yet I had to hold the legs to his body to get a good shot. I still have to sculpt around the back end to make the legs look more natural with the body. By accident I found the ridges I made on the body where I cut out a slot for the legs made perfect stops for leg movements.
I also need to work on my other 2 dolls. Arisu and the Kodama.
