Don't stress over it too much. This is why I like to open up the poses and get the arms and legs outside the mass of the body. Too many things crossing in front of the body breaks up the silhouette. Just imagine your figure as a solid black shadow, can you tell what it is? This is why I like the extreme poses, because you can pick out the silhouette from across the table. JIM
Just a quick update. After playing around with the Elder Dragon, I will be able to fit him on a single page. The Ancient one, (150mm) will be pushing it. I am not sure he will fit, so he might be a tad smaller. I'll try and make up for his bulk in wideness if not tallness.
I spent the weekend polishing and nitpicking on different aspects of these. With any luck, they will be finished and posted soon.
Oh oh...I am my own worst critic and when it comes to polishing and nitpicking...it never ends. So... good luck with that! It took me decades to finally learn to let go and even then it's a real struggle.

cowboyleland: I always thought Tirick was a little mad.

Vermin King: Really worn out tonight, so when I'm like that I just look for things I used to have, but don't any more. I got the Zippy models and am rebuilding my Tirick/TCF Gaming folder. How the heck would anyone build his 1/1000 Battletech mechs without enlarging

Toman: yea I have been. pretty cool project. I've done a few scratch builds like that but not as large. cutting individual stones or carving stones in foam sucks.

Vermin King: Anybody else following Mauther's home-made Playmobile castle build? Looks really good so far

cowboyleland: Good point. Maybe make the wing feathers seperately so that the wind could get through them?

squirmydad: We had two operators for the hawk though, one to carry the weight and the other to flap the wings.

squirmydad: Probably silk and dowels. I assisted in the construction of a giant hawk puppet for an indoor show, probably about the same size as that pegasus.

Vermin King: It's got to be really light. The article dealt with parade puppets. I don't think I'd want to be trying to control that in a stiff wind

lightning: that's a nice pegasus!

shep: Will it fly, if you move the wings fast enough?
