I was finally able to tear myself away from “Warhammer” long enough to finish up my sheep. I experimented with adding and manipulating anchor points to add some detail to the legs. I blurred the fur to make the sheep look soft and fluffy in contrast to his horns. Because this is an abstraction, I have left off the ears, hoping instead that the horns imply ears. So here the sheep is:
I worked some more on the sheep body and face tonight. I want to give the sheep a pink muzzle, but I can’t see the shape clearly in my mind yet. I also put in a place holder for the eye. I will also create a forward facing head too. Tomorrow I will spend some time refining the legs and hopefully finish the muzzle — oh, and add ears. Here’s what the sheep looks like today. I used lots of circles to build the bumpy fur. I also found some references on Google images to help me with head placement. My sheep is kinda plump, but I like it that way.
Yikes, there’s a dangling construction piece! Mr. Kuroneko003 says the horns look like a football helmet. I think they are cute even though real sheep don’t have such prominent horns. But it’s my sheep, so it has big pastry-like horns! Bleeh! I am also thinking about doing a chocolate brown recolor. I’m always amazed at the fair how nice the chocolate brown sheep’s fur is. It looks very rich and extra warm.
