    Looks great Chris. One of the issues I had with the DAZ Mil Dog were the paws were so boxy looking so hopefully your mods to the cats paws will be JUST ENOUGH to look like a canine without going that route. I know some dogs have huge paws and they look thick but they still look pliable and soft. That wasn't the case with the Mil Dog and that alone (it was way before I learning how to model or I would have created my own mods to them) kept me from using that figure...

    The feet were usually the sore point on the DAZ animals. The rest of the modeling was fairly convincing to very convincing, but the feet were always clumsy, and never looked like "real" feet.

    Nice Chris. I'm really liking the shape of his head a lot. ;)

    I like him too, can't wait for the feet to be done. (I don't know what the USA Show Labs look like but he looks a bit jowly to me)

    Looks great. And I know we are a long way off from rigging and posing and the like, but that comment made me really want a 'chasing my tail' pose for this guy when he is rigged.

    Today's work. Getting closer. Been hearing some complaints that I'm putting too much time and attention to animals. Trying to do what I can at least. Still doing work on Sora for Dawn, so that's good. Others are creating for Dusk, Dawn and Pen's recent Diva should help I would think.

    Anyway, here is today.

    Well, as much as I'm looking forward to Sora, and I can think of lots of people updates I might like, there aren't that many good animals out there (unless we're talking birds of course ;)). I say work on the animals.

    On that note, I'm not sure how much you've done yet on the back end of the dog, but most of the dogs I've had have had pretty round back thighs. I tried to find a graceful picture of my parents dog to illustrate this, instead I found a less than graceful picture of a friends service dog. Admittedly she's in kind of an extreme pose (well, not for her) but you can see the curves on her back legs. And although she's clearly not a show dog, she is a pure breed golden retriever.

    Oh yes, she really is. Probably the most spoiled working dog I know.

    It's impossible not to spoil a golden retriever ;)
