Well peeps. I tried. I was going to make the rest of him, but it didn't work out. Meh, maybe it'll get me somewhere, honestly, I'm not very happy with it. But -shrugs- didn't have enough time. See ya next time.
To be honest I agree with your assessment of it, it looks very rushed. To me it looks more like a dog than a lion too.... I think making a smaller, yet intricate and detailed, build might have been better. Good luck.
It's nice. As you said, a little unfinished, but it reminds me so much of the lion from "Bedknobs and Broomsticks" (a movie of my childhood), that I can't help but like it. Best of luck to you Garrett. I metaphorically raise my mug in salute
