I am seriously beginning to doubt that I will complete even "stage one" of the marsupial in time for the EBSQ "Marsupials and Other Australian Oddities" online art show.
The hands and arms are proving to be a whole lot trickier than I would have imagined.
I am trying to give the aluminum foil covered styrofoam packing material arms a little bit of shape and make the hand attach as part of that instead of doing it all separately. I think that the plaster cloth step and attaching the hand/arm will go better if this is one piece.
So far today/this evening I have only gotten this far with the one 3-piece section. I am trying to shape as I go along.
This is the three-piece section lightly taped in place.
I am also trying to figure out how the arm/shoulder will look. I don't want the elbows poking waaaaaay out to the side, either.
I just don't know.
I will figure it out...just not tonight.
