That's the thing, it looks good one way and not the other, same deal if you change the perspective. My references differ a lot so they aren't helping much. 99% are side views anyway. I'm also trying to avoid a sunken skull look but keep the boney knobs and eyebrows for artistic license.

We are slowing down. It's that time of year.  The county won their court case as we just gave in to get rid of them. I can no longer do events, field trips or parties here until I build a restroom. if I want to open more trails with more models I need 5,000 to get a new siteplan, have it submitted for review where they can always say no...basically I'm left to use what I have and no more growing of the park grounds.

I'm sorry about the county. It's frustrating that they decided to fixate on you, but you've built something really cool that a lot of people have been able to enjoy. I can't even imagine the amount of effort that's gone into all of your statues (considering you're toiling over eye position for accuracy I think I can make an educated guess!) and I hope you continue to work on new things for the park. I don't post much but I always enjoy seeing the updates.

Hey Chris @Blade-of-the-Moon let me be the first (I think) to congratulate you for your Stegosaurus being featured in a Prehistoric Times article on Stegosaurus in the latest issue #135. Nice photo.

One eye done. It has taken me way too long to actually get this sculpted in but well there it is.  Lol

Your painted eye has been great, the look of the theropod with that eye is threatening. I can't wait to see your finished work.

Wow, great. I hope everything is not too harsh with your Park and the Law and all that Stuff going on with that.

The Head looks great and i sometimes forget the Size you are working in. Or the real Animals Size. Charts and Art and Figures are one thing, but when i see your Screwdrivers/other Tools next to it and imagine a Person next to it... Nice.

Thank you both.

I just paid another inspector today for a permit for electrical, I have another one coming seems like. The county won so we got them wrapped up with demands at least. To be honest I'm just exhausted.
