Time to start my next book. I've been sick lately so unfortunately, I haven't been as productive as I should have been. Anyway, first up is to model another dog. Above are the reference images I was given.
Here I'm roughing out the general shape of the body. I'll be modeling the body and head separately so I just left a hole where the head will go.
I extruded out the legs and feet followed by the arms and hands. The book had me copy the toes from the feet and attach them to the hand. It wasn't much of a shortcut since I had to spend time tweaking the toes to fit the hand and making them look more finger like.
Below is what the body looks like all smoothed out.
