I’m going to be away from the drawing board for the next couple of days, so this is about as much progress as there will be for the time being until I can get back on to it. Unfortunate, but it does need to be done – I hope to elucidate more later. For now however, I’ve made a start on the tree of this piece. Its showing already how much tweaking needs to be done on the otter, which is why I didn’t go full on towards finishing that area before I made a start on the tree. There’s a long way to go still, but even at this early stage I’m quite happy with how it is looking.
