Dodo Continued

Dodo continued. The weights have been added to the inside back of the body, right near the base of the tail. This is the two tail pieces i have decided i want them to look like.
This is the tail and wings sewn and shown one piece of each stuffed. Do you notice how it gets more rounded once the pieces have been stuffed? Important to remember when drawing out your item that you are making. You need to visually flatten things out in order to get the finished shape you want. I am happy with this so far.
Wing and tail positioning. The Dodo is nicely balanced now and stands quite well even though the legs and feet are skinny.

The Dodo is balanced on his toes. The next thing i am going to do is cover the feet and legs, then i will be making the beak skin, followed by the body skin, then covering the wings, and the tail then assembling it. Keep watching, i hope you are not bored with it, it still has quite a way to go before it is finished.
