    Elephant Re-do #2

    Third times a charm (I hope)
    I've been been working on this elephant/mammoth/forklift for a while now, it's still pretty rough but I'm happy with the way it's coming along. My biggest issue is that there's something weird about the head and body interface, but I can't figure out what it is. Any input would be gratefully accepted.

    Regards
    Andrew

    i like it a lot man, personally I like the middle pic with the natural looking tusks. The body needs some more mass.

    good luck man!

    When you say interface, do you mean the point where the head meets the body?

    If so, I think maybe the head of the elephant needs to to be "pushed" in more, and not extruding so far away from the body. It will also help you to figure it out if you add more to the actual body.

    JL.Alfaro - Thanks for the advice, I will add mass to the body and legs, I just don't want to do too much until I get the basic shape right.

    Reckless! - Do you think I should push the head in towards the body, or bring the lower chest and ribcage forwards?

    Regards
    Andrew
