The whole body was sculpted from a blob with no symmetry into the pose it is in right now. so I had ended up hacking it into a t-pose, cleaned it up, projected onto new topology and reposed with skinning for accuracy.
And all that work?...BAM, down the drain. :)
The red pandas are staying, one will be swinging on that big ring in a pose I already have burned into my head... will be cool.
I need to learn when and where to commit to what I have. I've wasted a lot of time trying to find certain sweet spots that'll make sense later on if I was just a bit more confident. I feel like I'm quickly becoming a 'blockout artist' at this rate... lol.
