    Great start, is it on a lifecast of your own face?

    Don't forget to make the muzzle deep enough to accommodate a whole set of teeth and throat.

    Yes, it's on a lifecast of my own face.

    The side view looks good, but from head on it looks like the nose is too large and the face too long...hmm... still a lot to do though.

    How much room do I need? As it stands right now, it's about 2 inches of clay from my mouth.

    Update:





    I was thinking about using shell shock with fiberglass mat, has anyone tried that before? I was thinking about doing the same for the underskull...

    Looks great! I wrestled with this for awhile before taking a long break. I really need to finish mine.

    Looks awesome!

    Wow, really? Hmm are my proportions way off? It seems to look correct, but I am beginning to wonder how I am going to fit a tongue in the maw.

    Well it looks like you do have enough room from the profile!

    Try sticking a lollipop stick or something similar through the mouth until it hits the armature and measure the depth from that.

    I used a paperclip and it measured 1.5" haha.. I think I'm screwed, but I can't figure it out.

    I don't know. I don't want to mold it and have it not all fit.

    From the profile, it seems that my lips would reach the corner of chewie's mouth. That would probably be okay for teeth, not sure about a tongue.
