    46" Buff being Hit by Big Lion.....
    Day one.....alter buffalo from static standing pose to jump, run, lifted from end off balance from lion hit.
    Adapt lion form to connect hip to hip with buffalo and front right arm grabbing for Buffalo's boss...
    Bad cell phone pic but you can see what I DO....The entire piece will be suspended of the one back left leg of buffalo......only connection point to the base....

    look at all the scrap foam on the floor! that gives you an idea of how much work goes into a piece like that.thanks for posting this Dennis. I know that I have put in a full days work when the floor in my studio looks like that.
