But the animal faces still need work. What is amazing is how sensitive we are to facial features, whether they belong to people or animals. An eighth of an inch tweak to an eyelid, a shift of a facial plane-- it can change everything about the expression or presence of a face. So there is an infinite amount of subtle adjustment yet to come for our little animals here. It is very hard to catch the soul of Bruce Wayne (that was the name of the model for the little sheep here-- a particularly valiant and charming Babydoll Southdown ram).
