The Dancer takes shape

I have roughed out the basic form of the Dancer, part of the Running Free sculpture.  She is running alongside the Horse, the right hand caressing the horse's face.  That won't be finalized until the two pieces are brought together, to make sure they connect well.

Right now the goal was to get the pose right, and block in the major forms and masses, to make sure the proportions are correct.  From here I will work on refining the main shape before going into any detail work.  I will also built an armature for the dress that will flow away at the back while the sculpture is still rough.  I may have to alter things, so it's best to stay away from detail work that may be thrown away if major changes occur.
