Rubber Johnny WIP

For my John Brown Maquette Sculpting class I am creating a maquette of Rubber Johnny from the brilliant music video of the same name by Chris Cunningham. At this point I am probably 50 or 60 percent done. We have worked by building up from an armature to a sketal frame that blocks out the bony, rigid masses. Now we have added the muscles. Comments critiques welcome.
