PHEW!
Time flies when everything is happening at once. Sorry for taking so long with this update, but I wanted to actually have some progress to show. It is getting pretty close.

This is the face before reapplying the topology

Here is the face after. This was exhausting, and I will probably not do it manually like this again. Or at least, not for the WHOLE BODY!

And, as I had some extra time, I have finally added a rig. Now, on to the color!

If you are curious about the tail, I am using a path and a spline Ik restraint to make the bones follow it. Once I add fur, it will look nicer, optimistically.

Almost done with the fur. I need to add some longer fur around the head, some around the joints, and roughen the color transition to the hands and feet, but I wanted to make a small update. You may notice a bit of discoloration in the gray fur. Small mistake that shall be soon rectified, I assure you.

I made shape keys that allow him to open his mouth (no teeth. Sorry. I didn't think I was going to make the mouth open until later, when the window of opportunity for such details was quite the opposite), smile, frown, blink, and look around. More renders will have to wait, though. This last one took about two hours, and behold, testing week is upon us! I dare not tarry any longer.

Mostly, thats just a bit of discoloration due to an unfortunate mixup of colors. I was able to fix the discoloration for the most part with the mighty gimp, and I ended up lengthening the fur slightly to smooth it out a bit. Thank you for the constructive criticism. It really helps.

At this moment, I think that I will call this model finished for the time. There is a sizeable number of adjustments I could make the joints and fur to make them look lovelier, but I think that I will give myself, and McKade, a rest. After all, just look at how tired he is! At any rate, I shall be moving to other projects for the near future, such as Douglas. If anyone would like to see any particular renders of McKade, however, I would be happy to oblige. I can always use practice with lighting.

As for improvements from last time, I added gloss to the eyes, and nose, though you can't see it, as well as the head fur, and some general adjustements to the rest of the body fur.

Woo! :D
Make sure to use all the references of King you can find for the body shape and proportions. ;)
