Hair, fur, eyebrows and lashes; nails, hooves, horns; even scales and feathers:
keratinous growths in vertebrates all seem to originate from the epidermis, believe it or not!
After years of trial-and-error, here is my January 2019 WIP for a typical inhabitant of Arrinda,
meant as prototype for a number of named characters, plus more than a dozen citizens-at-large:
She is rigged, has facial expressions, can climb ropes and even talk; but now, I shall have to devote
the first half of 2019 to a major change-of-address, from Chile to Oregon.
It may be Christmas before I’m back in the saddle: sorry about that.
