Finishing the pigs head

I added raising and lowering eyebrows by connecting a rod to the springthat connects the eyebrow linkage and ran it through a brass tube that runs down the back of the head post.

I used a red boa for his hair andeyebrows. Here is the finished product.

Pig Head mechanics

Inside the head you can see that I attached the eyes and the mouth with magic sculpt. Not too neat bt very functional.

I put eye screws in each eyeball and attached a looped "T" control bar to them.
I ran a tube up the headstick and into the head and made the "L" shaped rod controller that moves the eyes back and forth.
Two tubes were run through forehead and rods bent inside with a spring attached for the eyebrow control and eyebrows in the front.
I coated the eye brow rods with magic sculpt and feathered them to look like eyebrows.

I sanded the face real well and painted it and this is where we are so far.
