If you shortened the front legs [as in cut off below the knee] that would be a better length. They are a short legged breed. And can’t say that I have ever seen them dance like that in my entire life! “Bulldog stance” is about as active they feel the need to be.

Great references there, thanks, patience.  Made some progress, but will have to re-think the dewlaps.::)

Coming along nicely [and better than mine lol ..]
The bulldog is an interesting build for sure.

Another link;

http://www.amazon.co.uk/Book-Bulldog-Joan-McDonald-Brearley/dp/0866220275 shows the front wider than the back end.
The book has some ‘click to view’ pages showing more front and faces!


Build-wise they make great footstools, not for putting your feet on, but for falling over! Not a dog to take jogging. Aside from the fact that they do not have that kind of energy and overheat unbelievably fast; they will turn and ‘stand’ lengthwise in front of you [like a footstool] to stop you [herding method]. They have their ways! lol ...

Hey, the cover of the book has solved a couple of mysteries on how to proceed with the head! 

let’s have a look at your WIP - love to see how others tackle this very interesting modelling challenge.

All done smile

I’ll do the wrinkles after UV mapping and another smoothing level and make the ears floppy with rigging.

Cheers

And WendyCatz- your rapid bulldog animation is a real eyeopener! Top points for diving in to a quite daunting (TO ME) modelling project, and giving us a chuckle too. I loved those bulldog moves.

I think youve started a whole new trend here - blitzmodelling ?- We should start it as a new game.  We could have 1, 2,5,and or10 minute blitzmodellng categories - subject could be anything goes? or we could have subjects like this bulldog. Then the person with the most creative model AND animations that it can do, gets a noddy badge (or some agreed prize).  Kind of a modelling variation on speed chess? Hey, it could be come a 3D world craze!

Have made a few starts at this ... we’ll see how far this one goes. Trying a slightly different approach which I plan to combine in with the more traditional one afterwards.

The “one thing” i can make well ... ‘cause who can’t, it comes with the program, “the eyeball”.
However one is modeling their bulldog, they will want the eyes to be kept as separate groups so they can be rigged later.

Hi everyone.  This looks very interesting, I may even give it a go if I have time.  Looks like some of you are off to a good start already.

Danny.
