I've just been messing with some different directions, I'm liking the idea of him sitting on a park bench (current bench is a place holder) with his faithful companion by his side, maybe with some beer bottles and a car battery sitting on the ground. His hair is also missing in this shot.
Thanks for the comments everyone, will be sure to drop by your threads.
markrulz: Love the idea of a Frisbee, thanks! I was trying to think of something to lighten the mood and I think this works well.
Still plenty of work to do (posing, asymmetry, stitches, hair, cloth folds to name a few), hoping I get it all done.
