Argh - I've missed a number of comments on this, apparently! I'm sorry. I thank you all, if belatedly, for your compliments!
The Neo hasn't progressed since its baking, no, I'm sorry to say - I've had commissioned work take precedence over it plus some trouble with my sculpting hand, so I haven't been able to work on the dog at all. I'll update the thread with pictures as soon as I have something new on her to show.
