I posted a WIP screen shot in the wolf thread in p.b.i.  I can give you what I
have now, if you like, but it isn't posed or textured, and up close face shots
should be avoided since it has no eyes.  Hopefully your idea involves a
silhouette :)

I've posted an image in p.b.i of the fox model I've made, in the Poser Wolf,
thread.

  Maybe if it was looking a bit more downwards (like it was looking downhill
at the camera), with the front legs a bit more towards the back and the tail
a bit more raised, it could be about perfect. Maybe the mouth closed.

  OTOH the deadline is approaching so fast that this may be a futile
endeavour... :(

OK I can do that, quite quickly. What sort of downward angle and how high do you
want the tail?

I'll try not to hold you up and good luck :)

  Maybe like the camera was at ground level, and the tail perhaps a bit
higher than the body.

  Where can I get the model?

  (And if I get to submit my entry, which name should I use to credit the
model?)

OK I will pose it in Poser and post some images until I get it right. Do you
want the fox to be on the slope of the hill? and if so what angle?

To test I've uploaded the files used in the test render in povray.binaries.misc
in the thread Fox Files - Fox2_.zip
It is a 3 part zip file containing the files; Fox01b_POV_scene.pov,
Fox01b_POV_mat.inc, Fox01b_POV_main.ini, Fox01b_POV_geom.inc and
Fox01b_FoxMilCat.jpg
You will need to scale it and invert the x axis.

  Standing on flat ground is ok.

  Maybe the head could be less tilted, if at all. Now it seems just like
he's being curious, rather than prepared to attack.

Is that tilted to the side or up and down. Closing the mouth might have made him
look curious.

  It's now tilted to the side, which makes him look curious.

  Maybe more like this:

  Btw, for some reason neither linux's unzip nor konqueror is able to unpack
the multipart zip you posted. I can't retrieve the files inside.
