    Looks great..... folds in the arms look a bit erratic and overdone for that pose and the heavier
    material of the coat. Still looks very good. Keep it going.

    I like your observation.
    Actually, ... the problem of folds in late eighteenth-century tailoring is particular.
    At that time clothes were sewn almost distorting the body.
    In particular in the Thermidor period, the shapes became extreme, very narrow, very tight sleeves, with the classic puff at the height of the elbow, hung on dresses with narrow shoulders; enormous collars that made a very long neck stand out, the tails were free to flutter without constraints, practically without creasse.
    They were called Les Encroiable and Les Mervillouse.
    Although the dragoon is from a year before that historical moment, it is an officer and I can expect that in his uniform he had made, that particular taste for the "extraordinary" would already stand out
    Much work will be done with dry clay, not yet fired...
    The sculpture is not finished... :)
