This figure was deceptively complex. Dealing with the giant hair thing was part of that, but getting just the right base was also important. It wasn't just appearance, but a matter of counterbalance.
I had to make sure that I had enough weight to keep it from tipping over too easily. Also, the footprint of this figure was a bit different from a typical pose, and that meant a wider base. That heavier, more dense tree bark did just the trick!
