Form Wedging & 3D Bridgman

Here's a quick figure sketch from imagination today to practice form wedging, as well as a cool project I'm working on, trying to turn a bridgman drawing in to a 3D model in SketchUp.

It's no easy task, partly because it just isn't and partly because sketchup isn't at all designed to do organic modeling, but nevertheless I spent the day solving problems and slowly but surely it started to work, I'm pretty happy with the way the refined arm is turning out, if I can get the rest of it to that level I'll be satisfied. Those external obliques are a pain though, spent a good hour fiddling with them and still couldn't find a good solution. Will work more on this and update it as it progresses.
