While I was finishing up Lydia, I modified Sherman to put him in a more relaxed stance.

I felt sorry for him having his hand up all time on the chain for the whistled.

That's pretty nice. I really like your figures.

How about a relaxed fireman next? Somebody standing, but not doing much of anything. Maybe leaning against the tender?

Oh. Somehow, I had "Mr. Peabody" in mind.

Bruce,
Thats a good suggestion. I like the idea of him leaning against the tender, but what to do with his hands?

Good question.

I'm thinking it needs to be a pose that you don't mind seeing him hold for more than a few moments. ;)

Not sure how well any of these might work:

- arms crossed
- hands in pockets
- lighting a pipe
- holding on to the handle of a shovel. Maybe a foot propped up on the shovel.
- if not leaning on tender, he could be standing and have one hand about shoulder height on the edge of the cab

I guess I'm just wanting some non-sitting firemen :D

I like your suggestions Bruce. I'll see what I can come up with while I'm working on Claus Sprekles. I'm leaning towards a hand stretched out supporting himself on the cab look with maybe one hand on his hip pocket.
