Oswald the Lucky Rabbit - Model Sheet Build Up via Reverse Engineering

For the class I'm taking part in we are all building a maquette of Oswald the Lucky Rabbit, the precusor to Mickey Mouse. To help out I built a set of model sheets to help everyone in class build the maquette.

This was kinda of an interesting reverse engineering job. The original maquette came from one of the Disney stores. I took several pictures for reference, then drew the whole thing into Photoshop. In took some 21 layers - but eventually I got much measuring and comparing....
