Description
I needed to add some upgrades to Sparky, he has some issues that really need addressing. Most are my own personal annoyance and others are technical issues. That and i promised i wouldn't move onto another quadsuit without him being 100% complete. His head needs to be re-foamed, it's too square and heavy and soul taking. The ruff needs to be detached from his head, moving is awkward and it stops the moving jaw from working. Stilts need to be bigger and have a padded handle.
Fur quality needs to be improved and i need to stop the leg padding from wiggling around.
