A couple of things I notice in looking at it - one is that his head seems more bent toward the bass (it is a bass, yes?) in the photo.
I noticed that right when I got the head to look halfway decent. And yeah, NHP was a bassist.

It'll help with relative sizes and perspective as things come together, I think. On ponies, I personally used their giant melon heads, or else the most dynamic part of the pose...
I did not, but I'll definitely do that next time. Thanks!

I'm really glad you made this thread. I never would've started something like this alone.
