The Makings Of A Fox Shoulder Mount

I’ve been trying to make a quick kit fox shoulder mount form. Started with a few blocks of foam today and got it mostly done to make a cast. Just need to coat it all so the mold doesn’t stick to it. It’s a lot better than my first attempt at making a form at least. Not sure how well it’ll look mounted yet, and I’ll likely have to fix proportions but for now I’m just learning, any advice would be appreciated, this is my first time making more than just a head from scratch.
