I personally think it's an interesting idea. You always see such things connect mainly to the back, but if it's something like a kangaroo, which needs its tail as a balance and a chair at the same time, then you'd need extra support. Plus it adds some lovely shapes to his front, so... Well I like it!
LOL WELL. FINALLY. Someone understands what I was thinking at the time! It also connects to his back and to his spinal piece which has the breathing-tube connected to it. I have yet to make a proper Ref for him though... @u@; But thank you!
LOL. Well. It's also connected to his back, and I'll have to draw his backside later, because he has the breathing tube behind there, and really, he just has a long line of metal showing through his bum up to his neck. The tail is also connected from the back. :V Just a weight distribution, really. xD He's a kangaroo! He needs to stand on that sometimes!
