How can I achieve such a contour?

I found the following contour on the internet and wanted to remodel it. But I can't get far with the Loft feature, or I can only connect one contour at a time on a layer. How do I get it to work as shown in the picture?

Best regards,

    My first thought was to use the Sculpt Face custom feature, but I don't think you'll get enough control. You may want to instead create a bunch of guide geometry and use the Fill feature (set the guides to "sampled"). I used sketch geometry to place where the flats are for the "feet", and I used my 3D Points custom feature to control the shape in between those. Here's an example of that. If neither of those gives you all of the control you want it'll have to be modeled in patches most likely.

    You are the man! Thank you! I´ve never used the Fill Feature.
