The photos here just don't do it justice. It is so pretty in the flesh.

And some real life Show dogs, very different to the ordinary pet English Setter. Personally I love these better, as I have an unusual love for Irish Setters also. What I love the most about these show dogs is not only the feathering, but the muzzle and dewlap, like that of a Pointer, to die for. I tried to capture that muzzle on my resculpt. Not only did I capture that, but the feathering also. Oooh.
The colour I painted is also realistic. In the breed this particular colour is known as 'Blue Belton' - while not being genetically blue, it appears that way, much like a Cattle Dog. it is, in fact, a moderately roaned dog.
I had so much fun painting this model.

The original model:

Show English Setters (which I used for reference. I did a lot to the original figure to make it work).

The neck is slightly too thick, and the head probably too big on my model, but as I didn't make it from scratch I had limited framework to work with. I am very pleased with how it turned out.

I will certainly add wip photos, when I get the chance.

Susanne - yes, that is such a beautiful dog! I suppose, though, like so many modern breeds, the ES has been modified for breeders. I must confess, however, that aside from the angulation of the hocks and topline of the show ES, I love everything else about them. They are such fantastic creatures.

If it helps, there are many pet and working examples that look more like your image.
Also, most of the best bred ES showdogs wouldn't look half as showy without their feathering.

Here is a clipped working English Setter, looking fairly similar to your image.

This next one is a clipped Show English Setter, showing little difference bar the lowered hocks and topline. These dogs are structurally sound - in this breed, I would not say the breeding has affected the health of the dog as in some breeds (i.e. pug).

And here, puppies stacked showing exactly how they will stand in the showring - without all the hair. At this age, it is clear what the grown dog will look like. These pups show excellent proportions.

And finally, a half grown pup showing its build without too much feathering:

Thankyou for the pictures Very Happy

Good that they are dogs inside that haystack, - but what is the use of a hunting dog, if you have to clip hime before you can take him out ?  scratch scratch

Beautiful work. I agree about the beautiful head shape you've resculpted on the figurine - it's regal! As for show breeding and health - the use of much narrowed genetic stock brought on by showring breeding has, I gather, increased the occurrence of at least the eye, thyroid and hip problems the breed suffers from.

Great custom. As for the breed, the amount of hair makes them look like their legs are shorter, and in some cases they are, but typically they are just a little hidden under their huge amount of fur. And as for sport vs. show dogs, of course they have changed over the years, people want elegant feathery dogs, and that's what breeders gave them. The hair on almost every bird hunting breed (at least in spaniels and setters) you HAVE to clip them before you take them out, otherwise the burrs and seeds from plants will never come out themselves.  Rolling Eyes

When I saw the first image I was like "Oh, that is so awesome!" And then when I saw the before and after image I was like "Can it guess any awesome-er?"
