Ahhh Susanne you are too clever cheers I thought it might take longer Very Happy

It's for a new family member with a Japanese mum. We wanted to find a Japanese animal to send as a gift but we couldn't find anything suitable so decided to make one.

Great job as always Jason, but before you bake take a look at some photos, the body needs to be fatter, it should be almost as fat as the mane! Unless you're going to add bulk on another layer, then he's perfect as is.

Thanks for the feedback Phil. As with most species there can be significant variations in body shape and colouration. This is my model - not as full or fluffy in the body as many other pictures that I've seen but it had a very good side profile to base the shape from... My photo also makes the head look disproportionately large to the body because of the closeup with my iphone camera - in reality it's better proportioned Smile I'm probably at a disadvantage though as I've never seen one in real life!

I've never seen one that skinny! But you're model does fit that individual very well! I give you my approval to continue.

As some of you know me from other then here you can get the joke but for those who may think I'm being overly controlling, when artists like Jason (and he is an artist, not just a sculptor) has done commissions for me in the past I decide on the scale and species, I give him my idea of a scene in my head and the rest is pretty much in his hands, so no matter what I think, it is only my opinion. You may think I'm being over sensitive but recently some people who don't know me have sent me some hate mail over a very clear joke between myself and another friend who is an artists but sometimes others take life just a little to seriously!

No Jason, it wasn't you or your work, it was another friend and a stranger came at me with hate mail over it, I knew you would be good with any help I might give, besides, real offers of suggestions are just that suggestions, nothing more!

Looks fantastic Jason! Now that looks like the dog I remember! You nailed the color, so lifelike!!!

What scale is he? Or if you didn't make him to a scale how big is he, head to tail and shoulder height?

Thankyou! My biggest worry with this model was trying to make the long fur look believable - so you have made my day  cheers

He's 11cm long and 6cm at the shoulder. Not made to a particular scale.

Thankyou Suzanne, Widukind and Kikimalou!

This model has great sculpting and paint work, it looks really nice. I particularly like the way you painted the mottled hair pattern.

Thankyou Elephas, Noemi, Costicuba, Jonas, Karin, Geospiza, Florian, Robert, Lucky, Anna, LeeAnn and Paleoferroequine!! So nice to receive such a lovely response, especially about the coat - so for Christophe here are some closer photos.. as for a tutorial I don't really have any other progress shots but just quickly to get this effect I followed these steps:

1. heavier texture scoring in the clay to give the impression of thicker fur
2. white undercoat
3. bone colour base coat over most of the body, black base coat over chest/front legs
4. black rinse over everything (to get the black into the grooves) and dull down the bone
5. small black streaks trying to follow the texture pattern on the model and also following the fur pattern
6. light brown patching (minimal) on around ears, top head, across top of back and behind shoulders
7. brown rinse over the same areas to blend the brown
8. small bone streaks again trying to follow the fur texture pattern (these stand out over the dulled down bone from step 3.
9. mix of white and bone to get the lighter highlights (tufts of fur and particularly around rump)
10. fiddling with smaller streaks of black, bone and white/bone mix until I was happy enough with it!


I think it's more effective when viewed back from a slight distance, like pixels in a photo it's not quite so great up very close!!

Florian, I'm sorry but no copies - it's a OOAK gift for someone  Smile
