Hello friends,
It's a long time since I started a new topic, but now I  finally have something to share with you :)
Yesterday I stated with the sculpting of "Max", a Golden retriever that belongs to a friend of my mother. It's supposed to be a birthday (some day in march scratch) present and I hope I'll have it finished in time.

Anyway, here's what I've done so far. He's not too big (even though I planned it to be bigger but I suppose my hands have become too used to sculpting small things...). I've included a comparison picture with a smaller schleich dog. I do not own any Goldens of major brands to compare it with...

I haven't any big notices to say right now Very Happy
Now he looks very well, I need to see more detailed version. It's one thing that I would improve: do you think that you need to smooth his scapulas?
I like all other details cheers
Thank you for sharing!

He is beautyful, even if not finished Very Happy

Anasta has a point, - the shoulderbaldes stand out a bit too much, but perhaps you planned to smoothe is when making "fur" ?

The pose, the head, the proportions are wonderful cheers

Thank you Susanne and Anasta, for the advise and for liking him so far.
The proportions were my first concern so that's probably whey I haven't smoothed the schoulderblades yet I think scratch I'll be working on it :)

Very beautiful dog! Amazing work! I love the fur detail, pose and everything! Very Happy Applause

If I would suggest very little, really miniature change, I would add some material above the eyes, some sort of "eyebrows" (not exactly but I think you know what I mean) Dogs have some muscles above the eyes, that way eyes normally look like they are a bit deeper. I hope you don't mean that little advice? It's really a minor change I think?

Other than that he looks really perfect. The little paws are so cute Very Happy

Can't wait to see him painted Very Happy

I understand what you mean. I'll add the "eyebrows" to my sculpture as soon as I'm able to work on it again :)

Thanks for the advise Very Happy I always appreciate contructive critisism. I can't improve my work without it, can I? Wink

Well, we need to wait too much time for week-end XD
I like the pose very much. You made not really detailed (I mean very little fur) texture, but your painjob is absolutaly wonderful; all details look how they should look, especialy eyes, which are just awesome.
But I think his head is a bit too round, and conversition from cheek to muzzle is too sharp. I think cheeks should be more smooth.
That's why I asked you for more photos. I hope I didn't hurt you! Anyway, I can mistake.

Ofcourse not Wink I'm very pleased to get some feedback I can use Very Happy . I see what you mean with the head being a bit too round and I'll try to take more notice to that with future sculptures.
Thanks again!
