Another commission finished, it's the biggest dog sculpture I've done so far 1:9 scale - the commission is from a local and I went to see the dog to take photos, he's beautiful and had incredibly soft fur.
More photos on my blog here http://hkhollinstone.blogspot.co.uk/2012/09/flat-coated-retriever-19.html



and Westie for size comparison


In real life the sculpture is darker, it's really hard photographing black animals.

Beautiful model Harriet, I'm sure you will have a big success with this one Very Happy

I can't help for sculpting and making mold. Nevertheless for photographing black animals, the best is to use dark background because sensors are less fine than our eyes with big contrasts Wink

I wished to see pictures of the faces of the persons that ask for these comissions when they see them for the first time! Very Happy Please take pictures of it!!! bounce Laughing Embarassed
Well, it is again a fantastic work and it was nice to see you working with a zoo, anytime someone adopted an animal you needed to sculpt it for this person and start a limited series of it. Hahah! Wink

Great tip ! Thankyou very much, Christophe flower
I have found that dark models are best in medium-bright sunshine
...but how often is it possibel to order medium-sunshine ? sunny scratch geek
Much easier to make a dark background Wink
