I've changed some things as Rogerio suggested. I also consider making new ears and making bigger chest. I've changed the colouring, thickened the tail and lenghtened the nose. The figure is really small, there's the comparison with Schleich wolf pup:

great work--I watched a video of the pack taking down a baby Gaur with its huge mother trying to protect him. Reminded me so much of the African Wild Dog hunting practice.

Agata, the figure is really small. I'm actually impressed with the amount of detail you can put in it. Shocked It is terrible for me to keep suggesting once I don't have idea how much work it gives and what really is possible to do in such a small figurine. . Very Happy
The figure is better, mainly in profile view. I continue thinking ears are too close and nose is not close enough to the mouth, I'm not sure I like the vertical strip between nose and mouth, it looks minimal in real animals. It also gives the cat appearance I told before. cat
The work is very nice, please don't change it because of my suggestions, I don't trust in my observations although I enjoy commenting. flower geek flower

No problem Roger, I will change the ears but I can't change the position of nose - I would have to make a completely new one :) Thank you for appreciation guys!

Right. Here's the final version of my dhole. I've changed the ears completely, I hope it looks now more like a dog than a cat. I hope you'll enjoy it. I've also decided to make a small scene with dhole and takin - I'm actually working on a new mishmi.

Very nice Agata Very Happy It looks more like a dhole now. IMHO it would be even better if the neck was more fuzzy. I think the dhole necks are looking big because the hairs are fuzzy.

I know Kiki, but it is really hard to make a fluffy fur structure on such a small figure - even if I add some more clay, it still looks flat Sad

Wow, I wasn't expecting that changing ears had such an important effect. I think it looks definitively better now. Very Happy
Not only it looks more like a dhole as the figure had a pleasant looking result. flower Very good work with such a hard and small animal. Very Happy
I'm glad you're working again on takin. Very Happy
