I thought I'd share with you some completed comissioned works from a couple of weeks ago.

Here's some pics of my next project and one of Char, a lovely greyhound mix that I'm doggy sitting for the next couple of weeks. She's not supposed to get up on the furniture at her house. But at mine anything goes. It's nice to have a dog in the house again.
My wire frame with steel shot bags sewn on,
plus a reference photo of Bart, the Bear. He was 9 feet 6inches tall!
My intial sketches
Char relaxing on the furniture.
I love the way she crosses her paws.

I'm fairly happy with this one overall. But there are a few things I learned that worked and few I'd do differently. One thing I found is that once I added the flocking a lot of the fine detailing became lost. Next time I think I'll carve the detail a bit more severely than I normally would. Secondly, I'd only do the legs in one layer of clay as they bulked out quite a bit after flocking. Next, I'd mask off areas with masking tape. Hopefully that'll keep them from mixing. I used a bit of scotch tape to remove some of the fibers that were in the wrong places. I hope you like her. I'll post the final pics soon.
