A New Dawg Design......

I really enjoy working on dawgs...they are such a challenge, coming up with the different head designs and then of course the fun of hand tinting the markings! I really like to make them unique and fun, adding whimsy but keeping to a very old antique toy look.....and so I present to you my newest design.....the Whimsical Hound Dog!
Although I was not really going for a particular breed or inspired by one particular dog this time..... I just let my creativity spill over to see what unique character could be born...... which ultimately turned into more of a hound dog look :)


And I really like the end result, and of course he is keeping with my all time fave theme.... The Vintage Circus :) I am currently offering him on ebay as a 3-day auction so if you want to see alot more pics and details you can click on the link provided in my sidebar. He was a little stinker trying to get some good photographs....I don't think I captured how truly "Wuvvable" he really is :)
Well it's back to the studio for me.....hmmmmm what breed should I make next ?? I have so many ideas but never enough time......
Enjoy your day and make it a good one! Bye for now.
