This latest commission is for the Dotti family to celebrate their newest addition! I'm especially in love with their pup Boo.
Boo is a Boston Terrier. I love the stubby tail and how his front paws are slightly turned in.
The Brother in Robin's Egg Blue.
The Baby in Scarlet. She'll be here by the end of July! Congrats guys :)
I had a hard time resolving the mid section. I didn't have the proper tool to carve out a flat/smooth interior curve. I almost need a tiny spoon. The knife cuts and doesn't scoop... if I'm making any sense.
I went with a soft curled pose for this carving. While searching around for reference images I fell in love with how cute tiny baby feet are. I think I did a pretty good job with the feet. Scale-wise she's WAY TOO large in comparison to her brother's carving, but I had to make her bigger in order to get the detail I wanted.
