Really , the picture doesn't do it justice !!!! It's beautiful !!! It was for SIL who lost his Brisben ( picture in Rainbow Bridge ) She got every detail and John was almost in tears !!!! It was the best gift I gave this Christmas !!
Smkie's right, as cool as that picture looks, it's nothing to seeing it in real life! I just held it when she showed it to me and was literally at a loss for words...a VERY rare occurance for me! All I could say was "wow..." over and over...it's one of those "POP" sculptures, the type that just grabs your attention and makes you swear that it's a real thing with bronze poured over it.
can someone cut and paste the pic from Brisbin's rainbow thread. I think you need to see the photo i went off of. i just want you to see it as i did. thanks for the kind words.I put it in my gallery but i cant copy and paste
Grammy these are way harder for me then your realize that is why i try so hard to duck em when they come my way. THe artist that wants this one is way good and the pressure is on. She saw yours and that is what got me into all this trouble, it is all your fault! I am just grateful if they turn out at all let alone expect them to be what i want. I will show you but today it is like wrestling alligators. I can do make up dogs easily but to make it not only look like a specific dog one but to have expression too and to start with a ball of mud is insane. Plus this one has distict markings that i have to not see...black muzzle, black rimmed eyes. arrrgh Gargolyes are way more fun. Tired of fish tho.
The artist saw yours and said YOUR TAKING ORDERS? and i wasn't thinking..i said i should i am broke...she said I WILL MAIL YOU THE PHOTOS AS SOON AS I GET HOME And she did. Took me three hours to wrestle clay into her dog's head shape and now i think i started too big but i am going to finish it out. WE never discussed price or size. should have but that window is past.
doing Victor is easy, i know him 3-d. i can say come over here i need to see something. Going from a photograph is twisted. There is no way i would do this for a living.
