Here is the reference sheet I created for Nax to go along with the sculpture. The winner of the auction will get ownership of this character along with the sculpture. I apologize for the watermark. Since the full reference sheet will be sent to the winner of the auction, I didn’t think it was fair to post the unwatermarked version online.
Done in Sketchbook Pro for iPad.
Ebay auction can be found here: http://www.ebay.com/itm/261597289207
Check out the sculpture of Nax
Wolf bottle cap necklace painted to look like Darcia from Wolf’s Rain. ;)
This does go for all animals, but since dog behaviour is my comfort zone and since most of these posts I see are of dogs being stressed or mishandled I’m going to focus on dogs. Anyone else who is more knowledgable on other animals expression of stress and behaviour are super…
I 100% agree with this post, please read it. There are a lot of “funny” posts made for popularity’s sake, commonly at the distress or sometimes even suffering of an animal. By knowing what’s not okay to be applauding, we can help stop ignorant owners from (often unknowingly) abusing thier pets for the sake of getting online followers.
Sometimes, pets get spooked. It happens, and you probably didn’t mean to do it. But deliberately redoing an intimidating action so you can film its results is NOT alright.
As a former dog trainer and current vet tech, it is my job to recognize stress signals in dogs. Images and gifs like the ones mentioned in this article have always made me cringe. I understand that a lot of it comes from a misunderstanding of dog behavior and body language. This post is a fantastic primer for understanding stress signals in dogs, I highly recommend everyone take some time to read through it.
I finally got these silly cat dragons painted. The calico is my favorite :)
Good gracious these are cute!
Meet Nax the Buttergi, a Pembroke Welsh Corgi and Red Spotted Purple butterfly hybrid. :D
This was a sculpture I created for EmilySculpts Skillshare class on creature sculpting. I had so much fun designing him and bringing him to life in sculpture form.
Nax is available on ebay right now! The winning bidder will also get ownership of this character design, along will a full ref sheet I created for him as well! Check out the auction here: www.ebay.com/itm/261597289207
Sneak peek! This guy is all finished up now. I’m working on setting up his eBay auction, and then I will be posting full photos and a link to the auction!
Nearly finished with the base for the Buttergi. Not the most exciting, but I wanted a more neutral base so it wouldn’t draw attention away from to character. Put a few blades of grass to hopefully give an idea of scale-Buttergis are very small! ;)
This will be the last work in progress post! I still have a few more touch ups to do, then I will post photos of the completed piece, along with information on the auction for it. :)
