Some recently completed commissions. Believe it or not, dog art is considered a popular genre of contemporary art so I show them in this forum. Also, you guys know my other work. Thanks for looking.

You know Michael, these are so cool and every time I see them I am struck with an interest to watch you create them. I know it would remove some of the mystery and I am happy to see the finished product as you have shown them.

I am curious, though, what one looks like off center. Like a 3/4 or side view. There appears to be depth - I am assuming in real life it is foreshortened from the front view. These are great! :thumbsup::thumbsup:

These are great, Michael, and definitely better by the dozen!

Michael, how long does it take you to complete one? They are amazingly realistic. Do you do people too?

Thanks again.

Dave, each piece is about 5-6 inches deep. The illusion of depth is created by basic perspective techniques.

Nikki, it takes about two to three weeks to create a custom dog sculpture.
I have created sculptures of people. They are simply more time consuming and I haven't yet found a way to gain higher prices for my work.
