Labrador with a Biscuit Statue

The last couple of Lab sculptures I made leaned toward realism so I felt like cutting loose with this one. It’s a work in progress. I need to let it sit for a bit while I decide what needs to be tweaked before smoothing out all of the tool marks.

I’ve also noticed that when casting in concrete as opposed to painting them with acrylics, much of the facial expression is revealed by the shadows the creases and wrinkles cast.
