Pug Proportions

I’ve never sculpted the whole pug before, just the heads and faces. This is a work in progress. I’ve only roughed in where things go as I work on getting the proportions right. Proportions come first, then details. Why spend a lot of time on the paw’s pads and claws if it turns out the paw is too small to start with and needs to be sculpted bigger, right? So I ask all of you, how are my proportions so far?

Clean Castings

These are hydrostone castings from the new molds I made yesterday to keep as copies in case the molds tear or wear out. The all white material sort of dulls their expressions but you get the gist of them. I filled the molds with concrete this morning and those castings will be ready to show in a few days. The molds turned out really clean with clear details. Yeah!
