The Poodle dog sculpture is ready for the foundry, but only after the client reviews the video and approves the final sculpture.
The sculpture took about 3.5 months to complete. The foundry will take another 8-12 weeks to create the molds, create the bronze casting and apply the patina.
The texture on the coat took much longer than I thought it would. The first 2-3 attempts I did not care for. Finally after a good night sleep I visualized the technique and applied it the following morning.
It was a pleasure sculpting Ike the Poodle; moreover, working with his owner was a pleasure.
