While sculpting black animals is easy enough,
photographing black needle felted sculptures of dogs is not.
Standard Poodle with lots of expression.
I was asked to get the upward looking eyes.
I used some of his real fur for the exterior coat treatment.
This is Zoo.
The real dog belongs to the granddaughter of a dear friend.
The sculpture was her recent birthday gift.
I only had 3 photos to go by since it was a surprise.
I did work some of the real fur into the outer coat treatment though!
