Gideon the dog- commission by LisaToms Gideon the dog- commission by LisaToms
Another picture of Gideon :)

----

This is a portrait doll for the lovely Fwup-Baby of their beloved dog Gideon, as a memorial of him Heart

I did all my best to make the doll as similar as possible to the real Gideon and I'm pretty proud of the result ^^

Head is sculpted of super sculpey, paws are resin casted from original sculpture, eyes are tiny hand made clear resin eyes, everything is painted with acrylic paint and sealed, body is hand sewn faux fur with some hand dyed touches to resemble the real colour, filled with pollyfill, sand and plastic beads for weight.

It's around 30cm long, so with this proportions, the head and paws are pretty small.

Hope you like it ^^ and thanks for watching!

I'm currently closed for commissions

Can I ask how you attach the head and feet to the fabric?
I'm trying to make an art doll atm and I've sculpted the face and feet but
don't know what do do next.

Any advise???

OMG that is sweet. <3 I've thought about commissioning someone for something like this of my Simba someday, but as she's a tabby cat there'd be a hell of a time getting her to match. LOL

But at first glance I thought the thumbnails were for photos of an actual dog. The frosting on the face came out very nicely!
