….the Saluki dog! This breed of dog had been around for many centuries and is believed to be one of the world’s oldest dog breeds. The Saluki dog was/is used as a “sight hound” for hunting, hence its long legs and slim body.
I wanted to make a sculpture of a Saluki dog to accompany my Arabian horse collection. Here are some in-progress pictures (keep in mind that the sculpture is nowhere near done).
I will post more updates on its progress as it evolves into a realistic sculpt 🙂 And here are some pictures of real Salukis to give you an idea what it will look like later:
Today I decided it was time to start working on my first ever full Arabian costume! It will be a native-themed costume in black and blue, with lots of tassels and cowries.
I started out by sculpting the seat for the costume in Apoxie Sculpt. So I wrapped my poor PS Arab named Bakarat in some clear plastic foil to protect him from the clay
He’s looking a bit worried here
And then continued to pile up Apoxie until the seat was shaped properly.
I then waited for the clay to dry… *3 hours later* And with a bit of sanding and touching up in some places, the seat is now complete!
Later today I will hop by the local hobby store to get some black felt, beads, and other sewing supplies that I’ll need to make this costume.
