Fat MinPins #001-003
I had a blast last year making the Fat Animal Magnet as Christmas presents, but it’s taken me forever and a day to finish getting them all up on the blog. That’s what I get for painting 50ish things at a time, I suppose! 😉
Anywho, these cute little doggos were done as a portrait of a friend’s miniature pinscher. They have cropped ears and a docked tail, but I’ve got another natural version half-done. It’s a little alarming how many ‘new’ Fat Animals are still waiting in the wings…
I need to stop casting new ones and just finish up the ones I have!
Fat Dogs #001-003 (#001 not shown)
With all the cats in the Fat Animal Magnet parade, it was only time before someone requested a dog!
A Carolina Dog (or American Dingo) is a generally dog-shaped dog, so sculpting one of these gave me a wide range of other breeds to play with. It is a fat dog after all, so most of the breed specific body types go out the window. 😉
Sadly I gave away the magnet before I took the final pictures (I overestimated what I could accomplish by Christmas), but you can see the dog hanging out in the group shots below. Only one of the dogs came back home with me after the holiday season and that one (Canis Major) has a place on my fridge… so time to cast more canines!
Fat Corgis #001-003
I have a lot of favorites when it comes to the Fat Animal Magnets, but the corgis are definitely up there! 🙂
As soon as I came up with the idea of doing these magnets, I knew corgis had to be somewhere in the list. Not only is it one of my brother’s all time favorite animals, but it’s just so darned cute!
I tried to be better when it came to picking colors with these guys than I was with the corgiloafs, and the realistic ones are actually based on Pembrokes (and not Cardigans).
Except for the flaming one… I blame Blizzard for that one. 😉
