You Ain't Nothin' But a Sound-Dog

At long last the Houndeye or "Sound-Dog" is completed! He's fit, finished and ready for fun. Here he's waiting for challengers in the Three-Legged Race. 


I added tiger-stripes to emphasize his predatory nature. Stripes were made using masking tape and spray paint. The claws were spray-painted for extra shine; everything else was hand-painted with an added black wash to emphasize folds and wrinkles.

26" (66cm) tall at hump

The images don't really do justice to his coloration. You can see some of the flesh-likeness in this close-up of the back leg:

I especially like his profile. It has startled me more than once.

Time for walkies!

What a pleasure to finally uncover the eye once all the painting was done! For extra creepiness I added feelers around the outside of the eye. The feelers are pipe-cleaners which I tapered with a lighter flame.
