I'm currently trying out some new things and decided to test myself on polymer clay and sculpting/clay modelling. In ths case, I tried to sculpt a male Akita Inu.
It was quite a challenge and I didn't succeed at all (the head needs to be rounder - and I got a few tips after finishing from other Akita Inu owners. I couldn't use my pup beause she's too young and her head is not fully pronounced yet. She's got this typical puppy look! xD). But for the first try, I guess, it's not that bad and I learnt A LOT and hope that I'll be able to make it look better next time! :)
The colouring was also challenging and I seriously had no idea how to start. So, what to do? Just painting without thinking xD
I hope you like it, anyway!

FYI, tools used:
• armature:
tape
3 different sizes of wire
wire cutter

• modelling:
polymer clay
sand paper for mopping up
approximately 15 layers of acrylic (slightly added shadows and lightpoints to accentuate muscles and alike)
colour chalks

• finishing:
gold dust
bronze powder
gloss varnish for tongue+eyes
pearl gloss for nose
matt finishing

*XMoonlight-SonataX made an amazing sculpting of my young Akita Inu girl. You definitely need to check it out! It's just perfect! Thanks again ^^

This turned out really well! Especially for a first try.
I like how realistic the face came out and the fur looks amazing.
