Made by Sophia Morrison
My nephew got his first dog. It is a chocolate Lab but I wanted to give it some distinctive design beyond realism. The designs were collaged over a Styrofoam armature with plaster bandage strips for added strength, and joint compound to add a smooth finish.
I didn’t use any pattern and just trusted my sense of proportions to design the armature.
The cat was designed in a similar manner.
You can see some of my abstract sculptures as well on my website that also includes paintings. See: sitkastudios.faso.com.
