Distant War Cries The Protector in Bronze and Clay of Distant War Cries left at foundry



I made a quick run to Northwest Artcasting in Bozeman Montana to drop off the clay of the Crow Indian and the Dog, to get a bid on the cost of producing the piece.. I leave for Texas tomorrow Afternoon so when I get back in about a week, I'll pick up the clay. I also had my first look at the raw bronze of "The Protector" in pieces. I'll see to it's coloring in February.

Distant War Cries - The Dog Gets Fixed



Had changes that I found out had to be made.. and I couldn't wait till I get back from Texas. So I spent a couple of hours in the studio modifying the dog a bit and changing his position on the piece.

Distant War Cries The Dog Grows Hair Last Day in Studio for a Couple of Weeks



Adding fur to the dog today.. It's really starting to breath.... This is my last day in the studio till the first part of February. I'll be heading to Texas to put on a 3 day workshop on the 30th, 31st, and the 1st. So I'll be back home the first week of February, but probably won't actually start back in the studio till second week of February. I will be videoing my workshop.. but probably won't put videos up of that till February..

Distant War Cries - Working on the head of the dog Visitors to my Studio



A Fire in our small town this morning. Working on the head of the dog. Trying to fix the head with detailing to the structure of the dogs face and ears. Had two wonderful Mormon Missionaries visit my studio. I love these guys for the sacrifice they make out of two years of their life for the purpose of passing on the teachings of our Father in Heaven. You just have to respect that.

Distant War Cries - Re-doing the Dog Armature


I realized the dog I did yesterday wasn't the right scale, so I improved my scaling and came up with a better guide. So I re-made the armature, almost an inch taller and longer. I believe I've got it nailed now..
