WIP Critique In memory of an old friend

    Started a little light conversion on Richie's cracking little dog in armour sculpt as seen here
    https://www.planetfigure.com/threads/knight-dog.311440/

    We had a mastiff called Garm who's crossed the Rainbow Bridge now but was a wonderful friend while we had him, so I thought with a little work I'd make him a mastiff.

    All I've really had to do is work a bit on the face and change the tail.

    That's a very good idea to honor a friend's memory, no matter what the genre. Lovely piece. Good job so far.

    Hi Steve,
    I love where you are going with this, making him your own and a tribute to your old friend. I think it is a great idea also that you are going to put your family coat of arms on the shield.
    Here's to the Drew guardian "Garm the Thick"(y)
    cheers

    Lovely thought there Steve. I got one of these little fellas from Ritchie too, and had it in mind to copy the colours of my Vallhund, who is lying across my feet as I type this. Looking forward to seeing how Sir Garm comes out - looking good so far(y)
