I was commissioned just before Christmas to make a dachshund figure for someone. I didn't get him done quite in time, be he went to his new home last week. 

I am mostly happy with how he turned out.  Of course I can see where to improve next time, but it has been a fun learning curve, especially looking at anatomy that isn't a rat! (I have really only done rat sculptures!).  I'd like to have just redone the legs altogether though!  Roll Eyes

This is amazing!  My polymer clay skills are sooooo lacking compared to this!  And it looks just like my little Mandy-dog!  You didn't make it for me obviously but....  the puppy on my lap approves!  Cheesy

I had a mini freak out after seeing the thumbnail 'OMG! Is that a weenie? What is it!?' I love it, so cute. My weenie-obsession likes this very much.
