Latest commission, modelled in 1:30 scale, a Siberian Tiger - in real life these big cats measure an amazing 48" at the shoulder - this guy was based on a Tiger called Altai, a former resident of Cologne Zoo.
Below is a comparison with a Britains tiger which is 1:32 scale
The largest dog sculpture I've done yet. A 1:9 scale Flat
Coated Retriever. Modelled from a real
dog called Bramble, who I actually had the privilege of meeting in real life. He is a beautiful dog and I enjoyed sculpting
him very much, you’ll notice this is my first dog with it’s mouth open
too. The part I love the most when
sculpting is the detail, it was great fun doing the teeth and tongue!
My Brother, Jesse Knibbs (Trigger Happy Entertainment) took photos for me to work with, this is the pose the sculpture was based
Photographing the model was difficult, he's come out more brown than he really is. I've been told that when photographing darker figurines, it is best to use a dark background, so I'll be trying that out next time.
