So this was another sculpture using the gorgeous combo of Cernit White and Doll White.

I was planning on making a sleek, elegant, realistic dolphin along the same lines of the sea lion I’d already done.

It didn’t want to hear it.

I was working with a reference photo at a slightly odd angle but I could have shaved it down so the tail looked like it was farther in the distance, and thinned out the head and torso so everything was a bit more in proportion…

But how could I do surgery on its personality, when it was grinning at me so cheerfully?

So here is my cute little perky dolphin instead. I’ll make a sleek one some other time.

Enjoy. πŸ™‚

    Smart woman to not try to force what YOU want it to be on what IT wants to be! Love the musculature on it.
