Wood Carvings by Mark Sheridan

Sleepy Hound

The sleepy little pup of the Trio is shaping up now.  It always amazes me that once you start putting a face onto a carving, even if it’s only the first rough “blocking” of the face, it changes everything about the carving.



This little one will have eyes that are droopily open ( I’m pretty sure that’s a carving term ) and looking up and to the side to see what all the howling is about.  Additionally, the right ear will be draped over a paw and flowing onto and over the dock…with just the tip of the ear in the “water.”  The left ear will be similarly draped over a paw and on the dock, but, in this case, the Howler will be sitting partially on the ear…another reason for that sideways glance.

    I sound like a broken record but I have to repeat myself. Amazing work and I love your imagination! 👍
