This is gorgus! She is so sweet :3 One thing I think I should mention, however, their not dog! Their Fu Lions, found outside many Chinese buildings, the male with his mouth open holding a ball, the female, has her mouth closed and is often holding a baby.
She's so cute! And gorgeous. She's really rocking those colors and that fierce expression. I always think foo dogs are way too hard to design. On the one hand, I want to base them off of Chinese statues of them, but on the other hand, I want to design one that makes a little more.....sense, lmao. It's really hard trying to do both at the same time. At least for me anyway.
OMG!!! I think I just developed a new favorite sculpture of yours! The paint job also is just amazingly gorgeous, I really love the black with vibrant details, while it is very realistic mixed with Asian, there is also something Egyptian about her to me. I LOVE the defensive face you gave her, mama tiger indeed!
