Hi, everybody! It is the first work in such style – a gift for the friend, the aficionado of dogs. With pleasure and attention I will listen to criticism.
By the way, last time I did boxes for colors, here and a definitive variant.

Looks good. I will admit though, I saw the picture and I was amazed at how accurately you had carved that white dog. :)

Outstanding job for an outstanding dog. I love dogs, obviously (see left). I’ve done a fair amount of burning and this is well done. If you’re begging for criticism, you might consider giving the eyes a bit of a glint with unburned wood. I actually prefer it the way it is but it might give you a bit more realism if that’s what you’re after. You probably know this already but my recommendation to burners is to treat yourself to a nice burner tool. I really fought with a cheap one and once I got a good one, I really saw what I was missing. Excellent work!

Great artwork. You have captured the dogs image really well. By the way that’s a pretty good looking dog, but I am having trouble figuring out what breed or mix it is. What type of dog is it?

Nice carving of the dog statue. It looks so real. Nice scrollwork too.
