Sculpting Hares

I have recently been commissioned to sculpt some hares. This is a model I have made. Whenever I am commissioned to make a subject that I have not studied before, I need to have plenty of time in advance. This is because I have to spend a considerable amount of time drawing and making models. It's a necessity. The more time I take to to do this work, the better the final piece will be. This took me over 7 hours, over two days. After day one I needed a second opinion and fresh eyes. I had to sleep on it, and then come back to it the following day, to make the changes I felt it still needed. Prior to this I spent 4 hours drawing, over the course of a couple of weeks.

I am enjoying this commission, as I have wanted to sculpt hares. They are very popular, and I can appreciate why. For me it is there lovely large ears.
