Deerhound

This was commissioned as a secret Christmas gift so I couldn't post before now. Deerhound. These dogs are hard, especially working from just photographs. But I keep getting offered these commissions so what can ya do?
Merry Christmas all of you

Re: Deerhound

That's fantastic. Always loved deerhound's but never had a house big enough.
You have caught the expression well 👍
