Hi all, I own two long haired Chihuahuas, Saidie and Tobby and also am trying to make a Chihuahua mould to cast as a garden ornament. This is the one I have made of a short haired one and thought this would be the best place to ask if it looks like a Chihuahua.

What do you think?

Since you did ask for opinions, I'm going to say brush up on dog anatomy.
Even if you are going for a cartoony look, there's just some features that look better.
For starters, I'd make the limbs thicker near the base. That forelimb is what stands out the most to me.

Good work on the head/face/ears.

Thanks a lot for the great response!

To answer a couple of questions.. the size of the model is roughly the size of a small Chihuahua, and I live in the UK.

I did model it on Sadie, one of our chi's, when she sat still anyway.



Although that's an old pic She's now just over two years old and pregnant.

I wasn't 100% sure as I had to make a shot haired one as making and casting a long haired one would be a nightmare.

Thanks for the feedback and I will be sure to post a picture up once I have finished the mold and casted it in concrete.
