I've been trying to think of ways of making my dogs have anthropomorphic characters since the beginning of my project, I started by dressing them in clothes but it all seemed like a bit of a cliche. So now I'm toying with giving them make-up like embellishments. I'm finding this a more interesting approach so we'll see how it goes.
I've been wanting to have a go at etching for years but its one of those things I never got round to and actually ending up learning it by accident. I've used metallic gold thread to embroider through the paper and give this bloodhound some fancy eyelashes.
