I just finished the Scottish terrier today - it measures 5.5" x 8.5" - my client is going to frame it in a 7"x11" custom frame. The picture next to it is from a "real" Scottie - I altered the photo to make it look like an oil painting so I could better design a pattern for it. I know it doesn't look exactly like the original - I added an eye - it just didn't look right covering up the second eye completely, and I didn't make any neck on my dog - it's strictly head! Also, as you can tell, the angle is a little bit different, too. Mine is a bit more shaggy, too. I got kind of carried away. LOL. Oh well - all that matters now is that my client likes it.
I'm SOOO glad she's done - yes, it's female - my client had a female Scottie named "Dolly" who lived 14 years and this is done in memory of her. I am really pleased how she turned out - I was worried for a bit, not having ever done anything this shaggy. I used the wheatearing technique for the shag and layered it - some tucking into the first layer, some laying directly on top - using both 1/16" and 1/8" width paper. I also used black, pearlized black, and charcoal black colored strips. The picture doesn't show well the disparity of colors, but believe me it looks really nice in person.
