Now my Dog will Sit! (Lego Dog Moc)

Recommended Posts

So meet Henry, King Henry the ninth. Such a good boy that I wanted to make a lego build out of him. Easier said than done! As an English Cream Golden Retriever he has a distinctive look when he has his mouth open, like hes smiling and it was important to capture that look perfectly and I think I nailed it. Next up was the eyes, I struggled here and ultimately settled on using white hub pieces to define the eye space and then went with the black 2x2 round tile with a brown brick structure behind and a little white. These dogs have really dark eyes and the 'eye' tiles really made him look way more cartony than he already is.

My fave piece- The Collar, I have been looking for a way to use them in a build and the newer ones that are a narrower width worked perfectly but also allowed a pop of colour that the build needed.

I couldn't decide if I was to build him out as a full body or just a bust, I am happy with how he is for now. Thanks for looking, its my first effort at sculpting an animal and was a really enjoyable process, I am welcome to any thoughts for improvements or tips in general on sculpting animals.

Looks great! One of the most creative builds I've ever seen!

That's a clever build you've got going on there! (And a happy looking dog, too - he looks such a sweetie! :pir-love:)

You mentioned that the collar is your favourite part, and I can see why, it really is perfect for the MOC. What part is it, out of interest? It doesn't look like one I've come across myself.

A very cute dog, and a great MOC! Just a suggestion, perhaps you could use a Part No: 38583  Name: Brick, Arch 1 x 2 Jumper to fill in the gap between the eyes?

It must be a newer thin DOTS bracelet: https://brickset.com/sets/41918-1/Adventure-Bracelets

Wonderful moc, I really love the nose and mouth area, a lot of expression! But I do think the eyes are a tad bit scary...
