Cow and Wee Cow (b. 27 & 29 July 2009)

The large cow came first on Monday afternoon. I really liked the way she turned out, although the ears and horns proved a little challenging. Getting the noses right has been so important - unless you're careful, they all tend to look like pigs!

I think I did a better job with the calf, which I worked on a few days later. Although the markings need to be refined more, I love the horn buds, and including a mouth under the nose really makes it more recognisable as a cow. Overall, I like the idea of doing two sizes of beasties - medium and small - which allows for mother/baby options.
