I much prefer to meet the subject in the flesh and take my own photographs, but if that is not possible then after a good long chat, I can work from photos you provide, especially if the commission is for a secret present!
The best starting point is to choose a pose you particularly like; curled up asleep, sitting up or dashing about.
You may well prefer to have a bronze but there are all sorts of other ideas. Your sculpture could be made of cast silver, aluminum or even cast iron.
The price depends on the size you’d like and the metal you’d like to have it made from.Process
