Image sized for the xmas card. Lost a little at the top, but I planned it that way. SH cards should come by Fri.; ours next week. *Few* What a weight lifted getting them done.
BTW, second year we've done them on Cyber Monday to take advantage to the extra discount: 60% off. Otherwise they regularly run a 50% off for xmas cards.

Now I work on the moon. Think I'll save that for tomorrow when Tina an I do art together. Then it'll be time for a test print.
May add more detail here and there, but I'll be adding pastel color to some of the critters so details aren't that important.

First error. Transferred the cartoon without flipping it first. I can adjust ~ reverse the castle and Oscar's ears. Then I can go with the flipped image.
I also smallered up the castle. It was too prominent.
I think it looks ok the reverse of how I first envisioned it. More room for my chop anyway. Or not. Doesn't matter. Maybe I'll incorporate the chop into the image.
Ok. Carve this.
And print this.

Board sanded and stained. When it dries I can transfer the cartoon.
Enlarged the cartoon to fill the page. Board is wider, so I can add trees on the sides.
I may smaller up the castle and moon, so there can be more sky.
Sassi (on left) can be smaller; border collie can be a little bigger.

That's it. I cut and pasted and squished in one more doggy bottom. No more critters, unless it's a bird or a turtle. ;- j
Lighter version for better detail.
Sassi on the left has to be smaller; border collie can be a little bigger. Otherwise I think it's ready to go.
Need to prep a board ~ probably 9"x12" if I have one. May have to order it, I'll see. No larger.

Generic still. Want to try Oscar, a better Gabby. Size them better. A better Meechee.
Size is variable. I can have more trees on the side, more stars in the sky. Then I can make it match the card shape. Probably longer, so I might add a dog or two more (or just more trees).
Starting to draw SH dogs.

Eusebius - Joe K's cat?
