refrence sculptures - Gift of Folly

I was tidying up my studio and came across these sculptures I made while I was working on the painting 'Gift of Folly'. Making small sculptures to assist in the drawing process has become common practice for me now. 

The anvil was so I could draw anvils in multiple angles. 

The bulldog character is a reference to the antagonist from the Tex Avery directed cartoon Bad Luck Blackie* - ONE OF THE GREATEST cartoons ever made!

*Just to clarify the title, it is a not a racial cartoon. The title refers to the main character, a black cat, who defends a kitten by bringing bad luck to the bulldog character by crossing his path and causing objects - including an anvil - to fall on him from the sky.
