This was a commission for *GrandmaThunderpants
, she asked me to make her mother's dog Nike in the style of my Mondkatze, this is a pendant but I took the photos before gluing the bail. *GrandmaThunderpants
referred to Nike as the "potato dog" because of her adorable chubbiness, and I looooved that XD so I kinda accentuated her potatoness. This pose lazily stretching was one of the references she sent me, she had that face of utter happiness and I tried to paint it, I hope successfully.
She told me that her mom loves tiki style, which was quite a challenge because we don't have anything tiki here lol. I worked with the photos she sent me and I noticed that they use a lot of wood and hibiscus flowers, so that's what I used for this design
I wouldn't say it's 100% accurate, but she liked it ^^
Technical stuff: All handmade by me with polymer clay, the wood grain was made with clay too. Acrylic paints were used to paint the moon and Nike.
Would you like to commission a Mondkatze or a Mondhund?
I'm accepting commissions for this, I can customize the moon with any combination of colors you want, or make it flat instead of textured, round, shiny, anything! If you send me reference photos I will also make an exact miniature copy of your own cat, dog or any cat/dog you want. You can read my commission info here

My boyfriend and I have made up tons of cute stories about us living in the Moon and creating our ideal world. Since we both love cats and identify a lot with them, eventually the term "Mondkatze" (Mooncat) surged - it's in German because we both study German and we like to speak in German between us to practice. This one is called "Mondhund" instead because it's a dog
