Finished Pendant

Inspiration strikes when you least expect it.

I was perusing through Facebook and came across a picture of the baby hippo Fiona.

I started with a rough sketch

I’m on a cute critters kick, so what could be better than a baby hippo pendant!

Refined it in a drawing program

My favorite part of the hippo are it’s cute little ears!

And split the drawing up into layers to give the piece more dimension. I sweat soldered it all together and gave him a bit of personality.
