Looking at the show pictures posted, I am wondering do artists look like their creations.??

Often one is sent emails with the owner and dog looking alike and some can be remarkable.

I am not sure if I look like my dog but I think she influences the look of my bears...

bear_rolleyes I do think some artists look like their bears but not sure if I look like my bears - I think I do in a small way  bear_wacko  Oh yes, there are plenty of people who look like their dogs and having been in the dog showing world I became pretty good at telling the type of breed a person would have, great fun! I've had quite a few different breeds but don't think I looked like any of them - though I think I could have passed as one of my Old English when I had the Afro hair style  bear_grin
The two breeds I have now? I don' think so!!  bear_wacko  bear_grin

Oh yes Lynette  bear_happy  I have definitely noticed this in the past (although it's so subtle you can sometimes barely put your finger on it )
I think it's because people are subconsciously re-creating the face proportions / features which they are most familiar with ie. those they see
in the mirror every day of their lives  bear_smile For those that think it's nuts ; choose a long past thread and run the cursor up and down over the
avatar (and under) photos  bear_original
Plus ; I've noticed that some artists are more likely re-creating their dog's looks in a subtle way (if you know what they own ) - probably some cats too !
Perhaps that's one reason why we all have such wonderfully diverse styles ?  :lol:

Hmmm. Most of my bears are BOYS! And I think they look like boys, but I don't think I do. Although, I agree with what Kelly said about Paula and her bears and I think my bears are happy like me too.
I have been told that my doll sculpts look like me. Beth Savino of the Toy Store in Toledo even said she saw me in my Teddy Roosevelt sculpt! "Something in the mouth and chin," she said. I thought, "Yes, I see it --we both have a mouth and chin!" bear_laugh

I have been changing my bears, must mean that I have a split personality- must explain a few things.
Paula, I could easily tie you up with your bear. You both have the same friendly smile and both  sparkle.

Maybe we should have some more pictures up and let the rest judge.

Bears and artist ???????

My bears have huge eyes which I've always coveted.  Unlike them, I have little, teensy-weensy bat eyes; tiny little dot eyes, and blonde eyebrows and eyelashes.  God bless mascara!  I think my bears have the innocent, child-like wide eyes I wish I had.

Your joke about tying up; makes me wonder what you do with your bears bear_whistle  And, yes, I do think you look like your formally dressed bears. You are a dapper dresser  bear_thumb

P.S. Are you as thin as your photo?

Oh, this topic is too funny!
My bears look like they're on Mars, so I guess I look like them ..or they look like me.  :crackup:

It feels good to laugh.

Had to edit for spelling.  And I didn't even use big words! bear_wacko

:crackup:   Yep, I began to notice my bears and my own proportions were beginning to look a little too chubby  bear_rolleyes  bear_laugh   

And I can certainly see the influence in some artists' bears with the dogs they own  bear_thumb

aww. . . shucks. . . caught me!   :redface:  :redface:  :redface:

I've been told many times that my bears looked like me, and my mole island bears with their wide furry snouts were often compared to my mustache - and to my cocker spaniel buddy.  these days I'm doing bears with long, thin snouts, I'm thinner and I've got beagles, so go figure. . .

erp. . . how thin is that?  not too, I hope. . .but yeah,  those are current photos.  it's those 2 beagles and those 2 hour-long walks we go for every day - at ramming speed!  :crackup:

Oh - I don't really know.  My dogs, bears, and I do have one thing in common . . . bangs (or fringe).  That's one 'trait' that I gave my bears from the beginning and haven't changed in 11 - 12 years.  So all my furry friends and I go around with hair in our eyes.

Ummmmmm, I've always had mongrel companions with BIG noses  bear_laugh  bear_laugh  bear_laugh Does that say something about me then? I would say that Ralphie has been a big influence on my bears, they definitely have a look of him about them! bear_wub  bear_wubIMG_1906.JPG

Just reading through these and  bear_grin  bear_grin  bear_grin tying Paula up with her bear. This is called the "package deal" you not only get the bear you get the artist as well. :crackup:  :crackup:  ( no funny comments here)

Laura spelling, had to write out comments yesterday by hand and was rather lost without having a spell check in my head.

Ha!  I don't think my bears look like me at all.  They do encompass what I like though...shabby vintage.  Hmmmm.  Maybe I look shabby vintage.  Come to think of it....... heehee

Warmest bear hugs,  :hug:
