No it doesn't make it weird. i actually prefer the exposed bone on Quackers as well, but I think that is because it seems to have more of a contrast because the base of the pony is white instead of pink. The pair are actually up for auction right now via eBay
Yeah I felt like a jerk after I posted both my posts, because then I took the time to actually read through things and found the auctions. I don't get paid for another week, so I don't think I'll be able to do the auctions (they'll probably be up too high for me to even bid by then), same goes for the commission prices.
If, however, I had the money for either -- I'd be all over it. I love your work, the detail and skill is so visible. I'd love to own one of your works, so hopefully you're still putting stuff up for auction in another year.
