I have here pictures of my Rhinoceros after my modifications. He no longer is leaning to the one side.



And my Komodo Dragon:


I also have an important question to ask. Now that Imageshack is only available to paid subscribers, I must choose a different hosting service. Does anyone use Flickr to host pictures? How is it?
I just switched to Photobucket.

Thank you, Jonas.

I just yesterday and today finished painting my newest two figurines!
Here they are; first is my Western Lowland Gorilla (Gorilla gorilla)



With the Schleich Gorilla:


I also finished another model, Varanus komodoensis.


I don't believe my Komodo dragon is anywhere near my best work, but I thought I'd post it anyway.

Here's pictures of my zoo so far:

And with my rhino...


I will bake the rhino soon, as he is nearly finished (I just have a few wrinkles to emphasise). Once I'm finished with him, I will pay more attention to my bison, and begin an andean bear. Lastly, I started a babirusa, but I have no pictures of it yet.

Thanks. I was going to use Flickr- but I need a Yahoo account. I had no problem with that until I realized I was required to have a mobile telephone number. I have no plans on ever owning one, so I couldn't use it. Photobucket works just fine, though.

Thank you Philter, SyLoBe, and HK. Seeing all of my animals together is one of the reasons I like to make lots of different species. I also took a quick picture of my now baked babirusa. After inspection, I'm not quite happy with his feet. I might replace them; any thoughts on that?

Usually I'm not, but because of the weather here, I stayed at home nearly all day the entire week. Monday it snowed six inches, last night there were a couple more (and a lot of ice), and this weekend there are predictions of a foot of snow! I'm going to have a lot of free time on my hands if this keeps up, but at least the groundhog was right this year.  Very Happy

UPDATE 2/11/14

Hey, here's my andean bear in progress. I am making her based off the one at the Smithsonian NZP. I'm also going to start a Galapagos tortoise tomorrow in celebration of Charles Darwin's 205th birthday.

How is she?

I just today started and finished the painting of my babirusa:
Here are some pictures:



I'm not quite happy with the way the feet turned out, and I also don't think I did my best on the forelimbs. The skin texturing, too, should have had more time devoted to it. Here's my bear as well. I'm going to completely change the face of... well, the face, as it does not yet satisfy me.

We had three or four inches from the lstorm last week, about 8 or 10 from the one Wednesday night, another three or four from last night, and three inches predicted tonight and perhaps tomorrow night. My point being: I have plenty of time for sculpture.  Laughing

Thank you, both.
Over the weekend I had started a Galapagos tortoise, based on the Hood Island Tortoise, Chelonoidis nigra hoodensis. I plan on someday making another tortoise to go alongside it, but of a different subspecies, perhaps C. n. porteri, with a domed shell.

And here's a picture of my rhino baked. I'm currently painting him now.

Thanks. I know about the legs, I would have fixed them If I had known about it earlier. The one in the picture I was using had its elbows bent giving the illusion of short legs. I'll probably do another sometime, as there are numerous things I don't like about this one. The tortoise, is not meant to be Lonesome George. I thought it would be a good idea to make a less popular subspecies, as George was an Abingdon Island tortoise, and mine is a Hood island tortoise. There isn't much difference between them, though.

He's finally finished!



I don't like the non-textured area between the underside and flanks, but there's not much I can do about that now. Another piece of good news- I've, after a while of waiting, made it possible to use these in a school project. Now, I just have to finish my bison pair...

Yes, you may.  Very Happy 

The kind I use is Super Sculpey, original, however for some models I mix in a little of the Super Sculpey Firm to make it more firm.

So young and so talented, I really find your rhino a very wonderful piece. I am sure you'll improve a lot, mainly with folded areas and the different details and textures we can find in a rhino body. Though, what we can see is impressive and your rhino has a powerful looking that I like a lot. cheers

Thanks both of you. Roger, as for what you said, I have improved more than I had expected over the past year alone. It gets frustrating though, as I worked out a new texturing technique before I even finished painting my rhino.   Laughing 
Here's the tortoise, on which I was working on skin texture:

Here are my bison and bear as well:

I'm just about ready to texture the bison, I just have a few more adjustments to make, one of which is the first and last digits on each foot. Does anyone know just how to make a woolly texture? I've been trying various methods, nothing seems to be quite right.

I am sorry, I didn't want to cause you any kind of frustration. Your work is formidable and I am not even able of making a constructive comment, much more a great sculpture as you do. pale
I mean only that your figure would improve with more visible folded parts and with texture, yours look great, but this technic would probably work better in an elephant. elephant
If you notice, while yours looks more or less uniforme, you will see that in the picture below of a real rhino, areas like shoulders and neck have different textures, in fact it is more wrinkled in neck area than in shoulder area, for example.
ABout folds, I mean the bottom of the neck and brest, and maybe also between sholder and leg. Less plain flanks would also help.
But the work is magnificent.
Your great bison, will also look surely better, if you find a deep contrast between woolly and sparse fur areas. Very Happy
