The body and the painting of the babirusa are also great! Just the legs are a little bit to short Wink .
The tortoise lookd good, is it Lonesome George?

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...

I thank all of you for your kind comments.

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
