Thanks, guys. Yes, that'ts the 'fruit fly', actually a male mealybug. My cycads (which leaves overhang above view of the camera) are infested with them.

Thank you Saarlooswolfhound and Ana. I finally finished my Puma:

The paint was rather complicated, with all of the different browns, grays, tans, oranges, etc. but I think its recognizable at least. Also, here's my elephant. I'm planning on finishing him soon. I'm still not sure what to do for tusks. I don't want them to be huge, yet not too small while keeping them a modest size.

As well as this, there is an extra-curricular school exhibition I will be participating in this year which (for my group) is centered around Ireland, and so I will soon begin a few Irish species including red deer and a viviparous lizard.

Me too :) Verey very good cheers
I just have a little tips for you... if you don`t mind :)
I think that the face has to be a bit longer.
I used one of your photos to show what I mean :

I`m sorry, if  somehow I offend you with that...I don`t want to :)
Your puma look`s great :)
I realy love this animal

And you painted her very good :))
Maybe you need just to put this dark color on her face..around the mouth..which is very tipical for cougars :)

Thanks, everyone.
Costi, thanks for the input, I am in no way offended. I see what you mean in regards to the facial structure. Its a little late for me to fix it, however I'll see what I can do. The only pictures I used were of the same angle as the picture I posted at the top. As for the paint, I've been looking at it and I see areas in need of retouching. Mine is based on a specific individual which did not have the black markings, but thanks for the picture; I'll use it. Cat faces aren't my strong point, so its nice to have people on here who know more than I do in those areas.

Great puma Fortis cheers

I hope this model could inspire some manufactures to make more of their cats lie down.
In my experience that is what they do 99 % of the time Laughing

I agree, Papo's tigress with Cubs is the latest I know of, and a very nice model and I think from memory Schleich had a lioness lying down just a few years ago, but I've never seen a puma in this pose. So congrats on a nice model and sedate pose rather than the typical standing or roaring poses we see so often Applause

Thanks Costi, Susanne, Saarlooswolfhound, and MiniZoo.
I am now able to reveal my latest sculpture. I made it for a friend's birthday. When I gave it to her this morning, it was clear that she liked it a lot. It is a lined seahorse (Hippocampus erectus). The stones on the base are Bloodstone, the birthstone for March, Amethyst, the birthstone for Pisces, and a small Madagascan ammonite, which was more of a personal 'signature', being from me. The pictures were taken before I sprayed it with a clear, matte finish. I also cut and routed a wood base, stained with dark walnut with a high gloss finish, however I did not photograph it.

To see my friend as happy as she was made it well worth the time and effort I put into this.

Thank you, LeeAnn.
My elephant is finally done, though I actually had it finished two weeks ago, I've just been busy and hadn't had the chance to post it. The art show I entered it, as well as my other models and cane, was a huge success (until it rained) , with many positive comments on my pieces.

While baking, it actually lost balance and fell on the side. The repair job took a few days and involved the removal of the right legs, but I would say the fix is acceptable. On top of that, it had a little fall after the show was over and so is sitting on my desk waiting for me to re-attatch one of the tusks and fix a white mark on the one side. As well as my elephant, I have also planned and started three dinosaurs. Here's my first; Indominus rex:

Thanks :) Actually I had some other sculptures to do and so indy will not be finished for at least a week. But here are the ones I've missed posting:
This parasaurolophus is in 1:20 scale; almost too big for me to handle (and to think I was originally intending it to be 1:12).

Wonderful Very Happy I like both models, the parasaurolophus is so quiet and noble with a delicious painting drunken

I like the Gorogosaurspose of course but the thing I prefer is the head: It has flesh and it is so different from "skinny skins on bones" theropod head cheers Applause

Thanks, all Smile
Kiki, I don't like the skin-and bone look, either. I can't think of any modern animal which has fenestrae as visible as those seen in some theropod drawings.
Maty, I use a combination of Super Sculpey Firm and Super Sculpey, but more recently I've been using the regular Super Sculpey without mixing.
Here's an American Crocodile I've been doing:

He's based on one which used to live at a local zoo but was sent back to a zoo in Florida after he outgrew his exhibit. I don't think I've seen this species in toy form yet.

Also, a Columbian mammoth.
I'm considering dropping a constant scale with my modern animals as to reduce space issues and so I can make smaller animals with less difficulty. The prehistoric animals I want at 1:40 but I don't think I'll use a consistent scale for modern animals anymore.

I'll also be going on vacation soon where I'll visit Disney's Animal Kingdom, meaning I'll have inspiration and photos for more animals upon my return.
