Only thing I see a little wrong (since you want to represent it off of a specific individual not just the species in general) is the hindquarters look a little short, I would put a little more muscling onto the back. Then the stomach doesn't lineup with the neck beard, the hair on the beard surpasses the depth of the "barrel" (stomach area) on a bison. Otherwise, its a splendid figure and I can't wait to see it done.

Those are exactly my words  Applause Applause

Glad I could help Geospiza.
4U:  Embarassed I just know my N.A. wildlife, Yellowstone National Park is fairly close to where I live so we go fairly often and the bison are probably the icon of the park. One in particular (we named him Presley after Elvis since he had a lot of hair down to his ankles making him look a little like the guy) used to clog traffic when he would make semiannual travels down the West Road... he would just strut right down the median and not a single truck bothered him, he never charged one, and he just walked and walked and walked and walked and walked and... well you get the idea.

I think I remember hearing from someone a similar story. Perhaps it was the same one. By the way, you are so lucky to live in such proximity to this amazing American landmark.

Thank you, Zelvik.

I have just tonight finished painting the penguins. Here they are, male, with his neck extended upwards, and female:

Lastly, I am almost finished with my black rhino. Before I texture him, I was wondering if there are any details I need to correct, or if there is anything anyone thinks I should change him in any way:

Very nice models. My one suggestion would be that the bison cow is to blocky and large. That model looks very well suited for a bull, but a bison cow has a slightly more slender body, a less pronounced hump, and sometimes no beard at all. These are just suggestions. Keep up the great work.  cheers cheers Applause Applause

Thank you all for your comments.
As for what you said, Cattlecollector, I do agree, the typical female bison looks a lot like this:
[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]
[Not my image]
It has the characteristics you mentioned. The bison I am modeling this after lived in a zoo, so that might be the reason she looked different. I think she was 14 or 15 when she died.
There aren't many pictures on the 'net, but I linked to one earlier:

Esther (which is her name) is on the farthest right. I thank you, though for your feedback.   Wink
I do, however, think I see some areas which do need thinning out.

Everything looks great. I love the penguins and the gorilla. However, I do have some suggestions for the Rhino. First the shoulder should be moved back. Also the each pair of legs are too far apart, for instance the front leg pair is too far apart. Another issue with the legs is that the calves and knees need to be moved forward. Lastly the stomach droops a little too low near the front legs. Otherwise the rhino looks great.

Thank you, I the photo I was using for the pose was at an angle- I'll fix that easily.

I'm a bit apprehensive about fixing that, but I might if I feel confident enough one of these days. About how much narrower do you think they have to be?

Noted- I'll take care of that.

I'll look into that as well.

Thanks for the anatomy tips. I'm sure I'll do more this time than I did with my reindeer, even if it takes me another few months. Joking aside, I started this in October or November of last year. But I will be sure to attempt to fix my errors. Thanks again.

EDIT: Hey, Ethan, I did a quick slice-n'-dice with his front legs only. Is this more what you meant:

Looks good, yeah that is what I meant with the front legs. I made a black rhino my self, this is a link to the page http://sts-forum.forumieren.de/t8495p15-black-rhino-update , Harriet post some great front view pictures of a rhino that I think could be helpful to you on page 2. Sorry I am currently just too busy with exams to post the pictures here myself.

Thanks, I'll be sure to use the images.

I did a little as shown in the images, I'm not completely finished with the modifications, but I just wanted to share a few pictures.
Rhino:

I also made progress on my Western Gorilla:

I also started a Komodo Dragon, next to his Schleich counterpart:
[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]
He's going to be standing a little more erect in the front, I'm not sure about making his mouth open.  
Thanks again for all of the advice, positive comments, and reference pictures throughout my thread, I appreciate it a lot.

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:
[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]

I also finished another model, Varanus komodoensis.
[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]
[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]
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:
[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]
And with my rhino...
[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]

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.

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.

Thank you. I try to cover many of the "endless forms most beautiful and most wonderful".

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.
