Both of these look phenomenal!

I guess you're only doing heads, but if you change your mind, it would be awesome to see that Irish Elk with its entire body.

Thanks! Megaloceros giganteus is one of my favorite ice age mammals, I sure want to make a whole animal, but I'll be probably in a smaller scale.

They are gorgeous! How long have you been modelling animals? Do you work for a toy company or something or do you do this for fun? I wish I could make sculptures like this. Well done, keep up the great work!  Applause

They look great. You could make a whole trophy line up! My one suggestion would be maybe close the boars mouth just a bit. They all look wonderful!

Thanks! Very Happy  I started modelling as a kid, then I stopped due to several reasons for many years, then I found about polymer clay, took me months to get my hands on it because I had to wait for my cousin from the US to bring me some (I couldn't find polymer clay at the time in Mexico and the postal service isn't really reliable Mad ). So I restarted in late 2013. Sure I love making animals but now I do this mostly to support myself.

Thanks for letting me know! I'm using Super Sculpey at the moment and I'm really going to try some more realistic animals. Yours look so great, but I really have a long way before mine look as good as yours xD

These are awesome! Those elk horns must've been so tricky.  I made by first antlers last year and I had to redo them several times before i got the look i wanted.  Being symmetrical with all those crazy curves is harder than people realize.  My favorite method is to sculpt them a little larger then sand them down to the right size.. plus if you sand in the right direction it gives a really nice realistic grooved texture.

Also, I've found the cheapest place for me to get Super Sculpey is Jerry's Artarama in Austin, TX.  I live in Philadelphia and when I order in bulk the shipping is free.  I don't know what their rates are to Mexico, but they seem like such a cool company that they'd have very fair rates::: http://www.jerrysartarama.com/Quick-Links/Shipping-Info-Revised.htm

Wow! They are amazing. You have a high qualification for doing job with a big company, that is, if you haven't.
I wish you would make the bodies as well. I believe they would be great!
