Hi, MiniZoo ! Good to see you back Very Happy

Ohh! Such a delicate and beautyful model of a delicate and beautyful creature I love you 

It almost breaks my heart to know that this lovely species is critically endangered !
Let's hope that the zoos succeed to keep a healthy breeding stock, untill people get wiser  Rolling Eyes and we are able to preserve them in the wild ! silent

Looking very good cheers I think this Dama gazelle is interesting model to do… You did the long neck just the right length like this picture. Your gazelle looks very powerful, ready to escape!



I'm very happy you decided to show it for us.
I can't wait to see it finished bounce Smile

Delicate animal figures are always excelent ideas to 3d projects as long as materials are good enough to keep it in good shape. Very Happy
That is a great work and welcome back! Very Happy

I won't be making copies (this model is a commission so I must respect that). My aim is eventually to purchase a high detail 3D scanner with which to scan my sculptures & create 3D models that can be uploaded to Shapeways, but it is an expensive proposition!

Thankyou Jonesee for sharing the photograph - straightaway I see areas I could improve, but at 1:22 scale is tricky to get all of the detail I would like.

Hopefully will be painted very soon. Thankyou everyone for your compliments.

3D scans are fine and beautyful, but I think your hand made models are SO  charming and beautyful and unique !  Very Happy 
You ( and others) give them a special, personal look, that a scan can not obtain  Rolling Eyes 

No offence meant, of course !!!! It is only my humble opinion  Embarassed

Wonderful looking Dama Gazelle! I just saw these at the zoo a few weeks ago and was thinking it would be fun to see them in model form - great timing!

PostSubject: Dama Gazelle reworked and finished   Wed Apr 16, 2014 4:07 am

After some great feedback on my original sculpt I went back to the drawing board and did a new version of the Dama which I'm much happier with.

You can see a full story and photos of the making of the Dama here... https://www.facebook.com/JasonSmit.ClaySculpting

My next project is some new figures for Science & Nature who have placed a great deal of trust in me and I'm very excited to get started on it.
