PostSubject: Tibetan antelope. " Chiru "   Wed Jul 30, 2014 8:42 pm

I introduce you my new work. This is the figure of a strange, unknown but fascinating animal.
It is the Tibetan antelope known as "chiru". Represents a male of the species alert and walking.
The figure is made of a scale of 1:20.

The Tibetan antelope ( pantholops hodgsonii ) is a medium-sized antelope. Males are significantly larger than females. The coat is pale fawn to reddish-brown, with a whitish belly, and is particularly thick and woolly. The face is almost black in colour, with prominent nasal swellings that have a paler colour in males.
The males have long, curved-back horns that typically measure 54 to 60 cm (21 to 24 in) in length. The horns are slender, with ring-like ridges on their lower portions and smooth, pointed, tips. The fur of Tibetan antelopes is distinctive, and consists of long guard hairs and a silky undercoat of shorter fibres.

Endemic to the Tibetan Plateau, the Tibetan antelope inhabits open alpine and cold steppe environments between 3,250 and 5,500 m (10,660 and 18,040 ft) elevation. They prefer flat, open terrain, with sparse vegetation cover. They are found almost entirely in China, where they inhabit Tibet, southern Xinjiang and western Qinghai; a few are also found across the border in Ladakh, India.

Here are the photos of the unpainted figure . Hope you like it ! Very Happy

Hello Miguel.
This figure is amazing. Congrats for the wonderful work Very Happy  Applause 
I would be interested by one painted copy so I would like to know when you are going to do copies and how many one would cost. I ask that because I have to plan the figures releases. In fact, I'm also interested by other handmade models and I must know when I need money.
