PostSubject: The MOJÖ entelodont, repainted by Costa !!!!!   Thu Aug 28, 2014 12:30 pm

Entelodonts much have been awesome creature, and no wonder I loved the one from Mojo from the moment I saw him, - except for the booring, grey colour  Rolling Eyes

When I saw the models that Kosta(Costa) had repainted, I thought : YESSSS! Here is the man who can bring my entolodont to life  cheers
Ohh, if only he will do it  bounce

It turned out that not only is Kosta a great artist with many talents, he is also an extremely generous and kind person ! Very Happy  Very Happy
At first he did not want any payment, but we agreed that I send him a few of my doubles, as payment, I thought  Laughing
But when I got the entelodont, it was in a box together with lots of wonderful models, - no less than THREE repaints, and a lot of other goodies  cheers

I will show the others, too, but this topc is dediceted to THE ENTELODONT par excellence  bounce  cheers

Instead of lavishing superlatives on you, I will leave you to enjoy  these pictures Wink

First Kosta e-mailed me a pen drawing :

And then a painting . Thay were both in the parcel, and I hastened to frame it and hang it next to my work place :

To show the colours as real as possible, this picture is taken outdoors :

But the light keeps changing outdoors at this time of the year, so the rest are taken with a daylight bulp indoors  Wink

That's incredible, a new figure was born! Shocked It is great to see Mojo figures repainted, often their manufacturing painting don't give justice to their sculpting. cheers
I must say that a pattern like that could be more expectable to the hyaenodon but it was an excelent idea to put it in a daeodon instead. We only know fossilized bones so any pattern is more than acceptable. I hope Mojo, make a little investment in their painting and provide us a variation of these prehistoric mammals with a more attractive color. This Kosta superb work is a good example, no doubts. Very Happy
Repainted like that it almost looks an andrewsarchus but we can see immediately that it is a Kostalodont instead! Laughing flower

wow affraid
Susanne you are great. Applause
Thank you for this wonderful presentation.
Nobody else can do it better than you !
This, what You wrote for me and for the history of our communication... wow..made me soo happy !
The colours look real with your wonderful photos. cheers
And soo many photos :)))) I love how you show every detail.
This shows to me that you like the result of my job and this is the most important part of the task that You set to me :)
And thank you everybody for your nice words, I`m happy that you like it :)
Mister Rogério :), You are absolutely right. The pattern looks more like hyaenodon. When I sent the picture of my project to Susanne, We both decided that will be interesting to see the Entelodont not so realistic..with this pattern ..and I`m happy that you like it too Wink)
Greetings
Kosta monkey

Laughing Laughing Yes ! I asked Costa if he could make the entelodont really crazy looking, - well, not green with purple dots, but... Laughing

But I am not so sure the colours are completely unrealistic !
Look at wild piglets, they have stripes and dots, - and look at the Red River Hog scratch
Actually I believe that this colour is much more realistic than just grey cheers

Imagine that the big cats were extinct except the later species like lions and pumas, - we see the kittens have faint spots, but would never, ever dream of patterns like a jaguar or a tiger Very Happy

IMHO, we have to be careful about concluding about colours and fur from the animals that live these days.
Had we not seen frozen mammuths, we might not have know that they were brown/reddish, perhaps not even wooly - we might think they looked like grey, almost naked elephants Wink

He is beautiful but a little bit crazy about the color ... HOWEVER, the difference makes the figure very amazing.

Congrats sunny

Susanne and Kosta, I was not taking any conlusions about the realism of the color once it is useless. Who would ever finding a peacock skeleton know the beautiful and colorful animal it is?
I was talking about what is usually used in paleoart but it is quite boring when everyone do similar things. I do like this work as I said and Susanne's note about piglets is very interesting. Often youngsters, are the first way to understand how looked like their ancestrals or relatives. Very Happy

I love this "discussion", - yes, who would ever think of a peacock looking like it does, from seing the skeleton ?scratch
Think of all the mistakes about the look of the Dodo, which lived so recently Shocked
Another example, imagine we only had the giraffe or only the okapi, and the other one extinct ( shudder!!!) - how would we figure out the look of the other one from a skeleton ? Very Happy

I missed this excellent topic, but now I am watching the pics for the tenth time in a row. drunken

I love the story and I like very much the paintings Cool Tigers and leopards are very colorful, entelodonts were not boars so it is a very interresting way to look at the animal. And the job is fantastically well done Applause Applause Applause

I don't normally venture into this part of the forum but I'm very glad I did. Congratulations Kosta on a great repaint, but particularly for being so kind to Suzanne who is so generous with her own time and support of STS. She is very encouraging to the artists with her kind comments and thoroughly deserves to be spoilt in this manner!
