Finally, here are more pictures of my repainted New Ray pronghorn. The sculpture is excellent with thin legs and accurate features that made it rewarding to paint. I had a delightful surprise: my inexpensive raw umber paint has a (usually annoying) graininess to it, and I realized that it was a great match for the texture of the animal's actual horns! When I was little, the zoo had a single male pronghorn- he would sometimes approach us at the fence and we would feed him leaves. I was quite impressed to be so close to such an animal with its huge dark eyes, so it remains special to me.

The set of three:

Now, if only we had some females for a proper herd. queen

Thanks Christophe, LeeAnn, Simone, and Jonas!

Christophe: It's surely easier planning repaints than finding the time. I think this one is worth it, though. I still have catching up to do posting finished projects...


Oh! I meant to include this with those photos. I hate to waste paint if I mix too much, so I made this little sketch with the leftover colors from one of the pronghorns:

Great work! I've been wondering what model you used in your contest entry. Needless to say, he's a real improvement.

Thanks for the comments.

Rogério- Yes, it was quite special for me. Though I hope to see them in the wild some day, being close enough to touch is a different experience.

Jonas- This was a bonus because when you're as slow as me, everything usually dries on the palette. silent Laughing

Thank you Kosta, Bryan, and Christophe.  Smile

Bryan, here is the comparison you ordered:

(The colors are a little funny- I kept waiting for better lighting but when I finally made the pictures the camera was accidentally set for fluorescent light- I thought I could correct it on the computer, but...)

I think they are both great figures, yet they seem so different! The New Ray is quite gracile while the Mojo is stockier. I think you could find pictures of individuals reminiscent of either model. The Mojo buck's horns have a more natural shape/curvature.

Thank you very much for the pictures, Andy! cheers The Mojo one looks very odd, when I compare it with the New Ray pronghorn, but I thought the same about New Ray's when I've seen it for the first time. Here you can see what a difference the paintjob can make! Very Happy

Another long-term Safari toob project: the backyard birds:

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

I was excited when these were released, as I'm more familiar with these species than most of the animals in my collection. The original paint on these is very simple, but the brightest red, yellow, and blue colors are appealing so I may try to retain some of that as base colors.

Here's the finished pileated woodpecker:

Like the original, it represents a male with a full red crest and cheek stripes. I completely painted over the matte black of the figure and added a subtle brownish sheen to the wing feathers. It isn't varnished in these pictures, but I plan to put a bit of gloss on the eyes that should add more life to them.
