PostSubject: Clouded leopard, second try   Thu Jan 13, 2011 5:35 pm

Ok, so I did a second one...

I´m happier with this one. The sculpt I think is better than the last one, and I´m pretty happy with the head :)

I cinda like the colour, But I couldnt realy get the "live" feeling to it that I wanted.
It has some flaws, like the patterns look a little weird, and I think I made to many black spots on the legs, but I can always fix that later.
I did however make a big misstake that I wont be able to fix. I forgot to put wire in the tail, connecting it to the body, wich means that the tail is very fragile... Well, you learn from your misstakes, right Wink

Of course, I didnt get the eyes the way I wanted, close up they look a little funny, but for now I´m gonna leave it as it is.

And to be honest, I accually like him Embarassed Very Happy

Here´s some pics









With his older brother


With a schleich cousin


With a little suroundings

Ohhh, Anna, it is beautyful I love you Very Happy

The first one was beautyful also, but this one is gorgeous.
I think the one who makes the figuere can always find some small thing that they would like otherwise (Ana maybe the exception Wink ), - just see the professional animals designs from Schleich, Safari, Papo etc, - always something.

But in this case I think you are the only one wha can see it Laughing

A really successful model! It´s fantastic cheers cheers cheers .The first model is also very nice, just maybe the beard should be omitted.
A very impressive work, Anna. May I ask again how much time do you need for a model? For me it always takes an eternity since I've usually not much time.

I agree, the second one is even better. cheers

By the way, I stand myself corrected because I thought the first one was a Snow Leopard that's why I mentioned that it was better than the Safari and Bullyland's counterparts. Nonetheless, whether it is a clouded or a snow leopard, definitely consider a masterpiece. cheers

Thanx guys Very Happy

@Susanne; You are so right, when you do a sculpt you always find some detailes that your not happy with, but overall I like it a lot, so I decided to just be happy with it as it is Laughing

@Sumo; Glad you like it Very Happy

@Ana; It means a lot that you like it, ´cus you are realy the queen of customs. Cant wait to see yours, I know it will be astonishing cheers

@SyLoBe, Skysthelimit, Lucky luke, Philter4, Christophe; Thank you, I´m soo glad you guys like him Very Happy

@Willy; Thanx Very Happy Haha, I think you would still buy new, `cus you can never get enough animals Wink

@baltimore zoo; Thanx. I agree with you Laughing

@Harriet; Thank you soo much cheers

@Yurumi; Yes I should probably have skipped the beard on the first one. The reason I put it there was that the animals I looked at when I made it looked like it had a beard, but it didnt turn out so good Rolling Eyes

It takes about 5-10 hours for me to make a aculpt. This one took me about 15 hours of work (about three days) But when I start on an animal, I can hardly stop until it´s finished, so I use al my spare time on it, and usually stay up all night, just to finish it Laughing

@Lasersword; Thanx Very Happy Aha, ye I can understand why you could think it was a snow, the colour is quite similar.

Custom figures are always the best! If I was able to make a figure I surely will think that it was the worst but at the same time the best!confused
Congratulations for your talent and you are very happy, you can choose always the animal you want! cheers
I need an Ibes and where to find it? It would be a miracle if the answer was... in my hands!!!Very Happy
