PostSubject: Indian Flying Fox sculpture   Mon Jan 17, 2011 6:08 pm

I am working on the diorama today, the temps are above freezing and there is sunshine so I have been going out to the shop to work on the figures and trees. One of the things I want is a flock of flying foxes. Colorata makes an endangered animal series and it includes a flying fox that is a perfect scale for the Indian flying fox so I decided to use it as the model to make my own flock. So far I have done 2 making 3 figures for the beginnings of the flock, I am not sure how many I want but there will be some flying and some in the trees. The first one I made was a flying one to go next to the Colorata one but the wings are in a different pose, up-stroke instead of down-stroke like the model. The second one is in the tree.

I have taken a very poor quality photo of the newest addition, along with the Colorata original for a size and color comparison for everyone to look at. I used the newest Kaiyodo bat model as a pose, if you look at the post on figures I am looking for you can see that figure, I didn't take a photo of it for this post, but it is climbing up into the tree top to find a location to take off from and join the flying ones. It is very small so the detail is hard but I think it will do fine on the dio because it will be in the tree and you will have to look for it when standing in front of the diorama. Hope you like it and any comments would be appreciated.

Those are really, really fine !
And I love the photo, - it is like taking a quick look into an exotic world. They must be very, very difficult to make with those thin and fragile "wings". I hope to se many more photoes as you go along flower
