I don't know where else to ask this, so I'll put it here.

My sister and I play an online internetgame where you can own characters. One of your characters resembles you. I want a figure to paint her character on, but I can't find any fitting model, so I'm calling in your help. Here is a picture she drew and coloured herself. She's not a member of this forum, so she'll never see I used this picture to ask your help :)

I was thinking of a fox, but I do not own/know that much fox figures, so I thought perhaps you could help me. If you know any other animal that will fit this, please say so to. The pose doesn't have to be the one on the drawing, but I'd love to have an animal with the right build.
I hope I posted this on the right place :)

Her birthday is on the 27th of February. She collects Schleich on a minor scale and owns one Collecta, but every major brand will do. I bought the paint already, so I hope you guys can help me.

Great project! cheers
I don't know if that help. but have you seen the forest and ice unicorns from Schleich? scratch If you would cut off the horn and model paws instead of hooves, it would look similar I think.

That could work! I have to cut off the mane a bit too, that'll be a lot of work. The length of the legs seems perfect. The ears schould be made bigger too. But I'll concidder it absolutely! Thanks :)

I think also that the Battat Terra fox could work.
It is a current figure, larger than other foxes from major brands, the same material, only available in USA but relatively cheap for its size. Though, check my signature, you have there a lot of foxes perfectly identified  as always as possible. Very Happy

In a similar pose you have that unbranded hollow fox figure, though, it is not half as elegant as yours and I don't know where you can find it once mine was sent from our Indonesian friend Nando! Very Happy

The new CollectA Jackal popped into my mind at first. Or maybe the Papo running fox? The drawing is very fox-like to me. Very Happy

Roger: That seccond fox is cute! But I think, as you noticed, it will be very hard to get before the end of February.

LeeAnn: The Jackal will work too, and very good actually I think. Only the head schould be put a bit higher to make it look a bit more fox-like and the back should me made more straight.

Problem is that most foxes have a perfect shaped head for this character, but the legs are too short or the body doesn't seem right... Perhaps I should mix two figures together. I only have to keep it away from my sister as long as it is a wip. That could be the hardest part of this project Laughing

No, my sister and I play FurryPaws. It's a game where you own dogs. On the forum that's with the site you own characters. You can buy art for them and sell art for others, all for becoming beter in the game itself and earning money to buy better stuff for your dogs. It's quite fun :)

Bloodrayne: It absolutely is a nice figure, but I think it's a bit to fluffy for this character. And if I have to make it skinnier over his whole body, it'll be a lot of work... But thanks for thinking with me Very Happy

I made a sketch of the Collecta Jackal with repositioned head and ears. I also deleted a bit of the back. After that I coloured it the way it will become, and I think it looks great. The ears may have to be made a bit smaller.

Now I only have to buy the Jackal. Thanks LeeAnn for the idea! And thanks everyone elso for helping me Very Happy

The first WIP photo's! I decided to keep the head the way it was, just because it could go wrong less easy this way. I gave her new ears and the nose/head hase is a bit more "uphill" between the eyes. Like the difference between the head of an irish wolfshound and an english pointer. I don't know how else to explain, just look for yourself Laughing

Looking at your sketch where you used the Collecta Jackal, I was going to say that the ears look too small.  Suspect
But looking back at the first picture of Time Glitch you posted, she actually has small ears.
So now I understand why you gave her new ears.  Very Happy
Cool!  Cool

I think you are ready to paint this vixen.
She looks perfect!

Well, she didn't like my reaction that it was a surprise. She really hates that sentence, so I told her it was a surprise because it was for her birthday. It's a shame I had to tell her, but otherwise she would have looked...

She came into my room yesterday evening. When she saw all the pencils she rushed away and asked me from the other side of the door if she could come in. I think she loves the idea of a surprise now she knows it's for her birthday Laughing

(It has been four hours to mix the purple base colour. Her red didn't seem to be red, but really dark orange. I had to make the figurine a bit too blue, otherwise it would have been brownish or brownish-grey. I hope she doens't mind...)

Ah, yes, paint-theory. Very Happy

I'm sure she'll be thrilled with the result. It is, after all, a gift of love.

Hi everyone!

It's finally finished. I only have to spray it with clear varnish tomorrow. Here are some pictures. I think it came out really well. What do you think?
