Hello friends,

only one day after my colleague Miguel announced his Yak, I'm also pleased that there will be soon available a 1:22 scale gerenuk male, a model that was a petition from Shawn, and that after a lot of another works I can finally sculpt.

Here are some pictures of the finished sculpting and I must say it's really thin Very Happy
Gerenuk is an African antelope who lives in the sabana, his name means giraffe neck (or something like this). They have really long necks, big ears and eyes, and thin legs Very Happy Well, probably it's better a wikipedia link if you want to know more about them Laughing Laughing

Thank you for your comments. Yes, it has been a hard work on the legs. Now let's see what happens making the mould  Rolling Eyes
