PostSubject: 1:16 scale serval model   Mon Jun 01, 2015 11:27 am

Some weeks ago I asked to collectors for the pose of my next model: the serval. Serval has a very characteristic stile when hunting, making big jumps, so I was thinking in sculpting the model jumping over a rodent, but that kind of model will need a base, so the other option in the poll was a walking pose (with no base, as my another models).
For my surprise walking pose had the double number of votes than jumping one, so I started working in this one.
Here's a picture of first steps on sculpting. I will update info about the process here. I hope you like it! And as usual, I will make copies.

Joan, that's fantastic that you'll share with us all process about this figure. Cervals are wonderful cats and that scale will make it work nicely with many other figures. bounce

It was also a difficult choice on selecting scale. Finally I decided 1:16 because I have made more models in that scale and works fine for medium sized animals (Tasmanian tiger, babirusa and anoa are on 1:16 scale). Also because I'm a little bit tired on making so small and thin models, as happen with gerenuk tongue
So this one is 1:16, and probably my next two models too Cool

Looking good! If I may ask, do you bake your models after every step, or once at the end?

Amazing piece Joan !!

If I'm not indiscreet why it's 70 Eur for this figure? The paint asks work but other figures that you've made have a difficult paint and they are cheaper scratch scratch

Of course, its no problem with that. The way I work is counting all hours needed for each model, during original model sculpting, moulding, preppering and painting each copy.
I have needed more time in sculpting that model also, I have put a great effort on it and I'm quite happy with the definitive sculpture (35% more that in the sculpting for the female gerenuk, for example)
Maybe another of my models seems to have a similar difficult in painting, but the truth is that there's a lot of time needed on painting this one. The work for the face is difficult, and also making spots is not aleatory because the pattern for the serval is special and I don't want that it can be like a cheetah. For example king vulture had a very difficult work for the face, but with the rest of the body it was easier.
I hope it will be useful for you.
