PostSubject: Fennec fox WIP --> finished!   Mon Jul 13, 2015 12:07 pm

I asked what people would like to see me sculpting and one of the suggestions I really liked was the fennec fox.
So here's the progress so far:


Don't mind the bend leg too much. I should have made a wire armature but I didn't do that...



Also, this time I'm keeping track of my working hours. A lot of people have asked me how long it takes to make one sculptures but I very bad at estimating. And I'm just curious myself how many hours it takes me to sculpt something.

Thank you friends sunny cheers

He's got some more details now:






I don't like this side yet... I think his back needs to be a bit more "hunchbacked" or bumpy? (I don't really know the right word, but I hope understand me.) So please give me some advise how I can make it look better :)

Thanks Julie flower

Do you know those fountain pen cartridges? To help the ink get to the nib those cartridges contain a little ball. So I cut open some empty cartridges and removed the little balls and they turned out to be the right size for my fennec's eyes :)

Thank you :) fennec foxes are really cool creatures, aren't they.
And I saw your fennec fox too! it so detailed considering it's small size! I didn't dare to sculpt mine in such a small scale (mine is 1:12)
(btw, I added your blog to my "blog-watch-list" ; ) )

thank you friends :)

Here she is, completely finished!





I made some more pictures. It's still hard to take good sharp pictures of such a small model while also the lighting and the colours should be good... pirat
