PostSubject: Muskox (a windy day...)   Sat Aug 01, 2015 1:35 pm

Hello again,
Your friendly comments with my debut figures (a couple of gaurs: thanks a lot, again!) encouraged me to try a more difficult model to gain skill. So, here is my muskox before painting (sorry for the bad images). Hope you like it, although I need to have a rest from any long-hair species during a time. In a few days, the final model.

The wind blown fur is a wonderful idea.
I like it a lot.
Well done. I'm looking forward to see it painted.

If our comments encouraged you to make this work. we should all be proud of it. Very Happy
But, the proudest of all must be the author of that geneiality! cheers
I also love the fur effect, it gives more realism to the figure! cheers

Hope you like it.
By the way, can anybody help us (the beginners in these hobby) with casts and moulds? I have already seen some good posts on this matter, but I will appreciate more data (for example: species with rounded horns...). This figure is a present for a friend, and I would have liked to keep a copy for myself!

Your friend told me that is in vacations these days and that you can use my address to send it. Wink Laughing
Wonderful, maybe you can find more info in our tutorials section or find a good topic to post your question. Very Happy I am not knowledgeable about it, but I suspect it won't be easy to make a mold to that figure with these horns and flying fur.

Thanks friends!
I'll keep on trying new models on different scales, skin textures, etc. And I would always acknowledge your positive criticisms to enhance my technique.
Any idea for a new figurine?

Excellent Musk ox, your sculpt have just enough realism and personnal style to reach the Amazing level. I love it and I love the way you are thinking your model. You made my day with this one Very Happy

A suggestion? A running hippopotamus Very Happy

Hmmmm...., a running hippo is a truly interesting suggestion! I didn't expect it at all. I'll think about it.
Thanks a lot Christophe.

Please, allow me to post again a few pictures of the ox, but now made by a much better photographer than me. I think that here I show some pros (fur movement work) and cons (painting, face...) of the figure more honestly...

Since I'll keep working on hairy animals in brief, I would really appreciate any comment to improve the figures. Thanks friends!

What a stunning model, David! Shocked I adore the dynamic effect of these 'moving' hairs; very well done. The paintjob looks great to me too. Very well done Applause

Nice photos of your great model.perhaps imagining that there's a bit of snow in the air would make you feel.ore satisfied with your paintjob? Personally I think it's great and appreciate the determined look on its face. I imagine it's pausing between steps for a minute before continuing on its way.

These pictures are really great and turn your figure even more impressive. I really like it very much and of course we could suggest before slight changes in terms of proportions but I am glad we didn't commented about it. This figure was born to be like that and the result is quite impressive. cheers
