PostSubject: Cave lion 1:20   Mon Feb 08, 2016 9:40 pm

I present my next figure that maybe you've already seen some progress on my Facebook page "Signatustudio". As I say ...it was a impressive species that has always fascinated me and that ultimately this current. This is the cave lion (Panthera spelaea). A huge cat (1,20 m at the solder) that lived in palearctic until about 10,000 years ago and it was one of the main predators of the time. Last year was an important discovery in northern Siberia. Two cub frozen species, well preserved, that help us better understand the coat, color and structure of this kind ...

This will be my first figure of the Pleistocene epoch as the aurochs and the Tarpan but coexisted with cave lions,  they are extinct recently.
Hope you like it ! Very Happy





One of the two cubs found frozen in Siberia...


This is the picture I drew as a basis for the figure but I have been changing it to give a more fierce and alert with head up looking for prey




First steps in modeling the cave lion. Focusing on the head and a sketch of the body to which I will have to add more hair and defined musculature.

This animal must live in a very cold environment glacier and so the coat must be thicker giving it a more bulky appearance ...

Wow!!!

Fantastic model, very attractive and very well made! I also like the scale that is the one I always use. How large is it?

I really, really, like a lot! specially, being a cat (A huge cat I would say).

Congratulations!!!!

Thank you Bjarki and Mgarat ! Very Happy

Mgarat, I appreciate your words coming from a specialist in felines like you. I also usually do figures in 1:20 and 1:22 scale and in this case I have modeled: super sculpey firm, modeling putty that hardens after heat.
Accurate measurements can not get the words right now because I'm doing the mold but next week I hope to have it finished and painted.

Thanks friends !! I greatly appreciate your words and you like this figure Very Happy sunny
It has been difficult modeling the figure because it is the first time I've made a big feline and has many characteristic details of his anatomy to be taken into account to model and paint. study

It's Andreas Köpke (Goalkeeper Trainer), from the Minimen DFB Edition 2006, German Football Team.

For example: http://www.ebay.de/itm/1-Minimen-Sammelfigur-Michael-Ballack-WM-2006-Deutschland-neu-/231873930033?hash=item35fcc36331:g:J~YAAOSwQTVV-TTk

Christoph thank you very much!. I think a very interesting figure in 1:20 to add to the collection along with other animal figures. human figures of other brands are usually a smaller scale ...
