Working on a realistic repaint of Safari's new lynx. It's a gorgeously detailed sculpt but had a lousy paint job I couldn't stand. I will be doing a walkaround photoshoot with my other camera once I'm done.[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]

Wow, I love it! It's beautiful now! The paintwork from Safari wasn't good at all, this one is perfect! Now it's easy to see how nice this model is! Congratulations! cheers

Ohhhh!!! I ADORE it drunken

The original is ok, I think, - the Canadian lynx can be rather light, - but this one looks SO much better cheers

That's a very realistic painting! If it was not the somewhat off proportions of the figure, I could easily think it was a real lynx. Shocked
I dislike very much the original painting although I intend to get it. I also think that Safari made a generic looking North American lynx, not exactly a Canada lynx or a bobcat. I don't know which species you used to make your work but now it looks a perfect bobcat for me, not a Canada lynx. I am glad you'll show more pictures of your great work! Very Happy

That is indeed much, MUCH better.
I liked the figure when we were shown the first pictures of it, but it looked quite lackluster.
I kept wondering how it would look with a decent paint job.
But now, after seeing your work, I don't feel any more hesitation to put it on my "to buy" list.
Thanks for showing.

I think it is very clearly a Canadian lynx . We can check off all the points that distinguishes it from the bobcat Very Happy :
- Huge paws
- long legs
- very long under-leg on hind legs
- long tuffs on the ears
- tail with black tip and no stripes

I love this model very much  Laughing

The sculpt is without any doubts a Canada lynx and I agree with your points. My problem is with the painting. It is correct that Canada lynxes have the tip of their tails black while bobcats have black only on the dorsal tip of the tail being ventral white. An important detail indeed. I may be wrong about the painting but I think leg strips are very rare in Canada lynxes while they're common in bobcats.
There's another thing I don't know, Safari just calls it lynx, it seems in US English lynx is used to Canada lynxes while the bobcat is never called a lynx, if it is right, the ambiguous designation is explained.
I really hope, when having it in my hands, to have a much better opinion about the figure, when I see the mass produced version in pictures, I can't see a realistic looking figure, it looks quite artifitial and this repainting makes a huge difference to the figure.
