PostSubject: Gelada ( theropithecus gelada)   Thu Jul 07, 2016 4:59 pm

Thanks to the indications of our friend Florian asked me to make this species, I have started a new figure.. new for me in several respects, the order of this mammal and its geographical location.
The  sculpture have attempted to model is a Gelada (theropithecus gelada) primate endemic mountainous areas of Ethiopia. Different genus Papio, shares with many similarities. It is a species with a very peculiar behavior and aesthetic ...

Oh wow, I've never heard of a gelada before Shocked I have so little knowledge about primates, I think I would have called this a baboon.. Laughing
But look at your sculpture, you're still in the middle of the process, but you already can see such expression! Wonderful work, keep it up! cheers

Thank you friends, I l'm glad you like this figure and enjoy this interesting species !!.
I advise you to see videos in which their behavior so peculiar, huge herds in the highlands of Ethiopia making noise constantly note. To this we must add that impressive physique and characteristic gesture baring fangs and the upper gum to indicate their power or status Very Happy

Primates are challenges to brave sculptors. I know they are always very hard to sculpt and this wonderful species is even more difficult because of all these hairy parts. You're performing a fabulous work and it already looks like the real thing. Very Happy

Thanks Kosta, Roger and Simone, I'm glad you like it this interpretation of a gelada Very Happy .
As Roger says, primates have a peculiar physiognomy and to model those details must be taken into account.

Once the figure modeling finish I had to soften hair texture to make it look more silky and smooth. Thickening body shape and tinkering forms on the face and legs...










Although I smooth the way hair, not to seem dreadlocks, he is still feeling the hair strokes more finely.
