PostSubject: My Gaur Calf is finished!   Sun May 21, 2017 1:46 pm

Oooh, this took waaaay to long than I had intended to >.<
Last year (or maybe two years ago already? o.0) we went to Anna's Sculpting Workshop.
I met some STS members there <3 And learned a lot!
My sculpting animals was a Gaur calf, because I already had both parents, I wanted a little calf to go with them Very Happy

Unfortunately, after I took it home, I lost sight of it and it dried out too much (those are the cracks...).
But! With some very helpful tips from Anna, I recovered most of the cracks and continued sculpting the Gaur calf.
It is my very first model sculpting, so I think some flaws can happen indeed XD

Still, I am very happy with the outcome, but I still have MUCH to learn tho...
( I know the coloration is not right.)
(And the lumps on this back are from, well.... burning it in the oven because I set the temperature to high on accident >.<)

Ohh, Karin ! This calf is SO adoreable I love you

How I wished I could make anything just 1/10th as nice !!!
This winter I tried to make a couple of bords, and now I know how enormously difficult it is to get it right. geek

This calf has all the swetness of a calf, and look at that face with the perfect muzzle !
And the way he carries the tail, and all the other great details cheers

Good that you finished him !!!
His mom looks very alert and ready to defend her new baby Very Happy

When I look at your figure and I see a real gaur calf, I see the same creature. I turly think you performed a fantastic work and that it is a model that shows how talented you are. I hope you just keep it as it is now and that you continue your adventure with newer projects. If I was able of doing something like that, I'd never stop. cheers

That is a beautiful figure, especially for a first try! Great job!

So many positive responds, thank you all so much! <3
Momma Gaur was indeed very happy she had her calf now Very Happy

I will not change a thing, after all the positive responds Very Happy
Apparently, I can sculpt Laughing But Anna deserve credits too, as she helped me with the 'skeleton' and the basics.

I really hope I will make other young wildlife, as many great animals deserve a young IMHO.
When I get my hands on the CollectA Bongo (even if it is a male) I will try to make a Bongo calf :3

I the mean time, I am very happy that a calf has 'born' out of my own hands <3

It's really beautiful, and a great work! You can be very proud of it! As others have said, I wish I could do something half as good as this calf is!!! I hope you enjoy it!

Wow, this figure is very good, with a very sweet look. The painting work is very well done too! Congratulations Karin  Applause  The female gaur of Noémi and the male gaur of Anna have finally been parents!

Wow, Karin, I don't know how is that possible I missed this topic before!
I'm happy to see the calf finished and painted. I think you did a great job, it's adorable! I think the pose is very natural, I love the colours too! cheers

Beautiful calf :) I love it's walking pose and the soft colour transitions, especially. What painting technique did you use?

Thank you all so much for your great comments!
It makes me very happy to read them all.
Calf is standing on my shelf specially made for customs/repaints.

I used pastels Very Happy
I painted the eyes but for the rest I used pastels.
Layer for layer. Took some time, but I think the result is nice :3
