I've just finished sculpting an Okapi. I made it yesterday, but because it's big it will take a little longer to dry, so I might have to wait until tomorrow to paint it. It's in scale with the Schleich Okapi, maybe slightly bigger. But here it is...

My favourite of your sculptures so far Very Happy

I really like the ears and the tail. And the fact that it looks alert yet relaxed at the same time. I can't wait to see her painted Very Happy

She looks awesome. Congratulations on making such a great model and thanks for sharing the photos. Now you have to show us the zebra instead of just teasing us.

Thank you Kiki. The Zebra I have made is slightly bigger also (to the Schleich Zebras), but you don't notice it really. It's hard getting the scale right, but as I said you don't notice it.

Here you are Kiki, a picture of all the models together. It's funny how small the collection looks when you get them all together.
