Harriet, Torben and Yurumi thank You very much for appreciation Very Happy Very Happy Very Happy I'm so happy to hear You like this scene Very Happy I must say it was difficult to make: action poses of dogs were especially hard to do. And yes it's dramatic, I doubt if this antelope would have any chances with this pack. But from the other side dogs have to eat something Shocked

It is great to see how flexible use of the wild dogs, Phil so may change the animal scenery in his diorama. Phil You are one lucky man! Very Happy

With these wonderful wild dogs (the name makes by Ana's models the animals would all honor), would even the old lion-Papo make sense and make a good impression. :) :)

PostSubject: Ana's Custom Work   Sat Jul 31, 2010 3:24 am

Ana: Hello again. I viewed your latest work about 3 hours ago, and after picking up my lower jaw from the floor, I was left speechless. I have thought for hours of a valid response. Suddenly, it came to me. When I was a very young boy, I had a simple Catholic Catechism textbook that was given to me by an elderly aunt. It was the type of book used to prepare youngsters for their first Communion. In it was a section that dealt with the Creation. I can still recall the simple drawings of a wise and aged looking God creating creatures out of mud. After they were modeled by the hand of God, they were shown walking off into the newly created world. The book's illustration showed lions, tigers, giraffes, elephants, the typical animals that one would see in a young child's book. When I see the animals that you have modeled and created, I see that you have been blessed by God with an unbelievable talent. Just like God in that children's story book, you can take a simple ball of clay and create a creature so lifelike, that if I didn't know better, I would think that you had some secret machine that could shrink a REAL animal to a miniature size. Ana, you have a VERY, VERY SPECIAL talent. I can see GREAT things for you in the future. Most Sincerely, Paul

I can't stop starring at those beautiful dogs,Ana.They are stunning!YOU SHOULD REALLY START A COMPANY!
When we were in Austria,my mom saw a shop with animals made of wood.Some were extremely small,a lot smaller than yours,but the mean man said 30 euros each.OR even 50 for the larger ones.YOUR MODELS ARE A LOT NICER exclamation

Excellent Work Ana, I know that Phil is thrilled, and as soon as the scene reaches him, they will find a special place in his savanna.

Thank You for nice words Willy Very Happy I couldn't make anything earlier because I had hard time in studies, but now I have holidays so there will be more news from me soon Razz

About bongo project-I'm making his horns shorter, and do some correction on legs but it's almost ready. So I think there will be one more bongo to see in August and it would be available for more people too Very Happy Very Happy

Hello again all, I have been gone since Friday of last week to a family reunion. I am glad all of you like the scene, when I approched Ana with the idea it was something I have wanted on the diorama for almost a year, long before I met any of the people on either animal collector forum. I had the same reaction as most of you did, when she emailed me the photos I was speachless and could not find the words at first how do describe my happiness with the figures. Still it is hard to describe, what words to use? Fantastic, beautiful, wonderful, perfect... I could go on and on and still not describe what I see when I look at the photos.

Anyway, I love this set, and there will be more as I have found that animals interacting (even if not in such a dramatic pose) are so much more natural and will add to the diorama a dimension that could never be achieved without the help of people like Ana and Danny and others, even if it is just a suggestion to make a plant better or a better view and position.

Only now I had the opportunity to see your latest work. Wonderful idea and execution. We simply no words to describe our emotions when we saw what you did. A wonderful scene from " the food chain" as well as my older daughter says. Many of these wonderful but it only comes to mind when watching these marvels.

Aniu za to co robisz i czym się z nami dzielisz bardzo bardzo bardzo dziękujemy i z niecierpliwościa czekamy na nowy wspaniały pomysł ze świata zwierzat.

Hi Ana,

I just saw this figurines and they look beautiful. You really have a great talent in your hands and mind. Just keep making these beauties and sharing with us.

It is nice to see these animals in a natural behaviour and not only in a standing or lying pose.

One question, do you make a mold for these animals or just one for Phil?
