PostSubject: My first repaint! - The old Schleich fox   Thu Feb 02, 2012 9:46 pm

She sure wasn't a beauty queen. I don't know if someone had tried adding some mascara to make her look better, but obviously it didn't work. I also had three foxes of the same model, so it was time for her to go - even though she's one of my first figures.

So, before:

My idea was to make her a silver fox or whatever the blonder version of them is called. I looked through some photos I found from the internet, but didn't really follow any model or even look at them while painting. This is how she turned out:

I'm really happy with my first repainting, even though she looks a bit too much like a dog. Also, after taking the photos and seeing them on bigger size on the computer screen, I noticed some flaws that I already fixed. So the other side of the mouth and the "eyebrows" look a bit different now. I think she's really cute! cat

Susanne is right! The choice of a silver fox is even better than a grey fox! unless it is a melanistic variation of a red fox and not a completly different species what would work not as well! :)
I love your repainting! flower Very Happy

I think silver foxes are just colour variations of red fox (and exist mainly on fur farms Sad ). And they come in many different colors (that also have their own names, like platinum fox) that are actually totally unnatural, like my painting Very Happy But mine runs wild and free!

Yes, yours is a wild silver fox and not a domesticated silver fox. :)
I hope you make a grey fox in future! bounce bounce
