PostSubject: my customized animals   Mon Mar 05, 2012 9:58 pm

The following are some re-customized/re-painted animals I created: the good, the bad, and the ugly. I am not as good as my fellow forum friends who can recustomize and customize animals from scratch, but most of these will do. I have also repainted some animals just to make them the African species, such as Noah's Pals aardvarks to a lighter tan color vs gray, the storks and birds (African fish eagle from bald eagle), and Noah's Pals mutics(SP?) into red duikers. Believe it or not, before all the new Schleich elephants came out, I painted all my elephants the brown color that the former Schleich elephants had. I still like that color--realistic. I made three male Schleich ostriches brown to represent the female race, with one sitting on a nest. I also made a male ostrich's neck bending down to the chicks.

Forgive the photos blurriness--when I get too close they become unfocused. Embarassed And I appologize in advance for those who may be against re-customizing models.

Here is a monkey (forget the original species from the Safari LTD Toob) made into a vervet monkey with some light painting (made 5 of them)

These are Schleich Roebuck Deers made into bushbucks--not the best but it will work for me...mmm, those horns????No

Made from the Safari LTD Longhorn, I created 2 African Ankole-Watusi cattle. Again, not the best, but I fell in love with them at Disney's Animal Kingdon Lodge.

This is the Schleich zebra mare pictured earlier on this forum nuzzling the Re-ment zebral foal.Very Happy

I really like this one. I made the Schleich lion a lying down one by using the legs of the lying down female. Who has never seen a laying down or sleeping male lion??? Sleep It is so normal.

Grazing Schleich Wildebeest (made 4) and a somewhat nuzzling female kudu. When watching any safari programs 90% of the time the wildebeests are grazing or on the move. If anyone would like to take 4-5 of my tommy gazelles and make them grazing, for commission, please PM me. Very Happy

I made an African honey badger (2 in fact) out of the European Schleich badger cubs. I also made the Kaiyodo hooded crane into an African Grey Crowned Crane. (Thanks to Phil for getting me the hooded crane). The yellow crown is golden straw used for grass.

When I first got my Schleich gazelles, I decided I needed to attach horns to make some males. However, Mojo will take care of that this year. I also made a laying down foal, to hide in the grass.

I got some lead, what I think were female turkeys, off of E-Bay and turned them into Helmeted guineafowl with clay and color.

You did such an excellent job ! Amazing Shocked

Seing your re-makes I realize how enormously booring the pose of most models is Sleep Sleep Laughing

Yours are grazing, nuzzling, lying, - really, unlike many others I don`t care very much if a model is completely accurate or what scale they are, - i love them to move and look alive and busy on my shelves , - just like you make them cheers

Thankyou VERY much for sharing. Please go on with the good work sunny sunny cheers

I love that you are brave enough to change them. They lying baby gazelle is adorable and I love the way you change some of the mommas to a nuzzling pose. There do need to be other poses that most companies are not willing to do. Great job. Thanks for sharing.

Thanks for all the kind comments. I think I have high expectations of my animals that will be on my diorama and want them to be in somewhat different positions to make them kinda look like they are not massed produced|! Very Happy
(which we all know they are lol! )
