PostSubject: Fun with geese   Wed Aug 22, 2012 5:45 pm

A pet peeve of mine is that most companies seem to have decided that ducks and geese are exclusively farm animals, and therefore don't bother to add any to their wildlife lineup. That's why I was so happy when I found the current Schleich goose pair - while they're probably meant to represent domestic fowl, they're leaner and closer to wild type greylags. And... well, you know me. I had to repaint them! Laughing
Domestic geese don't come in all that many colors, usually they're grey or white. And as nice as these colors are, they're not ideally suited to models (they tend to look a little blah), so in the end I decided to break out of Anser anser altogether. What I ended up with was a Canada goose and a blue morph snow goose. These species aren't a perfect match for the Schleichs, but maybe it'll inspire the company to look beyond the barnyard when designing waterfowl!

This is a barnacle goose Branta leucopsis. As you can see I shortened the bill a little. The body shape isn't exactly right, but I decided I could live with it... at least until Schleich makes some decent wild geese. Very Happy

Sumo, I appreciate a lot your repaintings, your species transformations and I agree with you. But, I also like them in their original domestic featered dress. But those are easy to find and yours are unique! Congrats! flower
