   Thank you. Yes, they aren't well known at all. Normally I wouldn't do prehistoric horses since aside from three toes on some and slight head differences there isn't as much variety. So when I saw Proboscidipparion I knew I had to do it.

Wow ^^
What animals was this original? Rhino and Croc?

Yeah, it's a Papo croc head and Schleich rhino body. This was fun to make. I think I will put a pink bow on it's tail! And name him Fluffy II!

Honestly I find Mr. Flufy absolutly genial. It is the first time I see a crococeront being featured in a fair way. A very artistic conception, many authors that tried to create bizarre fictional creatures were not half as talented. cheers

PostSubject: Paleo's new custom prehistoric mammals,Sivatherium giganteum,Monday Nov 17 2014   Mon Nov 17, 2014 11:55 pm

Here is my take on Sivatherium giganteum. I'll have to confess this has been on the WIP back burner for awhile. But Robert's figure got me to finish it finally, thank you Robert! Very Happy Very Happy

   Sivatherium giganteum was an extinct gigantic giraffid (up to 2.6m tall) found in the early Pleistocene sediments of the Upper Siwaliks, in the area of Pakistan, India and Nepal. The village Sardhok locality has yielded one of the best collections of Giraffidae from the early Pleistocene of the Siwaliks. The locality belongs to the Pinjor Formation of the Upper Siwaliks (2.6-0.6 Ma). Another species, Sivatherium maurusium, with different shaped ossicones was found in Saharan Africa.

Thanks everyone. I had forgotten to say what was modified, yes, it was a Papo wildebeest with bulked up body and new head.

   Thank you for the compliment.
   The head is sculpted with Magic-Sculpt epoxy putty.

As I mentioned I've tried to catch up with your sculptures and customs- sure enough there were many I missed including some old ones like an impressive Diplodocus custom and a Gastonia (happily the toy companies have finally gotten around to this one!).

In this topic one of my favorites has to be, for some reason, Protitan grangeri. In the photo it has that bit of personality to its expression that you feel when looking at a living individual animal. I also learned something unexpected, with the introduction of Sid and Nancy. Wink I also like the croconoceros/rhinodile, and it is interesting comparing your Sivatherium interpretation to Robert's.

From my point of view customizing could be even more challenging than sculpting from scratch, though having existing constraints can be fun and challenge creativity. I really loved extinct mammals as a child; if I ever try one I'll look to you and other forum customizers for advice or criticism! Smile

   Thanks, the Gastonia is an old one from 15 years ago, today I know more about paleontology and anatomy and would do things different such as the legs and head. I am happier with the Iguanodon done at the same time.

   I'm also fond of the Protitan for some reason. Cool  Oddly enough my inspiration for what animal to do is rather spontaneous. I was viewing Google images doing a search for something and came upon the skull image of Proboscidipparion sinense and said what the heck is that? I pay attention to things like the sinus process on skulls and realized this was different than other horses. I found out what it was and looked up images and voila! Sid and Nancy were born. I already had a pair of Schleich zebras with the toe mods that nothing had been done with. They had rather low long noses and were naturals for the Proboscidipparion sinense conversions. I also have very good 3-D mental abilities and can visualize what appropriate animal to use and quickly carve up a figure in my head before doing it to vinyl.

   I wasn't even thinking about Indohyus at all until one day I came upon an image and it clicked in my head and what figure to use and so I started on it. Had most of it done that day.

   I have an image database on my computer of over 500 dinosaur and prehistoric reptile images and 750 prehistoric mammal images to look through. And I add to them every day. I love the deviantArt web site with the galleries of "sinammonite" and "TORIMORRIS" being especially useful among others. Also the web sites for Roman Yevseyev and Roman Uchytel have very good digital images.

How did you convert the Papo camel to such an awesome Titanotylopus nebraskensis?

   Thanks for looking. Very Happy  To start with I selected the bactrian camel instead of the dromedary since it had more fur to start with. I cut off the humps and re-sculpted the single hump. I use Magic-Sculpt two part epoxy. I then cut off the head and removed the neck also. A new neck was made. I altered the head; new ears, moved the eyes forward and up a bit. I also extended the muzzle maybe 1/8 inch or so. I then made a fluffy tail for it! And then painted it. That's it!
