If I might offer some criticism, I dislike the head on this model. It does not look very equestrian (it looks more like schleich's version of an equine head). The nostrils should be more to the side, not on the front on the muzzle as in pigs. The muzzle itself should be gently rounded in front and have a well pronounced chin, as opposed to the very squared muzzle and weak chin on this model. The line forming the mouth should be very near the same level as the lower-most surface of the lower jaw, and the eyes should be a little lower on the skull (not so close to the anterior plane of the forehead). The overall proportions of the Mojo quagga also seem a little off (the body looks too small or too short for the head and neck).

Amazing model! If you are sticking to the prehistoric theme next year, can we see an auroch and a megaloceros next year?

Thank You for Your comments friends Very Happy Very Happy Very Happy

Seijun, I appreciate Your comment of course, and I see the difference however I based on different photos then this one. You can compare, I think these zebras, my main "models" have quite different chin shape :)

Anyway the constructive critic is always a good lesson and in future works they may be very helpful sunny

Cattlecollector, lovely ideas but I truly do not decide about the final list :) Your suggestions however are great and I love them :)

A great news for collectors, at last a quagga ! It becomes very usual to see new unusual species isn't it Laughing
Thank you Eg... MOJÖ and Anna for this great newcomers.
Seijun your comment is very interesting and now I can't wait to see the quagga nostrils in real. Or maybe Anna could ask ?
About the shape of the head, it is really difficult to tell. some pics are saying you are right and some Anna is right.

Even with the zebra I think the head is still much different. The quagga was a subspecies of the Plains zebra. The nostrils again are on the sides, not the very front, and the profile of the muzzle is still much rounder (on all equines, the nostrils are on the sides--in a very extreme case, for instance if the animal is moving at a high speed and breathing in strongly, the nostrils might appear more forward and the muzzle might appear more flat).

Ana, thank you for the picture. You are right that the chin on those three is much closer to yours. I imagine it is affected by how relaxed the animal's jaw is.

Another thing worth noting is also the angle of the mouth. The mouths when relaxed will not be in a level line like on the Mojo model. Instead they will rest at a definite angle. This is a very common mistake on model equines.








Kikimalou: My opinion is that a taxidermy animal should never be used as reference for sculpting a mammal, except perhaps for referencing fur markings. In most cases, the skin is the only part of the mount that was on the original animal. A form underneath is responsible for giving the skin it's shape. The form is made of foam in modern times, but before foam was invented they probably used wood, shavings, stuffing, etc to shape the skin into what they thought was correct. Basically, when you look at a taxidermy mammal you are looking at someones sculpture of the mammal with the skin stretched over it. As with any sculpture, the quality varies based on both the skill and knowledge of the artist. For some example s of truly horrible taxidermy jobs, see here: http://taxi-derpy.tumblr.com/
