PostSubject: toy major warthog rework - Babyrousa celebensis - Sulawesi Babirusa   Wed Dec 26, 2012 3:27 pm

Some months ago i saw the T.M. "Warthog" for the first time in Landrover's Collection. It's a weird sculpt, representing an animal between Warthog and Babirusa. With a Collecta-like too short body. i finally found one and decided to rework it a Babirusa. For the appearance i wanted to have a male after rain,...Usually they look grey when they're dry or muddy...when they're muddy,...But with a darker coart, the evil habitus comes out way better, so here's my approach.I know it's Cojones are a little too large same as the head, but it#s because of the balance, i couldnt change more of the head and proportions in general Razz Very Happy
