PostSubject: Scale Model Elephants   Fri Feb 08, 2013 11:56 pm

Hi everyone,

I'm new to this forum, I enjoy looking at everyone's custom made models and I thought I'd share some of my works. There aren't many model elephants which are anatomically correct on the market so I have resorted to sculpting my own to my specifications. I've been studying elephant anatomy for years and have spent a lot of time with real elephants observing and sketching.

Here are a few models in progress, the front four are sculpted by myself, the white resin models are from the company Paleocraft. Also in the back is my photo reference board.

I plan on sculpting a Loxodonta cyclotis (forest elephant) soon as well.

Welcome from Portugal! :elephant! Very Happy
I am glad you decided to share your works with us and finally introduce yourself on forum. Very Happy I agree completely with you, I have a huge trouble with my elephants from major brands, after a short time I end not loving them. All have the same problems, short and chubby legs, huge heads, sometimes wrong number of toes and not talking about other little but important characteristics. The childish style on elephants is abusive and although they are one of the most popular group of animals, often replicated, they are among the figures whose evolution was poorest in these years. Elephants are magnificent creatures, they deserve better representatives. Very Happy
I enjoy a lot the shape your Asian elephant is taking and all your display. Very Happy
I am eager to see how all of your works are developing and a Forest elephant is a great idea indeed. Maybe it is time to make brands follow the great sculptings from vintage brands like Lineol and even Britains look good when compared with newer ones. cheers

Hi Roger, thank you for your comment. I agree with you 100% in your statement about most modern elephant models produced by the major companies.
It seems looking back at vintage brands like Britains, Lineol, Jeol etc the sculpting was much more accurate and desirable.

Wow, great elephants! I agree. Most modern companies have elephants that aren't that great. You seem to have everything perfect. elephant elephant

Ave Maximus cheers

I agree about elephants, my favorite modern elephants are the PAPO because they are less odd than the other brands elephants.

Paleocraft works are stunning but not cheap enough for my bank account.

Your work is beautiful, I hope you will make moulds of such marvels and spread your models on our shelves Very Happy

These are truly amazing sculptures and now I can understand your interest in George Ford and other artists working for Britains.

Ana thank you, yes I was on LG a few years ago. Your sculptures continue to provide inspiration for me as I see each new model you create and cast. I'm actually really interested in mold making and will try to learn it soon, I want to try casting this Asian elephant when its done. Yes, I paint my models as well.

If I can learn to make a successful mold I plan on casting this elephant.

I use wire armature and tin foil for the internals and super sculpey clay for sculpting. The models are painted with acrylic paint and rubbed with pastel dust for subtle colour variations and finally sprayed with a fixative for protection of the pigments.

Well, about mold making, I think if You need advice I will try to help. Very Happy It's my husband who makes molds and copies for me, and he also accept orders for mold and copies making from other sculptors if someone wants :)

Welcome to the forum Elephas.
Your creations are amazing. I have detected mistakes in some of the elephant models of the big brands (all of them maybe?) so will be amazing to have one from an elephant expert Very Happy
I hope you go on showing us your beautiful sculpts!

hooray!
Me too! i think i als need al, focus on the asians. You plan to sculpt subspecies one day? For instance malayan elephant differs from indian elephant.
will you also make calves?
I'm so amazed, elephants are such popular animals and nearly all models, except for the oldies and some exceptions such as safari ww asian cow, are toyish crap.

Look forward to seeing the Asian bull! Possible to make 1-22 scale?
I also like the photo of the "Asian elephant walking position in front of a rock wall" behind the models. Think that would make a nice model as well.

Me too! i think i als need al, focus on the asians. You plan to sculpt subspecies one day? For instance malayan elephant differs from indian elephant.
will you also make calves?
I'm so amazed, elephants are such popular animals and nearly all models, except for the oldies and some exceptions such as safari ww asian cow, are toyish crap.

I think for now I will focus on the main three species first, then perhaps subspecies and calves later on.

Look forward to seeing the Asian bull! Possible to make 1-22 scale?
I also like the photo of the "Asian elephant walking position in front of a rock wall" behind the models. Think that would make a nice model as well.

At this point 1:20 scale is what I plan to use for the models.

OK. The only reason I bring it up is I really like the size of the Safari Wildlife Wonders Asian.
