Finally I've managed to make a bongo antelope. I had to hurry a bit before the removal, but I hope I haven't missed anything. I fell in love with bongos since I've played in Zoo Tycoon :) It is my very first antelope, I hope you will like it sunny







And here's my assistant:

Wow, great job. The model is great, but the face could be narrowed a bit. This is just my opinion though, and your model is still fantastic. Sad(o)): Very Happy

Thank you for pointing this, I have a tendency to make too wide heads and I don't know why Laughing Maybe it is because of a way in which I start making a head scratch

Sleep I don't know why I loose this topic. Sleep
I have to confess that before reading Phillip comment I had the same feeling that your bongo has a sculpting that ressembles a lot your takin. Your figures are very recognizable you have a very marked style. That is not a bad thing for sure. We can find it in a lot of artists and brands. That's the reason why some figures are better than others even when they are made by the same sculptor. Always getting clear that your figure is very nice, I think the sculpting of your takin benefited more from your style than your bongo. However, the painting is fantastic!!! cheers
I love the figure and your style, even it doesn't look in my comment. flower

Hey guys!
I've been busy with my exams (I'm just after the first one and it was very hard Evil or Very Mad), but everyday I kept resculpting my bongo sculpture for around 2 weeks. I hope it looks better now. I have resculpted the neck and back, changed the legs' position, and made new horns. I have also painted it once again. I didn't want to make a completely new bongo due to the fact that the figure is quite big and it would be a waste of materials.

All right. Not being very happy with my bongo antelope (and mainly its texture) I've decided to remove the paint completely. It was a huge pain in the... you know where Laughing I made a fur once again and resculpted the face. I still have problems with making the eyes on both sides of the head (which is typical for herbivores) so if anyone has a tutorial or whatever, I would be very grateful.
Edit: I forgot about the white marking on the chest, now it's okay Wink

He looks nice, Very Happy but I think the neck is a little bit too long and the head too small, but that's just my opinion.

Unfortunately it is because of my camera's lense or whatever it is called. It makes the objects more horizotal-like on a photo rather than a flat picture. It is really annoying because it changes the figure's proportions when in reality they are okay Mad

Agata, I know you're not asking it but by far, what I like best on your bongo is painting, it is excelent! cheers
Also the last pictures are wonderful and I am already used with the way you make these beautiful faces. What a Faceflower
What I am not totally convinced is with the profile view, the rounded head and bottle shaped body/neck, a little richer and better defined shape would improve it a lot. Though, it is only a recomendation for a future project, the result is very nice as it is and probably too much workful to change it again.
Don't get angry with me if I am insisting a little with some of your projects, you have an extraordinary talent and I have a huge faith in your work! flower

Thanks Rogerio! I've tried many times to fix the head and the neck as it is on the picture, but it looked really weird all the time, so I left it as it is now scratch But well, I comfort myself every time when I look at the figures of famous brands which are not perfect sometimes... :)

Agata, the confort is when you are able of finding a shape that pleases you. If you try to follow certain shapes, even if they show a somewhat improved realism, if they don't look good to you, they're not good. Again, you should feel very proud of your talent! flower
