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... :)

Great job! You really have a knack for this.

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

That is a strange colored bongo in your picture Roger. I have never seen one with so dark a face. :)
