Are you going to make a mold or 3-D copies available? I know it is a different procedure for 3-D copies but it might be easier then casting the originals.

Thanks, the tusks are just toothpicks at this point, I will be sculpting some new ones from epoxy putty for the finals.

I made some epoxy putty tusks which cure to a perfect ivory colour.
Next step is to refine the anatomy and then texture.

I've never done that, sculpted more detail after it's cured. It's amazing work Andrew, I'm very much looking forward to seeing it painted.

I like the brown, it makes it look like he was taking a mud bath. You should leave the brown on, it looks really neat! elephant

Thanks for the comments everyone. I have painted the model and it is almost done, I just need to seal it with fixative then add some tail hairs.
After some thought I've decided not to make moulds of this particular figure because the ears are set against the body and would make moulding difficult.
In the future I should make the ears separate if I want to make moulds, this will make casting much easier.

Here is how it looks now.

Forest elephants have more golden coloured ivory than the savannah species, the tusks are also more dirty I've noticed.





Schleich for size comparison

That looks great, elephas! The anatomy/proportions look downright real, and the pose and the skin texture are really, really excellent!
Your elephants are always some of the most realistic looking sculpts I've ever seen.

Christophe, I hope to do this one day as well.
Andreas, I was thinking of maybe sculpting a Pygmy hippo or some species of rhino.

Harriet, Anna, Bryan, pjbclub, Robert, bjarki12, thank you for your comments,  I'm glad you all like my models.

I added the tail hairs today, the models are now complete.
