Yesterday I received my forest buffalo figure done by Harriet, he arrived in perfect condition so I put him in his new home, he is so wonderful I can't wait until his mate arrives.  Until then here are a couple of photos of the bull for everyone to enjoy...

That is a stunning figure for a great diorama. He will be happy in his new home, when his mate arrives of course.  cheers

He looks so happily perfect there, in among all the green and brown.

I just love, too, the way he is painted in so many different lovely shades of colour, especially the rich gold/brown.

Good work!

The bull looks very well executed, the sculpting and painting suits it perfectly. It looks like it fits in perfectly with your diorama setting.

Thanks everyone, I'm glad you like the photos.  

On the diorama, I chose the coloring based on the iron ore deposits typical of the soil found in the forest, I was surprised at how well it matched the colors of the bull when he went into the scene!  I guess when several people are researching the same thing, in this case Ana and Harriet studying the buffalo and me the habitat, if we follow the correct information we should end up with a figure that belongs in the scene.  

As soon as the cow arrives I can finish adding the "forest" around the pair and I'll post more photos, I also have a few hidden gems in the diorama, small animals from the same area that can be seen if you look hard enough. EDIT: My misstatement, so don't look yet, I haven't put anything in there until it is ready for the permanent placement!

Numaan, or any member for that matter, you are more then welcome to visit!  If you get here there is not only my building where the dioramas are set up but my work stations where I make the trees, my woodworking shop where I turn and carve wood, as well as all of the live animals to see.  It is a lot more then just a collection of custom figures, trees, and dioramas.  Hope to see you here at some point!!!

Hi Phil

I dont know much about you. Where in the US do you live and what do you mean there are more buildings and live animals? Do you live on some sort of ranch? I have always admired your postings - your dioramas etc are fantastic. I will be sure to visit one day and see you whilst you work away on your dioramas.

what live animals do you have?
