Hey Guys,
after this great repaint, which Caracal did and made the Papo model as Stripped hyena,
I also decided to try something with my model.
But I went even further and customized it , with making the legs longer.
But then ... I decided to make also the pose a bit different ...
And now , my model looks like this :

And when I start ... sometimes I can`t stop Laughing
So, what do you think, should I also change the neck .. and make it like this :

Or keep it in the original possition ?

If I change it ...and if I repaint it as a Stripped Hyena , it will look something like this :

But I think, I have also an option to go even further and insted of Stripped one, to make a Brown Hyena ....
Something like this :

I really need your imagination, knowledge and ideas Very Happy
let`s do this project together ! cheers bounce

Go for the brown one : it is the scariest hyena and it has never been made by a main brand.

The fur on the belly and the tail can really look brown-like and considering this comparison pic, I think it would even look better as a brown than as a stripped :

Since you're not only repainting it, I think it would be a shame not to go all the way and make a brown hyena rather than a stripped that have already been made by CollectA and Caracal.

I would go for the brown one too, If you think that the long straight fur can be presented in this model..

WOW !!! This is more exiting than a Jack Reacher novel affraid cheers bounce

Just like Jack, he is being cut to pieces, and now he may have his neck broken Shocked
But we know, he will come out of hospital two days later, even more strong and handsome than before Laughing

But will he be brown or grey ? Completely new plot cheers

I see Kosta didn't sleep the whole night!
My opinion is the same as the previous and I am really excited with your project! bounce
I think lowering the head gives a more natural pose to the figure, it may force you to have some extra work but you have now a good chance once you have more free time.
Since you already started an ambitious project with important changes to the original model, I think it is better that you make a brown hyena. You have a striped hyena from CollectA and you can use another Papo hyena to repaint as a striped without such dramatic changes. If I was the talented person here, I'd go surely for the less common species. cheers

Beautiful work so far! If it were me, especially with your skill, I'd go further with the pose and drop the head as your sketched. I'd also go with making it brown hyena since they are such an awesome species. But then again, who said you cant buy multiple of this figure and do both? I want to redo one and make a brown hyena for my collection but I'm afraid all I dare to do is repaint it. I cant wait to see your final product!

Thank you very much Rtas , Spacelab , Susanne, Roger and Paige for joining and helping to my project :)
I am glad to have you here  sunny

Yes, Rtas , Spacelab , Roger and Paige  ... I was expecting this suggestion..
it is logical .. since I changed this model so much ... Also we still don`t have a Brown hyena ...
and sicne now, my custom actually it works for a Brown hyena ( if I succeed with making a long fur...)

Haha Susanne ,  Laughing  believe me ... after the project is done ... no matter what the result will be... this Hyena will be called :
Jack Reacher   lol!  .. but I have to make it as a male  Laughing

Yes, this is my problem actually : the long, straight fur of Brown Hyena ...
To make it I need a good , qualitatively clay ... and unfortunatelly , I don`t have one right now.
I have only a very cheap one , which is not very good for making a nice details as fur ...
Hmmm ... or maybe I can give my best and try with what I have.. scratch

Hmmm, I am still in a ''crossroad''...
1. First choice : Stripped Hyena - less work for me
2. Second choice : Brown hyena - more interresting , but more work ... and without having the right materials ...

Ok, one thing is more clear to me ... To go for changing the neck down.. Since you all like it like that,
and nobody is for keeping the original angle up :)
So, I can go for it Very Happy

With that information of the clay, just went the horse into the river. Fortunately, both options are good, or in other words. Either the camel, or the camel rider. :king
Well, I see my medication is not working so let’s pick up the pigeons. Sleep Laughing

I was going to suggest get another and do both also. Wink Razz
But since you don't really have the proper materials on hand to do the brown, make this fellow striped and save the brown for a later project. With your talent, both will be spectacular.
I also think the dropped head pose looks more natural.

Wwith my animal themed phrases litterally translated from Bulgarian, I forgot to give a helpful opinion.
If the available material is not good to you make a satisfactory work, it is better that you go for something that worth all the effort.
The striped hyena is also a very exciting project and you can work in a brown hyena when the world we know is back. In addition, we all suggested the original mould as based in a striped hyena and the pose changes you are performing, make it different from what we have seen before from [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]. So, my opinion now is the same as Kelly's.

Kosta, this is a wonderful project in these difficult times! Thank you very much for that.
I would also take the brown hyena. I'm very curious to see how your project is going on.

1. First choice: If it is more simple, maybe you start with stripped hyena first.

2. Second choice: But you are an very good artist.So maybe in the end you would be more happy about the difficult model and you would regret, it if you chose the striped model. Maybe there is a solution for the missing materials after all.

I actually taught, that these phrases are not only Bulgarian ... and that`s why you used them .. hahha Laughing But yes, for sure they are bulgarian .. and actually they sound very funny on my language ...
Especially : '' just went the horse into the river'' , because we say it with using an old dialect lol!

And...Yvette is back ! cheers cheers cheers
I am very happy to see you on the forum agin dear friend and also very happy to see you here on my project sunny
And your advice is also helping me a lot . Thank you :)

Sleeping brain is when someone with a lot of scales and a long snout take a lot of time to find out why a certain post is not anymore in a topic. At least you're not posting in the wrong thread. Wink
When I used these translations, I suspected you couldn't figure it out at first because I am sure it could happen with me. Seeing some Portuguese idiomatic expressions translated to English, my reaction would be surely: - Oh, I didn't know English also used it! Interesting that you preserve the old dialect in some of your expressions. Very Happy

Finally Postimage works again, so I can show my Jack Reacher , with with low head...

Of Course Susanne gave that name of the hyena ... and just like she said :
''Just like Jack, he is being cut to pieces, and now he may have his neck broken . Shocked
But we know, he will come out of hospital two days later, even more strong and handsome than before Laughing ''

Oh, it`s going on - the next picture!
Very interesting to observe how the figure changes and especially the kind of creative elements like these "connecting parts" or "tendons" on the neck.

It is not the best for details ... but if I am quick and if I use also water, and also using the right tools .. I think, I can make a nice fur :)
