Nice comparison pictures. They fit in really well sunny

A-J, the giraffe was a challenge for 2 main reasons. One, zebra stripes and giraffe spots are a patience based pattern to complete and I kept wanting to make it symmetrical but the real animals aren't symmetrical. I just happened to be in a mood where I was being fussy and subconciously was making them sort of symmetrical and would have to make an extra effort to try and make the pattern different, thus I got a little frustrated on this project (surprisingly my quagga was easier to do!). The second challenge was my technique I chose was to paint the spots in a solid color and then "white wash them" with a thin layer of white overlaying the spotted pattern. It has been 100°F+ here and so dry that it made my thin coat of paint dry so fast (even in my air conditioned house) so some of my paint strokes are visible and the general effect just didn't quite turn out how I envisioned. It will be a pattern to revisit and attempt again sometime! Hopefully so I can achieve better results then. Wink

Those are definitely relatable struggles. In summer I enjoy painting outside but with acrylics when I have just mixed the right colour and have done one coat the paint is dry already and I have to mix a new one Mad

I tried painting outside, once. Yes, once. The paint was drying on the model before I'd even finished blending it, let alone gone back to dip in the palette 'puddle' for more Laughing

I am glad I am not the only one!

Since I haven't had a chance to finish the last 2 models yet, here is a side track... during quarantine my dad got re-obssessed with his childhood matchbox cars and accessories and ERTL farm sets. Being an engineer of sorts he likes to build things and built his own giant set of farm buildings and accessories etc. and now he lets the grandkids play with them. This weekend we got the farm set out and I came across a handful of cows I repainted for him to give him some variety. At such small scale they aren't super detailed but they were fun! There were 2 bulls I couldn't find though so if I can track them down I will add them too.

What a great idea from your father to revive his old collecting habits during the confinement sharing the fever with his disciples. Laughing I am sure you all had a lot of fun interacting and building this project together.
Confinement is forcing us to live like matches in a matchbox and it is great when we find some joy on it to avoid our flamable condition. Even in the dark, there's always a bright side. flower
