    Ken, that re-creation you are working on I initially thought it could be a gorilla. Now I'm not too sure. I'm wondering if you are thinking of doing something that is noted for it's "foot prints" all over the globe?

    I first thought if anyone was going to do a Megatherium,(Giant Sloth) it would be Ken Walker, but this is "Gorilla" looking , not sloth, so maybe a big silverback,get the right grizzly fur and it's going to look fantastic, or Bigfoot and work some Musk Ox hide on it, but I don't think it would look that apey ?, if that's a word.

    The nose should give it away. The lowland has a wider nose whereas the mountain gorilla is narrow and lower.The fur should be easier too because it`s blacker. As far as bigfoot, I would make a Gigantapithicus as they have been proven to exist. If you look at the comparisons they seem like the same thing!!Creepy eh!!

    Sloth no, Bigfoot, because of how creative Ken is, was what I thought may have been a possibility. The world probably couldn't handle seeing photos of something like that, they would never believe it wasn't real. The gorilla I'm sure is going to look fantastic, and I'll have to wait to see it in the magazines when it finally comes out.
     
  6. I finally found a nice 'coon to mount on an Ivan Harvey form I bought several years ago. Getting the layout of the base now. That's a 'baby' Jersey Devil skull in the lower right. LOL

    20 hours in form alteration on all three and weldling.
    6 hours in prep.
    20 hours to mount the three.
    8 hours in Finishing.
    15 hours in the base.
    About 80 hours.
    Clients mount, yes.
