Wolves finally finished

Discussion in 'Lifesize Mammals' started by ccook63, Jan 13, 2010.

  1. Here are a couple of wolves for a client that I have been working on for quite sometime but done as I am going to get them. I had some help mounting the wolves from Brian Jones. Thanks Brian.
    Please let me know what you think.
    The base is custom built from the ground up by myself that was a lot of work. I think the rock rocks.

    The feet look to be a little over filled, and the snarl wrinkles are going the wrong direction, the skin won't wrinkle that way when he snarls. Grooming is a little rough. Eyes are too round, they should be squinted more for the attitude. Notice how the pupils are touching the upper eyelid on the live wolf, and how yours are more toward the bottom eyelid, it gives a completely different attitude. The left ear is too high on the head, you've detached the ear canal.

    For the blood try red tepera paint mixed with any two part clear epoxy like Epo-grip 7 minute kick epoxy.

    That's red Tempera paint.
     
  12. how do you get it to set without making a mess and form the drip?
     
  13. Thanks for all the comments. As far as the blood dripping from the mouth it is jaw juice with some paint mixed in it. I see what you mean by the snarls in the picture Jerry. Next time I will use my reference better. For the feet also they do look a little big in the picture.
