From on zebra to another (haha), this is awesome! I love that you did a little clay maquette, too!
marked. Awesome work everyone!
I was trying to figure out what the heck that
clay sculpture was, then I scrolled.
What a hard act to follow ! ?
FINALLY!!!!! Done with this deer
Started with this form
Altered one more time, and finally put
it together, forgot to take a pic before I
mounted it up.
Suprdave, is that deer going to be jumping a barbwire fence ? Looks good.
Actually customer is putting it on top of his
8x10 foot gun safe
Nice Suprdave. That will be a cool looking gun safe.
Had to do a bobcat this week and I thought I might take a couple pics...
No finish work done just mounted and drying...DC
very nice lifesize whitetail superdave
Here's a civet I just delivered. The hide was from a small female (12 in. belly)
Couldn't find a form that was even close (22 in. belly) Almost went with a raccoon form, using the civet head.
Finally decided, why not, I'm up for a major size alteration.
What a dummy! There was nothing left of it by the time I finished. With the legs removed, the body looked more like a steelhead than a mammal.
Well, here's how it turned out
Nice alteration Duck! Lot of work in that one. Probably could have wrapper that one quicker !! ;-)
Looks good !
Nice, Jared! You simply did what you needed to do to make the job complete. Not all specimens are "cookie cutter" in their ability to fit a given mannikin.
Some are heavy ...
Others ... not so much!
You made the mannikin fit the skin. Too many throw in the towel, or beg for answers from elsewhere. You went ahead and did it ... period. Kudos to you! And the mount ... it may be slight in its build, but it is well done in its details. So there!
Thanks for the encouragement guys. Dakota, I have yet to tackle a wrapped body mount, but the quality of work I have seen on this sight is incredible. I love checking out the wrapped only post. It goes back to what John said, make the manikin fit the skin. From the results, wrapping looks like a great way to accomplish that!
Duck , Yeah,,,,, I'm with you on that ! Some of the wrapped art on here is incredible! I've never done one either,,but I have altered to about the extent you just did. I know how much work you put into that. X2 ,on making the form fit the hide. Great job !!
