    Very good idea snowyy,, dont only show off your beautiful work though ;D
    show us some of the wrapped bodies before putting the skin on them,, give us some hints if you dont mind. soften up us rigidermists :D with your soft wrapped bodies.
    Thats an Anteater,, weird looking but , excellent mount,,.love your work man.

    by the way,, WA your work is top notch no matter what technique.

    cheers

    I shy away from doing mammals because they make me break out in hives, but I love to admire the artwork that goes into mounting them on a wrapped form.
    I would definitely like to see a thread that focuses on mammals done "the old-fashioned way."
    They have a soft, life-like appearance that seems to be hard to capture with a rigid form.

    That leopard is aweome, wa, and that flock of foxes just makes me smile, Snowhare. They look like they are plotting something evil.
    That weird golden anteater-type creature is ... weird. But very convincing.
