    I put some finishing touches on my Steampunk Fox. I was going to do more on it, but then I started to think that it might get to be too much.

    This is my very first skeleton and my very first taxidermy! I learned a LOT doing this and I think my next venture into a skeleton will work out a lot better for all that I learned. It was good to start with the Steampunk because little mistakes don't matter, in fact even the big ones can be written off to 'artistic license'. :)

    I hope you all enjoy! My next work is going to be a fantasy head/shoulder mount of a red fox Spirit of Winter.

    Thanks!! I had SO much fun doing it. He's up onto of my snake rack now...looking down on me. I hope my next fantasy piece turns out even a fraction as well.
     
  6. It's very amazing, I love it :D keep up the great work, I don't think I've ever seen anything quite like it. Been excitedly watching this till the end. Would love to see a cat of some kind made like this, or a crocodile, now that would be even more amazing. Just some ideas :)

    A full sized crocodile would be awesome...but I don't think I have the space in my house! Giggle. I'm bidding on some cat bones right now.

    I'm pleased you like!
     
  8. Could try a caiman of some kind, they are a lot smaller :)
