Tuff Buck

  1. This buck was attacked by a lion and managed to throw it off. No pics of the cat but lots of trail cam pics of this buck before and after. His nose looks like a lip, you could put a nose ring through it. When skinning this I took out 2 cups of that green guacamole looking yogurt paste, yummy.

    Very nice! I really like how you did the scarring!

  3. Thanks. He is not very pretty, but I did the best I could to make him look like he was.

    Great job with the scarring
  8. How about a close up of the nose area, looks awesome!
  9. Lol. Up close his nose is nothing to brag about. The color is okay but the texture is lacking. The scars were built with apoxie clay, tooled textured and smoothed at the edges into the hair. I airbrushed with touchup white, flesh, blood red, dk. umber.

    Wow the scarring looks amazing.
  12. So many attempts just don't make the grade, but THAT is what healing wounds look like!!! It makes me hurt just looking at them. Great job!
  13. Hey thanks for all the replies, sometimes i may think something looks good, but it helps when others confirm that it does. working on that nose texture.
