It is time we have this for reptiles.
That would be awesome ! Problem I have is I can't post pictures on here .
Great Idea!!! I can't wait to see some of the reptile work being done! Might even have to post some of my own 8)
I will try to post some pics today.
I would love to see some pics as well. I am very interested in reptile reproductions, unfortuantely i just dont know the methods. But i love looking at others work. Hope to see some great mounts.
Here is a snapping turtle I did he is not done yet but here he is. I made a fake head and wrapped the tail legs and neck and used a lot of clay to make the wrinkles just right.
The first of a long list of practice snakes.
Awesome work to all the above posters. Here is a fly river turtle reproduction i finished up recently. It turned out okay overall.
I also have been working on this leopard frog reproduction. It is coming along, although i didn't get the spots on the frog to look quite right. I am going to add artificial water to the scene as soon as the base dries thoroughly.
rattlesnake looks good
Thank you. I had a great teacher! Still have a lot of practicing to do.
X2 on the timber !
Here is a picture of the leopard frog i just got done with on a morgan replica. The spots arent right, but until i get a detail airbrush and/or become more experienced, its the best i could get.
I also tried a morgan juvenil box turtle replica. Didn't turn out with as defined of markings as i wanted, but on a bigger box turtle i think i can do better.
Chris, I think your mounts are pretty cool man.look forward to see what else you do.
I really appreciate that man. Its nothing compared to what you guys could produce on such a project, but im trying. The morgan reptiles are really cool to paint. I really am looking forward to trying one of the spiny softshell trutle replicas, but ive got to save up. That thing is stinkin expensive. But anyway, i appreciate the compliment. It means alot coming from an experienced taxidermist.
