Are you ready for when a client asks to have this done?
Nice work. What do you charge for this?
I have a life size Japanese Sika deer stag to do now .
Not my work. Pricing would be a good question. Off the top of my head, maybe 1.5 grand.
Nice work on the deer! I have done a few skeletal articulations before but have not done any for clients yet. It's a lot of work. I have been working on a design for a jumping deer myself and have been researching jumping deer pictures, so I was happy to see this example.
When I started doing articulations, I wanted to know how much one might charge for the process. I called the Osteology Museum in OK City, OK. (link below) to get an idea. For just a basic standing deer skeleton on a simple flat base like you might find in a science class, similar to the base under this one, they quoted me a price of over 3K if I remember correctly. That was a few years ago. I'm not sure if they still do outside articulations but it might be worth a call to see what their going rate is to give you an idea of the present market.
To put it in a high quality habitat, I'm sure the price would go up dramatically.
