Default Jan/Feb - Norm- swankymonkey

I cannot pass up an animal related project.

Just moments after this photo was taken both men were shot dead by a third man hunting for the elusive but unfortunately far from extinct DORK:

And, no, I won't be modeling bow hunting dorks in really bad camo ... the WARTHOG, silly!

Hi guys!

Getting started roughing out the head

Its taken a bit of studying to grasp how these little buggers are put together. They have quite a bizzare jaw and skull structure.

Getting close to finished with roughing him out. Hes gonna need a lot more work around the eye socket, brow, ear, and those freaky choppers ...

Also, I once hes far enough along I'll make his ears and tusks asymmetrical

Wow. That looks really great. I really like the way you'ver modelled the tusks and the nose. I would be curious to see a photo from below to show how you dealt with the mouth. Good work!

Yeah, your model looks excellent. Great choice of animal and thanks for posting the side view of the mouth. Looking forward to seeing your progress.
