I also started to repaint a few cheap toys. You see, not long ago, because I wanted the gazelle and the cheetah, I had to buy two whole sets of oh-so-common animal toys. For example, there was a zebra. You know what I did to it? I painted its rear body half in brown; and now, I have a quagga. As for the lioness, I painted, on her, jaguar-like spots, and now, I have a jaguar. OK, I only own two buckets of latex paint (brown and black); for white, I still have to use paper liquid (never for large areas). I am looking for new cheap animals to repaint as rare animals.

I have self-made the cassowary. Pictures still follow later.
It makes me happy, if I can you give suggestions for your dioramas.

I hope, I forgot now nothing.

Thank You very much, I bought the Serengeti animal package by Jasmen on ebay as well, and I have that hyena, I can hardly believe the beautiful hyena in your collection came from the ugly figure that was in the package but on second look, I see the figure that I have under your beautiful paint job. Thanks again for the ideas, though I am not nearly as good of a painter as you are, I will try to reproduce your lovely figures.

I am waiting for more photos, and any other animals you have sculpted.

Hi Yurumi fantastic repaints! I come across many animal models that are sculpted well but painted awfully. You have done a fantastic job.

I see TWO business opportunities here! Ana creates stunning models from Scratch and Yurumi repaints exisiting models!

could you post some more photos of these animals individually? especially thw antelopes and gazelles.

Where is the Babirussa from? were they an existing model?

They are his own sculptures, look at the sculpture post of the male and female a week or two earlier and there are great pics of both the them.
