Default Treehouse Kids repaint

Just like Robertelephant posted I have repainted the impala from the African safari animal set. Here he is next to the one I have for trade. I didn't want to paint both in case someone wanted to trade for the second one, but if no one wants it I will paint him the same. Sorry, the quality of the photo isn't that good, the flash washed out the new paint job, but it was the best I could do, you can't really see the white throat or the two toned color of the belly but I used internet pics of wild impala for my template.
Here they are next to each other, tell me what you think

I am thinking that the flash may have washed out darker shade of your repaint , but maybe if you used a slightly darker tone it would have been better.

I could still see the light underbellr and other details and they seem just right.

No flash and a tripod... That's the only way.

He looks good to me,but i can't really see if the colour is to light because of the flash,or because you painted it into a very light colour.
I would be interested in the other one by the way.

I will try to get a better pic without a flash, the main color is a burnt yellow ochre with brown added, I mixed it to match a picture I took off the internet of a male and the match is much better then in the photo, when I look at the picture above it is way too light, but when I hold the model up to it they look like 2 different animals.

Here is a better picture, I still am not happy with the photo, it still looks too light when compared to the actual animal, but it is much less washed out then the first photo. What do you think?

He is available to trade, and I could send the other antelope baby that I have for you at the same time, what do you have to trade, there are several I am looking for, a Jeol waterbuck, the Lineol walking zebra, the Schleich female gorilla or the sitting grizzly bear are all figures I am interested in that you may have doubles of, or any African or Asian animal in the right scale.

Maybe it's the pic but I think it needs more hot colour and you missed the black spots on the legs.
You can believe me I'm a specialist, since my hands still don't know what to do with a brush ah ah
So, let's talk the Impala itself :

The color of my photo is still not correct, the base is closer to the photo of the live one, not an exact match, but closer then my photo shows. You are correct in the missing black spot, I will add them later, the photo I was using didn't show the back ankles so I didn't see that when I painted. If you look at the new photo in the picture forum he is in front of the zebras and that has a little better color rendition.

Thanks for all the input, any more help would be appreciated and definetly needed
