Default Gemsbok female antelope

I've been working on her for a few weeks now, with fantastic help from a few friends. She's made from a new clay I bought called Super Sculpey, which is oven cured (Andrew Elephasmaximus recommended the clay) so I was able to spend as much time as I like on the model - I've also used a wire frame which helps tremendously.
So here are a few pictures:

Your gemsbok is so good, it looks like a new release from Schleich!

Great sculpting and nice detailing on the head. Hopefully the sculpey is giving you more control on making the model exactly how you want it.
