    hey heather!

    great start. your animal models are really beautiful.
    would be cool to see one of them on the backlegs, heading for the other. some really tense muscle deformations, so you really can feel how big those "cows" are .

    solidSnake-Thank you.
    Thanks, abyss103. That would be cool, maybe after I finish these I can do another scene.

    The idea that I am going for with this one is when the two bulls get together and are just sort of starting their encounter. Not so much fighting as pushing around.
    This is not final, mostly trying out the two figures together.

    almost missed this one Heather,
    they look beautiful, very nice form and weight(love the very subtle hint of the ribcage...sticking out pelvis...everything is actually there)...love it !

    How far are you gonna take them ? just curious !

    edit: just had a second look:
    >In the last pic, is it intensional that the horns together form the shape of a heart, to create some kind of duality ? Or is my imagination running wild...

    Thanks for showing.

    I just love your lines. you grasp the complexity of texture and motion with the simplest of shapes. your reservation and avoidance of the texture fest is always a pleasure to see. Always educational and inspirational.

    rendermon, dagoned- Thanks! I'm glad you like them so far.

    Lucky- Thank you. I don't know for sure how far I will go because I am really not very experienced with painting. But I think I will give it a shot eventually. As it is, they are set up for 3D printing because that is what I am used to doing. Maybe I will print them out eventually.
    No I didn't position it to shape a heart with the horns on purpose. I was just trying to find a composition I like for the body positions. Interesting observation.

    Thank you, Troy 1617-I really like working on animals the most.

    T.S.W.- Thank you, I appreciate the compliments. There is a little hair and horn texture on there, but it isn't super heavy. I'm really glad you like them.

    Nicely done Heather! I like the tension you managed to created by adding the second bull.
    Keep up the great work.

    Thumbs up

    this one is looking cool......great sculpting....!!!....my one critique is that u could have added a slight curve along the spine to give the animals a bit more life in gesture...looking a bit a stiff right now.....eles, its beautifull...
