Anatomy Lioness Figure by NadiavanderDonk Anatomy Lioness Figure by NadiavanderDonk
Today I went to a store and bought two figurines from Schleich: a lioness and a horse.

My plan was to paint the skeleton and muscle build on these figures for as nice 3D reference.

So here is the lioness :D It looks much better in real life though.. (phones make crappy pixelated photos)

I do the horse tomorrow :)

Figurines (c) Schleich
Overpaint by me :)

I don't support eating lions but looking at the muscles made my mouth water. :x

This looks really cool 8D I like how one side is skeleton and the other is muscles.

Oh, that's awesme! At first look I really thought it was an "official" one. Than I thought you would have sculpted it all yourself and was already wondering which kind of art and crafts you CAN'T do... but the idea with the Schleich is amazing! And it looks awesome, especially with all those muscels... but wasn't it hard to paint? I mean, I did have Schleich figures as a child for playing (and still have the horses *cough*) and they aree not THAT big...

I could sculpt (did it before) but its just something I can't do at the moment. don't have the materials and my oven can't even bake a pizza ._. and I don't like dirty fingers. haha.


Yeah the lioness sculpture is quite small but was not hard to paint because I used a small brush too. and well...just spend a lot of time o3o

Oh, that sucks! Not only for not being able to sculpt if you want it but also because if the pizza...
Oh, dirty fingers are baaad... especially if you get the sculpting clay under your fingernails...

Well, the amount of time surely is obvious! Just the muscles alone with the variations of red and all those details... can't wait to see the "good" photos!

Well, okay... but at least you have a microwave and an oven. Better than just having one electric hotplate for meaking all your meals^^'

Schleich is one of my favorite animal figurine makers (plan on collecting them some day for sure);
I think you did very well with marking out the bones and musculature. The concept is brilliant ;; interested to see the horse one :v
