Caught the voodoo hyenas tussling again. Seems good natured enough, but not the distraction we need in the middle of prep time!
These two will be coming to fanexpo with us.
Bones has made some pretty sweet modifications to the original pattern which are subtle, but refine their hips and shoulders a little more. We’re also using our new joints in their stifles (otherwise known as the knee), which given ‘em a really nice ‘tuck’ ability.
For the uninitiated, these guys are made using ball and socket resin joints, and do not utilize wire. As a result, they’re nice and durable, and hold a pose beautifully without the worry of wire fatigue/breakage.
Their boney bits are cast in resin from our original sculpts (skulls are based on Crocuta crocuta, the spotted hyena), hand painted and sewn. These guys sport two slightly different colour schemes, the warm yellow-tan, and the cooler mushroomy grey. The mushroom fella uses a brand new side fur that’s lovely and has a bit of a shine to it, so he’s probably somewhat unrealistic in just how tidy he looks, haha.
