I'd like to introduce you to a couple of my recent custom orders, a Meerkat and a Maned Wolf. One animal you'll (hopefully, lol!) recognise and the other you may not. :)
The lady who ordered the meekat wanted him to be able to hold a book so I had to design him with jointed wrists. I did wonder whether I had bitten off more than I could chew when I was struggling with the 10mm discs and teeny tiny cotterpins required to make it work. Woah! Those things are really small!! Anyway we made it though OK I think. I decided to make the book myself too as I was worried that shop bought ones would be too large and/or heavy for a meekat to hold long term.
The Maned Wolf is probably not an animal that most of you are familiar with, I know wasn't until I was asked to create one. They kind of resemble a fox with really long legs, ineed they are also referred to as the 'Stilt-legged Fox', very cool looking animals.
I hope you like them.
