Say I need a shark or panther or whatever.  Usually, I find it's more cost effective to buy a random mixed lot of guys off ebay then search for them individually.  Why buy a shark for $8, when I can get him in a lot of 7 for $18.  Also, I very unexpectedly won an amazing auction last year of 77 beasts for $150 the very same day I won another more reasonable 17 for $45.  I really only wanted to win one of these, but customs really became the silver lining.

Macod0shus Vol II

Attached File  image1.JPG   64.05K   5 downloads

 

Gecko

Attached File  Gecko.png   299.57K   14 downloadsAttached File  image2.JPG   46.57K   17 downloadsAttached File  image3.JPG   43.93K   12 downloads

Fairly straightforward lizard modification.  Added a kangaroo tail and shaved down some skunk arms to get the look while also carving out and moving the original eyes. 

 

 

 

Quail

Attached File  Quail.png   377.27K   9 downloadsAttached File  image5.JPG   45.33K   9 downloadsAttached File  image6.JPG   46.24K   7 downloadsAttached File  image7.JPG   41.89K   3 downloads

Colonel bird head, hawk wires, skunk body, hawk arms, and owl wings= Quail.

 

 

 

Seagull

Attached File  Seagull.png   110.53K   5 downloadsAttached File  image8.JPG   50.9K   9 downloadsAttached File  image10.JPG   40.62K   7 downloadsAttached File  image11.JPG   49K   3 downloads

For whatever reason, I really have the worst lipstick red and pure white paints and they require a real shellacking to have a non splotchy color, which then leads to repeated clunkier coats, which therefore leads to a blah paint job.  Anyways, Seagull is a shaved down hawk head, an orangutan torso, jaguar legs, mouse arms, and colonel bird wings.  The gun is actually from a Russian battle beasts weapon.

 

 

 

Dolphin

Attached File  Dolphin.png   257.01K   5 downloadsAttached File  image15.JPG   42.75K   16 downloadsAttached File  image16.JPG   37.83K   19 downloadsAttached File  Dolphin back.JPG   43.07K   9 downloads

Dolphin is tapir body, rabbit arms with shark leg fins, and ..... MYSTERY HEAD.  Any thoughts or guesses as to which beast the head is originally from??? Does anyone even read captions???  Macod0shus asked me to take some process pics so I can actually show how I made this and I will, once someone guesses correctly.

 

 

 

Seal

Attached File  Seal.png   306.53K   9 downloadsAttached File  image12.JPG   44.03K   17 downloadsAttached File  image13.JPG   34.54K   15 downloadsAttached File  image14.JPG   37.81K   7 downloads

 

I feel like my poor camerawork isn't doing this guy justice, but he ended up being my favorite of this group.  I really feel like he captured the design challenge. Seal is boar legs, pig torso, beaver arms, and a shaved down rabbit head.  Once I saw a semblance or seal in the original rabbit, everything really started coming together.

And so that wraps up the Macod0shus run.  A true thank you again to Macod0shus for the inspiration and optimusdrizzt supplying for some spares.   This definitely pushed me outside my comfort realm, which is always nice.  I considered trying the remaining designs for stag beetle, snail, jellyfish, and hammerhead, but I just couldn't wrap my head around any way I would build them and not ruin them concurrently.  Coincidentally,  I have a moray eel of my own that Ersico is about to paint up for me.

 

Hopefully Macod0shus can come up with some more designs in the future. Or maybe you, yes you reader, have marvelous wondrous concepts, ideas, and images dancing through that brain of yours. I'm already picking through old threads such as:

 

http://www.littlerub...ies#entry364206

 

looking for any ideas.  I have a gargantuan sack of parts just waiting to be assembled. Help a brother out?

My assumption is that you started with a duck head. (or one of the other birds as a second guess)

1. Wrong Beastformers

2.  Thanks Koppenschevelle!  Means a lot as I think you are one of the best customizers out there.  Wait till you see what I have coming up soon.  Ersico is doing some stunning work to really make some builds shine

All right, that's enough. 

 

The answer is:

 

A horse, of course.

 

Attached File  aimage1(1).JPG   110.99K   3 downloads

Yes, I literally line up a picture to the head to see if it was possible/working.  I had cut off the head gear (in one single piece that is actually quite awesome and will be used imminently on something else) and sanded out a basic rough shape, doing my best to preserve as much snout as possible.

Post transfer, but the eye placement still didn't work.  You can see the mark of where I think they should be.  Good thing I had a recently dissected boar head lying about.

After this it was just adding the back shark fin and then putting on a thin paint coat to pic up flaws, sand the flaws down, and repeat (also eventually cutting in a mouth).

LOL Interesting approach.

It´s clear the eyes of the Boar fooled everyone but it does do the job very well there when it comes to the location and placement of the Dolphin eye.

Looking forward to see you progress because these creations are already a huge step compared to the first ones you did, keep it going!
