Young Zebra
« on: May 01, 2006, 19:33:17 »
I just made an update on my homepage with my latest customizing work: a little zebra.

It is astonishing to me that PM has produced cubs respectively young animals/foals/etc. for bears, pandas, tigers, panthers, elephants, giraffes, and yes even for unicorns, but not for zebras. And this although there is a mould available which can be used with another base color and some additional imprints for a young zebra: the foal (analogous to the white tiger cub, which has been derived from the lion cub).

I'm awaiting your "Go" and will send you photos (in the well-known format) with what I have so far -- 'cause I have a few animal customizing still in the pipeline ...  ;)

It's absolutely ADORABLE, Jochen! :love: :love: :love:

I wouldn't be surprised if this custom inspires Playmobil to produce their own Zebra foals. ;)

The stripes you painted look so neat and the pattern matches perfectly with the adult versions. :o



Psst. Tim, can I interest you in a pic of Perkey for the custom section at Animobil?

That is awesome Little Jo! I cannot imagine Geobra making a young zebra that looks any better - yours is perfect.  :)9  Did you paint it by hand?

Thank you all for your praise.

Thanks  :-[ :D That was the plan: making customizings which are (for non-Playmobil-fans for sure  ;)) "not distinguishable" from Geobra items ... so it seems that (at least this work) was a success.


Did you paint it by hand?

The base color white is airbrushed, the black stripes and the brown stress are painted by hand with a fine brush.
