    thank youNap, yes i was lucky to find it at the "fleamarket" of the convention, if you want to paint one the kit is still available at Robot Rocket Miniatures :

    the picture you show is the box art painted by Josua Lai and this is incredible ! what is cool with those great Apes is that they all have different faces,
    i did a search on google images and they go from all black faces to almost human tones :)

    have a great day ! :)

    today's progress,

    i worked a little bit more the faces, corrected the baby's eyes in order to have a coherent light with her mother's ones.
    for the fur it's a long and tedious process, working only with lines in order to simulate the hairs i did it mainly wet on wet, still some light to add :)
    colors for the fur : red leather, orange leather, aldebaran red and gold skin.

    in the end this bust is a real pleasure to paint, sculpt is fantastic !

    Great SBS Franck and a thought provoking piece and the background is very clever ( my Orangutan is swinging its way to me ! )
