Rhino
« on: August 15, 2016, 02:30:53 PM »
There have been a lot of Rhino's posted over the past few days on facebook
for the project Guido Verhoef has been organising so I thought I would make one as well.

It's not quite finished yet and I have been building the rhino slightly different to how I usually make my designs.

Hoping to finish it off later and then no doubt will post a couple of pictures

I made the rhino a little at a time. It was sitting here next to the computer
and I got thinking about the look before trying to see if the idea would work.

I normally twist away gun ho so to speak trying different things, this design had a little more thought.

I'm going to have a play with this design again today, I have already made the legs with a 350 balloon.

Hope you don't mind me crashing your thread Graham (there is a joke in there somewhere, crashing rhinos)

Here is my rhino effort for the rhino project.

This is version two, the legs are from 350's, a few extra 160's for skin/body texture.
Still with the Ivory horns.

Good to see some rhinocerosses (good plural?)

Here is my usual design for a rhino.
(For those with a sharp eye, it's not a Rob Driscoll design; Rob uses some of my designs which is okay)

It's because you are and will always be one of the top balloon artists in the world Patrick ;)

I am going to have a go at a rhino soon!!

You know what Patrick I am pleased you said that, I used this head design back in 2013 for my 365 and forgotten where I had seen it so thank you for that, I will endeavour to tell people it is yours from now on :D Thank you
