There is a world somewhere between reality and fiction. Although ignored by many, it is very real and so are those living in it. This forum is about the natural world. Here, wild animals will be heard and respected. The forum offers a glimpse into an unknown world as well as a room with a view on the present and the future. Anyone able to speak on behalf of those living in the emerald forest and the deep blue sea is invited to join.

Thanks a lot @sanjay yeah they pretty much get stolen on internet but I am in a dilemma if i do copyright i will have to put my real name right? If so, i think it's fine, they can't get the real art anyway, what's would be your suggestion on how to do it?

That will be great if someone is interested in buying art, but mind you I haven't got that many to fill the thread and some are not that good for selling. Yeah there may be other members also. i think anyone interested in art or wildlife or any organization working with wildlife could be a potential  client, i myself am involved in exhibitions in different organization but that is a part time thing as it is very difficult to do art and earn enough money. Currently i am in archeology, Anyway these are my views.

No way, i think iam really fortunate to be part of this community and enjoy diverse opinions, feeds from you all :)

Putting your real name make things easy in future.. especially if you want to file complaint... But if you only care of branding and fame .. so people start recognizing a brand associated with your images then you can use anything... a logo.. some pseudo name etc... use it every where and make it your synonyms in the internet world.. Jimmy is also fine..

Asia is not good place to sell art anymore... Europe, US, Canada, Australia are better option.. So in short go online...
If I see interest in members I will try to create it in future...

Have you heard about general John Nicholson (1821-1857), a legendary British officer in India, who according some sources hunted tigers only with ..... sword, probably the only man in the Raj capable of such a feat.
http://smokymountainsvalleyvoice.com/joh...64-126.htm

"After long days of hunting down rebels, jumped on a horse, grabbed a sword and went tiger hunting - that's right tigers. This feat, was performed by riding round and round the tiger at a gallop, gradually narrowing the circle until at last the swordsman is near enough to deliver his blow. The tiger, it is said, follows the flying figure of the horseman, waiting an opportunity to spring upon him, but eventually becomes too bewildered to act."

@Jimmy , having an obvious painting talent maybe you can try to draw a dramatic scene of hunting of tiger by this desparately brave man and even offer your picture to some British newspapers, I don't know about somebody tried to do this yet? The only weapon Nicholson used was a cavalry officer sword model 1840's-1850's, probably same used in Crimean war; and of course a horse. This man was 2 m tall and had a Hercules body building. Here you can see some images of John Nicholson:

 @Rishi  @Pckts   do you have more info about Nicholson, do you think hunting of a tiger only with cold weapons is something real, or these are only legends?

In wiki is written:
"Horses and camels were used by cavalry officers in the 17th century India, which they found to be more reliable and less unpredictable than elephants. After chasing the tigers to exhaustion, the riders would gallop around the tigers in ever decreasing circles, and then kill the tiger with a sword.[2] "

Well, horses (and humans) have much more endurance than tigers, so it can make sense that humans, once facing a exhausted tiger, could kill it much easier with bare sword. But any less of that tired tiger, and the human would get shredded to pieces.

Does he really look like this to you?

Is #118 your work?


@Jimmy
So sorry for not replying then man, I forgot to subscribe to the thread and been kinda busy. The rhino was 12 cm long. I've never done paper mache; I started modelling clay when I was a child, never had any type of lessons so I wouldn't know what to tell you, except that if you want to carve you indeed need specific tools to do it, as for modelling clay you can pretty much use anything you want. On the other hand, I'd love to be able to paint, how much time took you to be where you are? I have many ideas for wildlife paintings but I lack the means to do it.

For sure Nicholson didn't look like that as long as Victorian Age British officers didn't show their genitals to the surrounding people.... (as in Hercules sculpture)

Yeah, I'm sure that uniform managed to perfectly dissimulate his massive weightlifter physique... And "good" one dude, trying to strawman me by focusing on the statue's package... Shows you know what's important, lol.


Whatever... Here's another one of mine, a Megaloceros giganteus. I'll post more pics when I found them.

@Wolverine yup i can try some sketches of that but im a bit busy in other things to do any detail works, @Shir Babr Great work,i would like to do the same in sculptures, but yeah it presumably takes whole lot of time to get better at it, I say in paintings it takes around 4-5 years in case you have some artistic knack at it

@Jimmy or anyone, Can you guys make a drawing which I can set as background for WildFact ? (I love your drawing Jimmy)
Try to show green nature with wild animals. Highlight should be in upward and downward area (since they are more visible)
