Strange things i do in my free time....
Since September ive been sculpting dodo parts in my increasingly sparse spare time, Ive always wanted to create a dodo recreation and Ive finally made some progress on it.
Im not really trying to make a 100% accurate museum model, even if i wanted to i don’t have access to all the refs id need to do so (like a complete skeleton) but i would like to make it as accurate as Im able.
I sculpted the head over a cast of an actual dodo skull, I used photo refs of the Oxford mummified dodo head and the painting by Ustad Mansur (widely accepted as the ONLY work painted from a living dodo)
The foot was sculpted using measurements of the bones of a dodo foot, and photo refs of the preserved Oxford dodo foot as well as refs from turkeys and doves (doves being the closet living relative)
I’ll post updates as i make progress
