What can I say about this little guy… you had to be there? *grin* Muley was (I think) the third in the line of unicorn resculpts and I was starting to get the hang of things. I’m not sure what’s scarier, the fact that I actually have reference photos, or that this was technically my second Muleycon (Ripley’s Whimsy was the first).
There is something oddly addicting about adding horns to Mules.Muleycorn – Source
Breyer conspired against me with this mold and they were pretty hard to come by. They weren’t popular (crazy collectors! :P) so the market for them skyrocketed later. I’ll have to go back through, but I think I only ended up painting the two muleycorns and one faux-stone fantasy Mule. Darnit.
There wasn’t much customizing done to this little guy other that the horn and the paint job, so I didn’t both putting him under the Resculpting category. Looking back, I sort of wish I’d given him cloven hooves or thinned the legs and the tail. He’s a very sturdy fella and the nimbleness of the unicorn just didn’t come through as strongly as the donkey.
My camera (and my photography skills) weren’t as good back then, so the scan is much closer to how he looked in person. For some reason the scan was done before I finished painting the teeth– I have no idea why I thought that was a good idea. *sigh*Muleycorn Muleycorn Muleycorn
