 :heeha: I love the Cape Buffaloes! I always thought they looked like rather sad intellectuals. Always deep in thought, but unable to communicate their thoughts to us. This one especially seems to have that look. Love it. Great job Bert.  O0    :clap: :clap: :clap:
Cheers, Val

Bert, can you please post the reference photo for me to look at, there is something wrong with the perspective of the nose and mouth.

Bert, the mouth still worries me, it slopes down far too much on the left side.  O0

Nice work, Bert.  Great details.

Yes, I agree that the mouth seems to extend too darkly on the side.  If it really is that long, it should blend away much lighter.  Hope that made sense.
