Poseable Spotted Hyena Voodoo by WormsandBones Poseable Spotted Hyena Voodoo by WormsandBones

Another addition to the ever expanding voodoo line, the hyena voodoo! This fine fellow was a commission, but we will have casts available as well. His skeletal bits and bobs are modeled after Crocuta crocuta, but we certainly can (and will) try our hand at both brown and striped varieties.

As usual, his skull and boney bits are cast resin from our original sculpts, hand painted and assembled using various ball and socket joints beneath his furry faux fur pjs. He can sit, stand, preen, pee on things, eat your KFC bones, lay down, roll over and most importantly, strut. I have mislaid my ruler present, but this fellow is larger than our eusmiluses…(eusmili?) and slightly smaller than our wolf doll.

You have to be good to even make a hyena look this good.

Amazing! That's really neat. Do you make the ball and socket joints or buy them? I've been looking for some joints, but can't seem to come up with anything.

I love your bone-and-body sculpts. They flow seamlessly into one another, without making it look too "zombie rotting corpse" like. They retain all their adorable appeal! :heart:

Usually I get a little freaked out by skull-faced critters like this, but DUDE, this guy is awesome. His face is still a little creepy, but I also find it endearing, especially when you've got him in some seriously fun poses. :D

I think most people get a little weirded out by 'em; we're just sorta odd ducks in that we usually find 'em cuter than most people. I'm so glad you find this fella endearing though! :)

Thank ye! *grin* I'm flummoxed by people who think they're EITHER cats or dogs... they really don't resemble either. There are certain anatomical hallmarks as far as the skull goes that might be confused with a canid, but only really at a glance I think.

Yeah I originally meant "dog" not cat lol!  :blush:  They aren't much closer related to cats though either, epitome of weasle evolution lol ^_^  By the way, my snow cat has taken up residence between my dire wolf skull duggery skull and my tar pit smilodon cast, he brags constantly about why his prominent fang length jaw is superior.... since the Smilodon doesn't have eyes to roll he just grins!  ;)

I've been an admirer of your work for a while. Your jointing and sculpting is always so well done. Are there any jointing tutorials you'd recommend? I sew soft sculptures, but have yet to venture into armatures.

Thank you very much! I'm sure there are tutorials out there, but I'm not entirely sure where - its something worth googling for sure. We'd both definitely advocate for not relying too heavily on tutorials though; there's a lot to be said for trial and error, and I imagine everyone does things a little differently (we make some of our joints ourselves for instance). Best of luck! :)

Love this one!  There's something about the spots which goes really well with the voodoo aesthetic. It's wonderful how expressive he is.
