Had a chance to get some photos of my 2012 Namibian gemsbok using a Jet Smith hard 90 wall pedestal. It is a nice form that shows the animal's profile off, but doesn't take up too much wall space.
The other was a warthog from a friends 2011 trip to RSA. This was my first warthog and hopefully my last, probably the hardest most time consuming animal I have ever mounted, but very pleased with how it turned out.
Very nice mounts... love the pose on that gemsbok!
Love the detail on the gemsbok.
The Gemsbok is a great pose. And the warthog looks top notch.
They both look fantastic to me.

Best warthog I've seen. Good job

Jett has some very nice forms. You did a nice job on them but for the tusks on the hog and it never hurts to rub it down with some dirt. They are certainly a more difficult animal to mount and one of the ugliest too!
Coachwhip, I know what you mean about dificulty finishing the WH. This was my first attempt doing one and it took a lot of effort to get the coloration and texture to match the live pics I had of him prior to meeting my arrow.

Great trophies and Nice work!! Love working with the Jett forms. Never forget the first warthog, especially when I pulled that cape out and the thing was split from the lower lip down the throat!!????
