Riktor- The Silver Fox by Zhon Riktor- The Silver Fox by Zhon
Here's a cute little boy fox named Riktor.
His dark fur gives him a mysterious aura...one of sly actions and sleek appearance.
He loves to lounge in dark places, golden eyes on the lookout, ready to pounce on any dust bunnies that dare to cross his path!

He is a battle veteran. Being trapped once but escaped with only one toe on his left foot (which later healed over)
Now he plans to retire to a home where he can be loved and taken care of.

Has been adopted by :icontwiistedfantasy:

:D :heart: :D

Riktor is a soft mounted taxidermy plush. Flexible plastic-coated wire for poseability allows him to sit in many stances.
NOTE: Before someone says something about his face being short, I purposely made him like that. I wanted to give him a stouter face to look more wolf-like and give him that sinister expression like he wants to go stalk something.

For a second I thought this was a real adoption. I love your work and how you use all the time you need to make something as beautiful and realistic as these. Your work is AMAZING :)

Poseability is determined by the wire skeleton.

Cheapest foam heads come from vandykestaxidermy.com (look in their small mammal gameheads/shoulder forms or just use their search for "fox form")

And that is lucky. Beautiful.
Are you doing the silver for someone?

The silver is my personal silver fox. He will be used for a picture story and then sold off.
(I got a ton of characters for this story being made. My wolverine, pine marten, red fox, silver fox, grey fox, arctic fox, marble fox with multiple tails, cougar, 3 coyotes, fisher, skunk, raccoon, mink, ermine, and black and white wolves)

They wont be ready for sale until the novel is done which should be by late October.

I will be watching him~ I'm sure he'll get a home faster than I have time to say "I".

Nah....rabbits are kindof fun! Not much to their heads as they are a round-ish shape (not complex like a fox or wolf)

Hmmm.... So, it'd be a good start? I love the soft mounts you do. The plushes!!! Trying to think if I could skin it right and all that. Damn... I live in the wrong place for this interest. >< So cal is not hunting ground. Well... not for animals. XP
