Snake, actually. Eunectes murinus. :)

so snake means Eunectes murinus?
Reply
:iconculpeo-fox:
Culpeo-Fox Featured By Owner Dec 6, 2012  Professional General Artist
No. It is the scientific name of the Green Anaconda. Eunectes murinus is greek/latin and means "good swimmer of mice" that derives from its living behaviour (often found in water and aquatic habitat and formerly thought to be a hunter for mice.)

I mostly prefer using the scientific names whenever i describe a snake species because their trivial names are often confusing and deficient.

Those would be awesome. But no, only a lousy harp seal.

Auch hier wieder fantastische Arbeit! Womit hast du die Guten denn bemalt? Da hab ich immer erhebliche Probleme mit!

:iconculpeo-fox:
Culpeo-Fox Featured By Owner Nov 15, 2012  Professional General Artist
Danke! : D

Bemalt wurden die mit Volltonabtönfarben (habe sämtliche fette Tuben noch aus meiner Malerwerkstattzeit mitgehen lassen) und anschließend besprüht mit Fixierspray, damit sich der Kram nicht wieder so leicht abkratzen lässt. Acryl hat sich für sowas auch immer recht gut bewährt.

Kriegt man... Volltonabtönfarben im Künstlerbedarfsladen? Ich habe sowohl Fimo als auch PVC mit Acryl zu bemalen versucht und ersteres ging überhaupt nicht (Wollte eine shitty Chinafälschung aufpimpen), und letzteres hat sich mit dem anschließenden Glanzlack voll nicht vertragen )X

Ich würde mich da eher an den Malerfachhandel wenden, da man die Dinger eigentlich zum Anstreichen von Wänden verwendet (sind konsistenztechnisch allerdings überhaupt nicht anders als Acryl und trocknet auch genauso schnell.). Aber du kannst ja trotzdem mal gucken und fragen.
