    Ok Scotty got a big one for you. Using your africa outline w/WildAfricaDecals.com logo I don't know how small you can shrink these down but do a big five with maybe some plains game in the center decal and let me know what the cost would be I'll do some Advertising for you. :thumb:

    Thanks guys, I really appreciate the comments. bluey & spikeT, I have tried several different ways to do the Sable (Euro mount style) I have not been happy with any of the designs. That got me thinking about the Big five animals, and lets face it, Euro mount decals would not have worked. I think this is going to be the path of WildAfricaDecals, doing the skin on animals. It's a lot more work, but they turn out so much nicer.

    Again, I thank you guys for your feedback.

    Bobby, I think the machine is maxed out on how small I can go with these things. The "minimum" I could go (with the logo and the 5) would be around 24 inches. As far as cost, I think we could work something out my friend.

    that's no worries there 35
    how about the nyala has that been tried or maybe a big waterbuck
    them big 5 with the skin on are pretty impressive but mate
    high five on the outcome

    The Sable with the horns sweeping back didn't work for me, nor did the 1/4 angle because then eye sockets just looked weird to me (after the decal was cut) so i am going to work one up "skin on". Nyala should not be a problem, being the horns don't sweep back.

    bluey, I like the way the 5 turned out, I am going to do the Nyala (Euro) but I think I am going to concentrate on the skin on patterns, I think a skin on Gemsbok will look kick ass.

    I think the skin on the animals makes it look more life like and will lead to more sales! I'd like to see what you could do with a bushbuck, waterbuck, sable, oryx and kudu.

    Thank you.

    I am also anxious to see what I can do with bushbuck, waterbuck, sable, oryx and kudu. I will post them as I keep making them. I'll push the machine to it's limit....:user:

    Scott they look great, thinking about it i can see the problem with the sable. i wouldnt give up on the euro mounts as some will prefer them or want both, and all sales are good sales. :thumbsup::beer:

    No, I love the Euro mount decals, I am not giving up on them. Just that I may duplicate some of the Euro mount decals but with "Skin On" i.e. Gemsbok, Kudu, etc.. Like I said before I will keep posting, and again, thanks for the comments gents. Scott.

    Since a sable is mostly black and white, that works out well!

    You have no idea brother what a pain in the ass that one was...:bonk:

    This (Sable decal) is the one I fell in love with, I have probably 6 designs I "HATED!!!" Simple damn animal, but just hard to do. Anyway, happy with the end result.

    Hey Scott see if you can do up a picture to give me a visual so I have an idea of what it would look like. Also had another idea, how about an Impala center Blesbok looking left and a Springbok looking right all fanning out from one shoulder, that way you could keep the animal size down to a minimum but with all three it would be a normal size decal place that in the lower center of your African logo, the noses may stick out a little but I think that would look ok.

    Downfall is that the smaller I go, the more detail they lose. Bobby, could you work up a sketch (good or bad, I don't care) just want an idea of whats in your head. What's in mine may not be what you are thinking.
