Black footed arctic spook by Sharpe19 Black footed arctic spook by Sharpe19
This one have me quite a bit of fuss. Original feet slipped and started to dry rot on me so some new ones were needed.

LED blue eyes
Moving jaw
Posable body
Hand made ears

This cutie was a commission for   dusque_ravelle and and will be going to his home tomorrow. I'm not open for Spooks. Spooks are copyrighted to me. Design ad name is not permitted for public use.

Yes he's dead. Yes, taxidermy is an art. It has been an art for hundreds of years as it takes practice and skill to breathe a bit of life back into remains. Yes he was taken legally and yes it's legal to kill a fox. They are not something to worship, they are not higher than humans. Anyone commenting IS human (unless you have placed your cat/dog/rat/etc. upon the keyboard). Hunting is a necessity even in this day and age. No it is not 'murder'. Look up the definition: "the unlawful premeditated killing of one human being by another." HUMAN KILLING HUMAN. THAT is murder.

No I did not kill him, no I did not have him killed. No he wasn't skinned alive, only PETA pays off people to do that. No he is not used for adult purposes, yes he's handled with care. Why have him then? Taxidermy is an invaluable source for artistic reference from markings to anatomy and fine detail that a camera cannot capture. Get a dog then? Some of us can't. Death is a natural part of life.

Despite what I agree and disagree with in the description, I quite admire the originality and mild macabre style of your art. It is not quite like anything I have ever seen before.

Only if its legal in your state ad you are 18 or over. Then I'm able to accept your commission for one when I open.

Better use than a coat by far! I forget I believe you said some of them come from road kill? Well anyway I think what you do with dead things that were not 'scheduled' to be killed is pretty cool, it's dead, so why not? I love this one, he's soooooooooo preeetttyyy!
