hey thats looking pretty good. One thing you might try is to deepen the hair on the rhinox by making coarser cuts in the greenstuff

That is awesome! I can't wait to see the paint job. Carson's suggestion is a good one, the hair could use deepening.

not well i'm affraid. i cant seem to get a look that i like, and my painting skills are ..... laughable. I tried to make those changes to the model itself as well and it just didnt look right so i stoped before i ruined the rest of the model.

Greenstuff is a tough thing to work with, I'm pretty terrible with it myself. Don't give up though, it is an awesome idea and your WIP was showing a lot of promise. If the fur-deepening is what is giving you grief, don't worry about it. The fur looks good as it is, try putting a bit of paint on it and see what happens.

Here is how I'd paint the Rhinox:
I'd prime it with black. Black is a very forgiving base color as anything you miss looks like it is in shadow. Then paint the fur with a light color basecoat like kommando khaki or graveyard earth. After that dries try a few washes of brown ink or flesh wash. I've found that the flesh wash especially gives you a great looking redish-brown fur with minimal effort or skill needed. Afterward you can always drybrush on some highlights in either gray or a lighter brown/khaki to really make it pop. I used the same method with the stagrider I made for my wood elf army and I was really happy with the results.

The wash is the real magic in this method since it runs into the recesses making them a deeper shade than the raised areas giving you good contrast between light and dark with minimal effort. I'd hate to see you give up on this model, I think if you stick with it you'll be happy that you did.
