I dunno, I think that pose could happen--though most of the time okapi hold themselves a bit squarer even when jumping. The only thing I think is unrealistic is the smallness of this one's rear end--but I can see why you did that to balance the piece. (While they have the sloping of the back like a giraffe, it is not nearly as extreme. Plus most of the females I've seen have a more squared butt and a less sloped back than the males.)

Overall, gorgeous and I love the movement here. :) The lighting and color are also wonderful.
